This is my first digital painting that I made October of 2007. After attending Siggraph, really started to work on drawing and painting. I was inspired by the incredible atmosphere of one of my favorite games, STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl. I started the basic sketch of this in a fun program called Sketchpad pro with my trusty logitech mouse. I enjoyed the process so much that I bought a little wacom graphire 4, and graduated to photoshop. For a first piece, I'm pretty happy with it, though in hindsite I can see many flaws. I'll fix it I think.
