The journey to learning how to create the ideal Female Werewolf with A.I. has been a pretty chaotic one. Stable Diffusion has proven to overall be a wash for me, with how unintuitive its systems are. At some point I'd like to attempt to train a model for werewolves on it with my better results elsewhere but for now I feel I'm starting to get close with Midjourney... and I'd likely have succeeded already if not for the dam censorship.
Either way I'm starting to find some fun poses that react well to some of the better models I've created so far as inputs. Which as been no easy task with most of my input attempts being blocked for censorship.
Decided to draw over one I liked the energy of below adding my own unique style to it. Cant ever just use the base 1 for 1 due to how inaccurate the anatomy often is, but is pretty good as a general guideline to follow.
I'll be posting the better of my results to a new page under the concept art section. Some of them make for very nice inputs tho most are blocked by the system. ;0
Not sure if i'll take this pic to completion yet but so far its a fun pose. Tell me what you think. ^_ ^
Tinkering with the layout of the Werewolf's body still but the pencils are nearing completion for the 4th and final of the Vs. illustrations featuring the 4 Red Riding Hoods and their Big Bad Wolves.
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.
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.
