Now, the illustration-friday

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.

    @Ramel – thanks! I’ve been working on making my palettes match up with the palettes I actually *like* – seems like such a no-brainer but it’s taken me a long time!

    Hi Katie!

    Yay, I’m your first follower, but that means I’ll be pushed out fast as others move in, but…..that’s what you want lots o’ followers! This guys is awesome! I saw him on the slideshow this morning on the clubhouse homepage, but didn’t have a chance to look longer to see who created it – glad I know now. I love the atmosphere you’ve created with the dark earth colors and his expression/body language is perfect for grim and moody. I love dark stuff, puts me in mind of Tim Burton a little, fantastic!

    Oh, you can follow me back if you want I have the widget up – see ya back at the clubhouse….Susan
