I started inking the expanded body for this original designs and am really digging the power that curve in the back is adding to the overall piece.
Though looking at what I penciled up yesterday for the other phases of the transformation I'm not really feeling them anymore.
I think I can salvage the face and hair for the first but pic of Orphan but the body's elongated form doesn't feel as interesting as I hoped it would yet.
Then the second pic I did feels like its not working at all so I'll seek out something with more of the energy that this expanded 3rd piece has.
Tell me what you think though and don't forget the "Roll for Loot Contest" is live! Jump on in there and cast dem bones.
And don't forget to spread the word as each new patron or upped pledge will boost the pot. I would love to have the problem of having to draw 50 sketches due to an addition of 50 patrons. XD
The second image here also feels too close to the final form. an issue I'm always struggling with.
The completed inks for the latest novella pic.
The completed color version will only be available as early access until the project is officially complete.
Seeing how this ones been turning out I see now that I really need to go back and adapt the "Battle for the Doom Cabin" piece.
It's been needing some minor improvements, but I think I need to completely redraw orphan for that piece. As I was still narrowing down her final shewolf design when that first piece was done so long ago.
This piece will have quite a bit of blood spray. You might not be able to tell without the colors but the Monstress is having her throat torn out by Orphan.
Most of the torn tendrils are thanks to Vampire's necromancer bolts. to include the blown out eye and gaping wound in her torso.
I'm not precisely sure how to classify this creature. It starts off as a ghost, tied to a pocket dimension, but shes able to go corporeal when psychic attacks failed to get the job done.
Perhaps this shouldn't be the final appearance of this monster. maybe the next time she appears she'd be better suited as a minion for Vampire.
Inks are finally complete! Been adding / pulling back on them a tad as I worked in the flats.
I'll reveal those tomorrow! ^ o^
Finally the inks are complete! Just in time for...
Well their finished. XD
Man the scope of this piece has grown so much I can't believe it.
Some details might be difficult to make out currently but I assure you that once I get the colors layered in things will really start to pop.
Just wondering now if I shouldn't go more for a Bluish hue overall or a more rose like sepia.
I guess I should go back and add just a few more clothing elements to the Shewolf and Gillgal. Just to ensure I have a SFW version for the main merch line.
Perhaps take away a bit from the Vampire. Meaning I got more inking to do still, tho I should be able to get to coloring tomorrow, er... today I guess.
Ah well no rest for the weary. I must push on.
Which spooky lady has been your favorite so far? I'm open to ideas on the color schemes. I'll be aiming to set them up though so that they really pop against the background and from one another.
I'm really hoping that I'm able to make some decent returns on this. this has been one of the most time intensive individual illustrations I've attempted so far. And there's still about a week more to go at it. Y oY
After It's finished I'll be knocking out the sketches for the recent batch of contest and birthday recipients.
Please help me to spread the word, and or consider lending me a hand by becoming a patron, or even just a single donation would be awesome. I'll give u a months worth of Patron benefits if u do. ^ o^
Overall I'm really happy with how its developing. why can't I seem to get any feedback tho, I wonder.
The 8th and final Spooky Lady is complete!!!
The gangs all here now! :D
Tomorrow I'll begin the background. There's a lot to lay down but I'm hopeful that I'll be able to finish that in a day as well.
I'm not entirely sure how detailed I'll wanna get with the colors. I'm contemplating using rich colors with sharp anime styled shadows to ensure everything reads well in the final print.
Still gotta contemplate what I want to use the individual figures for merch wise.
perhaps a shirt for each one? Enamel Pins? Bookmarks? Body pillows? Snrk well their probably not large enough for that. XD
Tell me what you think tho! I crave your feedback. And please dont forget to help share them online. I need all the help I can get. ^ O^
