Coma Deer – colour experiment

I did an inked version of the deer sketch that I posted earlier. I was a little dissatisfied with the flat colouring on the earlier tests for the book, so I decided to try something new. Here I added some quick variation and texture into the colour, to add some more life to the illustration. It is important that the colouring is quick and easy to do, because I have to do a lot of these to finish up the book.

Here’s an example of the same drawing with plain colours.

This is another creature that Jamie encounters in Coma. While the other creatures have animal bodies with the head of Simone; this one has the body of Simone and the face of a goat.
