Illustrator, with a different flow to it than usual. Looping back to where I was when I was a fan of Mignola’s big solid blacks combined with constant-width lines, dropping my recent reliance on a whole lot of shading and highlighting to conceal color decisions that just don’t work from a value contrast level, leaving a few bits of rough work in the final piece, stepping back from my usual phobia of any obviously-linear elements. Kinda feels like Ronald Wimberley’s stuff more than anything else, to me.

Maybe I’ll draw the next chapter of Parallax like this instead of all that painting. I learnt a lot by doing all that painting but I miss high-contrast solid color stuff.
