I decided to sit down and practice some coloring and painting with the tablet (because I've been slacking on that) and AlexMikomi was there and was kind enough to allow be to butcher his character in the digital medium.
Clearly I need more practice... in a lot of areas. But this is progress. I'm learning all kinds of things (like how this looks better if you back up or squint your eyes a bit - no a bit more... a bit more... are they closed? Perfect!). Wooo!
Oh! I said I'd draw him something - this isn't it.
