Time for some teamwork action.

I asked Meister a little while back for a simple line drawing of me. I needed something to use every time a website popped up that little human silhouette with a question mark for an avatar picture. Of course, my plan of coloring this drawing right away went horribly awry and I have been using the black and white line drawing as my avatar everywhere.

I have finally colored this digital me, and to top it off, I even managed to get the shading done in a reasonable facsimile of “quickly”. So I am posting the process images. Line Art, then Colors and finally shading for you all to enjoy.

There we have it. Me, digitized.

I can assure you, Meister took some artistic liberties. I certainly wish I looked as awesome as my digital counterpart does, unfortunately, we don’t get to choose how we’re rendered.

It would be pretty cool if we could all choose our own preferred rendering options. I assume fellows like Meister and Myself would end up with some sort of hand-drawn, cel-shaded form.  Others might choose to go with the watercolor or stained glass options. Don’t forget to add a gaussian blur!

Alright, I’m done with the Photoshop “Filters” references, I promise.
