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.
Complete at last! Man this took so long to complete, I really hope it was worth the effort. If you really like the final results please be sure to share it around and show it some love. :p

Starting today I'll be getting back to my sketch queue and knocking out as many as I can per day.
If you have a reservation in the queue and haven't filled it out yet nows the time. I really want to get it emptied out before moving on to my next piece and holding some contest for peeps.
And Don't forget!
Follow me on Picarto, and Piczel to never miss a livestream, and if your already a patron be sure to join us at the Official Crimson Dames discord server and join the community. We got spaces to have fun, share your own creations, or discuss anything you'd like, within reason. ;D
Also never feel like your not good enough to bring me feed back or critiques of my creations. Even an amateur artist can spot things I can improve upon at times. ^_ ^
3 of the 10 Shewolf ladies are complete! I hope to finish up the dark one in the back and the pale one next to her tonight and if there's time the blond one in the back too.
Is getting very close to completion now! Though I'm still wrestling with the idea of doing a censored variant where they have torn shreds of clothing covering them up.
I've no clue how much time that will ultimately add and or if it will take something away from the finished piece or worse, add something that might just not work without with the main piece.
Will just have to wait and see. :p
Once its complete I'll be getting active with the sketches and contests again as I jump right into the next work.
And don't forget! If your a patron and not part of the Crimson Dames Discord or the Livestreams or never even logged into the site once, then your really not getting the full value of your contributions. :p
And I'd love to be able to get more involved with you all to ensure I'm delivering the experience your hoping for.
With the background textured I started working in the highlights, starting with the cloth at the bottom. Experimented with a lot of different colors for it but found that a purple hue complimented the reds and orangy flesh tones best.
Am now working the highlight into Lady Wolf in the back.
Man the reduced scale drawing never feels quite as good as the high res version I'm working on. I need to find a more efficient means of reducing their scale. Has to be a setting I'm missing somewhere.
Is looking more and more like I wont be able to reach my personal goal of Halloween for this piece despite my earlier start for it sadly. .o ,
I'm sure tho that the extra time poured into it will really shine through at the end. ;D
What do you think so far? Any thing feel off yet? Any details stand out as needing a touch up or second pass? Send any feedback my way and consider joining the Discord or livestreams to be able to see it worked live and join the conversation. ^_ ^
