CG Takeshi Kaneshiro by lilfuzz6 CG Takeshi Kaneshiro by lilfuzz6
The reason why I took so long to submit something for the new year was this.

Second digital painting. First digital 'portrait'. Ever since that Squall piece I used as practice, I've never done airbrushing, so here it is! This is a portrait of Mr. Takeshi Kaneshiro. This hottie's a mix of Japanese and Chinese heritage, one of my favorite asian actors by far =) you can see him in House of Flying Daggers.

I'm soooo glad this is done. I have to say, I am quite satisfied with the result. Please, don't forget to click on the links below to see details and WIPs. This is NOT a photograph though it was referenced.

Medium: ArtRage for outline, Photoshop and Tablet for the rest (Smudge tool and soft brushes own me)
Time: Anywhere from 20- 30 hours
Note: The hair is hastily done, it's.. very.. bleh. I got impatient! Background was airbrushed too, the easiest part of the whole piece =)

EDIT: Minor changes to hair (more details and highlights on the right side) and due to popular request, I put up a BIGGER version of the image. Full view to see difference.
