Art Process

Hi everyone and welcome back to Timelapse Tuesday! This week’s episode was a break from my usual color work for a bit to play in line art. I wanted to play with lines and really build a solid drawing before considering adding more values through toners. It’s a rather short, but fun video!

I made this illustration while working on the webcomic pages. It’s interesting working on several things at once, since I was working solely on the pages around this time last year! It’s interesting and sometimes surprising how much I’ve expanded my art content in so little time to include YouTube, Twitch & Patreon as well as this very blog!

I tend to limit myself to the G-Nib and the Mapping Pen tool when I ink, since I can handle them quite well in my style. I’m trying out new pen settings for more textured and sort of “organic” lines for my pages, as well as practicing my perspective sketching!

I’ll see you all soon for tonight’s Twitch Stream! Thank you for reading!

Comic Update: Chapter 2 Release date!

I am happy to announce Chapter 2’s release date! Click on the image or HERE to check out the full Patreon post with details on what’s up with this chapter after the, what, 3-week break I allotted to myself before I got antsy and started working on this webcomic again.

I’ll be posting exclusive production notes during the course of the next 3 months as I work to my Patreon Supporters and Early Access to the pages! The webcomic will remain free for everyone! It will be released simultaneously on all my web platforms every Friday at 5pm on November 10!

Thank you so much for reading and your support throughout the years! I’ll see you all next time!

Side note: I’m over the moon with how lovely Lita looks in this cover! I mean the whole cover is looking great, but I had to redraw her face a few times before getting it right!

Art Process & Motivation

Hi everyone and welcome back to Timelapse Tuesday! This week’s illustration was product of several art attempts before I settled on this one.  I go into more details in the video, but I went through at least 3 ideas, both in traditional and digital media, before I decided to break out my acrylic paints and give them a try after months of struggling with oil paints.

Don’t get me wrong, I love the buttery consistency and loooong open time of water-soluble oils, but setting up for a oil painting session takes quite a bit of prep work that I wasn’t planning on doing if I wanted to make my weekly deadline! I found myself enjoying acrylic paints for the first time in months, so I hope I’ll be doing more to balance out my content!

I’m still trying to figure out a good content management & schedule strategy so I can have more leeway for more experimental illustrations, Patreon and blogposts.
