This was a quick experiment with a style that I've been wanting to use for some time. I was looser with the linework, which felt very natural and free. I was also going for a more stylized approach, which also felt natural to me. I also added a bit of texture to give it an old maritime feel as well.
I could go much more extreme than this if I try hard enough. It's unlikely I'll keep using this style, but tell me what you guys think.
