NICK! Is the first image traditional or digital? I can't tell? It has the deftness of hand drawn lines though, I'm very impressed!
Its 100% Photoshop. Mainly just basic round but with some custom brushes for effect. I stared at a lot of ink drawings trying to simulate the effect, glad to hear it worked!
Now I'm really impressed! I'm always attracted to really well done "pen and ink" drawings. Amazing!
