First Chapter of Liminal is Up!
Knuckled down and finished up the colors today. Almost all in one shot. Thankfully, the child was merciful and mostly just wanted to run around outside in the heat with his dadda, so I got a lot more time than usual. Now to draw the rest of the chapters.
Got a Pentel Pocket Brush and am redoing all of Chapter 1 with it. I really like working on paper again. For a long time, I had an issue with "ruining" good paper and so I moved to digital only, but doing these drawings with the brush pen has forced me to accept the little mistakes and surprises that naturally come with brushes and I like the look of it a lot more. Still probably going to do the watercoloring in Rebelle because that's what I know and I really need to just get this thing done. I'll practice on the side for future projects though. This page marks the halfway point for Chapter 1. Hope to get it all drawn in the next day or so as toddler naps allow.
Webtoon prep time
I interrupt our stream of wholesome pastoral watercolors to introduce a sneakpeek at my psycological horror mini webtoon for their canvas contest. I only had an hour of time to paint last night, so I decided to do a real quick style test. The style is probably changing a bit. It's not dark enough and if this guy is going to be trapped in a mine, then it sure as heck better be super dark. I also made the most useless timelapse of the process with my 1988 vhs camera and that will be [here] and [here] when the video is uploaded. So check back if it's not there yet.
wip map for my short webcomic
Here's a small part of that cave/mine system I built in SculptVR to help me visualize what my locations looked like. This thing was half a gig, but some tweaking in blender got it down to 8mb. Now all my programs don't complain anymore.
