The Art of TKK: O'mas and Zonda

As with the earlier entries in the series, I worked up a series of character sketches on prominent characters in The Killing Kind. Much like A Prison of Flesh, this series is a set of four, with a limited color palette. Just like the blue used for APOF, this set features green as a major identifying color. Below are the first two in the series.

"Standing beneath a red-and-green wooden sign over the building’s entrance was a lone man. Dressed in a khaki longcoat, he had sunken features and weathered, ruddy skin that had seen a few too many years under the sun. Beneath a wide-brimmed leather hat was a mop of thin black hair which hung just above his shoulders."
