We love the shy ones by tabbykat We love the shy ones by tabbykat
this is based off my boyfriend's youngest nephew.
cute kid... but i'm still glad he isn't mine.

sketched in open canvas, colored in photoshop.
tried some new cut/past, opacity, and shading techniques here.

Note: the wings are a cut and paste job from this wonderful wallpaper here: [link]

This is really cute and I like how you used the expression to show this emotion. Though one thing that I dont like about this picture is the background. The way it has been done is not the same as the boy which kinda through its off (well actually the background beyond that of the border is kinda my problem)
You seem to know how to use the opacity and shading techniques quite well and I really dont think theres anything else to say except, this is a really good picture and very cute :)

Love the texturing job on the wings. Normally, I don't like photograph backgrounds on hand drawn art (tends to look really cheap), but this one is an exception: it simply fits the picture rather nicely. The lines are nice and crisp as well.
Good Job! :w00t:
