Hey. Iv been designing for my HL2 MOD team and I thought I should design a character. I made it in photoshop and it took me about 40 mins.
Btw, its my first painting in photoshop from scratch!

Great start! Now take your time and detail the character, making it a bit less dark would be better imo.

Heh thanks. Yea I was working zoomed in and I forgot about the zoom so everything looked fine in zoom view but unzoomed it turned out unexpectedly dark..

Maybe just throw up the brightness a bit and go on from there? I'm a noob so your not obligated to listen to me though :D.
For some ideas:
1. I'd fancy a belt around the waste with a gun or knife in it.
2. Some sort of bag bind around 1 of the legs would look cool.
3. And fix the "gun?" up, as i realy can't tell what that thing is. Maybe paint it first then roatate it a bit and fit it into the hands. Seen this technique and it works very good.
