After watching Matt Humphreys carefully construct his drawings on his livestream, and also getting a tutorial on opacity vs flow by Mike Henry on *his* livestream, I changed up my approach to sketches. I applied this to pieces for two winners of contests I ran at Deviant Art: one for getting the 50,000th page view, and one for a picture of my first comic book cover for Zombie Vs Cheerleaders #2 in the comic book store.
Here they are.
