Just make yourself a nice custom brush, crank. Something dotty and leafy, with some random rotation and scatter. Work from dark to light, building up from the underlying shadow. And make sure to break up any straight edges, unless you want to go for the "topiary" look (which could work just fine in this setting.)
That rally truck looks amazing.
It has the style of an ink drawing but with the precision of a 3d model and that combination works very well indeed.
I can't decide if I prefer it with the shading or not.
I guess that means they're both too good!
Hey Crank, you really went to the next level with your art from the last time I saw it. Really like the vehicles, definitely should choose that as your major, the mentorship one is really well done, im impresssed. =)
