It's been a while but now i'm pleased to say that I'm really enjoying my recent experiences drawing the way I always used to - on paper - no color - no tonal range. That said these are obviously scanned so I'm going to take them into photoshop and look at them with my current aesthetic. These are my take on a style inspired heavily by Kent Williams.

Good to see! I'd think some india ink and brush might be quite conducive to this thought-to-hand process.
