This guy is from a story I'm creating. I'd tell you about him, but then... you know. I hope to one day format the story as a graphic novel.
I find it easier to create organic shapes with paint, but hard and straight edged surfaces would drive me crazy. I would always seem to lose the gesture that's found in the original sketch. Because of this I would often avoid drawing things like this guys machine gun arm. I'm not even sure how this painting got finished...I mean...for sure I should of stopped at that gun and thrown my computer out of the window in frustration. Hah!
