I went to GDC this year and it was recommended to me by a few studios to record my painting process, so I did! Sketched with micron pen on brown paper, scanned in and painted entirely in Photoshop CS4 in approximately 5 hours and 40 minutes. Song “Operation Ground and Pound” by Dragonforce was removed by Youtube. You can play that song on your own while you watch it and it will time out almost perfectly. My portfolio:

Software: PhotoshopI’m hoping that people won’t look at the Bible and click the “Back” button, and actually hear me out… I’ll make it short.Whether you believe in God or not, I think everyone can agree that they don’t like to be stereotyped or judged by other people, and that’s what this is about.How could someone so bizarre ever be considered normal (let alone sane)? It’s not our place to judge others.Anyways… much thanks to those that even view this :).It’s a guy, by the way :p.>> Hi resolution image << (
