Realistic drawings

Well, that's not quite the term for them...
These illustrations are a cross combination of hand and digital drawing, where the framework is drawn by hand, and shades are edited using a drawing board and photoshop. 

Here, my intention is to maintain as much of the vitality of the hand drawn illustrations as possible, and use the digital approach as an enhancement of shading, and for putting the illustrations in a system. I'm fascinated by the way cold tones and space are associated with something soulless, and my favorite drawings often appear in a crossfire between the personal and the sterile. In a way, cold tones gives me motivation to create melodrama.
