First time I am messing with Paintbrushes in Photoshop so please don't be strict!
The character is 'Kid' from the RPG game Bastion
. If you haven't played it yet I recommend it. It also has an amazing soundtrack. It actually inspired me to experiment with new techniques, airburshing etc. Learn about the game here: [link]
Took me approximately 12 Hours with the original picture for reference.
