Heavily influenced by Garney and Milla on the current Daredevil run. I thought about going static image (a la the Were-pom that never came to pass), but I really thought we needed to see the goop crawling away.
At some point I'd like to shift my character coloring from an interior comic styling, to a more painterly, comic cover look, to match how I enjoy digitally coloring certain other items. This image highlights the difference, when you compare the sky, to the building to the character. Hopefully, the shift was not too jarring. I tried to bridge the gap, or ease the transition, via the way one might look at the image.
This Inktober prompt is "Tree". I took a shot at imitating sumi-e with various shades of grey marker. The result was serviceable, but you lose the ability to effectively mesh practiced stroke and end result. For example, the you lose the ability to plan and use the natural drying of the ink on the brush to create lighter areas. With marker, you have to jury-rig a similar look. That said, not bad for a first attempt.
