Rough Piece

I just found this old rough piece.


  1. That's a wonderfully whimsical piece. I love it.

    I'm curious, since you call this a 'rough piece' ... do you do light-and-dark toning in greyscale before you would move on to adding color? Or was this a piece that was meant to be in that grey/sepia tone when you colored it?

    Thanks. Great work as always. :)

  2. This is an amazing artwork, congratulations. Your work is fantastic. I wish I could draw like you. Love so much your 'rough piece', I´m a total fan.

    If someday you have the chance to visit Montevideo, I would love to be your guide ;o)

  3. i wish my clean looked this nice.. You make it look so effortless Florian

  4. You put so much detail into a sketch like this. Amazing stuff. I love this one - it's great to see the sketch that goes with it.

  5. I would totally cough up the 50 cents for a ride on that thing. Excellent scene.

  6. Oliver, John, Pit, Mel, Shane, Michael, THANKS A BUNCH!

    John, I added the grey/sepia tone after colouring it. Cheers!

    Pit, I will take your offer! :)

  7. Nice drawing - rich yet readable

  8. This kid would be so rich! Awesome!
