Toonikun's digital paintings

Sadly, this artist never uses their real name online, but they do go by Toonikun. Anatomy seems to trip this artist up a little bit, but what I really love about their work is the integration of pencil drawings and watercolor paintings. There is still some painting involved, but it seems to me that they mostly work using the Dodge and Burn tools in photoshop- tools that are typically considered lazy shortcuts in digital painting, but that work beautifully for this particular style of art. I include this artist because of this approach- it is unusual and breaks a lot of rules, but still can be considered fantastic work.
