this is really nice Mark. I noticed we did a one-two punch over at illustration mundo. We couldn’t have planned that better. Cheers!

Beautiful job.
Mind if I ask what technique you use with the acrylics to get that almost colored pencil look?

Tom- My intention isn’t really to make it look like colored pencil. But the effect comes from doing the final details with smaller brushes with varying layers of dry brushing and glazes. Hope that helps.
