Phillydank by FabianMonk Phillydank by FabianMonk
Here's something I did late one night inbetween projects. Meat linked this man's art over at the SS boards a couple days back (talk about linkage...), and I just couldn't get over how freaking amazing his art was. So I sat down and tried to apply some of his colors to my own style. It's a quicky, hence the roughness level, but I totally intend to color an image full blown like this at one point.

Pencils: Christopher Copeland!
Colors: Me (Monk)

Software: Photoshop CS
The character is Philly the Kid in case you're wondering, courtesy of LeSean Thomas's upcoming OGN CannonBusters.

So skillful!

I've faved this as I am really taken by the technique. Can you explain how you achieved the cross hatching, did you use a tablet?

Rembrand's cool, but I don't really look at his work often. This was more inspired by [link] than Rembrand.

May I ask what brush setting did you using for coloring this one? My guess is just the hard round brush with ~50% opacity and full flow, but I am not sure... (Sorry for the dumb question, I am actually learning from your coloring........:-P)

FabianMonk Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2006  Student Digital Artist
Opacity 100%, both opacity and flow set to pen pressure.
Also, I used this brush : [link]

I think I made Phillster entirely too evil in this one. But yeah, the red nose is a stylistic choice - the homeboy who's art I was checking out when I got inspired to do this makes most of his noses red. I actually really love that touch, and I think I'll be applying it everywhere from now.

Everywhere.

The colours are simply mind blowing. The emotion that has been captured is incredible. The tone of the piece simply feels right.

You've created a most badass character, even though I think I caught him totally out of his element.

the soft dusty brown tones are a wonderfully refreshing change from the brash stark colours that digital art seems to lend itself too, and hence this is a very surprising image. You capture an unnervinge sense of character, concealed behind a pale dust, faded but with the face just glinting through slightly. Fresh and exciting work! Wonderful!
