One bad apple

Another go at mostly painting, just using pencil lines for the overall shape and some pens for the lettering on the sticker. I usually add water-colour at the end of a sketch, after establishing line and shade with ink. Here it was all built out of colour, letting the paint dry before adding the next glaze for the green and red markings and the stalk shadow, or painting wet-on-wet for the bruise (the skin was broken and rot was slowly spreading…)
