Back in the day artworks -Portrait 3 -1998

Another one of my portraits during my melancholic "dark ages" when this digital "painting" was new to me. My 3rd attempt at marrying my Anime roots with my traditional oil painting style. This technique attempted was to render everything with flat shapes, planes, and solid colors only. No gradients or shading allowed. Tools were a "hockey puck" mouse and "Lasso" tool in photoshop 3.0. 
People tend to think I'm some photoshop guru when all I use are 3 or 4 tools and paintbrushes. 95% of the program is never used and the newer versions are becoming bloat ware. 

I have been tinkering with Pixelmator lately. Like painting with Photoshop but with less fat.
