The Remarkably Sage Frogbeast

Really happy how this latest digital painting came out. It has been a while since I've done one (not for a client) that I took all the way to finished detail. 

During a portfolio review with the venerable Chris Oatley I got some good feedback that I have a bunch of sketches I could take to the next level with a more finished look. This is the first fruits of following through on that advice. 

It's amazing how many more areas of improvement your eye begins to notice as you continue on with the work. Things that looked reasonably okay as a sketch don't hold up when the work gets more refined. In this particular case, the character evolved as well - the act of painting was part of the discovery. Really encouraging process, hoping to do more!
