Oh gosh it's only been two weeks since my last update. Sorry about that! At least if you're following my Twitter or Tumblr or I know you on Facebook you've seen seeing comic pages at least. Frankly that's about all I've been doing. However since I'm done drawing for Chapter 1, I'm going to take a break from comic pages until a few days into March.
Since it is Friday and the comic has updated, here is a link to Page 7 and Page 8 (current). And as always, here's my portfolio blog with the clean pages.
And since it's not -too- spoiler-y, here's a little teaser for Page 9!
Yes, the first half of the blog title is related to Disney's latest feature release Big Hero 6. Again, I've been trying to wrap my head around drawing Tadashi. Here are my second and third attempts. I'm not going to say much about the scars other than they're not official. And I also didn't draw them that well. Still learning.
Page six of the webcomic is up! You can read it here! If you want to see the clean page without text, it can be found on my portfolio blog here.
Alas most of the art I did over the week was just comic pages, so I'm not going to post those. Another thing was a gift for a friend but that one's a secret. The only other thing I have to show is a practice doodle of Tadashi from Big Hero 6. I won't go into detail about the scars because it would be a huge spoiler.
Now for some bad news. Over a week ago my laptop's fan stopped working. Naturally it was the laptop with all my art programs and files. I attempted to fix the fan and the laptop promptly died completely. I still have all of my files because I took my hard drive out, but now I am waiting for my new laptop to arrive. Hopefully it will be here Monday and I can pick up where I left off on drawing page 6. If not, Page 6 is going to be delayed. So here's praying that it comes on time.
And finally, during the week I had the motivation to do some sketching, which turned into some form of Attack on Titan fanart - my favorite character Hanji as a man. Don't think about it too hard.
Though I technically don't have a weekly art goal anymore, I still want to do as many drawings as I can that aren't comic pages or covers. A lot of them will be concept art for the comic since it's a huge project, but there will also be things that aren't.
This week is for Rose With Thorns, however. It's the third of my main characters, whose name so far is just... Thatch. Possibly his last name. I don't even know. He made a few varying appearances in this blog last year but I think his design is finally nailed down.
It's important that I state that he is not Rose's love interest. She isn't going to have one. As it stands, no one is. I want to try a different route and emphasize platonic and familial relationships in this story.
Today my webcomic has officially launched! You can read it here.
Each week I will also post the corresponding page 'clean' (no text) on my portfolio blog here.
Don't worry, I'll include those in an update for this blog every week too. ;) Save you all some work.
I'll also post whatever else I sketch or draw on this blog at least once a week, so it won't fall into just being a promotion website. In fact, here's a couple sketches I did while warming up to work on the first four pages:
Attack on Titan fanart: Young Erwin Smith and his dad (who has no official name)
You haven't heard from me on this blog since New Year's Eve, so I'd say it's time you had a little update.
My hope is to officially publish the first page of the comic on Friday, January 9th. It will be a weekly production with one page per week (with a few exceptions). Since December 31st I've been working on these feverishly hoping to have four pages and some sort of cover art done by the publishing date so I'll be ahead. So far, so good.
Just to tease, here's some small screenshots of the first 3 pages, without their text. The third page teaser isn't quite done being drawn yet, but I decided I'd share anyway. It's alright if they're too small for you to see what's happening exactly. That was the idea. ;)
