|Keith and Black Lion in Painter12|
Of course, while painting this I was thinking of a good cover of a video game. I kept thinking back to the old NES games like Golgo 13 and Xenophobe. So I wanted to make Keith the hero with a gun with his 'faithful' Black Lion creeping in the shadows (i know, i know he's supposed to pilot it).
I wanted to redesign Keith's jacket too. It seemed a bit like a windbreaker jacket, so I made it a red leather jacket similar to a motorcycle jacket I wear (i own a Kawasaki Meanstreak). I have been trying to pay more attention to details and edges which really make a fabric and textile seem believable. Also I think I am getting the hang of hands. Short hatching with a chalk brush works best, and redefining the lighting with charcoal helps to unify the overall shape. Throughout the entire painting, I kept an eye on Hard, Soft and Lost edges as well.
Done in Painter12.

After I paint princess Allura, I'm celebrating with a Guinness and 18 year old Glenlivet. Maybe twice.
God Bless and cheers
