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!

Hi everyone! My Twitch Art Stream is now ONLINE! Click HERE or on the image to join in! I just got home from a small vacation away from the studio so I’m trying to get back into the art making mindset for the rest of the week. I’ll be using some new watercolor paints I picked up and chilling.

Comic Update 1.1.46 (End of Chapter 1)!!

Hi everyone it’s Comic Update day! Check it out on Tapastic & Smackjeeves! This week’s challenge was creating an awesome last page for this very first Chapter using traditional inks and Clip Studio Paint! I’m elated to say Chapter I of “Nightmare’s Tragedies” is DONE! Almost a full year of drawing pages non-stop have come to a…not a close, but a quick break!

Like I said before, I will be taking at least a month off from drawing pages to get ready to work on Chapter II: “Arrival of Dreamless Nights”. The character designs are pretty much done, the script is getting a bit of an edit and I’m gathering as much reference material & practice as I can to make Chapter 2 as pretty as I envision it.

Stay tuned for the next couple of weeks: I’ll be sharing concept sketches, world building, literary analysis (I get to use my degree!), and more of Chapter I!

This past year was a learning experience in freelancing as an illustrator and as a webcomic artist. Not going to sugar coat it, it’s been incredibly difficult to start from the ground up. There were some days when I just didn’t see the point in continuing this comic because it was/is so time consuming. It felt like I was shouting into the nothing and pouring my energy into something “unproductive”. It’s thanks to your feedback, your kind words, reading and liking the pages, that I pulled myself out of that mentality and got motivated to keep going.

I have a big personal endeavor in the works for the end of July, so keep a look out! In the meantime, check out the next episode of Timelapse Tuesday! I recorded the entire process for this page from sketch to final touches and I’m super proud of it!

Thank you so much and I’ll see you all next week!
