WARNING: OLD ART!! The art and comments in this Deviation may no longer represent the artist's current views or interests.

Discovered some funky fun brushes and took it out on the cast and crew of Honour Amongst Thieves. Still struggling and maybe one day I'll understand tonal value.

It's okay. His eyes are so beady and small it's usually difficult to see, but I color them orange. Most of the time they look either brown or red as a result.

The lighting and skin of Santiago are my favorite. I don't know why, I just think the colors play nicely. Also the lips on Louis. :D I love these I hope you keep delving into more digital art!

Well now, this looks amazing. James looks as British as he could get, Santiago seems as if he would be throwing a fit for some of his Spanish brethren and Louis? Well he just looks fabulouuuuuuuuuus~!

Why is Louis' heart up side down?

:iconquarter-virus:
Quarter-Virus Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2013  Professional Filmographer
It's always been upside-down, a small hint towards his willingness to put on a brave face and be happy for others, when in fact a part of him always feels remorseful that he will never be fully accepted in society for what he is. So it's a heart mimicking the shape of a tear.

for some reason i imagine the guy to the left with a voice like clopin from the hunchback of notredame, the one to the right would sound like fenris from dragon age and the one on the center would most for sure sound like cortez from road to el dorado...

nah, i'm sure this would not turn into a cartoon/movie anytime soon, that would be a lot of money, oh well, i can still enjoy their adventures on deviantart.

It's in progress. Between a full-time job, an illustration collaboration for a children's book, and animating HAT when I have the time, it's slow going.

If you need any tips or guidelines I'd strongly recommend checking out Concept Cookie, cgcookie.com/concept if you haven't already.
They have weekly painting exercises, contests, a lot of tutorials (most are free) and come with a buttload of brushes too! 

Hope this helps! And have fun painting!

These have a very different visual presence! They're still quite obviously the characters, but the different technique makes them feel a lot more settled and rich. The line-driven cartoons have a vibrant, larger-than-life quality and motion to them, while these feel softer and more subtle but no less interesting. I'm trying to come up with a metaphor for the difference in mood and drawing a blank, but for example I think I could see this approach as cover art for your graphic novel, while the inside I would still see more as the line art.

That's a very interesting analogy, perhaps I'll consider that if and when I finally get around to working on the graphic novel. In all of my briefs with people who work in the games and movie industry, I consistently receive the same feedback that while I am good at cartooning and draw quickly, I have a very set style, and need to diversify more. So between work, commissions, and finishing my animation, I am now also trying to practice digital painting when I can.
