Sorry but the posts are a bit outta order but here is a final final with a bit of depth added after Mr. Dudra's crit of previous posts and those that follow are the ones that preceded it.... enjoy
So heres a little progression piece. The original sharpie sketch can be found earlier in my posts. So the first one is just color. Medium flesh tone and some background depth (*slacker secret: BG is just the stock gradient option in PhotoShop 7...yeah eat a dick, I'm still using .7)Here it is with a bit more depth.
And finally here it is with more steps than necessary.
