      I love the texture you're getting. Is that part all done in Photoshop? Let me ask this way: what exactly is done in Photoshop and what's done with gouache and ink?



      I guess my only critique is that the white um... stain, I guess, over Mickey's mouth disrupts the shape of his snout enough to make it a little difficult to read quickly. The first time I looked at it I saw/recognized his eyes instantly, but I had to search for the rest of his face. Maybe it's because the lines around the stain are sharper and darker than the faded Mickey tones. The stain leapt out more than Mickey's expression. I guess if you're using an iconic character instant recognition is all-important. Or maybe not.

      Anyway, I continue digging your work!

        Thanks.

        To answer your question, the original piece I did in gouache and ink about fifteen years ago, and was called ICONS IN HELL #1.



        All the rest is Photoshop effect tweaking color and applying the "grunge" texture, which is something I downloaded from another artist on Deviantart, who does a bunch of these textures for free use.
