My very own pirate!

Hello everyone, just starting my first project here! I'm very excited and hope all goes well =D

Since I just got started with this class, there is not much to upload, just my pinterest board, which I'm still adding artwork to.

I'll be sketching soon, and I'll keep you all posted about the development!

UPDATE (Jun 24)

Ok, so here are the first sketches I did for this project. If you guys have any comments, be wecolme to share with me!

Also, I don't know right now which character to choose, so if you have a favorite one, please let me know =D

UPDATE (Jun 27)

Hello, here is my progress so far. 

I've decided to vectorize these two dudes for now. But hopefully I'll have time to come back and do the other pirate. Haven't gotten into Photoshop yet, so they are still in need of some clipping masks ;D

Also, these are not the final colors, just wanted to block them away. 

Fell free to comment and criticize.

UPDATE (Jun 30)

Today I started rendering. I think it might need a little bit darker shadows on the skin and some work on the beard. Please tell me what you think and how I can make it better! Still need to texture it, also.

UPDATE (Jul 17)

Finally had some time to resume working on this guy. This time I went through the color adjustment and texturing phases. As always you're all welcome to tell me what you think!

I absolutely loved learning this process and working on this illustration!

Thank you Matt and all of you who took the time to take a look and comment on my project.
