Anyway. Hoping to get the art going again, so I picked a few sketches from the dusty ol' pad, and decided to play around with a few [2D] rendering techniques- Layering texture overlays in with masks & different blending layers to add a bit more depth to the sketches, while trying to retain the spontaneity-> as always.
Notes: They are starting to get a bit busy/ noisier than I'd like, but part of the fun will be trying to find the balance. + Yes, some of the palettes are quite foul, but that's the price you pay sometimes for pushing for the 'NEW'!
*MIGHT* do a few more passes on them, although probably more likely to move onto new pieces!
Oh! + BIG thanks to JunkYard Sam for some of the nice textures [made by staining paper w/ coffee I believe] which I doctored up a bit. Plenty of places to get stuff like that, but kinda turns it into> a collaboration with a good buddy this way:)
Without further ado- Here ya go [most of the original sketches being from 2013]...
