Like a Boss by KatieHofgard Like a Boss by KatieHofgard
A by-the-hour commission for ~Zardiss of her chupacabra character! This one was quite a challenge, there are a lot of costume details here that I took for granted and thought wouldn't take long. So I underestimated the time for it by almost 2 hours.

12 hours in Photoshop with an Intuos 3 tablet

I'm OPEN for hourly commissions like these right now! Please check out the journal below for more info.

Awesome movement in the pose, love the bright colours too. Looks so sunny! Makes me miss summer. I love the details like the reflections in the glasses also.

Really really cool! I love the spotted flesh and the way you did the tongue. One thing though, no matter how long I look at the glasses, I can't figure out what I am looking at. It looked as if the glass only fills up the top part of the frame. I'm just a little confused. Sorry. But otherwise, thsi is breathtaking.

I see the sky and horizon reflected in the glasses. It's pretty clear to me 8)

Well, it's not to me, but like I said it isn't a big deal. The picture and the character are still amazing.

The blue line down the middle of the glasses is where the reflection from the sky ends. The stuff below that is the eye/cheek behind the glasses. If you mentally remove that blue line, you'll see what I mean (I thought the same thing when I first saw it).

I don't think I understand but it's fine. It doesn't take away from the picture. All it did was ellicit a few moments of head scratching. XD
