After spending a whole year at Vancouver Film School using a fancy 24HD Wacom Cintiq, I had to get used to my Huion Kamvas again.
For that, I painted this Sonic head just for fun. I wanted to do something relaxing that wouldn't require too much brainpower, which usually means painting. This time, the approach was 100% painted. No drawings or sketches underneath before painting, I just started blocking out the shapes and refining as I go.
It worked surprisingly well! However, I will not use this approach too often as I feel it could sacrifice the gesture.
