Now that the inks are in a good place the coloring is on! Working in the initial shadow layer for Historia.
Shading the grass will be an interesting challenge what with the angle I set the lighting for it.
I'm digging where its going so far tho just a lot of stuff to plug away at still.
Main body has been adjusted, gettin the grass to feel more unified with the winds direction.
Hows it feel to you???
Just got to where the inks were completed yesterday, but comparing it to the original pencils it just feels so stiff by comparison.
I am making the hard decision to redo the arms and the grass, as I don't like how that feels very much either.
Here are the major changes I'll be making.
Once I finish this pic I'll be getting back to the sketch requests so be sure that you got urs filled in. :p
Decided to change things up by making a fully colored illustration for patrons and non patrons alike. :p
I penciled this one up some months back, and thought it was about time I get it completed.
Need to think of some minor elements I could add to help provide her sense of scale a bit better.
Finally got the pencils for this one finished!
I'm tempted to do a set of these for each of the 4 Crimson Dames. Each with their own version of their Big Bad Wolf.
Thinking about it now, might be fun to do a stained glass take on this.
The piece is continuing to evolve as I work on it.
Got the idea to add some of the ghost bunnies. A motif I've grown to like with orphan.
Their not something she can see, nor any others in the story, their only there for us to see.
In a sense I see them reflecting her innocence, where as her Mother's specter is its inevitable loss.
Debating with myself if the wolf up top really works tho.
Contemplating that It might be better making the tree element larger, and just putting more bunnies about it.
Maybe instead could preserve the element of the eyes staring out from the murk of the forest.
