First of a set of three monochrome sketch comissions for the awesome
, of her adorable 'sona showing off her newest outfit.
Xeshaire's a super-fun commissioner to work with, really great at giving you just enough description and refs to make sure she ends up with the image she wants and that you get her character(s) right, while at the same time leaving plenty of room for creativity. (Probably helps that she's an artist herself- check out her gallery, really great stuff!)
Working on this pic and its soon-to-be-finished friends has reminded me that I absolutely love doing these monochrome pics, they go super fast and always look so good in the end. (Probably should use the method more in my personal work, but I'm such a color-addict these days...
