Another guy! Yay, I'm getting better at them! This is a guy I made up who has the power to control fire and penchant for flying/falling stylistically in rather gloomy and moody areas. Great for the background : ) I drew him on paper, scanned him on, and then I built the picture using the scan on the background as a reference point and builidng the picture, via paths, dodge/burn, airbrush, smudge and blur, layer by layer on top of it. Then I deleted the background layer and made the green, moody, new one. Does this count as making it from scratch on the computer? I only used the drawing as a reference point, I didn't actually keep any of it in the final copy. This one took me a few months working on it on and off sround uni. It's the first body that I've done on gimp so please tell me how I can get better. I think that the chest is a little flat but I need to know whre to put the shadows and highlights to fix it. COnsidering that I'm female, I can't really use myself as a reference point ... ^_^ Anyway, any comments you can make would be VERY helpful P.S. do you like his inability to button shirts?
