Comic Update 1.1.45!

Hi everyone it’s Comic Update day! Check it out on Tapastic & Smackjeeves! This week’s challenge was giving the Cupid’s Arrow’s owner a not-so-nice farewell and some comeuppance from Secondet (and revealing his name). I am a little tardy in posting today, the week got away from so I had to play catch-up but I had to make sure the scene flowed smoothly and the perspective looked good. One more page to go for the end of the chapter!

Comic Update 1.1.44!

Hi everyone it’s Comic Update day! Check it out on Tapastic & Smackjeeves! This week’s challenge was figuring out how to create a lighter tone to the last scene to begin the end of the chapter. I’m rather happy with this page and the narrative flow in just two panels. Only two more pages to go! I’m excited to both start preparing for the next chapter and taking a break from posting full pages for a bit. I’ll still be posting on the comic sites, it will be supplementary sketches and chapter notes for both chapters.

Comic Update 1.1.43!

Hi everyone it’s Comic Update day! Check it out on Tapastic & Smackjeeves! This week’s challenge was to show Daikonran’s willingness to apologize and help Secondet out regardless of who the angel is.

Part of the struggle I worked through on this page was feeling discouraged at my own comic. This page took far too long to finish because I was constantly over-analyzing the view/follow count and asking myself if it was worthwhile to keep working on this project. But it’s thanks to you, my readers on this blog, on Tapas and Smackjeeves, that I decided to continue on and keep on publishing it. Thank you so much! ♥

I’ll be working on extra content once the chapter is done, so if there’s something you’d like to know about Chapter 1 or of the comic, feel free to ask and I’ll draw it!

3-Color Challenge: Spellcaster Prince

No prints of this piece but I do have commission slots available in this style!

Art Process

Hi everyone and welcome back to Color Challenge! This is a rather short video since I wanted to practice more chili style illustrations and brush up on my cel-shading technique. This week has been a little more busy than usual so my videos have been a little on the short side so I can keep up with all the content due in each day. This color challenge also marks the end of the strict structure of the series. I’ve found myself struggling to come up with more art with my webcomic; I’m actually running out of characters to draw without heading into spoiler territory, go figure! So I decided to stop adhering so strictly to 1 to 3 colors and focus more on the color choices and palettes. This doesn’t mean I’m abandoning the concept, it just means I’ll be working with more colors in some illustrations. The main ideas of this series are to practice restraint, draw more Nightmare’s Tragedies illustrations and finally have fun!

I’ll see you all in a bit for tonight’s stream! It might running a little late tonight, still have a lot of prep work to do!

Comic Update 1.1.42!

Hi everyone it’s Comic Update day! Check it out on Tapastic & Smackjeeves! This week’s challenge was to elaborate more on Secondet’s reasons as to why they wouldn’t take Daikonran’s offer without resorting to a wall of text. I wanted to imply what had happened before and how it broke Secondet’s trust in good intentions.

Comic Update 1.1.41!

Hi everyone it’s Comic Update day! Check it out on Tapastic & Smackjeeves! This week’s challenge was developing Secondet’s emotions as they realize what Daikonran’s plans were. This page was one of my favorites to plan since I wanted to bring back the tone and work with the “Knight in Shining Armor (t-shirt)” trope a little more. Daikonran is rather aloof given his circumstances but he has the best intentions in mind.

See you all next week!

2-Color Challenge: “Heiress” (Clip Studio Paint)

No prints available, but I do have commission slots available for this type of art!

Art Process

Hi everyone and welcome back to the bi-weekly Color Challenge! Like I remarked on Tuesday’s Postit’s been a gloomy and rather sunless week at my studio so I decided to move most of my art making to digital with the exception of tonight’s Art StreamI had no idea what to do since I was practicing my watercolors on my sketchbook and I wasn’t quite sure who I would draw this week. I wanted to focus more on the lighting and the effects so after sketching Lambda, Daikonran’s only daughter with the late Aurora. Her story begins in Chapter 2 alongside Lita’s but they’re mentioned in Chapter 1 as Daikonran’s motivations. In a way, she’s their heir and carries both her parents’ legacies. What they are will be revealed later 😉 !

I wanted to push the complementaries as far as I could, using only shades of blue and orange and only adding black, gray and white when needed. I’m honestly really happy with how the colors turned out and how the modeling looks! I’m proud of the way the shadows cooled down the farther they were from the light source and how the spell glows with some texture.
