Mexican Sunset


An illustration that I finally had time to digitize last week. I did the line art in Illustrator and the coloring in Photoshop. I played around with the gradient tool and managed to get a sunset look in the background, which inspired me to give it a sunset theme when I did the shading and the subtle glowing effects.

I tried to practice my facial anatomy, or at least spacing everything right, when I first sketched this out, and except for the neck I think it turned our alright.

Comments and critique always appreciated!

your definitely improving

This is a step up compared to your other works, and I can definitely see some growth in your drawing skills. Nice shading, and I like that light source, gives everything a warm soft glow look.
Excellent work DS!
