I have been fighting off and on for the past few months with my art. I finally decided to sit down and try some new technique ideas so I can produce decent quality art again. I whipped a lazy lineart in just a few minutes and spent hours practicing on it and I think I really like the results. I'll try the process again soon. Here are the alternate/original colors without the overlay effects. [link]
Done in Photoshop. Only about 3 hours from sketch to shading, but several poured into tinkering throughout the day. Any opinions are welcome!
