Had a lot of fun doing these colour study's on the massive cintiq's at school. As much as i liked the top colour study I ended up sticking with my initial idea of a graphic style.
Painted with all the technical skill I could muster, still fell short of my projected expectation from the previous study's. Gouache with ink line art on top.
