I've always thought Penny Arcade characters would look cool painted or sculpted so I ended up doing a painted version of my favourite Penny Arcade comic - featuring God of War's main character Kratos http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2005/03/27
(<-link to the original comic)
I made some small adjustments to the characters so they read better in shaded form but nothing drastic, it's about 80-90% match of the original when it comes to proportions and facial features. I started doing it as 3 panel piece but it lost some of the "painting" appeal so in the end I did just one panel.
It was very fun to paint and I'll definitely do another if I have any spare time this christmas..
Crits & comments are welcome! (don't mention the font though, I have no idea what it's called and upscaling messed that up and it's too hard to fix
