warmup self-portrait. Probably would have improved if I used real pencil/paper or picked my digital pencils better. Drew like I was using a much harder/lighter pencil.
Who has two thumbs and forgot to finish this in January, and is staying up until it’s finished ohgodohgodohgod
Edit: Progress as of 4:48 I forget when I started this. 3 something? uuuuggggggh
Edit 2: 6:45am, becoming difficult to keep putting significant thought into city/building design, easy to lapse into drawing blocks of nearly identical buildings. Definitely feel like I’ve been up all night yay.
Edit 3: 1:47 pm. Definitely slowing down. Brain dragging pretty hard. Have to take frequent breaks to freshen up so I avoid aforementioned identical blocks.
Edit 4: 8:20 pm Gaaaaaaaaaah
Edit 5: 11:00 pm Quitting until tomorrow. Don’t want to pull an all nighter and then stay up late finally finishing this. Will finish tomorrow. Lordy this is a lot to draw.
So A/B of what 8 hrs of nearly non-stop painting accomplished. Not as much as I would have liked. I think I may be trending into over-rendering and too much contrast in various places. (Like the ceiling hangings.) An old, bad habit. Makes things look plasticy. Will likely brighten up the darks in those.
I also need to learn how to do selective color-holds in Manga Studio.
Bed. Might luck out and get 6 hours? Fingers x’ed.
So during SDCC (But I was at home, so it was in the mail) I received the best ever fan gift from stl-ben. A book of Our Love is Real cover themed sketches from a bunch of comic artists, and two OLiR themed songs from two of his favorite bands, somehow on a plexiglass record. Hannah has a turntable so we were able to listen to it. It’s all also on a USB drive in the shape of a dog, in picture one, above.
The songs are up, here.
Thanks so much, Ben!
