happy summer solstice!! 🌞
Finally bought a rose for my watercolor set & I’m soo pleased with this color ✨
Made some banners for my comic! ✨
Super excited to mention that I’ve started posting Chapter 3 this week, and also, Kochab is joining Hiveworks! They’ll be helping with building a new website, editing, and promoting, and I’m really glad to be joining lots of good company with the other comics they represent. :-)
(Here’s some scrapped cover ideas! These felt a little too serious/quiet for a cover - I think I’m gonna go with something a little more energetic/cute !)
I haven’t been able to start drawing Chapter 3 just yet - some unexpected work come up, plus finishing the writing took longer than planned (this chapter looks like it’ll be the longest one! :’) But I’m currently on to thumbnailing, and based on the other work I have planned for February, I think I’ll definitely be able to have some pages up within the month!
Thanks so much for sticking around - I’m really excited for this next chapter, & can’t wait to share it <3
I’m trying to be more comfortable with doing looser things, & posting unfinished stuff - here’s some doodles from my academic class, along with a crop of this week’s Kochab page, and new banner image!
Also, my proof copy for the printing of chapter 1 came in earlier this week!! I was really surprised to feel so strongly about holding it in my hands.. at the same time, made me notice everything I need to do better at - but I’m really, really excited to keep going and improving :’)
I’m half-way finished making chapter 1!
Feels like slow going cause I’m still figuring stuff out & learnin - and can’t be happy with my work, yet. I haven’t felt this in a while, but with an old project like this it seems like it always feels better while you’re dreaming about it, and hard to replace those perfect vague ideas;;
But anyway - feels good at least to be learning! Gonna get there slowly but surely.
Here’s my current progress with my senior thesis comic project!!
I finally had an idea for an ending to this story while I was studying abroad last semester, and I finished scripting, then thumbnailing & sketching while I was home in Alaska this summer - so for the rest of the year I’m gonna be finishing pages of this comic! (Also, here’s some concept art from over the last 3 years, + stills from a short animation from 2 years ago, recently touched up for my thesis proposal!)
I’m SO incredibly excited to finally be making this thing - although I’m super new at doing comics I hope you guys’ll enjoy seeing this develop!
hi guys! sorry I haven’t been posting much this last month - I’ve been finalizing/thumbnailing a script for a new big project, and haven’t had a lot of visuals to show.
I’m aiming to start posting this project later this year, but until then I’ll try to keep you guys up to date with previews or sketches! :)
Finally had time to add some color and sound to my final project from last semester’s Intro to 2d Animation class!
This is sort of what I thought of as the beginning of the story that I had in mind for one of my old personal visual development projects :) These illustrations are from that project, but these are reworked/finally finished versions from earlier this year !
I’m repainting some pics from a few weeks ago, because I finally figured out how the lighting should work with them!! Just wips right now but I’m already so much happier with them (:
And here’s a couple other designs for this story, from this week!
More work from this project! Redrew some of the sketches from the last post, and a little environment design… The first two pictures are just wips, but school just started again so I won’t have time to finish them for a while;; Will try to post more this semester though!
Also I wanted to mention again that I got a facebook page recently, if any of you want to follow there! ^^
Here’s a few things I’ve been working on lately!! Just trying new stuff.. Not sure if those first two are better with or without a little quick background.
