Hoboy this took a while!
The main illustration was essentially completed weeks ago, but as I started breaking down the figure to rig it in Spine Esoteric I found that the main image changed just enough that I couldn't bring myself to finish posting it until the process had been completed.
Spine is such a crazy cool program! Been having a blast figuring out all its ins and outs to see what it can accomplish. There's still quite a ways to go until the animation is complete but you can see some glimpses of whats been figured out thus far.
Their just quick WIP animations where I simple slapped parts where they should be. They don't yet have proper squash and stretch, secondary movements, and ease in/out.
I think I probably broke the figure down far more than was actually necessary, now that I'm seeing all that the Mesh system can use. so the next piece will go much quicker. I'll even try my hand at animating some other artists images to see what I'm capable of.
Now all of these revelations have some major implications concerning how I move forward with my novella and Crimson Dames in general. I'll go into greater detail with what I've got planned in my next Raven Roundup (Formerly Raven Weekly).
Oh yeah and the pics have all been posted to the website too!
Regular versions for the Iron Tier,
High Res Files for the Copper tier,
Uncensored variants for the Silver Tier,
and the massive .PSD is available for Gold Tier Patrons (For learning purposes only)
Be sure to check them out and and tell me if you see any irregularities with the website. I'm sure I must have forgotten to link something properly somewhere.
Oh I also got the design over on teepublic as merch too!
Tell me what you think so far would love to hear what you think!
Apologies again for how long this has taken me to get a new update prepped for, I'll be posting some birthday sketches I recently created for peeps soon, and am also starting up on a new pic that I think is coming out rather well too.
Lots more to come see you soon in the stream tonight! And again for those of you who are already patrons, thank you so much! You have no idea how much you've helped me to advance as a creator.
Really hope I can track down a good local print shop that will let me get some new poster prints made soon. If you have any suggestions for places that can handle small print runs and ship please send it my way. ^_ ^
