Back to Gutshot Straight, this is a scene in which the main character follows into a restaurant someone who appears to be the man he recalls accidentally murdering the night before. I tried to get across a sense of unease in the figure, and disparity between him and his environment.
I also resumed my previous process, of doing a tonal watercolor and then coloring it in Photoshop. As this often produces an excessively dark image, I decided to go lighter in places and tried to also push the color saturation. It's a bit of a balancing act, succeeding in some places and not so much in others, but maybe it'll get there eventually.
Eventually, I would like to go purely digital, but I still prefer drawing these more intimate scenes traditionally.
