OKAY THIS GUY GETS WAY TOO MUCH SPOTLIGHT FOR HIS OWN GOOD.
Originally this was to some how complied all I learned during foundation year into a stylistic realistic rendering of my character with zero color editing and absolutely no references other than the character concepts I've made of him. He'll probably be the first character I will try to render in 3D as well as make figure of since there are 3D printers at Pratt. I just decided to hurry up and finish coz I was getting to addicted to continuously working on it and I don't have school today so...!!! And I need to do my homework and this just distracts me.
I do have certain attachment to Cielo not only in being the most developed character in my stock of god knows how many characters. More like the main guinea pig for my works rather than my beloved child character, but yeah I loves him.
