Images from a graphic novel I'm working on called "This Mortal Coil." If you like the work here please check out my deviantArt site at albinogrimby.deviantart.com.
A high contrast piece I did over the summer using vectors instead. This was a test using Inkscape .43 and took about a week, maybe two weeks. Inkscape's a bit slow but it gets the job done. I think the lesson learned there was that it's still faster rasterizing than vectoring, especially with all the little details.
