Y'know, I gotta say... his lineart is surprisingly clean compared to what the final product usually ends up looking like. It's got a certain gritty retro-ish feel to it when it's rendered in black and white like this. Really makes his art pop more.

I agree, the art here looks great IMO much better than the final product.

Not what I was expecting at all, but in a good way. These look amazing.

Definitely gritty, and definitely awesome.
