Colors are coming along slowly but surely!
Given the complexity of the forms its been a challenge to figure out the lighting.
The inks have been getting tweaked ever so slightly along the way too.
Currently am working in the highlights, still a ways to go but its starting to come to life now. ^ o^
Inks continuing to progress! :D
I'm contemplating if I shouldn't add a couple more of the Monstress copies just behind them closing in.
What do you think??
Inks underway for the next novella pic! This time showcasing some of RRH: Prisoner's unique combat style.
Also some random sketches peeps liked.
And something from the past?
Managed to zero in on the adjustments I needed by flipping the canvas, am always forgetting to do that to ensure things look correct in both directions.
Just need to knock out the ground and I'll be able to start up the colors!
Rilly need to research a means to make it easier to tell how to support my work via the website, has been too long since any new patrons signed on.
I wish I had the time to keep up the sketches like before but they were just eating up too much time, and people weren't seeing enough progression for my main projects.
Need to find me a new quality local print shop too, the old one I was using just wont be a viable option. That way I can get some new physical goods for the patrons.
Inks are progressing for Orphan! Hair needs more work doesn't feel quite right just yet but is getting there. ^ o^
Finally got Standards inks just about finished for this pic! Need to finish adding the scales of her under armor and tighten up some of the line weights.
Then I'll begin inking Orphan! shes about 75% transformed here, already double her original size and her muzzle full of fangs is starting to elongate!
At this point in the story Prisoner and Vampire have both fallen into a collapsed floor and wound up in a strange warped space within the seams of the doom cabin.
Will the Monstress succeed in in using Orphan to slay her intruders??
Next novella Illustration I'm working on.
Some items don't feel quite like their working yet and some of the adjustments I've made feel like they've thrown off the balance, so I'll have to tinker with the overall layout.
Not sure if Orphan's face in this pic is quite working out, feels a tad small too.
Contemplating redoing the expression entirely.
Its almost complete! Still adjusting the color temperature to get it feeling a it less monochromatic.
Am not quite happy with the glow effect on the banner too just yet. So that needs a bit more pushing and pulling.
Rest of it is nearly complete though. Hopefully one or 2 more nights will get it over the finish line.
Don't forget! I've updated the Novella Preview pages to include sepia versions of the finished pieces so people can get a better sense of works and hopefully maybe be a bit more enticed to sign on as a patron. :p
This will probably be the last time I post this unfinished as I don't want to risk people sharing the unfinished version. :\
