Been REALLY busy with a big freelance project I can't discuss at the moment, but here's a little something I made during a work hangout on Google.

I've been super busy with freelance stuff, which is great! Except it leaves me little time to devote to atelier work or personal projects at the moment (at least for the next month, at least.) But I've been continuing to experiment with some painting techniques in Photoshop. Like this Frog King!
It's the same sort of method I've started to use on the Orc portraits, and that I've begun to use in gouache - close knit tiles of value and hue to suggest form turning. If I need to break up a hard edge I create noise along that edge (as evidenced in the nose area of the frog.) Doing a noise filter over it all helps blend it a bit further.

Here's the latest finished Orc portrait...Stog the Pitkeeper. This time around I really utilized a tiling technique to put in swatches of color and value to build it up, I think it came out really successful.
