Kikivuli Portrait by KatieHofgard Kikivuli Portrait by KatieHofgard
A by-the-hour commission for Kikivuli, of her female striped hyena character. I think I enjoyed the feathers the most. =)

4 hours in Photoshop with an Intuos 3 tablet

Amazing expression. My gold-eyed German Shepherd will look at me like that when I tell him what to do. It makes me smile everytime.

I use a brush made by *Dreamspirit that emulates acrylic paint better than Photoshops default brushes, it gives it an overall painty texture!

Is that a relatively new addition? I remember you saying sometime before that you only used default brushes.

I don't think so. She emailed it to me, but gave me permission to share with others as well! If you email me I'll send it to you. =)

and when you draw a line of yellow colour and next to it a line of red colour when you blend dont you somehow ruin the texture in between? (thanks for the help)

It looks very nice, you didn't post the traditional badge you did? the one I've seen on livestreaming looked very good to me (though I had to go before I see the final result). x'3
