Fantastic stuff. To my eyes, a very original style and color palette. I'd put it right up there with Lane Smith, with a splash of Matt Mahurin.

Thank you...I keep wondering about 'my style':)!

I am a bit behind though...trying to update some brushes at same time...didn't work!

Crazy wicked! Thanks for the brushes too!

Thank you!..
I extracted 2 additional brush sets specific to #Inktober (patterns and inkers) but still playing around with the sets...and they are a bit big for resource sets...Also added links to the base shapes in resources which I seem to be using a lot recently..

@Stuart FR  Thank you so much for the glorious palette!   Until one sees it, it is an educated guess at the intricacies of your colors.   It is so very kind of you to share it.  Pity we can't all share your artistic ability too!!!😷

Pleasure!.. and thank you for the comment..


I have quite a collection of Palettes!:)....and brushes!. The Palettes just evolve as I draw but some are worth keeping!

Everyone has artistic ability.. just need to to tap into it!...oh! and draw a lot...The way I draw has changed a lot over the past 4 years..I use a lot of reference images.. #Inktober has been a great help...It would be nice to finish on time for once though...but theI think my drawings are too large and complex for that..Good prompts this year though..I am really pleased I bought these apps.. haven't really looked back! they are perfect for what I wanted to achieve..

Give it a go..

the tools are all there!

The leaves are easy to create...It's why I make base shapes for a lot my drawings (There are a lot of them in resources!)..If you are going to paint then it is a great advantage to have a base shape to start with. 
1. Just place one from the assets sheet onto page.
2. Draw around it with a sketch brush (or add line! or vector line)...sketching is better as moves away from overly clean vectors...on a separate layer. (Separate layer as may need to under-paint)
3. Duplicate the layer or object ... add the base colour to vector (greenish in this case)..Rasterise the result (now have a pixel base in the correct colour onto which you can paint)
4. Turn on protect alpha (helps.. avoids having to draw around the edge)
5. Paint over with some texture brushes...Using darker colour of base colour for shadows and lighter colours for the highlights....Use a texture or grunge brush initially to get a pattern
6 Remember to use opacity with brush.. gives greater control and it's just a tap of key (0-9)..lets you build up colour

There you go!

Brush Updates
As part of this project the vector brush library has been extended. with refined (lots of new nozzles all vector based) versions of Project Brush 16 Grunge and a new 'vector' brush equivalent. This time around I made some adjustments to the process as well where I tried to get the vector brushes reflect as closely as possible the raster versions. 
1. Using the same nozzle structure (easy now as all vectors!)
2. Balanced naming for easier reference - so vector/raster brushes have same name (well mostly!)
3. A new base Vector set 'Undergrowth', the new name for 'Poison' assets...(added this one to Poison thread as still need to refine the full sets)

When looking at your style of working I thought of a quote of Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin who one called his tyle of playing sloppy, while being an icon in the music world nevertheless. I'm sure that music lovers that read his words took it on a positive way. Continuing the analogy with the music business, Eric Claption said that there are millions of geniusses that never received the acclaim big stars like himself enjoyed. Both Page and Clapton just played the way they liked. I think that is your apporach as well and I am a fan, being one who is perhaps still stuck into realism that I find hard to let go for now.

Thank you...I appreciate your comments!
.I believe that the drawings are still evolving though....especially when I compare the ones created in 2015/2016...Initially I wanted to re-create traditional ink techniques using isographs and Bristol board digitally...but getting a bit beyond that now!...'Fallen' is very close to that!  Every-time I take up the challenge the drawing s look different...Making use of the brushes this year...
