I very very rarely go back to paintings that i've already declared done, but the particular one for some reason stuck in my head very strongly recently, and i just HAD to. I was never happy with his face- it looked too dirty, and the eyes were violet, rather than my usual blue i tend to paint Ryan's as. So, i went in to fix the face and ended up fixed the skin tones for both of them. I'll have an even better Image soon, lacking flash-glare, but for now, hope ya enjoy.
This one is of Ryan and Nari of book one again, and OMG it was HARD! Iíve actually been sitting on it for over a year, and itís got to be one of the hardest character portraits I have ever done! Iím not totally happy with it, but at this point, I am just done
Forgive the horrible flash-glare. I hate my camera
