As well as working on painting technique, over the past week or so I've been trying to deconstruct and understand a couple of different methods of rendering a sketch in an anime/cell shade style. I put together a costume/character design for ZeroSpin and had a pass at one. I've leant more towards a classic comic book style of inking in this sketch (as that's a style I really enjoy as well), but I think with the next one I'll definitely look to use more of a dead line weight and really try to simplify the cuts. Still, always good to be experimenting!
