Cleptomaniacs by BenHickling Cleptomaniacs by BenHickling
The original sketch by Twulf can be found here: [link]

I've been working on this on-and-off for ages, so I've no idea how long it took overall. That doesn't really matter though, since the main objective was to get better at painting.

Clouds are surprisingly relaxing to paint~

Enjoy!

Would you mind to spoil the joke – why? I know the characters, but haven't played their games...

He doesn't really have one leg, I think the artist who drew the sketch was just going for a stylised and exaggerated pose/perspective

Kenta: To paint, clouds may be easy for you, but they are BRATS when i try to color them....they never seem to turn out right....

Still, cool deviation!

so much fun those games were... it's a shame that Rare went to Microsoft. Nuts and Bolts is the only one I haven't played because I don't have a 360...

I adore this painting. You've really shaped the sketch into something it looks like you could reach out and touch. I generally strive to produce something this effective. It would mean the world if you could possibly put together a tutorial?

Thanks :) I'm hoping I can put together some kind of walk-through eventually, I just don't want to teach anyone bad habits since I'm still learning this stuff myself!

I seriously doubt you have anything that bad going on. The results speak for themselves. Absolutely loving your stuff mate, if you ever do put together a walkthrough I'll be on it.

I love their wacky cartoony facial expressions, and the way you drew them. I like the sunset-style background coloring to. Nice job on the clouds & grass to, they look pretty real.
