Stream commission I did for http://catwithabat.tumblr.com/ Super, super fun to paint and stuff oh man but now it is time for me to rest and sleep haha!
Here are some sketches I did in my morning class during a lecture and a few from yesterday too. May or may not color some of these, we’ll see haha. Super, super excited for this term you guys.
Oh and that first piece is a part of the cover art for Chapter Three of that comic thing I’m working on.
Some sketches I did breaking in a new sketchbook and warming up.
Little illustration about lighthouses I did just now. Mostly, just wanted to break in a new sketchbook so I can begin filling the other pages with things haha.
Definitely, when going through this again I’ve been changing a lot of things that felt awkward or didn’t need to be there. It’s cool being able to recognize when changes need to take place, I just hope it is interesting enough to keep people reading and if not then I’ll at least have to make the art in it look nice or something haha! It’s just been a tough balance since I want you to have time to get to know some characters before things happen but I don’t want to do too much with them. We’ll see when it is done I suppose haha!
Also, just finishing up Chapter two’s rough sketches. I think I’m going to try and rough out all four chapters and then finish them all off at the same time. For promotional stuff I’ll probably post the chapter title pages when they get completed since those will be pretty interesting to give an idea of what sort of things happen!
It’s a pretty long story I wrote from like 2009-2012 titled “Azura” after the main character. It ended up at like 300 pages in word and the storyline is pretty complicated since there’s a lot of spoiler twists and turns.
The basic premise though is revenge, corruption and closure. Essentially it follows a group of friends who embark on a journey after another one of their friends disappears and they end up stumbling upon way more than they had bargained for. I have the entire thing all planned out and I wish I could release it chapter by chapter but I’m kind of worried that it’ll be too boring and slow with all the setup in the first few chapters so I might wait until I complete at least to chapter four to start posting it since that is when the story really starts going anyway.
I’m really excited to finally be working on it though - it’s been something I’ve wanted to do for a very long time and now that I am working on it I am really, really happy. I just want to pump these chapters out as nice and quick as I can so I can finally start it off! I just hope that everyone likes it!
So, I have over fourty pages of my comic blocked out now. Which means the first chapter will be fully rendered and colored before too long (commissions get priority though) and also I got some great new acrylic paints today so hopefully some of that stuff coming soon too!
Until then though enjoy the picture of our cat, Joey, sleeping against the wall to avoid summer heat.
