Here is a collaboration piece. My good friend ~ReverendKage
is a great artist and he tends to do a lot of line work but usually doesn't color things in.
Here is his picture "snuggles"
. The roughness and grittiness of the lines was intentional. KJ wanted the dark and subdued color scheme, so that's what I went with.
done in inkscape (abusing the blur and blend mode filters, meaning this is 100% vector AND scalable)
