New Painting in the Works

I haven't posted much in this here blog of mine. I'm not much of a writer. I usually never have anything interesting to write about.

Today though, I would like to share with you a new digital painting I am working on. It's from a very old sketch of mine that I did about 3 years ago. I started painting it back then, but I ended up hating it, and then I lost the program that I was painting it with.

I did pick up the sketch once again, and tried to paint it in Photoshop. Once again, it didn`t turn out the way I wanted it to. So I abandoned it again.

A few weeks ago a friend of mine gave me a copy of the program that I lost. I was pretty happy and wanted to start painting illustrations again. I didn't have anything new to work with, so I went back to my old folders to look for some sketches.

I found the old files of the sketch and thought, "Well I know I improved my skills over the years, so lets have a go at it".

Here's my first time I tried to paint the sketch.

The time I tried to paint it using Photoshop:

Now here is the same sketch that I am currently working on:

I plan on finishing it, as it is going the way I wanted. I plan on doing more digital paintings and hope this one will get me out of my art block. So far I've spent about 8 hours on it. And I'm no where's near done.
