Arrrrg! Getting into the scallywag spirit with this one. This is a original creation for the Gasparilla Arts festival in Tampa. The final will be done on 8ftx8ft concrete pastel board. I've never worked on that surface before so I hope it turns out well. I ended up redoing that Gem about 15 times. Not sure if its right but, I've run out of time. I hope I can get a better one done on the final one. Time: About 18+hours. Sketching painting on and off, total time unsure.Program: Photoshop CS3Created using Wacom Cintiq 21UX
