IF - backwards


My entry for the IF challenge this week with the theme word of backwards. Two skateboard dudes with their caps on backwards. I did a looser initial drawing with this illo, where the lines are more scratchy. I thought it fit the imagery better than more clean lines, but it was a bit problematic when I went to do the coloring in Photoshop. I'll have to work out the issues I had, if I want to try this again! I'd love to hear what you think of the scratchy style. Does it work for this piece? Please, leave me a comment with your thoughts. I'd appreciate the feedback.
