Indiana Jonesin' for some color
Talk about your tough act to follow!
I'll be a 'not-yet-ready-for-MAD-magazine' player for quite some time to come, I'm sure. :)
While I normally wouldn't go this far with a grayscale rendering, I just couldn't help myself. I was having too much fun and wanted to see how far I could go without adding any colour. I've realized that I could probably go another month, but then I'd be adding individual stitches to the clothing, and each freckle on his face. And really, there's no point to that. I took out the texture in the whip (except for the the part in his hand) because it was distracting, and was way too crisp, so I blurred it up and I think it was the right choice.
Colour will be done by the 17th...it has to be as that's the deadline. I'll be sorry to see this one end, but since it's going to be my postcard submission to magazines, I'm looking forward to seeing it dropped into the mail.
Sad to see this course ending.
