Lately I've been working on giving my designs a more stylized look, which seems to be doing my art alot of good. After some experimentation how to give my art the desired look, I came up with the environment below.
I did this in Painter X, working from background to foreground, using the selection and chalk tool (for the grain) alot. It's almost like doing paper cutouts and then pasting it all together :)
Thanx to the guys at stripmakers.com for giving me alot of useful feedback!
