Art Process & Update

Hi everyone! Today’s blogpost is a bit of a hodpodge of several topics so let’s get to it! I must confess I took yesterday off from YouTube and blogging to paint for myself and build more stock for my Pet Portraits Collection and opened up a Special Art Commissions page for them! It was nice to just focus on making art and not worry about editing videos or comic pages.

I apologize for not updating on the Twitch Stream yesterday as well, it’s still going at 7:30pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. It was reinvigorating to talk with people and draw the nights away.

I’ll be taking the month-long semi-break from the webcomic (that I never took haha) and taking some time to restructure YouTube content so it’s not so exhausting. I’ll keep on blogging and updating you all, I’ll just be a little more casual about it rather than being so rigid about the content!

As always, thank you so much for reading!

Art Process

Hi everyone and welcome back to Timelapse Tuesday! This video was a beast to make and edit, but I’m very happy how it turned out! Outside of cel-shade work, I’m not always happy with my digital painting skills but I do enjoying Clip Studio Paint’s pen tools. I’ve been thinking of transferring Chapter 1’s lines to watercolor paper but I want to give the process a try first with a new illustration before jumping in! Odd I know, but I think it was a success!

This is a scene I want to work in for Chapter 2 of Nightmare’s Tragedies, since it deals with the precursor conflicts before the storyline and, in a way sets up the comic’s plot in motion. I’ll talk more about it on Friday’s Comic Update, so stay tuned if you want more lore!

See you all soon for tonight’s Art Stream!

Comic Update Extra 1.2!

Hi everyone! It’s Comic Update day over at Tapas & Smackjeeves!
This is the first Webcomic Update featured on Patreon! This week’s Extra Page is about the orphaned Angel-Born Secondet Lainhart. Like it says on the page, Secondet is androgynous, so I refer to them as “they” most of the time though they are codified as male.
Their story is intrinsically linked with Daikonran’s, even before the angel was born. The Falsebound Angels are a group of angels that fought alongside Lady Lita in the Gryphen-Lyek Conflict. There were 5 angels, representing the different elements that balance all 3 realms. The reasons as to why they chose to get involved were mainly centered around preventing the conflict to reach Earth (thus aggravating an already tenuous relationship between all 3).
Secondet is the child of the Healer Baltha and a human enchantress from Emmoni named Beatrice. Like stated in the comic, Baltha and Beatrice were killed in their home and Secondet was found among the bloodshed. Seccie has always doubted the story given by Tellus, but the records corroborated it. As to Secondet’s past lover, not much is really known about them other that he put them back in a boat back to Tellus’ brothel and broke the angel’s heart.
For now, Secondet’s mere presence helps unlock Level 1 spells for Daikonran and part of their journey is teaching the angel how to improve this.
That’s enough lore for this week! See you all next post!

Timelapse Tuesday #28: Starry Bouquet

Check out my Patreon for early access to all my content and exclusive content like lineart, full illustrations and longer videos!

Art Process

Hi everyone and welcome back to Timelapse Tuesday! This is the first week with my brand new Patreon campaign so on the recording and editing side, this was a doozy of an episode! I wanted to try out the Fluid Watercolor Paper I picked up a few weeks back but commissions and preparing for the Patreon launch threw me off for a bit!

Today’s video was mainly for laying as many watercolor techniques as I could on the paper to test it out before making full illustrations to offer to patrons and the shop. I’m also trying out my new Winsor & Newton Cotman paints along with my studio palette for a complete piece. I tried them before on my Twitch Streams on mixed media paper so it was awesome to see them work on stronger paper!

I would recommend this paper to anyone who would want a smooth finish without breaking the bank!

Materials

  • MIR Paints Watercolor set
  • Winsor & Newton Cotman in Dioxazine Violet and Prussian blue
  • Daniel Smith Watercolor in Cobalt Teal
  • Van Gogh Watercolor in Quinachridone Rose
  • Fluid Watercolor Hot Press Paper
  • Prismacolor Colerase Pencil
  • Unibal Signo Pen in White
