Great stuff, you always do an awesome job with a blue-green/red palette. I think it looks fine with the jacket uncolored, but there are ways to get the lines to show up even on a dark surface by playing with temperature (warm lines on a cool local hue). I can show you an easy way to separate and color the lines, or you can wait 'till Rick's production class.

Yup, exactly. It's called 'color holding.'

Oh wow, this is digital? I thought it was colored pencil. I like this new direction you're going in, it feels very fresh with a touch of indie rock band aesthetic floating around. xD I really like the lines in the jacket, and I think you captured a very contemplative and layered expression with (I'm assuming it's him) Tawd. This also looks vintage-y, like you could find a poster of this in someone's room from years ago. Nice work! ^^

:) Thank you! Yeah I did the original drawing in my sketchbook and then scanned it in. I left the texture of the paper in there to give it that traditional feel.

wow this looks really good!! :)
i like a lot how you let out some areas uncoloured, it creates a mood in the pic and directs the viewer´s focus. and the perspective is also very catchy. did you use a photo reference?

Aw thanks! yeah I used a photo reference. Sorry I should have mentioned that in the description. XD

I did all the line work and when I was coloring the jacket, everything I liked about the drawing disappeared, so I decided to leave it uncolored. Same with the background that was originally all black.
