Good news everyone! My client apparently would be “much happier” with the actual digital file. I get to work on it a little longer to fine tune things I wasn’t happy with.
Of course I intend to take advantage of this. But no sooner did I begin than work became hectic. I mean REALLY busy, to the point of me having to be in three places at once.
Anyway, her face isn’t the challenge with this image; I’m okay with those. It’s the overall look. I’m still not sure who this character is. I haven’t decided how to present her or what way to tie in her background.
Baltimore comic-con is coming up and I gave myself a commission for a new friend. I don’t get to goof off either; I need to finish it by tomorrow! So I’m trying to work on it as much as possible.
Of course I have no idea what kind of background I’m going to give it. I usually go to a person’s Facebook page to put those personal little touches on their art. So hopefully she appreciates it.
Plus, adding the grey background is necessary when the character has any white on them. Otherwise you can end up leaving the area blank.
I’m nowhere near done! Shading, adding details and all while considering the background layout. Will I make it?…
A LOT of the time, I draw without being conscious of it. It’s something I’ve always done. You’d get a better answer if you asked me when I started breathing.
This year I’ve started some major personal projects. I’m hoping to get one published, so everything about it matters. Still, I can’t make the part that just draws shut down.
But I know how. All I have to do…is be happy.
When I’m happy, I can’t draw. It means that I tap into negative energy to do so. I’m trying to learn to create without doing so, but it’s hard when the emotions have to be at the surface.
Of course, I can’t wait. So I feed the beast whenever it howls, and hope to work on my projects in between. It could be worse, right?
