Jak and Daxter color lesson

Something I rediscovered recently. This design was created during the Jak and Daxter development process in 2000. It was originally a line drawing. I made a photocopy and used it to give a demonstration in gray scale rendering with markers. Afterwards to underscore how effective this method is in tandem with Photoshop I added a color tint to the gray marker drawing. The method can be so effective it's hard to tell whether the color was done digitally or whether the illustration was rendered that way with a traditional medium.
