So i came across this thread way late - through seeing bumskee's gallery in FF - absolutely love your style and ability, and was thrilled to find this thread. i had been very inspired and i wanted to try this exercise. and doing it makes me want to try many more exercise. so enlightening...
Ive checked out this whole thread, ever letter, up to page 22 but it just kept going - almost 3 years now, damn.
so here is what i came up with - sketch was so basic it wasnt worth posting
step 1 - basic fill in
step 2 - blending n stuff?
step 2a - more blending (heh)
@gamerhomie Yes man that looks really stunning! the colors are brilliant really nice natural paint strokes
