    About a week ago, I got inspired to start working on more art. It started off with a Pen of the Avatar marathon where I probably watched around 10 hours of videos. Tonight, I finally finished. It was about three sessions, but they were long ones.

    This is my rendition of Darkstarr, in what I'd call business casual. Unfortunately, I don't know a host that doesn't make the images look too dark. It's much better in person.

    To consolidate the thread a bit, I'm putting some of the final images in the original post, and dropping the WIP in spoiler tags.

    This last one, I only did the colors. The pencils were done by Jay Anacleto

    About the "darkness" hosts use to apply some filters by default. Sometimes you can desactivate that.

    Did some checking, it may be browser related. Chrome and Firefox definitely look too dark, but IE seems ok. Not sure how to fix a color management issue. The shadows are a bit deep, but when they're on the edge, the browser just dumps everything into blackness.

    I couldn't fit the corpion in the scene unfortunately.

    Would love to be able to craft painting like this in the game.

    Also related to the monitor. That is the pain of the digital colors.

    Probably take me awhile to complete this with my current schedule, so I figured I'd post a work in progress. Still a long way to go, but you get the idea.

    Decided to revisit the original image, and work on it more. There were always things I wasn't happy with (still have areas I think could use more work). Not sure when I'll get around to finishing it, but this is where it's at.
