This is a second version of something I did for Goodman Games a little while ago — in this version, I darkened the shadows and tried to make it look more ‘noir’ or chiaroscuro. You can see the previous version here: Roger the Hobbit.
One of the advantages of the digital workflow is I can rework old drawings without ruining the original. One of the disadvantages is that there is no original tucked away in a drawer somewhere — at heart I suspect I will always be a pen and ink on paper guy.
This was a sketch that was not approved by the client (they preferred another version) but I liked it so I finished it anyway.
