  1. ooo! howdja pull of this sepia inky thing, mattie? share this brush and media! love the keep and all the lil silo sentinels. ('specially their plumes!) this reminds me of that really awesome style in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kff5EhZVgWY...in the beginning. scratchy, expressive. perfect. you might very well be a doodler before your time. :-)

  2. Top stuff, yes, really great scratchy lines and textures. Would be great if you could share the brushes and stuff, unless you did in real life, not the computer of course :)

  3. Glad you liked my mythological messiness folks, ta muchly. Since you ask it's all 'real life' with a quick final mix in the photoshop 'matrix'. All the line work is scrawly pencil, FYI the sketches are on my blog (variously coloured up in pshop), the 'inky thing' is loose ink sketching using a bamboo kebab skewer on a greaseproof paper overlay over the pencil sketch (thrifty mans tracing paper ;-) All messy fun, and nice to get hands on sometimes rather than all being digitally based.

  5. This is excellent! Digging the textures from the scrawly pencil.
