Finished and Unfinished Art By Cartoonist/Illustrator Len Peralta
Speed Painting of Maurissa Tancharoen. It’s also my first paid post on Patreon. Consider sponsoring me and becoming a patron. As little as $4 a month can keep speed drawing content flowing and take a little more stress of my overburdened life. Go here: http://www.patreon.com/len
I’m on a tear today. Here is the Inevitable Groot fan art, painted. I’ve seen a lot of fan art of (SPOILER) Baby Groot, but none that brings Groot’s special powers into the mix. Maybe there is. If there is. I apologize. Pen and ink. 8,5 x 11. Digital Paint.
I got a new pen yesterday - A Pentel Pocket brush pen. After two years of working digitally, I decided to try to go back to do some real pen and ink work. It took a little time to get used to, but I like it. Its refillable, unlike the Pitt pens I had been using for the past seven years or so. That will take some getting used to, but all in good time.
I’m on a Guardians Of The Galaxy trip this week, as is everyone else, so I decided to test out my pen with a Rocket Raccoon image. I posted the raw pen and ink on Instagram earlier today.
I scanned it in and painted digitally in Photoshop. It feels pretty cool to go back to the way I used to do things. I think I’ve improved my skills using the Cintiq that working in the real world feels more natural. Funny how that happens.

Incidentally, I created a fine art section for my online store where I’ll be selling original sketches and limited edition gallery prints. This is different than my other prints in that most of my other prints are unlimited non-numbered prints. If you are looking for some cool gallery-worthy art, check that out here.
