Firefly Page 2

Heyyy, page 2. I'm getting a little better and a little faster at this toning business, but it still takes me a long time to come up with something I can consider a complete image. There will eventually be some dialogue, but I like to keep talking to a minimum during emotional scenes. I'm just going to say that elven fireflies are like willowisps and create a lot of light that kind of trails behind them in a magic-y sort of way.

Hur. Onwards!

Firefly Page 1

This is the first page of a little interlude I'm working on, both as a way to get better at toning shit in photoshop, and as a way of jumping into comics again. There are a lot of things I'm not particularly happy with on this page, but I'll just leave it as it is for now.

I did learn some stuff in the process though, about how to create your own tones in photoshop, which is nice because I don't like to use brushes made by other people, unless they're really excellent ones that I wouldn't be able to make myself. =w=

I started with pencil and pen lines on comic manuscript paper, then scanned it in for some photoshop loving. After locking down the lines and setting the layer to multiply, I kind of flew at it by the seat of my pants, as I tend to do with most things. It makes for a lot of mistakes and frustration, but it was a good learning experience, and I am sure that my pages following this one will be a lot better. :D

Sketchbook Deco

I like to decorate my sketchbooks. :3 Not all of them are flouncy fabulous deco, but I felt like this one should use some of the deco bits that I make here and there as a hobby. I made the whip creams, biscuits, and the ice creams, and everything else is stuff I've been hoarding from Daiso, Kinokuniya, and Donki.

Maybe I'll take pictures of all my decorated sketchbooks from throughout the years and post them. Hm!

For anybody interested, this is generally what I look like.

Been on a roll drawing lately. Most of it is not really worth sharing because it's just thumbnails and such, but I sort of finished this thing.

I have this bad habit of trying to create decent finished works in sketchbooks. >_>;;; I have so many canvases and proper boards and whatnot hanging around, but naturally, most of my finished works end up in sketchbooks. Herp. I'm sort of okay with how this came out, but I am definitely NOT okay with how often Canta changes his clothes. Once I get to his chapter in the comic, it's going to be hell on my hands. There is a lot of mixed media going on here, and I am feeling a bit too lazy to list everything right now, haha.

Too much BL. XC

Yeah. I needed a new sketchbook like a hole in the head, BUT I BOUGHT ONE ANYWAY.

And I christened it with some naked making out with Lucifer and Canta. Obviously this is still very much a WIP.  Oh, also, this is the worst thing I have ever drawn.

Canta uses his shapeshifting know-how to mimic Gabriel. Not a very good idea unless you like getting on the bad side of a sorcerer with a napoleon complex.
