Hey all! It's been a while, but I'm pretty pleased with how art's been going this year. Been focusing a lot more on traditional stuff.

Inkwork has been a blast:

But I've also still been working on my watercolors. Having a color commission option at the table has proved to be an important move.

I also tried my hand at a little music-video animatic earlier this year: here's a short clip:

You can watch the rest of it over here, it's just shy of 40 seconds: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9BVnPa_q9rU I'd love to work on more, but the trial for the program I was using expired. I've been trying to also use other free ones, but they either don't sync properly with the music, or don't sync with the music at all. I messed around with a short dialogue animation in one of the programs that didn't sync: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YVbv9qUmKo8 And I'm sure if I wanted to be an animator, it would be time to double down on it, sync be damned. But I just want to do it as a hobby. So I'm probably gonna wait until the shareware programs are a little bit better.

And I've been feeling a lot better about my character design work this year:

Comics continue to fall under the eternal struggle: Do I work to make them more complex and look better, or do I work to get them out at a faster rate? I always try for both and worry that I always fail at both.

Anyway, there's a big ol roundup! Looking back on it, I think I need to get back in the swing of working digitally, and on bigger pieces. I've been struggling to make noew prints for the past year and a half, and that needs to stop. Also, when my computer crashed, I lost all my Hot Fuzz screenshots, so I stopped work on that project. That was really good practice, though. I need to start again.

Gonna do a quick grab bag, because procrastination is easy and fun! One character design to start us off, then everyone else under the cuts!

Watercolors!

And I'm doing a lot of composition practice. This is my life now. I want everything to have a sexy thumbnail by the end of the year.
