I'm live streaming the final touches to my Sexy Mario illustration. http://youtu.be/ugMxw6ZGyPA Hopefully I can finish it in the next few hours.
Hey! I'm the friend. I haven't finished it, but here is what I have done, so far: I've been completely swamped with work these past few weeks and this is all I've been able to do. I plan on working on it bit-by-bit until it is done. With luck, I should have it finished this weekend, or Monday afternoon. All that is left for me to do is add in the paintings, put a fire in the fireplace, lighting/shading, and texture work.
