EMPEROR B&W page 2

No, I'm not retreading old ground, I should have shown you guys this first. Unfortunately, this is like hitting someone with a jab after you've knocked them out with a big cross.

This is the black and white artwork which I have to Annette. There are two separate greyscale layers to communicate a different tonal range. There's a 50% layer and a 25% layer, and where the two overlay it's 75%. I did this because I really wanted to control my shadows. I personally love fill lights, and Annette wasn't big on them at the start. I started shading like this to show her what I meant.

Again, this is another reason why I draw on Photoshop, because it's almost impossible to do this by hand.
