Raymondo pic for Jo, revisited by zpxlng Raymondo pic for Jo, revisited by zpxlng
Here's an artwork from a few years back; original is here:

[link]

It's pretty popular, but I was never happy with the colouring. So I spent part of today polishing it up in Photoshop. What you see here is much closer to what I originally intended but didn't have the skill to pull off.

It's nice to finally be satisfied with this picture! At least for the next four-and-a-half years.

If you're a fan of the original version, I'd really like to hear what you think about this touched-up version. Obviously I think it's much better, but how about you?

I really like this new colour scheme, it's really punchy and had a masculine feel to it. I still adore this image as it has some many elements in to look at - the wonderful coasters, the beer, the bugs, all down to the nails. Some day you, I'll have to do another commission with you as I haven't seen the original for years (messy separation after five years).

Ah, that sucks! If/when I make prints of this new version, email me your address and I'll send you one gratis.

Very glad you approve of the changes.

Awww thank you kind Sir. The situation sucks but it also doesn't. He got a younger lady and I got a life. How have you been by the way?

I've been back at uni! Keeps me very busy, but it's nice to know what I'm doing for the next couple of years.

Back at uni for work? Extending your education or are you doing something different?

There is definitely more focus this way; the trees in the background stay there.

Also, I have to admit that I didn't realize it was night in the first version. I suppose it did that too.

And finally, damn! Those blacks are black.

As you can probably tell I like it.
