You're a Real Card, Grey

Sexy Brutale Casino Husbands - Redd, Greyson, and Greyson's epic jelly roll beard. Is the 2 of Hearts a romantic gesture or a shameless deuce joke? Depends on which one you ask.

Inspired by and partly referenced from a random photo in my stock collection, plus some high res game assets for the masks. About 3 weeks of work all told, including some long weekend days, and a new record for the amount of fuss and detail done in that time frame although I spent a while experimenting with the fabric. I tried to emulate some techniques from the pro illustrators I follow and had a bit of success in the form of Redd's sweater shading, which felt surprisingly fast and natural once I got my pencil rhythm going. The masks were fun and didn't take too long - maybe 2 days' work apiece for the pencils, including an initial structural draft.

Thanks so much! I'm very interested to hear what you think when you do play it. Especially about these two - my latest fictional crushes :P

haha I tried to play it last year (I got it just after Xmas) but I was too brain dead from food and drink to really follow. I think you need to be smarter than I am to play properly xD
