Working off of some of the sketches lately, I decided to try my hand at more of “finished” illustration, but still trying to keep some grit of pencils in it. I found a Neutral toned paper I’m really happy with Kona Classic Premium Toned Artist Paper. Made form repurposed coffee bean bags. It has a lot less fibers, oddly enough, from some other neutral ground books I’ve found.
I was also inspired by a project that I’m doing some art work for, although this was not commissioned by the client, I was just messing around in that vein/genre/vibe. I call this “Downed Pilot” and is decidedly space operatic, but I think with an old school feel.
Hope y’all like!
