The wolfs anatomy keeps undergoing a number of changes, but I think its just about where it needs to be now. :p
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.
First pass as the lighting effect on the hair and feathers are almost complete!
Still working on the big sisters legs.
After that I'll start up on the highlights for their skin.
Trees still need don't have any highlights yet either.
Am pretty happy with how its coming out so far.
I'm still debating if i should do a censored variant to help provide more value to the Silver and Gold tier patrons. That and it would allow me then to put the design on some merch and such.
It would closer to loin cloth and bits of torn fabric so as not to make 1 version wildly better than the other.
I really need to find me a new quality print shop to get some full size posters made, preferably I'd love to get some wall scrolls created. Any of you have any leads on places that could do walls scrolls affordably? Preferably without having to go through China?
Could be cool too to do double sides posters with 1 side being the uncensored variant.
Would love yo hear your input on them. I do really want to get some products out to my long time patrons who've been so instrumental in keeping me going. Your all the best, even those of you who can't afford to support fiscally. :p
Started up the highlights today!
Mainly on the Middle Sister so far.
Hows it feel so far tho? This is just an initial pass so lots more work ahead. Their skin will feel brighter overall too by the end.
Wanting to make sure I capture that sheen tho that will be crucial in telling them apart later.
Still debating if I should do a censored variant for print purposes.

Made several changes to the line art today. Probably imperceptible to all but me unless your directly comparing previous versions of the work thus far.
I beefed up the chin for the Big Sister some, and gave her 2 feather decorations in her hair. Likely having originated from a bitter rival harpy she gutted some time ago. I recall seeing pet birds place paper cut outs they made themselves into what was the equivalent of their hair to stand out more.
I adjusted the anatomy of the Lil Sister, moved her collar bone a tad, pulled back on some of her scars, added her second leg in, and gave her a necklace.
The shadows are nearing completion, tho a lot of the detail in the wings still looks like a black blob. Which will hopefully read a lot better once I get the highlight layers going.
I really love the vampiric witchy look they have going for them at the moment. Will probably need to add a secondary light source to the front so that the under sides of their wings read better, just not sure what color to go with just yet.
Would love to hear what you all think so far!
Inks and Flats are complete and now beginning work on the shadow layer!
I really love this phase as its when the concept really starts to come to life.
I went with more of a raven/crow color scheme to give it a more gothic feel. tho they surprisingly feel very vampire like now. ;D
Yell me what you think so far or if there are any details you think are missing that would make it even better.
Rilly excited to finish this one.
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?
Phewa man this ones been pretty grueling.
I'm only at the early stages of the colors currently.
The Inks and Flats are largely done and I'm working the shadow layer.
I started the background first so that I can have the colors better inform the main figures.
Had some kidney stone issues among other maladies that messed me up for about a week or so there, but at least the one issue has resolved itself for the now.
I deeply apologize for how long Ive got without any updates. Once these 3 are complete I'll be doing my best to ramp up production on the novella again, I also still need to finish the the last of the Vs project, and the shewolf comic. Phewa.
Really thinking I need to pull away from doing sketches for other people and shift focus back to showing off my own creations.
Finances been rather slim due to these delays and I really wanna get one of these major projects finished and available for consuming soon.
Refined Pencils for this project. Tightened up the anatomy and such. Need to add some garbage and other refuse to the one open locker in the background.
This is the simpler of the 3 commissions I'm plugging away at future render phases will come about in the future too.
