I've made quite a few msn avatars lately, but wasn't sure a 150x150 image was worth posting. So here's sort of a making-of instead. It started as a homework, and the 3rd step is what the teacher received. But i liked the character enough to spend some more time on it. I won't go into too much detail. Partly because i don't exactly remember what i did ;p 1. Sketch. 2. Lineart. Should have re-done it. I liked the sketch better :( 3. Color ! Some texture too, but it doesn't show at this resolution. 4. Here i tweaked the colours a little. Looks more 'natural' that way. 5. Cropped to make an avatar. I've made it bigger here so you see it better. 6. Decided to re-do the colouring another way. Why not ? 7. Mixed 5 and 6. Resulted in more natural colours, and added detail. Good :3 8. Added another light source, toyed with the colours a little. 9. Once my colour tweaks (and a couple filters) resulted in this, i decided i had played enough with the lil' chap. I renamed the avatar HiddenEvil, and have been using it for various forums since.
