Playing Card Pin Up

I've been trying for a long time now to get used to digital painting. I much prefer having a pencil of a paintbrush in my hand and all of the unpredictability that real life brings. But some digital paintings look so good and I want a piece of it so I did this, but why does it feel a little bit like cheating?
I'm still not sure if I like the results but it's always another tool to use.

Simon Pegg Illustration (Final)

At last, the finished illustration, the book is coloured and the background finished off. Highlights are added and a little colour correction done (the background colour has been introduced to the foreground to tie them together). Last of all, the text is added, followed by several days of hating the damned thing!

I am nmow adding the background in pencil and acrylics. I'm not trying to take away the attention from the foreground whilst still giving it depth and texture. Pegg is looking a bit dark (bol**cks), but I'll sort that out later!
