I downloaded a truck load of concept art that went into Team Fortress 2, and I tried to decipher how it was painted. I then explored deeper into other ways to paint my characters, the one on the far right being how I normally do; in my flat graphic kind of way. I gained something really valuable from this experiment, mostly knowledge that I really don't know how to paint at all. But I think I learned something about how to from just doing it.
This one.. I don't know why I did this. It just asked to be colored.
Enjoy the show.
