pins vs pink

hello everybody!
my name is pins and i'm very excited to be here
amongst the many great artists and illustrators.
this is my first post and i've decided to show
a step by step thingy of how i do things.
urmmm this is not really a tutorial but
jus a sharing of ideas and techniques.

first of i start with a sketch.



then i throw in a simple bkgrd color and start to "painting with photoshopping."
the sketch is on a separate bkgrd with multiply as the setting.
i've never used pink in my work before so i've decided to give it a try...



now i paint over the layer of the sketch to cover up my messy lines haha
i've been told by many great artists to keep my lines clean
but to their dismay and horror i jus find it difficult to do so.
i like tidiness but when it comes to drawing i'm very messy...
i mus change...



i told myself ... "hey the john abruzzi hair has got to go..."
so goodbye long hair to mr pink warrior guy bye bye and hair no more...
the power of photoshopping.
now i need to enhance the bkgrd with a tint of blue.



almost there but mr itchy fingers pins have decided to add some little highlights
and lines to define the outline??? urmmm a small difference but hope you can see
hehe...



and it's almost done and i've decided to stop because the more
i stare at it the more mistakes i see...
so good bye for now or i'll never stop painting this dude...
work can never be finished...

i'll look forward to beer and future encounters with members of O.I.C...
need to go home and watch prison break!!!
wait... it's monday!!!
'DOH!
