Man. 1and1.com had a major server failure last friday. They finally decided 3 days later that they couldn’t fix it and had to move my account over to a new server. So all of my sites have been down or functioning badly since then. Hopefully we’re back up for good now.

Hey! You’re back!!! Yay!
Now is my turn on the tutorial stuff! Hahaha!
Well, it’s easy: I took a photo for reference, draw Hiro, and clean up all interferences, like trafic, people around him, signs,etc; and paste/flatten the colors of the buildings as much as possible, to give this blocky look. Then, the good photoshop with grain and texture filters, and added a little green to the whole scene to unity.
And that’s it! Hiro Nakamura all good and done! Easy, huh?! 😉

Hey Bruna, Cool! That is a really cool technique, it looks almost like watercolor and friskit. If anyone’s curious, here’s the illustration: http://bp0.blogger.com/_OahkrUg4LfY/RpUBvqQLR8I/AAAAAAAAAYw/2B7XYN2yY9Q/s1600-h/hironakamura_bbrito.jpg
