Tall Tales from Gothenburg.

While sketching in Gothenburg, I couldn't help wondering how tall the Swedes were! So I tried to caricature a typical cosmopolitan guy there...exaggerating his height a leeetle bit tho.... Then painted on with the stylus.



At some point though I had switched off the line drawing layer... and this is what I saw!!
I quite liked it :)


The Original Sketch...is this better than the coloured version??!

I have seen guys trying hard to get up from bed and post artworks in their blogs...... you had to go all the way to Sweden!! Fantastic results though!

The line drawing is cool..... is as wild as was possible... tame compared to the rest otherwise! The first coloured one is way cooler.... the reference helped in the whimsical colouring. The second one without the outlines is nice..... in a different way.

The first coloured one ROCKS!

kundu> your feedback helped! ...i was beginning to feel that all the effort at colouring was a waste after looking at the original line art!
