This is my first post for July isn't it?
I've had a few people enquire into the making of the Banjo-Kazooie pic I put up on my DeviantArt.
It's just a sketch that was scanned in. I'm lazy when it comes to linework so I never really bother with the inking stage anymore. I use to actually be pretty good with inking but after years of not bothering- it ends up being a waste of time for me.
My line control has become alot tighter though so I'm usually able to maintain a relatively clean line for my tidier linework(Note that in order to get it this clean I usually redo my original sketch).
I colored using the Multiply method in Photoshop and added shadows to help give it a 3D lift.
Simple as that really.
I are thirsty.
