Apologies for the lapse in update – Covid and my respiratory system recently had words with one another, and as much as I would like to say that I won that argument, the collateral damage of that interaction was any meaningful art progress for about a week.
I’m moving double-time to catch up and wanted to share my progress. The big set piece that encompasses 3 pages I put on hold in order to complete the other pages in the story as well as the cover. Since all geometry and fine details are set in stone, filling in the detail isn’t my top priority at the moment. I should be finishing progress and replacing my placeholders layouts throughout the weekend (fingers crossed).
The colors will be somewhat painterly so i’m not putting in any obscene levels of detail at my pencil level.
Hope everyone digs! So excited to see this one fleshed out.
5/30 EDIT: these are my final pencils — I’m going straight to coloring as I’m going for a painterly look with this. I’ll post the cover again in the covers section and then the colors/inks will be in one in the colors section.
@ProjectThanatos I wanted to hold out on showing you everything but you’ve seen most of this >.<

How do you do the environments, @mikedoestheart ?

I’m afraid I may not be sure what you’re asking @buddyscalera – are you asking about my process for laying out the backgrounds?

Yes, @mikedoestheart – Is that by hand or by software? It is so tight that I was assuming you used software. If it’s by hand, that’s impressive.

I’m going fully digital this time using perspective tools in Clip Studio — I usually do it traditionally, scan and then use the guides — but I’m trying to fully embrace the digital methods. Thank you for the kind words! My challenge is being able to find that angle without spending many hours fiddling. I suppose that’s the catch when doing it digitally – so much time hitting the ‘undo’ button!
