Inks are coming along nicely! I'm going to see if I can't do something with this in Spine Esoteric too but will set it up so that I don't need to break it down quite so much. Which should save me a lot more time.
Hair will be an issue tho, will probably have to break that down deeper, and probably that back arm and hand. Which is why I saved the hair for last :p
Wont be able to post anything new for some days as I'll be kidnapped. Make sure you all stay safe over the holidays and especially stay informed!
\ ^_ ^
Mnrrg I'm moving so slowly! Yo Y
Been dealing with an intense lack of energy due to depression and various other maladies that have crippled my progression with this piece.
I've succeeded in getting the main body to be segmented in such a way that it should look seamless when its animated.
It wont have a huge amount of movement but I'm hoping that it will have a really interesting affect seeing her with an idle breathing animation.
Was really hoping to have this done before Halloween but its feeling like that wont be achievable.
Debating if I should switch to the animation once the body is complete or to do the background first so that it at least looks good as a static piece.
Oh yeah need to add the shredded clothing too.
Which route would you like to see me take with it?
Sorry for the long stretch without an update,!
Have been rather short on energy and didn't want to keep flooding the feed with only slightly more complete iterations of the previously posted image.
This is going to be my Halloween project for this year. will be getting it all set up t sell as shirts. the torn clothing is still up for debate if peeps would like a version with slightly more clothing. :p
I also want to try and cut this image apart to try and give it some animation via the Spine Esoteric program. I want to try and see how close I can accomplish some ambient animations similar to what they used in Dragons Crown. Albeit with a very different style.
I went ahead and included a couple of tough sketches I'd done since posting the last completed pic for those who hadn't seen them yet. ^_ ^
I feel my followings growth has grown rather stagnant due to my having to withhold my completed Novella pages. Do you think that I should start posting those to other social galleries? I don't want those of you who've been supporting me financially to feel that you've somehow been swindled or something. But I need to start posting more to widen my net.
Wont be enough to just be able to buy groceries in the future. I have so many projects I want to accomplish but will need the support of other creators to do so. Tell me what you think though, especially if your a patron! I want to ensure you are getting the value you feel is satisfying for the level of support you've gifted me with over these years.
Definitely feel though that I need to start putting out more stand alone art that tells its own small story. As my following is if anything declining since I've been focusing on my Novella.
Hoping I can get more energized before my birthday this 15th!? Don't forget I stream nearly every night if I'm awake enough to. ^_ ^
I crave your feed back! feel free to point out anything you feel is off with the pic. So I can better improve it. ^_ ^
Oh yeah is this even something you'd want to wear? or would a different medium be to your liking?
Colors are coming along slowly but surely!
Given the complexity of the forms its been a challenge to figure out the lighting.
The inks have been getting tweaked ever so slightly along the way too.
Currently am working in the highlights, still a ways to go but its starting to come to life now. ^ o^
Inks continuing to progress! :D
I'm contemplating if I shouldn't add a couple more of the Monstress copies just behind them closing in.
What do you think??
Inks underway for the next novella pic! This time showcasing some of RRH: Prisoner's unique combat style.
Also some random sketches peeps liked.
And something from the past?
Forgot to post that I finished this piece! XD
Is loaded up on the website now for the patron sections.
realized too that the link to my last pic wasnt working too, should be good to go now.
remember you can log in under Patrons if you are one and see the early access, high res files!
Managed to zero in on the adjustments I needed by flipping the canvas, am always forgetting to do that to ensure things look correct in both directions.
Just need to knock out the ground and I'll be able to start up the colors!
Rilly need to research a means to make it easier to tell how to support my work via the website, has been too long since any new patrons signed on.
I wish I had the time to keep up the sketches like before but they were just eating up too much time, and people weren't seeing enough progression for my main projects.
Need to find me a new quality local print shop too, the old one I was using just wont be a viable option. That way I can get some new physical goods for the patrons.
