Been working on art again

I got to hang out with the wonderful, and wonderfully talented, Elentori a while back.  I got to use her Cintiq for a bit.  When I finished the drawing and got the colors in, she did a good chunk of correcting and shading.  I finished it at home.

This was the result:

The other night I did a spontaneous stream that went for about 3 hours.  I took a small break about 2/3 of the way through to walk and make tea.  I drew another OC, Reya.  I’m going to off-screen or in another stream do corrections and finish it up.

She’s already red-lined.  Well, green-lined in this case.

I’m hoping to keep this going, especially with what I plan to get for my tax return.  😉

If I can finally get around to doing it, I will also finally get started on ‘So We’re Making a Comic! – Trying to get A(head)’!  My writer for ‘Syrens’ and myself have been discussing things we can do with the story to give it more character.  He’s suggesting a steampunk world.  It would change the tone I think, but I think a cannon AU would be fun instead.

Practiced on something

I think I may have rushed this, or it’s good it took me so little time.  This spontaneous sketch has become what the next images will show.

I should really take more progress/process shots…

CyberBlue cellshade

Ta-da!  A cell shaded work!  This almost looks like it belongs in Maison Ikkoku or Bubblegum Crisis or something.  xD  I was thinking of hanging on to the line art for whenever I get to this girl’s story in the whatever-I-feel-like sequel to SWMaC!

Onward to the commission!
