Got those Christmas cards printed on matte cardstock …
Oh wow this look really nice. A perfect Christmas card if I do say so myself. :D
Eeee thank you! I’m happy they look nice seeing as I made them so damn fast.
Gonna email people who didn’t provide addresses/sketch requests tomorrow.
Donation “Thank You” card for Christmas. Finished this and the interior! Now I’m gonna go get some test prints done.
And the finished one.
Remember when I said I was gonna draw this for Halloween? And add more characters?
Well. I gave up finishing it… ENJOY.
Here’s the lineart if you wanna color it: http://i.imgur.com/QPlNg.jpg
Reblogging this because, after my bitter feelings about not finishing it subsided, I actually do like this now.
I should be working on stuff I’m obligated to work on but FUCK IT this is fun, I am having fun drawing this
stop trying to pry fun from my hands, responsible-adult-life
you’re not my dad
Top - Page 18 original
Bottom - Page 18 revised
Finished inking another 15 page update for Slipshine, and still felt wired, but not enough to draw… wired to do BUSY WORK.
I’ve seen how time consuming page revisions can be from watching other webcomickers prepping for book printing, so I figured I’d start as soon as I had time… even though I still have ~50-70 pages to draw before the first book can even get started. But hey, every little bit, right?
Most of the pages are going to be virtually untouched, save for small details and redoing word balloons. But Page 18 was at the top of my list… I hate this page. I hate it so much. So I stayed up a bit longer and tweaked it just enough to not hate it but not drastically redraw it — I want it to look consistent with the pages before and after.
Knowing my luck, I’m probably the only one who notices or cares about the differences. I’m okay with that.
Now for bed.
Doodled this as a warm up for some Slipshine pages, trying to pencil and ink something in under 5-10 minutes to set some pace. I work very slowly, but this turned out all right considering I was intentionally rushing it. At the same time this is practice for multiple things. It’s currently the end of August in the current chapter, and that means I get to draw my favorite kind of clothes soon … faaaalll and wwiinnttterr clooottthhheeeessssssss. This doodle I guess is from November, story-wise :U I like November (it are my birfday)
… okay so I just like drawing sweaters (love sweaters) and wanted to draw Claire doing something other than scowling or pouting. So, uh, napping. She naps a lot in her regular clothes, even her heels, because it’s usually on a lunch break or between errands. Also her design has been being tweaked, I don’t know if anyone’s noticed from the sketches and concepts I’ve posted but they’ve shifted a bit since she was last in the comic, and I wanted to draw her face doing different stuff with that in mind.
… i am gonna draw so many sweaters, you don’t understand. I am the overbearingly doting mother of comics and I’ve knitted everyone sweaters with cats on them.
Stream Results, More @littlefroggies fan art of Love me nice. I might finish this later, but i think thats enough of a love me nice love fest for now.
O-o-o-oh my, my heart’s a-flutter <3
Page is done! It’s 8am! Time for bed!
Line editing for this page is taking way longer than I expected. So many goofs :(
To lighten the mood, this is a gel-pen doodle I did at work tonight while thinking about a specific chapter. I originally was trying to draw a dress but I shaped her hips wrong and just said “screw it, I guess she’s wearing pants.”
It is taking me a million Years to pencil the simplest things and I don’t know why
Maybe I’m broken
Just Photoshop doodles of post-time-skip characters, now that I’m sitting down and writing tons of crap around that. They don’t look *that* different, it’s subtle things that change, so this isn’t exactly spoileriffic or anything. This is mostly for my own amusement.
