Just about got the main figures to where I'm happy with them!
Though every day find some new issue needing correcting. XD
Now I need to figure out the background.
Will be some form of underground stone structure.
Which of these shewolf brides do you like most?
Are there any you think feel off still?
I suspect inking this piece is gonna be a major slog, what with so many figures.
In other news I'm on my 6th day without eating and am still not hungry. Tho after having stayed up too late one day I'm finding myself pretty low on energy, tho sleeping more helps to let the body break down even more body fat.
Started this Keto Diet and Fast at 245 lbs, and today I currently weigh 233.8!
Nearly 12 pounds lost so far. about 3ish more weeks to go before my birthday this October 15th! Will reward myself with a new pair of pants, and a gourmet Cheeseburger, preferably a Keto friendly one. :p
Will be a great way to start the clime to my 5th decade on this planet. ^_ ^Wish me luck! And don't forget to help spread the word!
And maybe consider becoming a patron to ensure I have the funds necessary to continue this endeavor. ^o ^
Since my Niece is visiting for the weekend things will be rather quiet from me this weekend.
But in the meanwhile I thought I'd share my current progress with the Shewolf Brides pages I've been refining.
Here's a Side by side of the initial rough pencils with the ones I've been refining.
For page 4 the biggest changes were for the 3rd and 4th panel. The 3rd especially fought back for several days before I got an ideal pose pinned down. XD
Page 10 is largely the same just more refined now.
I'm not sure yet if I want to finish up all the pages before moving on to my next full color illustration or not. I got 2 more Vs pics to do still too, one for Prisoner and one for Vampire.
Been mostly jumping to the pages that had needed the most work to stand properly on their own for the now.
Trying to stay up to resynce my borked sleep schedule, thanks to that though was able to finish up the pencils for this piece! :D
The banner was quite the challenge to get just the right amount of flow out of it. The worn out swords are representative of Standard going down the Path of Pins, or was it Needles??
I really like how White Wolf came out looming above.
I wanted him tearing at her banner, but I just couldn't quite figure out the pose for that, and it made less sense as the bottom portion neared completion. I think this works out rather well though.
Don't be afraid to send some feedback my way, can help a lot at this stage! Tell me if anything feels off or missing.
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!
\ ^_ ^
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.
