Cherry Mishmas and all that! Its been a mad rush to the end of the year and I haven't posted anything for a couple of weeks - so here's a little something for the crazy season. Sketched on paper, painted in photoshop and here posted on the interwebs.

I imagine most crocs as being just a bit annoyed all the time ;)

Hilarious! Love the piece of her shirt in the croc's teeth, and the scratches on her belly. Close shave, huh?

I was wondering why Joanna Lumley was hunting crocodiles?

You're most welcome, your art is absolutely incredible!  

Would love to see a piece similar to this 'Outback' character, but with an anaconda that she's just wangled with, maybe in your future works.
:D (Big Grin)

How do you get so perfect smoothness on your gradients man? I cant spot any brush stroke
Reply
:iconloopydave:
Loopydave Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2015  Professional
I paint the images quite large, I set my brush to a low opacity (usually around 10%) and build up grades that way, often with the standard photoshop hard edge brush, but sometimes the soft edge brush for better grading.
Here's a step by step which demonstrates going from rough brush work to smooth brush work loopydave.deviantart.com/art/p…
Hope that helps!
Cheers

Indeed I am... I lack the skills required to wrestle a crocodile, and all I ate for christmas was chicken and beef.... far less exotic than what she'll be cooking up! ;)
