Game of Thrones, Peter Dinklage by IsaacJLitman Game of Thrones, Peter Dinklage by IsaacJLitman
Second piece working as if I were Cran D'ache in Photoshop =)

Game of Thrones, Peter Dinklage; Fall 2012.
Digital: Intuous Wacom, Photoshop, no tracing, one layer, 20 hours.
Reffence: [link]

I did this piece to improve my understanding of values and color, different textures, and to figure out what brushes I need- or to create to execute those textures in future pieces. From this study I can apply what I learn to later illustrations :)

Example: The armor was created by the two brushes I would normally use for either clouds or skin. A light blue polish of clouds made all the difference.

Why is this not a daily deviation? It's much better than most the shit that they choose.

Really amazing.

I see all the comments about one layer...can I assume you are traditionally trained? I actually find it easier to work in one layer much of the time.

Thank you, 

I just applied what I knew about crayons and blending on this one :) 
And I do work in layers for cell shaded pieces, but when it comes to realism I just got back to the basics.

AMAZING. I thought it was a photo too. Even after looking it over several times, I can't tell it's a painting. Great choice for your subject as well. Dinklage is The Man!
YOU ROCK!!

What kind of tablet did you use? And, how many layers did this take? XD
