    I think you're starting to get too good at this. Those alt shots have completely fooled my eyes even though I know it's 3D. If I saw them out of context I'd think they really were 2D.

    I've always thought your stuff looked nice but this one brings it to a new level. This is really amazing. Way to hone your style!

    Have you posted a tutorial on your cel-shading technique? If not, would you be interested? I'd love to have some of my Classics looking like this.

    Thank you all guys for your kind words! Really, really glad you like my work :) 

    Those are matt enamels with a dullcoat lacquer on top, for both protection and make it look even more flat and cartoony ;) 

    Thanks!
    Wait and see ;) ;) 

    Oh man.. I really suck at painting :( 

    I might post one soon, I'll take a couple of pics the next time I work on a project like this and I'll post it ;)

    I like how you took the animation colors or whatever its called and put it on Smokescreen giving that he looks cartoony, but with a little bit of a 3D affect on him. Great work, froggy.
