very quick speed paint at lunch. maybe 10-15min.
trying to get more painterly with photoshop because i've been doing too much line work lately. i don't fully understand all the knobs and dials, but i'd suggest playing around with the mixer brush (under the normal photoshop [B] brush tool) to get some of these effects. basically you can get a multicolored brushstroke and blend pretty easily.
Marian--Thanks! I'll probably paint it if I get a chance, but it depends on getting a chance... which is kind of hard right now due to family stuff. Yeah, Will is cool to work with. I don't always get on the same projects as he does, but it's fun when I do.
