@Jake-Parker Thanks for the comments — I can't tell you how pivotal SVS and especially your Youtube posts have been. So much of the fight artistically is psychological. I'm definitely going to be doing more of these, I want to experiment with more techniques and rendering styles; all quick and dirty brush, tight penwork, and mixing up some of the Robert Valley technique with zip-a-tone using the new Kyle Webster Halftone brushes.
I'm still amazed how far tools have come, in another life and a decade + ago I used to draw ashcan comics. Buying those zip-a-tone stickers were expensive!
