From my Coraline project for school, here are the first 5 'tries' the teacher had us make (now we gotta do 25 more!); these may not look like finished pieces, but they are. That's the style I'm going for. It just took me very little time to produce these, that's all.
They're pretty much a cross between Dave McKean, Tim Burton, and well, me, of course (though only those who've really known my art for a while now will notice that...or maybe not and I'm overestimating myself)
I tried a colour one just for kicks and so the teacher wouldn't tell me I didn't try different stuff (she still told me that -__-
it's a take on McKean's band of mice. I've done like three shots of the mice band so far, even though they're nowhere on the piece of text I chose to work with, but oh well. I'll find a way to put them somewhere...
