Def Stalker portrait for fine art print series

Toby took a hastily drawn concept sketch and with a few pertinent questions he was able to tease out all the detail he needed to complete Gerald the bear. After deciding on a palette I left him to his own devices and the result was an artful rendition of the concept replete with Toby's signature flair.
