I shipped off one of my last Christmas commissions today and prepping the other commission to be picked up within the next week or so. I’m in that weird down time where I don’t have a commission I need to get done and I’m getting ready to visit home for the holidays. SOOOOOO,

I figure now is a wonderful time to reinterpreting an old piece. One thing in particular I enjoy about re-imagining these older pieces is deciding which techniques to keep and what elements to change. For example I haven’t used black outlines as much as I use to and that was my bread n’ butter back in the day so I’ll most likely use that here. That being said it’ll be fun to keep these characters more or less in their original form from 2005 but give them the full 2019 treatment. (damn, is this painting really 14 years old?)
