Thanks. I use a brush with a wacom. I find the pen tool makes very mechanical lines. The brush tools a bit more organic for me. Depends though, I've seen some people do amazing things with the pen tool.
Will you just look at how much character you can put into these guys?! They... gah. I really wish I could say something else, 'cause these are deserving of an uber long, loving comment. But it's just left me speechless. I think you use proportions to your advatage here.
Oh geez, the ape-in-command with all his medals they pour onto the floor. That is the definition of character.
Cool and funny at the same time. I like the first guy the best, especially his bazooka and goggles, he looks like he could be the main hero in some video game. Military monkeys. How I love bizzare ideas
