My approach: sketch and then paint using one single layer. Not by choice as I wanted to block using a layer underneath the sketch but, for some reason, I didn't sketch on a transparent layer. Oops!
More renditions of Megadodo (not by me): Very recently started drawing in this subreddit, would love one of me :)

Not to gloat or anything but unlike many digital artists, I just use one layer in Gimp (just kidding as I usually like to at least block on a different layer). Did a quickie sketch and then went to town with a hard brush. I did switch to grayscale because it's just easier. The piece has that very unfinished and amateurish look that I kinda like.
For more drawings and paintings from the above reference photo (not mine): I'm turning 35 this week, so I took some pictures for posterity. Here's one - this is me.
Well, happy birthday then!
I simply used a hard brush in Gimp without even trying to blend anything. Yeah, I switched to grayscale because, well, it's just plain easier.
Other paintings/drawings (not by me): Would reddit care to draw me with newly purple hair?
Hmmm, I completely ignored the purple hair business. Sorry!
