My character and portrait artwork as FOSS Mypaint user

Before I begin this topic, I want to apologize for my bad English :sweat_smile:

Start from January 2016, I permanently switch all my digital illustration tools to FOSS (Free Open Source Software) including the OS with Xubuntu and some of digital painting software especially Mypaint! The main point that I want to scream out loud is, with a little bit adjustment, using FOSS software doesn’t hurt me whether working as a freelancer or doing my personal artwork scratch draw. It means that I still can provide what my clients ask, the quality and the file format.

Here I want to share some of my artwork so far with Mypaint (I will frequently update it as far as I can since a new user only can use one image per post). Hope you enjoy it!
