I wanted to draw Myra today in some sketchy way, and fortunately, I found a panel in my comic that needed drawing and coincidentally in the perfect pose! I’m pretty happy with how this is going so far. I took the time to make a brush I like instead of just dealing with the defaults. I kind of feel like big doofus for not doing this already. It’s kind of like how when you discover how much better shooting in RAW is for photography, and you just feel stupid for trying to work with compressed JPEG photos all this time. Well, it’s the same. I have a much more natural and versatile brush I see myself using often.
Myra looks determined as all hell in this run. Too bad this is for 1 small panel where she’s supposed to be in the distance – got a bit carried away I guess? I think this comic episode would have been done long ago if I didn’t pick possibly the most labour-intensive style possible. Between my infrequent posts and the fact it’s been 1 year (yes) since I started drawing this, it must look like I am terribly lazy, can’t focus, and have a bad work ethic. Let me say: You have no idea how many hours and full days have gone into this already in between everything else I do… like housekeeping, working on film projects, my other art projects, redoing my website…generally having a life too. Hand this to another person, and it’d just never get finished, so….
That came out quite defensive…hmm.
