Congratulations on the design! Its beautiful! What are the licenses of the work (example CC0, CC-BY, etc.) so that others can use it?

This is a piece that really shows the arbalist's frustration (Rage) with how long it take for a crossbow to cock. The background just magnifies and emphasizes that anger, especially looking at him growl.

Just the process used, not necessarily the visual style.

Well, majority of the time, I use a systematic method of coloring to get quick results. I'm talking about this one: ryanlangdraws.tumblr.com/post/… .

I wanted to try something different to break the mold. SO instead of going systematic, I blocked out all the hues and values as chunks and refined them until a recognizable form pops out.

You're very good with the costumes. What do you look at for inspiration?

Look at character designs by Akihiko Yoshida and designs from the Etrian Odyssey series of games!

No, I haven't done any work influenced by him. I've heard of him before but forgot, I'm glad I asked Jerome what his influence for costumes were, otherwise I would continue forgetting.
