Browns by NastyLady Browns by NastyLady
Some time ago I ended up with a few TF2 portrait sketches after one particularly sleepless night-
(You can check them out here, if you're interested)
-and I haven't practiced painting in forever, so I asked my followers which one would they like me to colour. Veeeeery surprisingly the Sniper with a cig (smoking is evil but also hella sexy) won, so there he is.

And yes, it was based on a photo. A few photos, actually, most important of course being this one.
(Fun fact, two others were pictures of ladies.)

Sniper and browns just work so well together. This palette makes you feel all the heat, stuffy air and dirt, smell the smoke and sweat, but also gives the picture a calm and relaxed atmosphere at the same time. Very Sniper-ish, if you ask me.

Also holy puck, since when can I paint. I can remember sucking really, really bad and then it was suddenly "oh, I guess I'm kind of okay at that". When did the transition occur?

Wow this is amazing. This might actually be the one portrait of Sniper that has the most 'human' feel to it, it really shows his character, I can't really explain it, but this painting has that vibe that he seems way older than he is because of the heavy job he does everyday.
Awesome drawing!! :D

I am not entirely sure, but I think Nasty may like the Sniper. 

Like, really like him.

Hey, I have sketched other characters as well! It was the tumblr people who chose this one to finish. Not my fault.
But yeeeeahh, Sniper is... nice to draw. I guess. Haha.

Okay, I stop.

Anyways, the picture is great. Very paint-like. I am sure there is a better term for that, but I am simply not aware of it.
