Having discarded the Musketeer, I just went with what felt right, which is this grim little bugger right here. All I know is that he is ahead of those four miseries behind him and he’s looking ahead at something, however unpleasant it might be.
The sketch again was done in Scribbles (@atebits! let me pay you!) and screenshotted into Photoshop, painted there. As usual, click for (much!) larger.
This kind of seemed to be going well – I liked the “A,” he was kind of a musketeer…but I just couldn’t get behind it in the end. This is all digital, using Scribbles, for which I have a demo and which I have been trying desperately to buy (it’s only $20!) but I am being thoroughly, 100% thwarted in every way.
I am a big dummy and accidentally linked this entry for my Ripple IF submission. Sorry all! Go here instead for my shrimp!
Well, I’d wanted to do more with this, but work is verra verra busy right now, so here is Detective Hound. Here’s to next week. I was actually fairly happy with the digital paint work on this one for once…it’s not perfect but it’s also not that weird shiny plastic “I Am Photoshop” look.
As usual, click for larger.
