This one was fun. I was really inspired by Carlos Huante at the time (not to say I'm not now), and this picture was a turning point for me rendering-wise. I put alot more thought and time into how realistic characters were made... and I think, I showed alot of improvement.
Here is my black prismacolor scan, with the final photoshop coloration. The guys from D'Artiste contacted me when I was on vacation in London, and asked to use this as their cover. I was elated but they did want me to alter the background color to give it more contrast and punch... eh, I guess it worked. :P
