Heh-heh, as always, the sheer fact that that you are able to create and bring such wondrous artistic magic like this to life in a mere HALF a day's time never fails to absolutely impress and AMAZE me to no end, buddy! But of course, that is most certainly just another prime example of why you are the absolute BEST at what you do, right?
One thing that has happened to catch my eye in some of your initial sketch works as of late, though, and this most recent example included, are some of the lines of red present within and interwoven between the other grayscale-hued lines of the initial, uncleaned sketches.
I know that virtually all of the artistic masterpieces brought to life by you today is done 100% digitally in Photoshop. But sometimes, when those other red lines catch my eye in your sketching work as well, it causes me to wonder a bit: do you still currently use any traditional, non-digital methods in bringing your beautiful canvases to life as you used to in the past? I'm only asking out of sheer curiosity, my friend.
There's definitely more to it than I thought. I hope I can learn a bit from this. Honestly I'm completely inexperienced with it, but this sort of illustration makes wandering around in the dark a bit easier for me.
