Ok I am very sorry to disappoint anyone who favved this pic but thanks to my perfectionist tendencies this will be scrapped. :<
Reason? botch anatomy and the cat (sabre) is too damn short in torso)
I will go ahead and rework a newer or different version. This was more or less playing around with coloring though as I'm unsatisfied with my default methods.
Still a WIP but I just redid the coloring using a reverse shading technique I've seen many conceptual artists use. Basically you shade the entire character first then you erase the shade and use your own highlights over it. It's very tricky when you're used to feeling the shadows like me, but I think the results are much sharper.
Still a few hours to go on this puppy.
