Another from the commisioned project where I was asked to illustrate a few distinct TV characters. This time, a Sleestak:
Drawn in pencil and inked with a Tombo brush pen and Sakura microns, meticulously touched up in Photoshop to make it look like I know what I’m doing, and then colored (in Photoshop). On the one hand, the lighting on this one is too subtle and unfortunately stops just shy of “moody.” I wish I had taken it further, particularly on the face. On the other hand, I’m still pretty happy with the way I translated the Sleestak into a cartoony style, while keeping it recognizable.
