Figures Decoratives and Color

I've been thinking about borders lately. I would like to do more of them.

Also, I've been toying with the idea of opening an Etsy shop with little prints of sketches and such. This has led me to more experiments in digital color with my sketches.

(original sketch here)

What do you think? Let me know in the comments section.
Is an Etsy store a good idea or just a time sink? Do you like the color or would you rather have the simplicity of the black and white line?

Long Awaited

Thanks to everyone who watches my blog and sits through all of my practice work and sketches waiting to see illustrations. I know, it's been a while, but I have a bunch of new images to show you! Images which I will divulge over several posts. (We can't have too much fun all at once)
So here are two creature illustrations, painted for an upcoming table top role playing game. Both are painted in oil and finished with a few color tweaks in photoshop.

Cafe People

Some more somewhat tonal sketches. I think the girl in this set is starting to look overworked, a danger when working this way.
