My entry for the "Coloring Book Challenge" contest over at More info here.
Now this is different, isn't it?
I didn't set out with something like this in mind at all. I was redoing the entire lineart with the pen tool (I just couldn't have worked with that ugly low res one, no) and I tried a different setting for the brush that gave me something that looked kind of sumi-e-esque to me. Kind of, you know, compared to what I usually do. I liked it too much to start over so I ended up taking inspiration from the sumi-e-inspired style used for the Okami video game.
I know I probably focused too much on the lineart (but that's the best part!!) while the colouring itself isn't that elaborate, but I hope I'll get points for originality and effort... Trust me, the colouring had me right out of my comfort zone; I don't do things like that! I'm usually all about perfect shapes and curves made with the pen tool, but this time I only used a brush. And it was awesome.

Have I been featured somewhere…? I got quite a lot of favs on this piece for the past 2 days and I'm wondering where they're coming from
