This piece really illustrates well that you should never be too married to your designs where illustration is concerned.
I've completely redone this particular moment in the novella several times now even from a fully colored piece.
And I do not regret having done so in the slightest.
These pencils are several magnitudes stronger than the original piece I was going to use.
It will make the end product much stronger, and I get to still share the originals to peeps and make them work in my favor by attracting new peeps to my works.
I'm debating still just how much of Standard should be in this piece, whether the current scale is good or if i should shrink her down a tad.
as this is a mid point in the transformation Orphan still has about multipliers of mass to go through. before she reaches the point seen in some of the later pics currently available for Early Access to Copper Tier Patrons and up. ^ _^
Don't Forget that the Roll For Loot Contest ends tomorrow, everyone is waiting with baited breath to see if anyone will boost the reward pot.
Sadly I've only lost patrons this week. Y oY
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.
