This was quite an endeavor for me, and I learned quite a bit. For the trade, Deven gave me a photo he shot himself to digitally paint. In exchange, he’s doing a 3D modeling of the real life me. So, we’re both doing things that are a little weird or out of our comfort zone.
Over all, I am REALLY happy with the way this turned out. It could have been SO much worse.
