More sketches
These all ended up being more complex than originally intended. That's why it's an experiment! Thank you early adopters :3

Awesome atmospheric perspective in that last one! He's really looking 3D! Have you thought about using this technique as a base before you color? Basically just bringing it into Photoshop, throwing a multiply on the layer, then doing flat colors under the greys, letting the greys handle all the shading for you. I'd be interested to see how they turn out!

I tried it once before and it looked really shitty, but I've learned a bit more about layer options since then and I'm currently working on a commission in which I'm doing exactly that. I'm still on the b/w stage right now. If it doesn't work out I know how I can fix it, so, at least something. It's called grisaille I think?

I have no idea! :) LOL! In my game design class our prof showed us some concept art that was done that way, though the greys were seriously tight pencils instead of digital, and it had a really nice feel to it. It's something I've been wanting to try, but I have a very heavy hand when it comes to pencils and I don't get the subtle shades you need.

I'm really interested to see what you come up with! I really love what you do with painter. I cannot wait to get my laptop this summer and finally have a computer that'll run the program. :)

It's offical, I really must draw Chedder more. she's looking particularly lovely there! :) Love how dynamic the second looks too, who says you can't with glasses?

The style of these are fantastic!

I adore the whiskers. Yus Chedz is looking loofly. And the second really does move!

Wow these look seriously nice! I'd be happy to snap a couple up if you offer them again in future!

I'll likely offer them up again after califur :) They'll also most likely be for a slightly different price though, as these were much more complex than my usual $10 "sketches" and I tend to offer deals on things I've never attempted before, but nothing more than $15-20.

Yeah I was gonna suggest you ask a higher price for 'em, they're worth it :)

Glad you're okay with that XD Thank you for the compliment/suggestion!
