Finally! It is complete! A picture of my friends and I!
R to L: Ann, Me, Kathie, and Andre.
(Yeah, I'm the crazy looking one....I tend to photo bomb my own pictures LOL)
This is a Christmas gift to my friends as a lot happened and I wasn't able to buy what I wanted
I really do hope they like it!
Most will probably think I "cheated" on this as I did draw a quick cartoony sketch over the photo and then used that photo just as reference afterwards. I'll post the process later, but I assure you that the sketch was only to get the positioning right. If that is cheating, then I am guilty [link]
However, all of the coloring and the background and inking...everything was drawn by hand just referencing the photo. I didn't want it to be exact as I wanted us to look a bit realistic but cartoony as well. Thus I took a lot of artistic liberty with it.
This took me a few days to color and I think it's probably the best blended digital coloring I've done to date!
