3 hour speedpainting of Captain John "Soap" MacTavish from the game of the year, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
12 layers, Photoshop CS3.
The gun was probably the hardest part in this pic *sigh*
11:24 AM - 12:46 PM (1h 22 min) preliminary stages, minor detailing
12:46 PM - 1:11 PM (25 min) lunch break
1:11 PM - 2:38 PM (1h 27 min) major detailing, filtering, effects
Total time: 2h 49 min + 10 min. touch-up (later) = 2h 59 min (excluding breaks)
EDIT: Film grain filtered, sharpened, so it doesn't look too blurry. Added some dirt/dust effects, and a bit more patterning and stuff.
