I just fell over. THE DETAIL ON THIS. TEACH ME HOW TO MAKE IT LOOK PAINTY. I want to paint digitally so bad. This is beautiful though. I love the intense lighting, it's... INTENSE. And the expression definitely tells me that you are ready to kick some boooty.
Your shading just keeps looking more and more amazing. Then again, it's always amazing, because it always fits what you're going for? Or at least it looks like it fits? xD To me, it looks like it could easily have come from a professional cartoon or something. All you have to do is perfectly animate something of that detail. -shot-
