The Chief by Charlie-Bowater The Chief by Charlie-Bowater
Iíve been pretty unsatisfied with my own work lately, it was beginning to feel pretty stagnant. I feel like Iím starting on a whole new learning curve, which is nice. As much as I appreciate all the previous positive feedback on my work, I donít want to be known as Ďthe chick that draws the pretty girls!í So anyway! A fresh painting. Iím ashamed to say Iíve never really painted an old person (holy crap, wrinkles are fun.) I can officially scratch that off my list! This was a total breath of fresh air :]

Photoshop & Wacom Intuos 3, around 3-4 hours.
Little group of references I used: [link]

More updates on my blog as always.

Old native chief is the perfect practice for wrinkles, that and Mother Teresa. You should do more native, warriors, war parties, tribal ceremonies, have some fun.
