5/12/2018 Streaming News

I streamed again today. I got some new progress done, added Leprechaun Squire and did a bit more refining where it needs to be, values could use more work and the texture variety is lacking.
I won’t be stream next week as I’ll be at Anime Central hanging out. I’ll be streaming the week after though.
I thought I would get my comic done by now but other freelance opportunities and my stupid procrastination and perfectionism has put the comic in a perpetual 90% finished state that I can’t push through. I’m realizing this now and I’m gonna just let go, edit my lettering and get to drawing a cover and making my stupid zine already!

4/30/2018 Even More Art Stuff

More progress on my Rat Kingdom illustration painting for my stream last Saturday!

A tiny bit of color edits I had time to look at for Gogh the Goat Wizard. I’m not as confident with my color choices if I don’t have markers to do the palette choosing for me.

Some other experiments in painting over my old pencil artwork. I’m not feeling the values to be honest with myself.

An more older sketches.

4/21/2018 Rat Kingdom Painting

For my latest stream, I did something new where I painted my Rat Kingdom sketch I did a while ago.

In other good news, I am only one page of coloring away from completing Shirley’s Day! I’ll probably rework the lettering a bit and add a cover page, but I am very close to the completion of this three year project!

3/26/2018 Comic Progress and Sketchbook stuff

 

 

 

I’m feeling the pressure of C2E2 looming to finish this comic or even my portfolio in general. If you’ve been following me on any other social sites I’ve been a bit inactive due to placing more priority on the comic.

I never feel like to use my time effectively enough, which is true, I spend a lot of my available time writing and reference hunting for a completely new project that I’m chomping at the bit to work on instead of Shirley’s Day.

3-19-2017 Another Week Down of Art

I managed to flat up this larger first panel and make a few new friends on Mixer, so I’ve made decent progress!

I’m feeling nervous trying to complete this comic. It’s slower than I want and I worry that I won’t finish in time for C2E2.

Sketch I worked on in my car during times before work.

Concept Sketch for the Rat Queen and the Rodent Kingdom. They include (in clockwise) Squirrel Leprechaun, The Undead Sword Rat, Rat Captain, and…this bat with one eyebrow…

I still haven’t figured out names since I just sketch them without a real concrete story behind them yet. I just know they should be antagonists to Cole Blackmask, or even just tricksters. Who knows.

I can say that I’ve completed almost all of the color flatting for my comic and I can more forward to lettering and real coloring!

Thanks to all who watched my stream tonight! See you next Saturday at 5pm CST!
