Pointer (alpha)

Upon request, I have the first version of the below picture here. Almost all of my digital painting work is done in Corel Painter. I initially(and probably still do) thought the beach scene would be a little more interesting, but gave it up in favor of a easier though less interesting background. I would love to hear which you think is more appealing. Also, on the right is a drawing/finish contrast, my new underdrawing method is pretty quick and messy with the felt tip pen tool.

Wow a background! I'm so proud! I knew it would happen someday.... I like this one.

Well, great background, Dave, may be this new version is more story-telling than the previous one, like an old mafioso giving a lesson to the young generation during his vacations in Miami... personnaly, I prefer the first one for its surrealistic mood.

For what my comments are worth (2 cents, I like the beach scene. It may be that a tank top and a visor would help the character feel more intagrated. By the way, I really dig the preliminary drawing. It has great spontaneity and energy.

I like the beach scene better. I think maybe a dollop of sunscreen or something on the finger would make it fit better into the scene as well. It's still amazing though.

Yeah, I like the one with the background. He seems to have located the ocean.

Привет David!Давно я утебя не был на блоге!Мне очень нравятся твои серьёзно ироничные персонажи!:o)
Надеюсь ты ещё не забыл русский язык.

I vote for the beach too. I think he's pointing out the really hairy fat guy that's wearing a thong.
