Finally got this one complete!
Mnrrrg took a long time to get the energy arcs to where I was happy with them.
It should be uploaded to all of the patron pages. Hit me up if you have trouble locating any of the various version. :p
One of the things I'm hoping to do once I move over to wordpress is to have all of this content be contained on the same page.
Using Member Press to section off content based on the Patronage Tier peeps have.
I also want to set it up so that the dividers. header, and nav icons change based on the same. Meaning... that I'll probably take some time to create those new sets. I'm contemplating renaming the tiers to reflect the designs of said sets.
Given the current set, I would redefine that as Iron (Wood). actually maybe I could just get away with changing the wood tier, or mebbe make copper into Steel?
Iron < Copper? < Silver < Gold, That should work, or how bout steel instead of copper? The nave Icons I'd just have to recolor, but would need new designs for the main 3 to get them all guilded looking.
Tell me what you all think of the new pic and I really wanna know what you all think of it. ^o ^
Finally the initial shadow layer down! :D
Phewa the colors even at this stage are already breathing new life into the line art. ^ o^
Whats going to be trickiest getting the energy trails tp look good.
I might still need to decrease the width of some of the lines especially in the main bold of energy arcing between her hands.
Tell me what you think so far and if u have an recommendations or ideas that you think might beef it up some. ^ o^
Finally got this one completed tonight! ... For the third time. TT oTT
I'm usually of the mind set that it's best to move on from older works, but as this is an illustration for an as yet unreleased product I need it to be the best it can be.
I really need to double my efforts and get this thing finished before my skills hit a new spike in growth and I'm back at correcting this piece yet again. XD
Please don't forget to help out with sharing links to my works and if you really love what I'm aiming to achieve maybe consider becoming be patron too. ^ o^
Oh yeah the full scale image is up for early access in the Copper Tier section!
Starting to work in the highlights for Standard, meanwhile I'll also be adjusting the layers on orphan to match the temperature of the later images more.
Background will have to be repainted from scratch but should overall be the least troublesome aspect to updating this drawing.
Starting to feel like I'll never get this project finished with how slow I'm moving.
Gives me worry as to how well I'll be able to handle a more traditional comic format later. I guess I'll figure that out when I get back to the Shewolf Bride 1 shot comic.
I wish I could find an artist skilled enough to match my style and be as dedicated to the cause, but I'm just not bringing in enough funds at the moment to really even think about hiring another full time artist just yet.
My last attempt at hiring on an inker went so poorly it really left a bad taste in my mouth.
If I could just work faster. So much of my time is lost in the inking process, having to clean up linework because my computer/programs refuse to paint the lines to the level of precision I'm physically drawing them at on the tablet. I always have to go back in and clean them up.
Sadly its the sort of thing that only I really notice, I've seen other artists works up close and the sloppiness of their line art up close is horrifying. XD
I just cant downgrade to a sloppier line work tho in the effort of saving time. I've tried to do so repeatedly but it always just ends with me eventually falling back into my slower grindstone methods after so many pages. ;V
Oh yeah I'm feeling restless today so I'll be taking the night off, well I say that but I'll really be messing with the website till the wee hours of the night. . o ,
Sorry it took so long with this one. Got it posted up on Teepublic and the Perilous Quest Gallery.
I don't get much of a cut per sale but wearing my work in the wild helps to raise awareness of my works. ^ o^
I'll get the High Res Version posted soonish for patrons.
I think I might try my hand at another quick design using some of the avatar crops I've made up to this point. Should be quick yet effective. Hopefully.
Please help spread the word, I need all the help I can get! ^ o^
