First pass as the lighting effect on the hair and feathers are almost complete!
Still working on the big sisters legs.
After that I'll start up on the highlights for their skin.
Trees still need don't have any highlights yet either.
Am pretty happy with how its coming out so far.
I'm still debating if i should do a censored variant to help provide more value to the Silver and Gold tier patrons. That and it would allow me then to put the design on some merch and such.
It would closer to loin cloth and bits of torn fabric so as not to make 1 version wildly better than the other.
I really need to find me a new quality print shop to get some full size posters made, preferably I'd love to get some wall scrolls created. Any of you have any leads on places that could do walls scrolls affordably? Preferably without having to go through China?
Could be cool too to do double sides posters with 1 side being the uncensored variant.
Would love yo hear your input on them. I do really want to get some products out to my long time patrons who've been so instrumental in keeping me going. Your all the best, even those of you who can't afford to support fiscally. :p
Started up the highlights today!
Mainly on the Middle Sister so far.
Hows it feel so far tho? This is just an initial pass so lots more work ahead. Their skin will feel brighter overall too by the end.
Wanting to make sure I capture that sheen tho that will be crucial in telling them apart later.
Still debating if I should do a censored variant for print purposes.

Made several changes to the line art today. Probably imperceptible to all but me unless your directly comparing previous versions of the work thus far.
I beefed up the chin for the Big Sister some, and gave her 2 feather decorations in her hair. Likely having originated from a bitter rival harpy she gutted some time ago. I recall seeing pet birds place paper cut outs they made themselves into what was the equivalent of their hair to stand out more.
I adjusted the anatomy of the Lil Sister, moved her collar bone a tad, pulled back on some of her scars, added her second leg in, and gave her a necklace.
The shadows are nearing completion, tho a lot of the detail in the wings still looks like a black blob. Which will hopefully read a lot better once I get the highlight layers going.
I really love the vampiric witchy look they have going for them at the moment. Will probably need to add a secondary light source to the front so that the under sides of their wings read better, just not sure what color to go with just yet.
Would love to hear what you all think so far!
Inks and Flats are complete and now beginning work on the shadow layer!
I really love this phase as its when the concept really starts to come to life.
I went with more of a raven/crow color scheme to give it a more gothic feel. tho they surprisingly feel very vampire like now. ;D
Yell me what you think so far or if there are any details you think are missing that would make it even better.
Rilly excited to finish this one.
Rilly starting to come together now!
Can't wait to see how this one turns out. Still trying to decide how I want their colors to be. Something like pale white skin with blood red feathers? Or maybe black like a ravens?
What do you think?
Started putting some work into the inks for this pic since it had been so long since penciling it.
I'm digging how its coming out so far.
Will likely work on other stuff too while working on it. :p
I got so much catching up to do tho.
And so much to research concerning investment opportunities.
Oof man 6 months to complete these 3 commissions.
Kills me that it all took so long. Now that their finally complete I'll first be focusing on inking my Harpy pic, I want to revisit my Red Riding Hood: Prisoner looking back at it lately I'm not as fond of the pose as I originally was. Then I'll get to work on the vampire versus pic.
Along the way I'll put work into the sketch queue though I probably wont be holding a contest anytime soon till I make some good progress on my own creations.
Really hoping I'll be able to speed up my production and be more active with updates in the upcoming days.
In other news had a major positive change happen for me, the VA accepted upgrading my disability claim and now consider me 100% disabled which is going to open a lot of new doors for me! Am seriously excited as it will help me to look into things like eventually hiring on other artists to help me speed things up.
Gonna be able to upgrade my aging art equipment, mebe get a vehicle or moved into a new space. Especially want to look into getting some posters made of some of my creations to send to patrons and maybe even look into hiring an artist to help me create a sculpture of one of my Shewolves.
Things are starting to really look up and I can't wait to see how it will positively affect my creations. ^o ^
My progress on my new website build is stalled a bit for the time being till I get some more art assets created and figure out the complex CMS system. If any of you happen to be wizards at that stuff would love to bounce some ideas off of you to see if what I'm wanting to do is even feasible.
