Reinvent


Reinvent
Originally uploaded by Toyebot.
Hello,
Back for Illustration friday. When we try to reinvent ourselves, one of the first things we do is change our appearance. So adding a new coat of paint is just the beginning. Cheers.

Photoshop - I tried to approach this like an acrylic or oil painting as much as possible. I sketched this out directly in photoshop, painted it, overlay some textures to give it some grit, then painted some more.
