Apologies all for being so slow with updates.
I've been crushingly low on energy and my sleep schedule is all over the place. Making it quite hard to rally my strength to draw effectively.
Heres the first of the last months Roll For Loot Contest winners. Speaking of which This Months just went live! Be sure to make your way to the discord to participate! ^ _^
Sketch Reward for KeyBladeMark!
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.
I had forgotten to add the cloak to this piece and the completed "Cursed Meat" piece as well.
I'll get the new version of that posted up soonish. Just really been wanting to barrel ahead with knocking out as many pencils for all of the pages I can possibly contemplate needing/wanting.
It's helped a lot in allowing me the time to look over with fresh eyes the currently completed works and ensuring they are all up to speed, before finishing them and only then realizing I wasn't that fond of the final result.
Which has been a big part of why this project has drug on as long as it has. :\
Seeing all of the pages lined up in order side by side has really made me excited at how this is all going to look once complete. Once the pencils are all done I'll get back to finishing up the first draft then if any new images have been inspired after that I'll pencil those up as well, meanwhile inking the oh so many pages that have been added to the project. Y oY
Man took so long to get a good pose for this one pinned down! It fought me tooth an nail resisting being born.
Am pretty happy with how it turned out though.
Aurg man just realized! I forgot to add her cloak wrapped around her waist. Also just realized I forgot to add it into the piece where shes slaying the Monstress! > .<***
Do I add it back in to both pieces? Or write the story that it fell off? also realized I forgot to put in her belly scar. Y oY
Ah well whatever, I'll decide on it later. Am not awake enough to start that amount of work. :\
Will chill out the rest of the night with some video games, and hopefully get back to a day schedule. XD
Tell me what you think I should do tho. :p
Skirt or no skirt?
Realized too that I named a piece with the Monstress dogging Orphan as Wild Tormentor. I think I should change that one to be Wicked Tormentor, and this one to be Wild Tormentor.
Show a reversal of roles.
Trying to come up with a candidate for the human form of the Werewolf Stalker, AKA Vampire's Big Bad Wolf.
Some okay contenders here, a few I might revisit for side characters down the road.
A remake of my Awakening illustration for my Crimson Dames Novella!
This will actually be the 3rd time attempting this major scene.
This one fought me every step of the way! XD
It illustrates the moment were Orphans consciousness snaps back to awareness and she just can't deal with it. Its also the first time said has happened for her.
Usually Orphan's body goes through such a massive amount of growth that she can't cope with the intensity of the pain causing her lycan form to lock out her consciousness for her own protection, meaning that she has been runing on raw instinct this entire time.
Which is usually a highly dangerous time for anyone not Orphan in Orphans vicinity.
