Last week I did a marathon of painting people from RedditGetsDrawn. The majority of the time the photos posted are only portraits, but I find fill figures to be more fun to draw. .
Line. Added in the characters first before the background. With the background I made up a scene based on my recent works, water, buildings, towers, and the sort.
Tone. All the block areas in the background is basically covered with tone. Maybe I should of focused on keep with the background shapes more in the tone version... keep it more similar to the line version. I wanted to get alot of these works finished so was rather rushed for time.
