Got up this morning and finished my Gobo at Work sketch. Inked it in and used Prismacolor neutral grey markers to finish.
It took me a few minutes to work in the floor pattern. I have done stone floors in the past on Kobold Shaman and Jaguwere, but wanted to go for something a bit different for the gobo. I figured him standing on a sandy/loam floor with remnants of human bones would be a good "backdrop".
I worked on shading again, and used some of the techniques I began to hone on Resting Orc, and expanded on them with my use of grey markers.

Looking closely at the drawing you will see I went to great lengths at showing veins, grit and wrinkles without going overboard (at least in my opinion). I used my wood grain technique on the shield made from dungeon door boards, and worked on a rust technique I picked up from Mark Crilley (an illustrator who produces youtube videos on "how to draw") for both the broken sword and the warthog jawbone.
I think it is vital for any artist to continue to learn, and I am finding it easier and easier to pick up helpful hints along the way to make my art work that much better.
Thanks for looking, and comments always welcome.
