Pencil, ink, and watercolors

I think I've found what I'm going to use for a final look. Pencil base to rough in the forms, sketchy inked lines to sharpen everything up and then the watercolor I've been practicing with to bring in the lighting and color.

I'm satisfied with this result. If the environment isn't a focal point I kind of like the simple splotch of color for sky, it lets the characters keep your attention.

I'm also happy with the scratchy ink lines crisscrossing Snarz the crab. Gives him a slightly weathered look and makes it clear he's made of harder material.
