Apologies for the lack of personal art lately - talk about swamped.

Really trying to improve on certain techniques with my digital art.
I'm completely under-practiced when it comes to using traditional paints so the ability to replicate oil and acrylics through Photoshop is something I'm keen to work on. All that pressure of slapping actual paint down when I can just ctrl-z my mistakes and alter 'medium' with the click of a button - just seems to make more sense for a lazy-ass like myself.
I've also come to terms with the fact that there is no rule to say that I can't over-sharpen my work. The extra noise and grittiness enhances the traditional look, I think.

And using the combination of traditional textures and digital 'softness' harmoniously is challenging but fun.
