Thoughts, Words, Works

When I saw my friend Ty's drawing of "The Boog", a robot built entirely out of brass instruments (except for the red felt on his shoulders, which is made from the horn cases), I had to color it. I went with a slightly different style here, sort of a rough cel-shaded look with emphasis on reflected light. I also tweaked the original lineart to make it look a little more artificially textured rather than pencil-like. I used fewer layers than normal, mashing the shading mostly together with the fill colors. The background is a modified stock photo. Total amount of work, 6-7 hours.
