In Case You Missed It

Since everyone who follows this blog also follows me on other websites (I assume), you all probably saw the webcomic's update on the 16th. But just in case, here's page 2.

And while we're here, here's a few sketches I did over the week:

Armin Arlert from Attack on Titan as a get well gift for a friend.

Some role-play related sketches of Shiro the Dragon King

Personal re-design of Honey Lemon for Disney's Big Hero 6 movie. I was pretty disappointed that they basically took Rapunzel and gave her a tan and glasses.

What's His Face

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.

Dive, Dive! (Also Sketches)

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)

Blue Exorcist fanart: Shiemi being adorable

2015's Starter Pistol

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. ;)
