I’m not dead, just going through major art block right now. First two images are just doodles and the last is more or less what I wanted. Finally have a design for the Reflex Armour in Helix huzzah!
WIP of the piece I just posted. I used a lot of lasso tool and a couple brushes that let me get crevices and streaks really well. :) Backgorund sky took me the least amount of time, but I have feels about clouds and it shows. I can paint them pretty fast.
- Form (silhouette of everything that ISN’T sky)
- Gradients of sky and FG
- Line Sketch and 10 min warmup
- Blockin of major forms using lasso tool
- Clipping mask detail on the major forms
- brush in lines
- Sponge on grit (if necessary)
- Shade and highlight
- Paintover final details, minor corrections

Second rough concept for pieces for the Scary Cute monster girl zine project!
This one’s kinda sad.
Here’s a little tip in how you can make light blonde hair appear “shiny” in B/W drawing or comic pages.
Use thin lines and make sure they follow the direction of the hair and/or head shape. Also have some space between the lines so they don’t appear too dark (like for example around her bangs).
Man I love inking comic pages. It’s a bit different from just doing lineart ya know? <3
Art tip - mostly for myself to remember, but maybe some of you can benefit from it, too:
Don’t go over-detailed. Don’t over-ZOOM.
When drawing digitally, like to work big, but that also tempts me to zoom in a million % and paint tiny details like eyelashes and whatnot, and when I zoom out to original size again, something looks just off. That’s because the detail I might know to be right anatomically is not how we actually see things from a distance. It often leaves me with a feeling of being less than homogenous, and the shadows tend to be off, too, because zoomed in I often do not consider the surroundings of a segment. And that leaves me with a lot of details thrown together that don’t make a connected picture.
See above: the first picture was too detailed. I zoomed out to #2 and changed some things, resulting in #3 original size. Still not happy, but better.
For the rest of the painting, I order myself a bit of a zoom-stop (which doesn’t say I won’t do it, just that I try not to go overboard) and hope for the best.
Still a WIP but I am proud
