For Sean's 28th birthday

Happy birthday, buddy.

"Sean," Digital Painting, 2010

Stats: 6 1/2 hours, 4 layers, 2 brushes, and 3 tools in all, aka "6.5/4/2/3." Used only one layer for the character strokes and used plenty of smudge tool to clean as I went. I'm getting more comfortable with relying on the smudging method, but my hand still isn't very graceful as I draw on the tablet, so I find myself eating up a lot of time with redrawing lines. I used the source photo to help save time with nailing down the proportions, which I would normally do 100% by hand. I gotta keep life drawing to maintain that skill, though.
