Also, Happy Birthday to my character, Valentine! Every year for 10 years, I have draw a Valentine's/Birthday picture for Val. It was the day I created him so I decided it needed to be his birthday as well. (and his name should be a dead giveaway)
This year wasn't as elaborate as last years (with the comic and all) but it was a step forward in an unfamiliar territory. I ACTUALLY stuck with a color palette! Pink seemed appropriate for the day but it is also Val's favorite color.
I normally draw Valentine in his early 30's but I decided to age him a bit and make him around his early 40's. The scruffy beard, his hair turning white etc.
Happy Valentine's Day!
