Hi, I have made this digital painting playing for my Italian website.
As it means Uncle Rip and I am recruiting workforce to create contents in it, I have thought about the old Uncle Sam and that's the result.

I am not quite satisfied of the result as it needs more detailing work, but I wanted my end line to be today as I don't want to spend too much time on the site and so I consider it finished :)

The biggest problem that I had was with the face as I had made a too realistic copy of the Uncle Sam's body (except for the hand which only has 4 fingers) and the face was always too caricatural for the body.

    Great foreshortening!

    I love the loose painterly feel in the clothes Ale, and the overall image looks great. good positioning of highlights and shadows. Especially considering this is made up entirely from imagination, thats a real test of any artists skills.
    Thanks Cindy.
    I hope I can reach the level of perfection that I have seen around with drawings made by fantasy... in both ways, traditional and digital.
    The only thing that I miss when I work traditionally is the undo command... that's so handy!! :D
