is... this critique partner negging? lmao
Here's how I responded, if you're curious. I deleted the parenthenticals less we get into an email shitfest, though that is still and always a possibility
Finally finished this sucker. Was done with the "drawing" part of it ages ago, but spent forever tweaking the colors and the lighting, only to go with the simplest option in the end.
Illustration from the very last scene of my novel #EmpathAndAugur
If you wanna read it, the first act is available for free on my site. :)
Uploaded this painting of Maya in some scifi armor.
Largely informed my palette and style for the comic I'm working on. Unfortunately I also switched from autodesk sketch to Krita so it's been taking some trial and error to recreate it.
sharing some WIP sketches
Was having trouble with one one of the poses in my comics, did some sketches to try to work it out. By attempt 3 or 4 it ended up far more natural than it started.
I wanted something that was a mix of reticent and dismissive, mostly conveyed through what direction Maya was facing and whether she was facing up or down.
I ended up going with the far left on the second set of images.
A siren and a selkie walk into a bar...
Apologies in advance for:
1. dark subject matter. If you want to read, check out the content warnings first
2. purple prose. I was still in that phase when I wrote this. I kind of trimmed it down though.
If you took the time to read it, please let me know!
I'd say that about half the time I'm not wearing my coat, it's being used as a cat bed, even if the cat beds are literally right there!
I'd rather they not but they're just so darn cute. Especially when they're all snuggly together like this!
I confess, most of my #makingComics progress is during our DnD sessions. It's the only time I really sit down and have absolutely nothing else to do with my eyes and hands.
Got one mini panel left, and then I get to figure out how I want to do my first ever speech bubbles in this sucker.
PS: now is the time for any (politely worded) advice on anatomy, consistency, storytelling, etc. It's always very appreciated!
Somehow I've managed to get out of sync on my comics between mastodon entities. Page 4's already out on my other account, but I still wanted to post here to talk about some of the more art related stuff.
I feel like of all the stuff I've ever made, this is probably the best I've ever done with coloring stuff. The yellow and pink lighting was really fun, but a lot of work.
Again, any feedback folks have is welcome for future comics work.
