Bounty Hunter by Cribs Bounty Hunter by Cribs
Crafty, versatile and straight up heartless - the Bounty hunter grapples back row enemies, yanking them forward and exposing them to your front line's brutal attacks.  Crowd control, roots, stuns, and snares are his specialty, not to mention his deadly Widowmaker axe.

The monsters should roll insanity tests when encountering the Bounty Hunter!

This game has a GREAT art style. Wow.

The Kickstarter probably keeps you busy at the moment. If you have a free moment sometime, could you please tell us a bit how you use your tools and the workflow to create this art? Whether you use pencils and paper, how you make those textures, and especially how you do the "inking"...

I'm still a beginner and don't know how to control the brushstrokes in Photoshop like this. With real brushes or quills on paper, it's more conceivable to me.

It's not a standard round brush in Photoshop, is it? And though I use a Wacom pen, I don't know how to do broad brushstrokes and strokes like these tapered spikes (like on the left hand's middle finger) in the same workflow - I'd have to switch brushes and zoom in a lot to do the spikes, which is tedious. Maybe I'm missing something basic and there's a tutorial for something like this somewhere?

Thanks for the comment - I'm actually going to be doing a twitch this week where I work on a wallpaper like this.  I'll post the info as soon as I can!

In the meantime, here's a quick rundown:  I made a triangular brush in PS, set pressure to size only.  I wanted to simulate a crowquil nib, basically.  It's the only brush I use for the inkwork - switching from black to white and just carving away until it looks allright.  For coloring, I use bigger, blotchier chalk brushes, on a layer set to multiply.

That was very nice. Here's the permalink to the Twitch video for anyone who's interested:

Your workflow is more straightforward than I thought, I just imagined too much - like that the linework needs a Wacom pen with rotation recognition or something, but that's not the case. Funny that you used the Cutout filter once. Seeing the process makes it clear that this is achievable, which is definitely more inspiring than when it's a perfect finished artwork. Thanks for that!

Happy to help provide a bit of insight.  The workflow is pretty straight forward, I wanted something simply without alot of steps or fancy layers so that I could chew through content creation at a good pace.

I like how its not a traditional bounty hunter design.

I'm really trying hard to sidestep the traditional rpg paradigms - thief, fighter, cleric, wizard, etc.  I want Darkest Dungeon to have it's own identity.

I have an Idea about a zealot-type warior class that uses self-inficted pain, flails and daggers to dish out holy fire

I love the art for this game, and that is pretty much the universal opinion i see on any gaming blog

Appreciate the words, and glad you like the art!  It seems to be resonating with people well, so hopefully that's a good sign as we move into Kickstarter!
