The image thing will, obviously, be fully painted out by the time I’m done with that piece, it’s used as a baseline to lighten my work load and give me a set of starting colors to work from. Commonly used technique, especially in the concept art industry, to save time.
My primary art space is currently on FurAffinity.net.
You can also find most of my more elaborate work on e621.net, and my sketches can be found over on my Tumblr page! (we’ll probably find something better than Tumblr soon..)
