Here's one of the more comic style pieces that I've done using the template files I discussed earlier to help with color picking and quick renders. It's really proving to be quite useful, especially with quick concepting and colors. What would have taken me much longer originally can now be completed within half that time, with a nice sense of consistency between pieces. It's also proving to be very useful in painting quick good-looking skin-tones, which is one of my favorite things to paint.
Playing around with a few template files today that has all of my common layering techniques and time-savers all on one layered document. I'm testing it out with a few different styles that I use, and so far it's been pretty versatile. This one was created to test how well it handles grey-scale to color conversion. Normally when using color layers on grey-scales, the colors are muted and desaturated, but I'm pretty happy with the colors on this one.
