I tried my hand at acrylics with this guy. I've always been frustrated with them in the past but someone recently gave me the bright idea to water them down, making them way easier to work with. I may have to make a sticker or something out of him.

Acrylics in full force aren't my bag either, I always water down toward a more gouache-like consistency. Looks like this worked out for you quite well! Nice work.
DO IT. stickers are the best and not enough cool people make them. (they'd be really neat sevenly items...)
Nathan, how many of your illustrations are based off a reference image? This thing is amazing.
@Anthony Lane Thanks man! For the most part, everything I illustrate is a combination of several different images to create the look that I want. Kinda piecing together my translation of various pieces from each image.
Love. It. Personally, I've never been a fan of strokes so that element doesn't strike my match but the artwork is.. well, damn good. Cheers!
This looks great man, how large were you working with?
Yep, water is your friend. Great work, man.
@Joe Horacek Thanks man!
@Adam Gonzalez Thanks! The original is around 3"x4".
Beauty, that's pretty rad the original size is only 3"x4" @Nathan Yoder
This is dope!

Mmmm..... that texture.
@Rich Scott Thanks, man!
