New Rising Comic – a start

Nearly forgot about this! The first post of New Rising Comic, and the related banner. I still haven’t made any more strips, but there are some planned out in a Mischief document. Made with Mischief and Clip Studio Paint (because I needed to show a friend how to use the program, but I’d never used …

Gaby WIP

My current WIP. I need to take a break because my chest hurts because I’m coughing too much. Ugh, being sick sucks big time. More practice doing poses and faces etc without actual references. She doesn’t look too twisted, so doing ok I think. Gaby Montegreau is the captain of the Pearl Star. She is …

Parla

This was meant to be an outline that I then coloured in, and it turned into a black-and-white drawing instead. Oh well. Parla, heavy use of a reference image I never kept the source of. PaintTool SAI + Wacom Intuos 5.

Mana

I’m trying to get Mana (and her sister Parla) from my story right. I drew her and Rahmen a while ago, and I used a reference photo where the girl was Asian. So, because I relied too heavily on the reference image, Mana turned out looking Asian. I decided I liked it, and since then …

WIP: Priya Golaniecki

Work In Progress: Priya Golaniecki, a character from my story. The jaguar is mostly done now, background to come, then touch-ups. Using ArtRage 4 and my Wacom Bamboo on a MacBook Air.

Hallie Dryden

A character from my story. Practicing doing faces and shading. I know the shading could be smoother especially on her forehead, but I can’t seem to find a blur tool in ArtRage and everything else I did just made it worse lol. Yep, I’m aware that she looks slightly cross-eyed. Not meant to be that …

Desiree and fox

Used a picture of Jennifer Lawrence as a reference, and I appear to be no good at making enough changes to a reference image to stop it looking like the original person lol. Oh well. Also used a reference image for the fox. So this was meant to be a character of mine, Desiree, and …

I am never leaving you

Rahmen and Nath, reunited after being parted. Yes, one of my previous pictures showed Rahmen looking all cozy with a woman, but it’s not what you think. You’ll just have to buy the book when I get around to publishing it. Rahm looks older than he’s meant to, but maybe I can say he looks …

It goes both ways love…

So after completely failing in the previous picture, I went and looked for references for a particular scene from my book I had in mind. I found this image here which was pretty much the pose I wanted, flipped it, and used it to get the proportions and pose right. Done in Photoshop CS6 for …

Completed: Parla & Alea

Completed project of Parla & Alea. Colouring of both ended up a lot paler than is meant to be, but I like it so much I may have to rewrite that in the story. Parla’s hair did not turn out as nice as I would have liked. Hair is not my strong suit. But I …

WIP: Parla and Alea

Further progress on this art. Everything is still a work in progress. Trying to figure out ways of making the cat face look better. I’ve already deviated from the original character description. It is meant to be a black panther, but I think I like it better this way. Tools: ArtRage Studio 3, Wacom Bamboo …

WIP: Rahmen and Wolf

Ok, so Rahmen’s alter ego doesn’t have a name. Must remedy that. I didn’t like the original sketch of this one quite as much so I decided to do a howling wolf instead of a wolf in profile. By description in the series Rahmen is meant to have quite a beak of a nose. I …

WIP: Parla and Alea

The initial sketch for Parla and Alea, in the same style as Mana and Ara. Again, using an old sketch as a reference and improving the proportions and cat face by using reference images for facial structure (for both). I’m currently just doing the outlines of the pictures in this series because I want them …

WIP: Mana and Ara

This is my next project. I wasn’t overly happy with the portrait of Mana I had done, and I came across this old sketch of mine. So I scanned it in, and now I’m doing a picture of how I originally pictured Mana. Updates to come. Using: ArtRage Studio 3, Wacom Bamboo Touch

Character portrait: Mana Sorkany

Mana Sorkany is a character in a story I have been writing since high school. Yes, she is meant to have white hair and silver eyes – it is a fantasy story, and she turns into a white panther. It’s a young adult fiction that I might finish one day. 🙂 Done in MyPaint. Used …
