I can draw affection! I promise!

Doodle of two characters kissing. One has scarred lips, if you're wondering what those squiggly lines are... Er.

Skal character roughs.

For those familiar with my characters from Arelith, yes, that's Voresh. :D I'm developing some characters I've made previously. It's very fun to adapt them to new situations.

Working from home during Easter.

Here's a link to more of a closeup: Click me ZOMG!

Trying to work with small environments.

Arelith doodle.

A young version of my character from Arelith.

She was a very pleasant teen.

Some more quick costumes and characters.

Oriental costume doodles.

Sorry for the silence on the blog! Been working on BnM and other things and just haven't had the time :/

But here are some beginning ref-doodles of oriental costumes to inform my brain before I start my new personal project.

Moarrrr letterringg!

This is with a new font.

First attempts.
(And there are pages missing, so don't try to read this in order.. :P)

((How to describe a sound in someone's head... Difficult))

Page 9 - 11 First letturzzsch!

First attempts, so.. Yeah. Rough!

EDITED ON BOTTOM. Lettering for the very first time!

I fear my lettering-virginity has now been claimed by Adobe Illustrator!

These are my very first attempts at lettering and testing out one potential font. I will be doing the speech bubbles 'by hand', so ignore how perfect and round those elipses look. Grr.

Not sure if that header is even going to be on that page. I might ask to draw a Chapter1 Intro picture.

I know white on black is like DEATH for the cornea, but hey ;D

Skipping page 2-3 due to them not being finished...

Still in Angelica thought mode. Also trying to use semi transparent balloons to make it gentler on the eyes.

Jumping to page 6 where I've got my first issue! :D The dialogue doesn't currently fit on the last panel (it spills out), so I've got to sort that out somehow.

Lettering is actually REALLY FUN.


Here's two of the pages without the black line around the balloons.
(keep in mind I still havent fixed the issue with the dialogue on the last panel)

Page 0 - 17 (Excluding 14-15)

((top and bottom borders still in progress))

((top and bottom borders still in progress))

(14 - 15 missing)

Almost there with Chapter 1!

When you spend all day staring at entire pages, you soon start to appreciate the closeups more than the actual whole thing. Hm.

Will start posting the pages of the chapter today here. Unlettered. Also have not done the colour balance etc since I need to do that at Uni where the screens are good.

Doing more environments...

... With atmospheric lighting.
Click Me for Sketchie!

Above is the sketch for a large painting I'm currently doing of my Arelith character's home. It's a small storage room with lots of trinkets and whatnots. :) FUN.

Will obviously post the painting later!

Burning the evidence in the bathtub.

Here's an example of one panel from the Graphic Novel with burned corners. I really enjoyed burning it! And the smell is fantastic!

The flames did get a bit over excited when they got to her bum.

Choices, choices.

Another splash page for Butterflies And Moths.

The beer bottle still needs work, among other things.
