Gremlin of the Diamond Caves by TamarinFrog Gremlin of the Diamond Caves by TamarinFrog
And now! Something completely different!

I wanted to challenge myself and I decided to practice some digital painting with a more realistic look rather than cartoon.
I wanted to push myself out of my comfort zone and proof that I am not a one trick pony. I am quite happy with the outcome. :)

So, I wanted to draw my view of a "realistic" sableye. To me, he is pokemon world's gremlin, mixed with Gollum. Thus, it always amuses me when I see people drawing him with a fur. Since sableye is a creature that can grow diamonds out of his body, I'd say his skin needs to be hard, almost mineral like. This is how I prefer my sableyes. Creepy and gremlin like! :D

Hope you like it! I'd love to experiment with digital painting more. I seriously need to get faster at it. Gotta practice some speed painting. And feel free to give me any tips!

Some brushes from [link] were used for textures.
[link] was used as a pose reference and inspiration. (I told you I see sableye as Gollum XD)

This reminds me of your old style, I really miss you old style. Sure this new one is cute but I kinda miss the older sharper look of your art.

The time I used pencil linearts? Uuh... I dunno. Gave me more trouble than it was worth. Plus, even my pencil linearts have evolved into more smoother and rounder.

^^; That's the think thought I seem to be interested in rough and sketchy which was your first style that drew me into DA in the first place. I don't mean to be rude and I do like your current style as well I just kinda like older things for some reason. Though I do love how you draw Winslow in your current style. C:
