taking a leap by loish taking a leap by loish
taking a more cartoon-inspired approach. although it was not intended and no refs were used, i see a lot of `betteo influence here so i must credit him since he's one of my favorite artists here on dA!

drawn in photoshop CS3 with an intuos3 tablet in about 8 hours. used a chalky brush that comes standard with photoshop cs3. textures from cgtextures.com , tips on how to use textures can be found here - [link] and for other tips check out my f.a.q - [link]

Hi Loish!
It's a true honor to see the influence of Patricio Betteo in a French artist like you.
Patricio is a good guy (I meet him 2 or 3 times) and a mexican citizen as me. I'm really proud to have in Mexico probalby one of the best artist of the world!
Congratulations for your great homage!

Greetings from Mexico City!

It really looks like a painting. I like this other style of your, very texturized and I'd say more solid, as in heavy, but equally beautiful!
