Interesting that you pointed me to reference Ryan Wood. I actually was browsing the blogs and found his page, thought it was interesting, but never really had the guts to step out of my comfort zone and go for that style of painting. I spent roughly 12 hours on this piece trying to apply the techniques he uses in his paintings. I really had fun with it. Im going to try to get the rest of them to this quality as soon as I can, since the rest are still flat colors. Thanks for the suggestion. Any way to improve this would be great also, thanks!
