based on a throw away line in crash 4 that i wanted to run with.
yeah i'm sorry i kept this a secret and spent time on it when i have so much else that needs doing :(

ok i went a bit over board playing with the line work but it does look good, just another bit of fan art for rabbi tom
finally got back to finishing off the line work for this one. i plan to do some color studies digitally then print it out for traditional work
i was going to buy some French curves from the art store today because my old ones from college broke but fortunately my dad still had his from his engineering days so now i have a full set.
mar still needs work on his color because his armor is normally a lot darker
since i am not going to get the folio done today i decided to practice with copics and inks
well this was just going to be a quick study because i wanted an excuse to work with traditional mediums with out the stress of "gotta be publishable" but it ended up taking half the day....but i do like the inky look of it and later i will start coloring
what is 6 brass stars?
orcs, rat women, moth sorceress, gobo arachnid riders, and undead world ending hordes that one lone, broke, merchant must some how survive...with plenty or smut
i work on this in the morning to help get my day started
did a bit more polish on this one going to need to redo her hand because now i can see its angle is odd
AC is finally fixed so i was able to get back to work drawing some censorsheiks
since censorshiek is probably responsible for about 20% of my traffic i am trying to make her more "fun" with each folio
the AC went out in my place so we spent all day fixing it, but i did manage to get a couple of sketches worked on when we took breaks
cleaned up the lines
now all the base colors are down and ready for final polish...though that part takes the longest
line work done
PEGUS BOOM! featuring everyones favorite super censor ROCKETSHEIK!
yeaaay got it done! now on to the next set
ok so my net is Back! it came back to full speed about 5 mins before i normally start posting so that was good.
there was still some color fixings i need to do but with such a slow net i couldn't send images to my friend to help me with things i missed. tomorrow morning i will do the final fixings then publish both here and gumroad
my net is really spotty today. i don't know if i will be able to post anything since i am down to 0.3 Mbps.
hopefully Tmoblie will fix whatever is going on with their network, but i don't know
NUUUUUUU i didn't finish it ...oh well gotta keep at it
ooooh so close to being done. just need a biiiit more polish then i can add the textures, work the contrast a touch and add the last little textures.
now i wonder if i should give her that rainbow hair look or just keep it this monochomtic. let me know what you think
i hope i spelled her name right this time. i am terrible with names
line work done now to get the color started. i have scribbles of censorsheik but i will need to make them more legible before posting
finished the lone work now to get the color done. last will be a "x-ray" image
started the final painting for the first "bee have" folio. still not sure what title i will end with but i decided i was procrastinating too much so i printed several images full sized and started transferring them to watercolor paper. i plan to make the censorsheiks in traditional mediums too
because traditional mediums have no "undo" button i've been trying to figure out my pallet before jumping into the full sized image. because the bee girl is yellow, or even orange i decided to go with a complementary coloc scheme, blue and orange. using some warm browns to add shadows
the first image was my first attempt. i am trying to be loose and rough so i don't stress myself out on filling in the color just right, the next i tried refining the pallet of the two characters, third was focusing on just the lighting and the final i was trying to get the guy's skin color down as i felt the first was too grey and the second too "florescent"
only got to finish 2 line works for Dance of the serpent . after i am done posting i will work on some more traditional mediums it still feels more like "goofing off" rather then actual "work" because i am not all that comfortable with it still
it took most the day but all the line work is done. i have a few more things to post
lines almost done
(sings) the boobs are back and there's gnna be trou-ble (sings)
just cleaning up the lines and adding in the details
there we go. Kota and bruce folio rendered out. next 3d project will be to set up the environments for the next 5 folios
all the base colors are down and smoothed out a bit, now i can merge the line work with the color and finish off the folio
i'm starting the censorshieks WAY earlier then normal now. i have always felt rushed when i do them and i don't like that feeling of slight panic when trying to finish a bunch of drawings in order to be "on time"
it also made them feel "tacked on" more then "part of the process"
first draft of line work done
"so you like em 'fluffy' "?
alright alrighty finished the censorsheiks and got this puppy ready. i will keep working on the comics after i spread the work load of my folios a bit more
philophana gets a job offer, but being a robot stunt double is NOT what she had in mind.
now it's time to get feedback from simone for any changes before i move on to more polish
forgot to make a poll the other day. sorry
i have been going through a lot of my old sketches for comics and thinking to myself "oooh i can go back and finish that" (most of them and just super rough sketches) but i need to finish a good back log of folios first.
each one of these folios will be done, but you all decide on what order they get done
and the ones that say they are the folio version not the comic version, like "peak wulf" they will just be the folio version but i will use the folio version to help me make the environments and characters for the comic version
yeah i decided to take the 8 folio images i made for "peak wulf" and publish them as a folio instead of tacking them on the end of the comic.
that way i will have another folio as a buffer to help spread out the workload some more.
i remember trying to make a big set of folios a long time ago. i gave up because i was very insecure with my process, using 3d and all that, but now especially since i have been going through my older works i finding that they are really not bad at all
i hope that doesn't come across as arrogant, i just mean i feel more comfortable with my drawing methods and won't be just dropping everything like i have in the past
just tightening up line work and polishing up the shadows
there is only one phase going on in his head "oh my god!"
i sent the day setting up the environments for the last two folios that were voted on. the 4 armed naga and kota's folios.
i had a lot of stuff to set up, importing and arranging props. THEN i found realized i did not have a texture for my 4 armed naga, so i went online to find some color ideas and i settled on a king cobra pattern. after that i rendered out the naga folio and next i will render out Kota and bruce. i don't think i will be able to render out the full folio tonight but i will try
tomorrow i will put up another poll for the next 5 or so ideas i have, again just with characters i have ready to set. once i am a few months ahead in folios i will have a few more character ready and can start putting them into the polls
once again our unlikely warrior couple on another one of their sultry escapades
that is the face of a man regretting his life choice
When DelNala wants her belly rubbed she will pester Marcus until she gets all she wants
yeah yeah bad punz
i tend to work with the traditional mediums just after i get up and after i finish my daily postings mainly because it still takes a lot of time but not quite up to the quality or confidence of a folio or commission image. so it feels less like work and more like playing around right now.
also after my work day i brush up on my color theory so i can be more deliberate and organized with my color choices, as i am still a bit too chaotic
now for censorsheik
because patreon is being slow right now i uploaded the update to my drop box
cleaned up the line work a bit and made her head smaller
these three are about 90% done
today was a weird day, my internet broke and it took several hours to get it fixed, so i found i rely a lot on youtube to make "background noise" to help me focus on my work. when working if i don't have some stuff to listen to in the back ground my mind starts thinking about all the other projects i want to get done.
as a side note i got a large shipment of watercolor paper so i can do a lot more traditional drawings
added the final touches of simone's latest character (woot)
adding in some more flats
and there we go. the rest of THIS folio now has the base line work done
now i need to make the environments for the last 2 folios that were voted on. kota and the 4 armed naga
it took most the morning but i finished the base model for my rodent girls
i still want to do oil and acrylic paints so i set up a plan on how in my own warped way.
i transferred these onto watercolor paper and my first step will be to apply my colors this way
image 1: copic
image 2: copic then colored pencil
image 3: copic, pencil, gouache
image 4: copic, pencil gouache/watercolor and acrylic on top
then i will tranfer the same kind of line image to on of my canvas boards and try the same process but after the acrylic step is done i will finish it off with oils.
added in the first set of horns. and i started refining the characters in sections. redoing the line work to have more "weight" in relationship to my light source and refining my shadows and highlights.
changed her interior colors and added some extra shadows. i don't want to cover up the pencil work or compete with it by using too many shadows and highlights
went through a first draft of the linework for this folio. just a rough scribble. i got a few things done today along with this so i feel i had a good work day
ok stiiiiilll not quite fast enough to do a full painted folio in 3 days, but i would rather it look good in the end so i am going to take a bit more time on this.
moving forward i will adjust my strategy a bit. i'm going to spread out the other folios a bit more. tomorrow i will mostly be working on the commissions i have but i will also work on the line work for the "blue pegasus not so little kinda pony lady" and do a bit of (just an hour per day) setting up the last 2 folio ideas everyone voted on. kota with bruce and a 4 armed naga lady.
after those folios are mostly done i will set up another voting poll
darn didn't finish it today
well i got the base colors down
im speeding through the line work to try to get to the painting section and hopefully get the whole thing done by tomorrow
i am testing out some colors form my trade with rabbi-tom. this first version is just to get an idea how they will look in normal day light, next i will try different lightings
one of the folios i "abandoned" a while ago, i have the line work all done but i was not happy with the colors. now i will use it as an excuse to work more with copics and gouache (and maybe some colored pencils thrown in for texture)
i will need to order a bunch of watercolor paper soon.
right now it is a bit too bright so i will slowly add in some cooler shadows
last night i organized all my copic markers so i can do some color studies this morning. i love the way copic works and i was planning to paint some gouache on this but maybe i will tranfer the image t a new piece of paper and start again with some color variations
sincce i am going to need to start the next folio Saturday, i decided to render out 3 of the 5 folios
delnala and marcus, and our "not so little" Pegasus, because those are neck in neck and i had a clear idea for delnala and the pegasus one would just be in the clouds so her back grounds are easy
i finished rendering Azula's folio because i had part of it done already and i really like how the first one ended up looking
depending on the vote i will either start on delnala or the pegasus but i will once again have a back log of some folios
whew busy day. i finished the base textures and a rough rig for my new triceratops girl and the rest of my copic order came in so i organized them by color and numbers. i now have the full set of copics so i will be doing a lot more color studies in traditional medium mixing copics, gouache, watercolor and watercolor pencils.
also i almost finished the base model for my rodent girl too. i will be using her as a base for rats mice and any other animal with similar features
don't want to forget bringing back the classics
i added in the general areas for shadows and highlights just roughly right now. i have an experimental idea that i think will look really good in the end
pencils done, scanned her back in and added her base colors, after help from Simone to get the colors he wanted specifically.
i don't want to do too much color rendering because it will compete with the textures of the traditional medium so once her colors get final approval i will do just a touch more color shadows and highlights
i will focus on characters i already have rigged or at least can add a quick new rig to an old character.
depending on what gets the most votes the fastest, i may need to start with the environment early
ok. i will NOT be able to get a new folio done by Wednesday so i will move the next folio to start Saturday so i can publish it Monday. i don't want to burn out right as i restart the weekly folios.
so tomorrow i will set up a poll were you all can vote on the next folio to be made. i'm going to limit it to models i already have ready for rendering, until i can finish new anthro ladies to add to the list
"who is this 'Livingston' I presume i need to find? is it Him? is it you?"
Censhi may never know
so close....so very close to having this folio done today. the uncensored images were finished this morning (though it took until noon) and i spent the rest of the day coming up with and sketching in censhi, i won't polish up the line work any more because i plan to put the line and color all on one layer like i did for the folio proper.
it's going to be a late night
moving forward i plan to make Monday through Wednesday "folio" days and on wednesday i will start opening up voting for the next folio character. i will be focusing on characters i already have models for at first, to give me time in the rest of the week to finish off the figures i started
so close. i got 5 done. though there are a few more touch ups to do on the finished ones. i will keep working on this folio until i turn in. if this folio is successful then i will dedicate Monday to Wednesday (hopefully just Monday Tuesday) as "folio days" so i can get a new one out once a week and still have the rest of the week to work on 3d, commission, comics etc
finished all the renders today so i could go right into painting. i wanted to see just how much i could get done in a day with a super trimmed down drawing process. if i am lucky i can get a full folio, censorsheik and all, done in 1 to 3 days, though i am shooting for 2
added some battle damage. once simone approves her design i will go back and finish polishing the image.
Momo Hachimitsu was the first to greet the new comer from the far off land. As he showed her around his ship she shared with him her appreciation of his company
and noe all floofed up
the top one is 90% done and the other 3 have just been started. i could paint over the top one a bit more to make it look like my folios more so, but let me know what you all think.
the painting/render part is all done on one layer so it went by super fast.
not content with just a single romp in the "hay" our dragoness goddess decides to retake her knightly lover again
a while ago i was asked by one of you (sorry i forgot who at this moment) if i could do a pure 3d folio. now i finally got around to starting it. this si just a test render, i probably will still do some paint over in the end to punch up colors and add some elements like fur and hair.
so lets see how this experiment turns out
they got waterlogged
copic gouache and watercolor on watercolor paper. this image is only 4 inches tall. i really like the way copic markers feel and the color range i can get
aaaaand i forgot to finish her horn layers
an interesting day today. i was dreading the idea of transferring the digital sketch to paper because my normal method was to print out the image on computer paper and cover the back with graphite and then trace over the lines while the paper i wanted to transfer too was underneath my printout. it is a long and tedious process and leaves a lot of groves in the paper because of how hard i need to press.
then i remembered "light boards" .....and i face palmed for about an hour.
with my dads help we fixed up my grandads old light board (he was an engineer and a part time cartoonist) and the art desk/stand my dad had made for it (in college he was also a part time cartoonist)
with a light board it was a lot easier to transfer the image to a new paper because the back light lets you see through your paper and you can lightly trace the lines you want
now that this light shade is done the last step will be to go back over with some dark pencils and really push the contrast
just doing final fixings and polishing the linework before i transfer it to either bristol board or my marker paper. i think marker paper would be best since i already tested it with my Mar pencil study
i thought i should do some studies with traditional medium with everyone's favorite censor bug, Censorsheik. and like a "big brain" i first tried going "BIG" ...but again i showed myself i should not jump into the deep end of the pool before i know how to "paddle" and so i did the next much smaller color study. i will be doing a lot more of her and taking a bunch on my unfinished (but line work IS finished) folios and do color studies for them too.
It is said that in the blue teeth mountains there resides a spiritual guide who will impart her wisdom for a price.....and it is a price worth paying
so i tried using less types of mediums with the next 5 skulls. 4 are just copic and pens and the last is colored pencils from a set i found that was probably 15 years old, the final skull i will use my newer watercolor pencils to see how they compare
once her design is approved then i can refine her line work enough to transfer her to paper for pencil work
well i tried doing too much too quickly with this painting. i got overconfident with my skull studies and tried to jump into a lot of untested waters (again)
i need to do more little studies like the skulls but of more various items and figures
ok there we go that is all the line work done...except for a cover
now i can get back to the coloring
well here's a blast from the past. our all time favorite "rage sex" couple https://www.dropbox.com/sh/rggvang66z89fzg/AAAhHQWEM7sMK-8RGv4v7cGEa?dl=0
"now i'm just going to stand here and water my lawn for the next week or two".....if anyone knows the game reference let me know ;) extra points if you know the youtuber who reviewed the game (one of his earliest vids)
starting another commission for Simone. once i have the line work down the way he wants then i will print it out and do a pencil overlay. once that is done i will scan it back into photoshop and add some digital color. the end result should look pretty cool
there we go. Angel's commission (the drawing part) has been started there are a few corrections needed and i still need to add in the tongue and textures on her model
just expanding the character studies with some quick sketches
the censorshiek parts are a bit out of order right now. i just want to get them all at least started so i don't procrastinate on them when i get the colors down
every few year the people of the valley must "sacrifice" one of their best young warriors to the Goddess of the Storms. he always comes back quite satisfied
scruff that rump
i have an idea for a comic called "night of the jackalopes" that i wanted a really Toontastic style for. so i took one of the very simple and stylized figures i have in my files and rigged it with a "stretchy bone" skeleton. basically a simplified version of the tail rig on my naga characters. i am hoping this new style of rig will help me keep the elastic style of cartoonish character but maintain consistent volumes and proportions
i'm keeping the line work a bit rougher since i plan to paint the color and final line work all on one layer like i did for the character rotations for Simone
you know every couple week i should give myself at least a half day off so i can get away from drawing for at least a few hours. because when i come back i am able to do more
using digital swatches of my copic makers, i did a color study to reference from as i start painting
i spent most the day celebrating my sister's birthday so not too much to post today but i do feel refreshed
everyones favorite blind battle bun bun https://www.dropbox.com/sh/hybawy3t0gfzzpw/AADOX3qDiF6j3HrviSp-CN7Ea?dl=0
i'm going to print this out and paint over it like the skulls i posted yesterday. next i will use this blend scene as a base for that full 3d folio i promised. i am going to test rendering in both Cycles and Eevee to see which gives the best finished product....i think it will probably be cycles but that is going to take a lot longer to render.
yes the commission set is done now i can gather up all the images to send off to Simone
almost done. just need to finish off her rotation and then i can send the whole thing to Simone
ok. i will keep doing studies like this because it is fun and scans decently but now i can start making folios.
oooh boy there were a few problems with this one. not super difficult, just tedious to fix. there were a few holes in her geometry that i had to fix and some vertices that were out of place but i managed to patch them all up and re rig the whole model adding teeth and eyes....and i forgot to give her a tongue well that is next along with the weight clean up
the only problem is she smells like pond water now
my copic markers and watercolor pencils came in today and i started making color swatches. i must say i really like both mediums.
after the swatches i will study how well they mix together. once i am confident in the mediums i will make some folios with all my mediums (that can be used together)
everyone's favorite kitty is back
darn almost had them all done today
these pages are ready for color
one of my supporters, Angel, asked for a commission....aaaaand after a few memories popped up i realized i never finished this particular 3d commission. very embarrassing. so i will finish it and give him a few sketches since i messed up.
the rig will be the easiest part to finish since i just need to use my naga models for the base rig. the texture might take a while since i need to first make sure her UV maps are good and fix them if need be, and she is a BIG model, thanks to her tail.
but at least her tail (and nexk) will be a breeze to pose in the end
i found a bunch of stylized base meshes in my folders. they had i nice simple cartoony proportions to them so i rigged one up to see what i could draw over it. these will be great for my imitation "Darkest dungeon" style as is but i need to push my line work if i want to get anything more cartoony
it's going to be interesting when i start transferring this to paper
i like the color set on this one
Ah yes the damsel who started it all. this is actually a remake of the very first folio....not sure what i will do with the first one....might just add it to this one once i get up there
im sorry bad joke i know. just going to finish all the expressions and rotations. then i can organize everything up into a nice package and send it off to Simone
now all that is left will be censorsheik and refinement
it will be slow going but if i never start Chronicles of Mar i will die before his story gets told. i know enough about mixing 2d and 3d skills to get everything to look the way i want it to and the color confidence to not have to rely on textures. i am even thinking about coloring it traditionally. i will only work the pages up to this sketch level so it will be easier to change when i get feedback.
also this will let me get out a page at least every other day without putting pressure on my other projects as all of Mar's stories have no smut in them
that's some tall learning there
and that is a the illustrations for Khan's character sheet now i need to finish off Yu's sheet.
then i go back to Philophana's comic and sketch out all the pages first before going back to the color and other refinements
on to the gouache stage
when you tell her to sit...be carful where you are in relation to her
she wants more then fish as a reward for her "performance"
ok that is all the expressions done, just need to finish inking and coloring the rotation and i can move on to the next character
the base of the tail is the key
bring back another folio https://www.dropbox.com/sh/bw3pd77r6u0ytnh/AABl4EIshid2iEa5ly0tPFFda?dl=0
i'm losing a bit of the deeper hues in the pink areas. that may be due to the medium scan speed, once i have the image done i will really focus on getting those colors just right
this whole scene is just for humor sake....let me know if you think it is actually funny, or just too cringy to keep
gotta taste that red velvet. re uploading another old folio i have about 30 more from 2016 then i need to go through my older ones.....that i did not organize ......oh boy
and then there will be the ones from the beginning....ooooooh boy. now to be honest most of the REALLY old ones i don't think are good enough to sell, buuuut that does not mean i can use them as a means to entertain both patreon members and possible new ones.
by drip feeding the REALLY old stuff and encouraging everyone to have a laugh i can get the entire daily doe back up after lulu terminated my store and incentivize people to come see the entire catalog.
let me know what you all think
whew! almost half way done with the expressions for khan
a while ago i asked rabbi-tom for a commission. for him to draw Mar and Shesheik how they "inspired" him. he offered to just give it to me instead but we agreed on an art trade in the end. https://www.furaffinity.net/view/36445373/
i finally knuckled down to start my part of the trade and once i have the sketch done i will transfer it to some comic book Bristol board (i have found an un-opened pack from my college years) and then paint it in water color and gouache (i really want to use those supplies more )
unfortunately the set up took all day. and if you know rabbi-tom please don't show him the sketch yet because i want to show it only when it's done ;)
spank that monkey
so her original design is white fur with reddish brown body....oops.
i will keep going with the golden monkey look because i can always redo it on a new piece of watercolor paper and the practice will be good.
i'm using sai watercolor brushes plus "genuine crafts" watercolor brushes for the bulk of the colors, then i will paint over with gouache
time to get dry after being wet
now that i transferred the line work to water color paper (and did a couple edits)
i am wondering if i should ink some of the lines or not. i will start watching some water color videos to get a better idea of how i want the end product to look. i may end up re doing this a few times as practice
and now i can refine the commission set
ok so i did spend about an hour going through all my boxes from collage to see what art supplies i still kept...turns out quite a lot but no colored pencils...think i gave them to my sister
tomorrow i will transfer that monkey butt girl to some watercolor paper and start playing around with the gouache and water colors i have
well one of those days where you sit down and in 10 mins some one calls for you to come help them.
griping aside i did get a few things done
this is going to be an odd format for a comic so i wonder how it will be received
just tweaking bone placement and removing some bones that seem to cause more posing problems then solve them
i know Simone asked me to do just a front and back but this just looks way better
and the color is really good. when i compared the watercolor sketch side by side with the scan they looked nearly identical.
so now i can stop procrastinating on doing more traditional mediums as i can scan stuff in now
though with oils i will need to set up a photo booth or something since oils take so long to dry i can't put them on the glass of the scanner
if you are confused at to what is going on right now. they fall into a lake and she shakes her self dry.
working with these models has again made me realize i need more corrections i need to change the head controls by removing that "point at" control i have for their faces and fix their butts and shoulders again.
my first showing of "red Velvet" the vixen
When you and your adverting partner settle down after a long day of traveling, you decide to do a little "training" before you turn in for the night. AND WATCH OUT Censorsheik...you'll get your bum burned
yaaay we gotsa new one at last
ok that is the last of the expressions sketched out. now i can start on the rotations
yeah its a bug hunt....the best kind of bug hunt
moon moon monkey
the folio is done i just need to put in the copy wright and make the title.
word to the wise....when work on re-tarping the roof of an RV....don't do it at noon in 80 F degree heat with high humidity, wait for a cooler day or do it in the early morning before the sun is really high. so i did not get much other work done
gotta try to catch up tomorrow
well it looks like things have gotten a little out of hand here.
so many old folios to bring back. there are some much older folios that i am wondering if i even should re-post. at least maybe not on gumroad.
i am talking about the earliest of folios.
ok her line work is now done. time to color her
daaaaw kitty want a booby wub
i will see myself out now
more buggy update. just gotta refine them lines
been a while since we have seen this couple huh?
the life of a Dyson Steel Kin is hard. so whenever Liu and Arthur have some "down time" they often just "bugg" around
there are probably a few more touch ups i need to do after i finish censorsheik but the folio is practically done
almost done with this folio. i pretty much finished the smut part today and got to start the censorsheik part. i should be able to finish this tomorrow
i keep forgetting about this folio. well i worked on it all day and now it is almost done
added some simple colors to start
spent most the day sketching out expressions
having found a natural water park, our splish splashy couple take a break from their frolicking......to do some more frolicking down the natural rock water slides and jump off the high dive cliffs
when i was working on "pouncing" i went and bought a bunch of daz plant models that were on super sale (some up to 80% off) but i had already finished the back grounds for that comic and redoing them would have been a bit of a waste just as an excuse to use some new toys.
also i realized why i am so much slower then i use to be with drawings...i use to never do more then the bare minimum for the backgrounds
anyway time to get back to normal work
two folios re-uploaded today, because i missed yesterday
the white queen's forest
now i am almost done with the folio part i can go finish the comic part. i am on the fence whether i should bundle this with the comic or have it as its own separate folio. on the one hand its two product to promote on the other, more value to the customer.
i am probably just going to add this folio to the end of peak wulf as a bonus
so the new sale tax rules are coming into effect on june 1st. i have looked through the setting i can do on my end but based on what i read up on, leaving the settings as they are now is best
once i get all these base colors down i need to brighten everything up and make the back ground mountains more "unified" with the rest of the images
the fire is blazing, the tables are set with meats, fruits and mead. all that is needed is to wait for the guests to arrive. but these two seem to have found a way to pass the time until then
3 naga one update: the only thing for the rigging that needed updating was really just the tail and i found a tutorial on youtube that seemed pretty good. it took all day to get it right and when i tried the rig out.....it was a mess
so i deleted the tail mess and redid it with my own idea....took 20 mins and works SO much better
another folio from "the vault" looking at this one makes me want to do another folio or comic but go full cartoon and not use any 3d. trying to make it closer to the cartoon it was inspired by
just trying to capitalize on the apparent xcom popularity with snekky sneks....so i guess it's not actually random then
going through all these old folios i keep thinking "oh i can make THIS into a comic now!" the problem is that such a thing will take time AND i need to finish the comics i have on my plate right NOW before i pile on anything else
more floofy folio work. i think i will just add this to the tail end of the comic. since the story format is already kinda weird
another blast from the past reuploaded https://www.dropbox.com/sh/n4cc516r83jxlls/AACdLuKBYQQIDhXnySl3NbZra?dl=0
broke out some digital "oil" brushes and played around to try and get a traditional feel
did a whole bunch of them today
another oldie brought back....one day i need to do the comic idea i have for this where "the salty acorn" attacks the "golden sail"
i had an idea yesterday, to see about transfering the weights from a daz figure to peak wulf, because i felt that daz would have better weights...turns out for THIS model that is not the case.
so i did a bunch more tests on her problem areas, mostly her hips and face and i think i have come up with a better solution
taking Simone's advice i used shape keys on her face (namely her eye lids) and i changed my approach on her nether regions. instead of using the auto weight system to add in all the weights for each genitalia bone, i turned them "off" for the auto weight pass then added the weights in manually. coupled with a shape key has produced better results.
getting back to the comic "peak wulf" i can test this update and see where i may need to make changes. if i am satisfied that i cannot improve the basic rig outside of shape keys, then i will move into the next step of bone driven shape keys and more custom bone shapes.
i have also been looking up animation tutorials again hopefully now i can understand them better
sorry i had to do it
uploaded another old folio https://www.dropbox.com/sh/zfcxzucvfuotkr7/AAA-CpDeTe5G043DFE9pij1-a?dl=0
a funky monkey with her chunk space hunky
re uploaded another old folio. i hope now that i am not doing a "dropbox link" for the gumroad version people will be happier with their purchases and gumroad doesn't change their rules on me
i wanted to do just a whole bunch of sketches today but unfortunately, real life issues made it near impossible to do any work today.
get out ye old squeaker. once i am done with this level of refinement i will go back and polish up the colors and environments
all this build up for a porn
sorry i have not been posting as much as i normally do. been feeling a bit drained for the past few days. give me a few more days and i should be back to peak production
a study of the business woman who owns the android Ylva https://www.furaffinity.net/view/36333869/ part of Simone's next commission....i need to fix her shoulders they look a little small
the rock broke
Mina's Mechanic now has his first study done
i edited and updated her rig. i hope this version will be easier to use. aside from her pussy i have not made any corrective morphs yet
as i have been making this comic i been putting both my riggings through their paces and seen a lot of things that need fixing. i think my biggest problem is making the rig too complex in certain areas like the face and hips. when i update it next i will try to simplify those areas
today my dad and i celebrated our birthdays together and early so most of the day was goofing off. i did manage to get off my lazy butt and start on Simone's next commission, a pair of character sheets of Mina's Mechanic and the business woman who owns the android Ylvan.
i started with a digital pencil study so i could focus on form only....and because it was fun
next we will be working on some character sheets
sharing body heat
more panels for peak wulf. be prepared for a special appearance from censorsheik in a few more pages
just a few more touch ups and then this commission will be done
i tried out a pencil drawing....i really need to get a good scanner
the problem is, the one i want is (Epson expression line) starts at 2k and goes up to 4k and i am not sure i am going to do enough traditional medium to justify that cost (the scanner has a scan area of 11" by 17")
now it could be a "chicken and egg" type argument. where i don't do enough traditional mediums to justify buying a scanner because i don't have a scanner to help justify spending more time on traditional mediums.
i know Mustek has a much cheaper A3 sized scanner but the reviews i have seen on all their products have not been good
i forgot about this folio. best finish polishing it up too
more panel work for peak wulf
looks like patreon is updating their sales tax rules starting july 1. i will see what i can do on my end to minimize any impact it would have on everyone subscribed to me but i can't do anything until the end of may when they promise to give creators some advance tax options.
i don't know what that will entail but i am hoping i can take some of that burden onto myself if possible
its a bit cathartic doing folios like this again. tomorrow i will get to the actual comic and maybe do some more refinement on both their rigs. when i get about mid way through this comic i will open up a new pole to vote on the next one
decided to do some more test images of our "peak wulf" couple. then i thought, what the heck, lets make a folio of it.
if i hadn't let myself get distracted and procrastinate today i might have almost finished it
deep within the savage jungle the mighty queen stalks her prey. can our brave adventurer survive this ferocious encounter?
i am still tweaking her rig but she is now usable for the comic and i wanted to do some advertisement images to keep people interested in new content
an update to peak wulf model and adding a quick rig to her play thing
whew. that took longer then expected. tomorrow i will set up the final version and get to "peak wulf"
the floofy woolfy is almost done....at least to the point where i can use her for the next comic. so now i need to work on the other characters who will show up
now for censorsheik
started rigging peak wulf.
getting close to having "pouncing" done and "Bald space monkeys" has only a couple more advertisement pages to post on my other sites. so i need to get some working figures done
i am much happier with the way these models are turning out then i ever have before
alright! got the hip area to work correctly with all them drivers. still need to tweak the wrist driver as it is doing weird things when i rotate it. but the most difficult part to rig now works
darn them boulders
oh boy everytime think i am almost done i step back and see...."no no no you have a long way to go "
i needed a day break from drawing so i spent today getting my bunnz closer to finished. and she is so very close!!!
the biggest challenge is her hips. everything else is a hundred times easier in comparison
though i am getting closer i think it will take at least a few more full days before i can move on from her hips
got dem bunny boobs rigged. i did the same thing i did with her lips. i plan to use the same kind of set up for her hips but that will still be a major challenge
yes finally all the base colors are down. now i need to add the flair and censorsheik
getting the color done
the rest of the day was spent trying to figure out the best way to do advance rigging.
what kind of bones to use, when to use shape keys, how to set up my drivers etc. it's where i always hit the wall, trying to figure it out.
but i have made some progress.
i got the lips to work how i want them to, i have a better understanding on how to get shape keys to work and i have some rudimentary drivers work. the end goal is to have the most naturalistic movement with the minimal amount of tools so anyone can use it will just a few pointers
my morning was spent detailing Simone's clockwork moth. next i can add the shadows and highlights
been steadily putting down the base colors. i am going to keep things relatively simple, like an old traditional comic
yeah i am going to try and make a custom model of her again. with how well the "peak wulf" girl was going and i found some cool toon rigging tutorials for blender i really wanted to make a really good custom figure for her
the last page is inked now i am putting in the censorsheiks and coloring
it looks like"peak wulf" will be the winner by a long shot so i spent most the day building her model.
once she is given her rudimentary rig i will put her up as a reward on the 3d wip levels and when she is done (along with any other characters i need to make for this story) she will be up as a reward on the finished 3d.
this way i will be able to cover all my reward levels each project
i am almost done with the inking. i hope to get the rest done tonight so i can start coloring and adding in the censorsheiks
i got some new toys from daz and i've been wanting to try something with them. this took all day because i was never quite satisfied with the pose and layout. then the lighting took a while to get right. ironically the rendering was the fasted part of the process.
it's now ready to paint
just one page today. i needed a break from inking to refresh my brain so i worked on another project
getting into the inking stage .
after i am done with "Pouncing" i have quite a few comic ideas i would want to work on
Simone suggested that i make a poll since some of the comic i would like to work on are not porn
spent the whole day rigging. using Odette and what i have learned from royal skies LLC i have put most the basic bones down and given her rudimentary weights. next comes the drivers and shape keys and that will be "interesting"
ok i am almost done with this level of sketching so i can then ink them
now that i have "bald space monkeys" done i can balance "pouncing", 3d figures, folios and commissions a bit better
Hooray! its done! it took all day to do that last polish and fixing but Finnally its fully complete!
refining more comic pages
i took my oddete model and made her into a renamon. i know i had that other one i was building from scratch but my bunny model was already close to renamons form and getting this far only took a few mins.
went back to redo all the guys skin tone after i found some good color reference for humans skintone under campfire light but i only managed to get 3 done today
whenever i've had the chance i've been going thourgh my old folios that are not on gumorad and quickly getting them ready.
with the current climate meaning a lot more people online having only 47 of nearly 200 products up is not a good thing. i resisted the urge to do any touchups other then the small bits of "make it publishable on most sites"
13 old folios have been re released
2 more page updates as i slowly refine the line work
i liked how the triceratops girl was going so i started a rat mage too.
OH MY GOOOOOOOOOOOD!
she looks so surprised. so taxes are almost done and i felt like putting together a 3d girl lik i use to. there are a few triangles in areas where i stitched her together and she is a bit polygon heavy but the last time i did this it took me a week....this time it took an afernoon. though i still have some UV maps to fix
next step will be to sculpt all the HD information, texture her and rig her
brings new meaning to the phrase "wham bam thank you ma'am"
an update on simone's next commission. i finished the line work and i can now put in the colors
i took a break from the "final polish" on bald space monkeys and worked on "pouncing"
also i got a few more models from daz i had my eye on to help with some "damsel-isious" projects in the future.
99% done there is always a sense of satisfaction when a project gets done (and relief)
ball blasting and laughing at his pain
well so far posting comics on all my sites regularly has been pretty good. but it does mean i am going to have to really put my nose to the grind stone to keep this ball rolling.
i have started planning out in my head a sequel to this comic and i will need to do the character designs for the continuation for "demon quest"
people need their entertainment so it time to put the big boy pants on again
uh oh. some one is a knocking
no sherbet dragon today. it's been another one of those crazy days so i did not have any time to work on it
so my iphone camera takes a way better pic then my scanner. slowly i am adding the next sets of wash before i move into gouache. IF this goes well i will get myself a proper art scanner
i restarted the dragon. this time i inked all the lines with a felt tip .005 pen and most of that jittery line work is due to how hard i grip the pen (i am not quite relaxed with the medium yet)
after the inks i got my BIG set of watercolor brushes and started putting down all the underpainting colors. once that is done then i will go over it with gouache and hopefully have a nice painterly painting in the end
if this looks the way i want it too then i will try the same kind of process for oils. use tracing paper to transfer my image to a canvas. ink the image, do an acrylic underpainting with several translucent layers THEN finish it with ink
i wish i could have more success with a looser method but i think i need to do things with this rigid step by step method to get any real progress
been working on the censorsheiks for this page i know i could get her done faster with the 3d model i have of her but she has more toony expresions this way
i can't say this looks any better in real life. i am just going to have to try again
i did a digital color study for my gouache dragon
a few more pages done
i have been thinking about what i wanted to do with my new gouache and watercolors and what kept poping in my head was "dragon" just your ordinary run of the mill red dragon
ok so today was busy. i had a lot of errands to run for family and the sets of watercolor brush pens and gouache paints i ordered came a day early (woohoo!)
i have a few old winsor newtons from my college days but i am not that good at mixing paints (see my previous examples) so having 60 different colors of each time will make it easier for me to find the colors i will use the most.
now i really need to get a decent scanner so i can do some proper traditionals
today has been a commission day and i am wondering why i have just be so very slow with my content...
censor takes a tumble
I took today to practice traditional mediums. the oils i feel i am improving . the acrylics was a disaster so i need to do a LOT more work on that medium. now the watercolor looks a LOT better in person but i am not a competent photographer so it looks quite muddy right now. once i am comfortable enough in these mediums to do commissions and folios then i will get a good scanner
but for now it more practice
i started painting on the second study
Guess who's BAAAACK
logan's comish is done i just need final review
bit of a chaotic day but i got a few things done
spent all day working on the high def version of my zebra girl. once this is done i can do a few more tweaks on the base model and give her an initial rig.
i have been watching a lot of tutorial videos recently on rigging for blender, particularly "Royal Skys LLC" who has nice short and very "To The Point" videos that make everything a lot easier to understand and implement
trying another portrait study of the master Rembrandt. this time i am putting a lot more structure behind the sketch and simplyfing the shadows a LOT
hopefully this wont turn out a muddy as the last one
i wanted to practice with those manga brushes i downloaded for clip studio and i wanted an exuce to draw Mar and Shesheik. i still need more practice with them
i started using clip studio paint along with photoshop. there are a whole bunch of free brushes for foliage and action lines in clip studio that are not available in photoshop and since i have both programs i might as well use both for what they are best at. but i am going to need a lot more practice in clip Studio
man this book is taking a long time to finish. now all these pages are done but i have 40 pages in total to go through. most the pages just need some color polish so that is good.
i will slowly release the pages on all my sites which hopefully will give me enough time to finish the censorshiek images and build up hype for more people to buy it
and now it is done' i just need simone to go over it and tell me if any changes/fixes are needed
spent most the day finishing this commission for logan. also i finished another commission and sent it to that individual. i have just a few more left to finish. especially Simone's commission wich is very close to being done
aaaand i spent the rest of the day painting the cover. i quite like the way it looks. once i get a nice title i will post everywhere to get the hype train moving
it's pouncing time. i really did not like the old cover i did a while ago so i re did it from the ground up. i like this revisit
i forgot to post the color study i did of jon Neimeisters tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PPdkEEYo3F0
and a study of Paolo Eleuteri Serpieri "Druuna" character. first i just traced over her then i put my trace and the original side by side and redrew it free hand
today i did several character studies for my next project. the continuation of "demon quest". I will be handling it a bit differently then my other projects. all the non smut pages will be posted everywhere as i make them with the smutty pages being reserved for patreon only.
i have been neglecting my advertisement images for too long and i need to fix that
had to finish working on my mothers new iphone and that took nearly 8 hours to do. but i did manage to finish the color on 2 more pages. all that is needed is some atmospheric lighting and textureing
got some acrylics today. but i need a LOT more practice in it before i have enough to show
and working with traditional mediums has helped me look at my digital work in a new light
today was a "work on commissions day" and i am liking how this is turning out. just a bit more refinement as well as any input from simone and we will soon call it done
finally managed to get some work done on the study
finally got the zebra girl done and she went from 20k polygons to 7,8k polygons
almost everything is a quad too
after a morning of retopologizing zebra girl i spent the rest of the day refining line work. tomorrow classes are canceled so i will just paint at home. i have not done any painting all week and i want to get back to the master study
another patreon request was to bring back some 3d folios finally got around to retoping my zebra girl.
it is going a bit easier this time around but i found there are some major flaws in the symmetry of the original model. fortunately the retoping will fix that.
after i finish the retopology i need to do some research into bone driven shape keys and really make this a fantastic model
i just wanted to do a random one off page to loosen up in the morning ....8 hours later and i still feel like i rushed it. the rest of the day was working on commissions
2 different versions of that last panel let me know which you all prefer
interesting morning. spent about 4 hours on the phone with apple trying to get another family member's phone to work properly and that was mentally exhausting. no fault on the apple people's side they helped me get through all of it. the thing just took all morning.
so i did a couple of "de-stress" sketches. not sure if i will ever finish them and the badger i will post everywhere for advertisement but i was able to get back to work after
well i started working on this at 7 and it was noon before i decided it was done....i feel like i let myself have a lazy morning
so i was going to use my water color pens on this but the first try went really REALLY badly and i am too tired to scan it in at this time. so i went back to the digital version and started blocking in some color. realized it was time to post so i put this on hold for now
once i am finished blocking in the color i will go look up some nice jungle art references to help me refine the image
so i got some requests to bring back monkey girl here and full 3d folios (starting with zebra girl) and i thought "sure i will just do a quick sketch then start retopoligzing my zebra girl and make her look even better....then i forgot to pay attention to the time and ended up spending most the day on this...oops
now for the 3d folio. i am going to do that differently to how i have in the past. i will first do the drawing part then make the 3d fit the drawing
ok got the very basic color indications down and tomorrow i cans start laying on the paints
adding some base colors to logans commission
when i got home i wanted to keep painting like i did at class so i grabbed the template i made for the Mar oil study (failed study ) and limited myself to a pallet similar to a rembrandt portrait . it needs more work but i like how it is going
well this is the first "finished" painting for my oil class. next one is going to be a portrait but we get to choose who we draw. like a dumbass i decided on trying a rembrandt copy, i already transfered the pencil sketch to my canvas and tomorrow i start painting
i promptly forgot i worked on these today. after my oil work i was tempted to try to apply that kind of brush work to these images but i stopped myself because that would mean redoing a bunch and that is counter productive (and i would get fussed at) ;)
aside from the oil study today was a commission day.
the oil painting has helped me loosen up with my brush work and laying down color quite a bit
oops this one did NOT turn out that well at all...guess i got a little too ambitious. time to pull back and do smaller scale studies
it's hard not to get swept up in the oil painting bug so here is some updates to tigress pounce
i will need to get some of my photography friends to help me on setting up the lighting so the image has the proper colors as this photo does not have quite the richness in the original but i really do like the way oil feels to paint with
i went a got some fume-less paint thinner a couple pallet knives and an Ottlight lamp as well as a few other nick-knacks i did not already have. most of my practicing will be on simple shapes until i get use to the medium
Logan storm, a long time top tier patreon member popped back into existence and asked for a commission. i asked if it was ok to show its progress here on patreon and he said yes. so here we go
almost got a full day working tomorrow i have to myself so i should be able to get away with a full work day
i kept looking at the first panel of page 2 and thought "what is wrong here?" turns out ....gorilla arms. also the anatomy looked "flat" so i just re did them as that would be faster in the long run.
still researching scanners so i can eventually scan in traditional media but i really need to practice basic techniques. i have some japanese watercolor pens and they are awesome but i only made a few marks with them
just putting some final polish on the characters
finally got to update some page stuff
not that much to update today. monday i will have a free day to work (unless something happens)
also i have had a bunch of commissions land my way so i need to balance that work load too
and i am really enjoying working on this comic
and i am "dead" today. the painting class i attended went great. so good that i am looking up really good scanners so i can add traditional mediums back into my work flow. but after that i was asked to go pick up some new Iphones for my family....and the rest of the day was rather stressful trouble shooting and long waits for data transferring
now everyone has a working phone again but i barely got anytime to work
sorry about all that
as i need to draw a lot of foliage in this comic i am doing some studies. i take a reference image (bottom right) and try to copy it (bottom left) then i re draw it in as many different positions as possible
the first page is done aside from colors ....woohoo!
tomorrow i start a class on oil painting. which will be interesting because i have never worked with oils
woohoo now its time to refine the line work
aaah such fun. many of the pages i really did not have to change much. just alter the pose slightly to make it more dramatic and natural looking, and of course those more involved backgrounds
if you pardon my rambling for a moment. i feel like i can finally draw the stories i want to without having to plan out every character and environmental model
now that i have all the base colors and ink work done for Bald Space monkeys, i took a break and went back to Tigress Pounce and finish it. mostly its just adding more detail to the backgrounds and fixing up the gestures
i already like it a LOT more then how it looked when i abandoned it last time. now i WONT go redoing comics i already finished but i will go back to some i abandoned now that it is a lot easier to do so
ok all base colors down. its rough and it took a few near sleepless nights but now i can get to the final stretch
so i started the day with a "yeah i am going to get a lot done!" can do attitude. 8pm comes around....only...2 ....pages
ok what the heck happened? as far as i remember i was mostly just in front of my computer working
only 2 pages right now. i usually stop after i post but i have been so slow today and unable to sleep that i am just going to keep working until i finally get tired enugh to actually get some sleep.
tomorrow is a day i don't have any other plans (at this time) aside from work so my goal is to have all the base colors down by tomorrow posting time so i can start on the censorshieks and final polish for the colors
all the line work cleaned up and all the basic colors down (mostly flats) now i can polish it all up
alrighty then. just a little more touch up on the background line work then i can add in the flat colors
i was going to try and paint this realistically but i think the simple shadows with maybe a small highlight will work best
i added back the color but just the flats
more monkey love
more color work
went back and polished up the lines
more pages with some base color
i want to hurry up and finish this project along with the delphox folio. i have been hankering to go back and finish a bunch of abandoned projects such as "tigress pounce" and "peak wulf" but i want to get what i have on my plate done first before i take on those projects again
i am also glad that a lot more people are leaving comments and interacting, i will do better to respond to every one and as always critiques are welcome.
some ideas i have had for a while are feeling like they are "within grasp" but again i don't want to overload myself
when i heard about the movie "the meg" the "punny" idea of a porn parody entered my mind. now i got to do a sketch for the cover
not much work done today because i spent most of it hanging out with friends i have not seen in months
finished philophana's line work and working on polishing the rest of the image
just don't call her "shorty"
finally got back to polish the color
i will keep making new characters but i think i will do just one a day instead of...3
seems to keep "my style" all i need is a 3d model for the head. complex color is still challenging so i will need to do a lot more practice but you all can expect a LOT more variety
finally had time to clean up the color and line work
ever since i did that drawing of Mar in this style i have been practicing it off an on trying to get it to look natural. these images we made only using darkest dungeon as a reference but i will add mike Mignola and "primal" as sources since they have similar structures and i really enjoy the art style
yes! that is much better hand gestures. it took me a while of fiddling but i finally got all the hand gestures to look dramatic and no longer "compete" visually with any other part of the image. i also went and made a 3d mock up for the guys head because the base sketch was looking too cartoony and would feel disconnected to the rest of the series
my folks are on the mend so soon i should be able to get back to normal workflow
more color update
another all over the place day. so only got this sketch done
now comes the long part....refining the color
a "de-stress" sketch of a dreagoness heavily inspired by cynder
adding in color now. some of the family here is a bit under the weather so if i am light on posts some days i apologize in advance but at least you will know why (i am taking care of them)
one of them busy days where i could only work on one drawing and the rest of the day was one errand after another
just a quick sketch study
more folio refinement
her lower "close to the viewer" arm was bothering me a lot in the earlier drawing, i wanted it to look like she was clutching her chest but it just made her look like she had some sort of metal collar. so i re-did her arm into the pose you see here. now that i look at it, i can use the previous "hand on chest" pose for her other lower arm. that should keep the overall layout looking good
i pushed the guys posture forward to make him look as "pleading" as possible
getting a few more pages done. and thankfully the dishwasher is fully installed now so that will no longer cut into my day
still not as much updating as i wanted to do. i had to get a new dishwasher and it took all day to install....still not fully installed though
i am eager to get to the color for this one because i have the pallet i wan all set up and i want to try it out
ok this is a complete shill for one of my long time friends but i enjoyed this video a lot and i can't NOT share it :D
bringing back another old folio.
outside of putting on the "censorship" i also painted out a bunch of the sketch lines, just to give it an extra polish
well the inking on this is done
today i was running around all day doing errands so only one image updated
more baldy updates
it was difficult to figure out how to tell this particular narrative in one image without dialogue.
basically the job guy is trying to convince Philophana to get a patent for her clockwork heart and she is being overly dramatic
another page mostly done
just getting an old folio edited for gumroad
the "censor clothes" will need a touch more polish but the big time sink will be saving the PNG format because for some reason it takes a long time for my computer to save that format, even a TIFF takes less time
so if you watch my FA site you may have seen rabbi-tom do a few funny gift arts for me. and since i have been playing around with different styles i finally thought of a good gift idea to give back
lets face it. if mar was in DBZ he's just be Nappa. i'm not as happy with this one as the last experiment. it feels a little 'lifeless' to me
last commission felt like it was more difficult then it should be. so i did a study of philophana to "loosen me up" before i start the next commission
playing around with a different style
alright that's the folio sketched out.
this folio has a little foxy training going on
yes this one is now done!
the next image in the series will be a particular challenge
for my next folio i will finally be fulfilling i request made a while ago (that i forgot about)
in THIS garden the wasp don't want to sting you...she wants you to "sting" HER
awwww...censorsheik is all tuckered out
now i need to just finish the last bit of polishing then the folio will be done
pew pew WOOOSH slowly bush surely i am finishing the comic
time for some sexy sexy color
i have a list of 3d figures i want to make and put up on patreon so part of my resolution is to be a lot better abotu keeping up with my 3d awards
today i had planned to do as many sketch pages as i do as fast as i could draw.....only got one page done though
there. the last censorsheik for this folio now i can finish it
the most difficult thing with these censorsheiks was coming up with all the poses. i have one more image to sketch out and i am having trouble figuring out exactly what i want. hopefully i will be able to post it later tonight
ok almost have the folio done now i need to make all the censorsheiks and final touchups
did some more practice work this morning. need to do a bunch of shesheik too
not much art today as most of it was spend on errands
getting closer t finishing this folio
in between finishing the bug folio i felt the need the sketch out mar. i am pleased with how it is turning out
the base line work is done now i can finish the inking
ok now i got all the base color and line work done. time to polish it up
almost done with the base colors
just refining the line work for pages and getting them ready for inking
i started this kind of thing with the demon girl i drew a few days ago. BUT, censorsheik is FAR more popular so i shifted to her for this.
the project is essentially
focused practice on what i am weakest at
massive reference sheet
tool for quick kitbashing
each major body part will be rotated 32 time and then repeated for expressions and poses and even costume changes
essentially this is the kind of reference sheet i have always wanted but have not been able to articulate until now
2019+ png uploads
really old folios
just making sure all my previous publications are easily accessible
get a bit of that honey suckle
going through the pile on unfinished folios i was inspired to finish Vizzy's folio it needs the least amount of "fixing" and i felt inspired to finish it
yeaaaay a new folio for the new year!
and now that i have a much easier too maintain workflow i will get one done every two weeks without breaking my brain over it. starting with all those folios i only partially finished. don't worry. i will still be updating my comic pages as well, but i will make sure they are up to this level of quality
and there we go. the last few images for censorsheik to go into the polar bear folio. now i can publish it
happy new year everyone. hope you all are having a great celebration and are ready for the new year. lets make it a good one
during the day i needed a break from pages and i stumbled upon some "darksiders" concept art and i thought "that looks fun" so i drew this character
i felt more inspiration to refine the later pages. also i am taking more sketch steps because i felt some of my inked pages were getting a little "dead" looking, which is a sign that i am rushing so adding one or two more sketch layers before the final polish will solve that
i went back to my unfinished folios folder and grabbed this one and played around with the color.
more line work clean up
more refinement on the base color
i never do just "fun" drawings anymore so i am trying to do some of that
some times it is hard coming up with a a funny/cute image for censor in the same theme for a folio
it took a long time rigging the delphox so i worked on this a bit to relax
getting ready for the delphox comic after the bald monkey comic i morphed oddete's bunny model into a Fennec-like fox and gave her the base colors. putting her in the 3d sketch tier until she is done
just one of those days where you are working all day and seems like you hardly did anything
nearly forgot to post the start of the color
more line work done at least for the characters
for blender i don't think i ever uploaded this
i am putting it on the 10 tier because i think she will need a lot of reworking
....censor, that's meant to be YOU
"destructo balls" and "join me in a cup"?
hope you all are having a great holiday. i got some nice new oil paints and a course in how to paint with them properly starting near the end of February since it has been a Very long time since i used any traditional mediums this should be fun and challenging
all day has been a buggy bugmas ...eve
spent the day drawing christmas censorshiel and being with my family. tomorrow is christmas day so i might not have any time for posting.
happy holidays to all of you and enjoy whatever you are celebrating
finished inking the people for a few pages
ok line work done.
i started working on this around noon (had a bunch of errands earlier in the day) and by the time i looked at the clock again it was almost 8 ...where the heck did the time go!? ;)
i must be getting slower in my old age
yes another fun character design for raven and the lilly. with my earlier models i was afraid everyone would look too "same-y" and it took me a while to find a base trident model i liked but the end results will work for the comic
for the next stage of the comic i needed a better "battle ship" an more interesting minion designs for the sea god to attack the main character with.
i went and found a blue whale model and stuck a castle and big barnacles on its back. i then took one of my lizard man monster models i got from online and hacked it together with a shark model i found for a starting minion
i have quite a few models of sharks and monsters and "kitbashing" them together like this will create some fun results
what i like best about these two studies is that they are the closest image i had in my head for what i want my comics to look like in the end
more page refinements
yay cover is now sketched out
sudden whale attack
bunny is as bunny do
based on feedback
for the past couple mornings i have been sneaking in a page of raven and the lilly. i figured if i don't sneak in these pages i will NEVER get to do any of my non porn stories
so far the little old lady is my favorite character here :D
getting that line work to look sexy
you stink! spent much of the day building the scene for the next Philophana commission and getting ready fro christmas so not that much in the ways of updates today
now comes the long task of polishing everything up
did some line work polishing. most the day was spent getting ready for xmas so i still have not finished building the space bridge for the final scene in the comic
so i added my paper texture/ contrast layers after a bit more polish. if the pink and purple colors are still too distracting i will use a few more tricks to push the pallet back to a grey blue theme. and i will need to do the same to all the others to make sure the folio is unified. THEN censorsheik. i will need to make a whole bunch of "stock" censorsheiks to fill in the gaps when my imagination fails me, and to use for comics
the color is almost done on this. maybe i will get it done in time for christmas. i spent the rest of the day trying to get the bridge of the space ship in "bald space monkys" right for the final scene so there has been a lont of searching, building and kitbashing
now it is time for new eyes to point out things that need fixing (because i have been staring at it so long i will have missed them)
today was a slow day for working but i managed to finish the line work on this
(singing) HEEERE I COME TO SAVE THE DAAAAY (singing)
i have rendered out the whole next scene finally so all that is left will be the wrap up and then i can focus on polishing up the pages
QUICK HIDE the B.I.B
getting close to the end now
and these are all done. i will just need to finish the cover and make some censorsheiks and i will be able to publish
i took it easy today and just finished the line work one the post parts of the folio. and grabbed one of my color sketches for the cover. for the bald space monky comic i will need to create two "bunnies in black" BIBs so i can finish up the sketches and go back to polish up the book
i am trying to balance the color now. it feels a bit off kilter and un-unified i want to avoid using a paper texture to unify the pallet because then it won't unify with the whole series. although i could go back and add the texture to the first few images
i won't tell. but i am wondering if i should put in one more sex scene or just do the ending pages
i went back and cleaned up the line work for this page after getting the other pages for bald monkey done. now that i am comfortable with my comic style i can play around with some of the ideas i have.
first thing of course is to keep going with the bald monkey comic and commissions . THEN i can "play"
"good, now get out of here!"
just another page sketched out and ready for refinement. i will need to do some advertisement images to drum up some hype
and another one done
funny how this looks exactly how my best work always looks from my old folios but i can draw it faster and with better color
did this as a warmup in the morning. after bald space monkeys and the as of yet unnamed delphox comic, i have another idea for a comic that will have ratwomen, bug women, mice women, orcs, goblins, dangerous monsters, subterranean root kingdoms and an undead warlord trying to take over the world (insert "of course" meme here)
this is out main character, he may go un named for the entire comic though i have not decided. who he is may be less important than the events surrounding him and i feel that him being unnamed helps solidify that narrative. but i am not set on that.
yes there will be plenty of fornication but i will try to set it up in such a way that i could cut the scenes out and not lose any story elements (just in case i can publish a more mass market version)
not much inspiration to make new pages so i went back to polish up some more line work on earlier pages
he is still not sure what is going on
this style is making it fun and easy to draw folios again. once i have all the pages sketched out for bald space monkeys i can start making them look like these images
she flips him over her and gives him a surprise on the way over
she got grabbed
hopefully i will be able to get back to regular work in the next few days. today there is a lot more family stuff going on, getting ready for the holidays
just so you all know i will be on a day trip with my family tomorrow so i won't be able to do any work
after the folio work i spent the rest of the day polishing up the base colors and lighting. once that is done i will add the details
took a break today from comic pages and went back to the bear folio i never finished because it was relaxing in a "turn your brain off" kinda way and i wanted to see how my comic style looked with it
now GET CLEAN
i think we can safely say that i am hitting my stride with comic pages. that being said i want to go and finish raven and the lilly but since that is NOT a porn i am unsure how many of my patreons would feel about that
page updates. i have no idea how long this book will be aside from i have 3 more sex scenes planned and one more action scene at the end
keep dem noms coming
update on philophana
needed a break from making new pages so i went back and working on the polish
OI! hurt people need to stay in bed
just some line work clean up today
well most the day was spent away from the computer but i did manage to get some work on Philophana
so i had my nephews birthday party today and i was mostly running around trying to get things ready. only managed to get a quick sketch done
and that is the first scene all sketched out. tomorrow i will build the barn and bunny home which should not take too long since i already have most of it done from the first attempt of this comic.
i am a lot happier with this lay out and i have scribbles up to the first sex scene
glad i found that filter. this should make the next few pages much easier
i added in the layer filter to the back ground to see how it looks. it provides a nice guide for how to refine the back ground line work
no matter how many times i try i can't switch over to clip studio pro....especially when i find some awesome tools in photoshop that make my life easier. but the pen tool in clip studio is better for the smaller details
i blundered into a new feature in photoshop that apparently has been in there for years yet i did not know about it.
you essentially do a few layer tweaks and it turns a photo into "almost" a line work,,,combine this with blenders line render and my own line work will make back grounds and mechanical elements a lot easier to get done
yes! got the space ship done and i can start the pages. at least up to the part where we land on the farm. to be honest the farm wont need much external changes but i will refine "not judy"'s house interior.
i spent most the day working on the design of the fighters that will be going after our main protagonist at the beginning of the comic. i wanted it to look a little scifi rather then just the normal jet i had originally.
also i plan to extend the chase scene to what i originally envisioned so it will be more fun to read (and draw)
and lastly here is a model i rigged and posted everywhere http://www.furaffinity.net/view/33822605/
the guy who made the model was tenzide and he let me rig and post it. i am hoeping a lot of people try using it and give me some feed back on how to make my rigging better so i can make better models for all my patreons
just and update as i refine the line wo
i might remove the shoulder plates but other then that i like it
i kit bashed 3 different scifi armors into this but i feel it might be too much like a halo character
i will follow the design to the end but if its too much like a halo armor i will change out some parts to try and make it less so
yeah i really like this style for my comics. once i have my designs down properly i will get back to the pages.
i will be posting this one on all my sites to start getting a buzz going and try to keep people excited for new content from me
nothing unusual about that, move along now
but seriously i like my updated model a LOT more then my older one. yet once again i found some rigging mistakes i will need to fix later
oh noz :O our favorite clockwork moth girl has overdue rent!!!
it took most the morning to save a png version of the comic "demon quest"
and afterwards my brain shut down, even thought i told "noooo i still have stuff i wanted to do"
so after an afternoon of being lazy i got myself back into the swing of things by workign on the line work for this piece
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/g0jfatjpkz47tcn/AADVw0r3Ru140sxkXkA6ee-ra?dl=0 because some people like the png version. the only problem is they take a while to save
ok done...at least done in Jpeg form i still need to format it for gumroad and add in the copy stuff
just a bit more polish on some of the pages so that the whole thing is unified THEN we can call it done
ok there we go. lock this style in for my comics and any folios i do as my base style (just in case i want to try and be experimental with a project in the future)
it;s relatively fast and smooth without a bunch of wasted "noodleing" thati usually fall into
i am almost done with demon quest and once that is done i will get back to simone's commissions and the next comic book project
now i have a few projects i can jump back into
the bunny and the bald monkey from space
or an idea one of my patreons suggested a while ago and reminded me about recently. involving a delphox and her trainer (it was a folio suggestion but i have an idea for a comic)
also one of my longtime supporters Blazcowitz requested some shark themed content. i have 2 ideas
one is a pool party with a leopard shark girl an otter girl and the human man they invite the other is a por parody on "the Meg"....though VERY loosely associated as the lady being a giant shark girl is the only thing in common with the cheezy horror movie. i call it "the Meg-an"
then there is all the non adult ideas i have too
i needed a break from the comic so i did some line work refining
i am trying to stay focused by bouncing around to whatever page i feel motivated in finishing
every time i get to the end of a project it always seems like more work just magically appears
ok we got all the flat colors down all the line work done all the dialogue written and in the files no i just need to finalize the color and put the dialogue back in and this will be done
yes we are getting closer to having this comic done. i hope my next comic i can be more efficient with my time management. though once this comic is done i am thinking of takeing a week to finish off a few 3d figures i have partially done
5 pages done minus putting the dialogue back in
today was a crummy day but at least i got the cover done
woohoo that is all teh line work finished now i can got finish the color
after doing some pages i took a break to do some blender studying. there is a tool called freestyle which creates a lie work layer for your 3d render. the first time i used it i did not care for it because i felt it was too cumbersome.
i went back to it again after watching more tutorials because i hoped it could do more base line work for may backgrounds. specifically anything mechanical
this time i felt it worked a lot better and it will lake a lost of work load off of me at least in back grounds
yesss a day where i got a bunch of stuff done
just finishing up my commissions philiophana just needs the will done and she should be finished.
also the other commissions i am working on are mostly done
tomorrow is back to comics
he looks more like a young adult then a kid but i am mostly happy with his design
i will mostly be working on dailydoe comics and commissions but you will see a smattering of designs for COM and RATL
also i will start posting these designs and sketches publicly in a few days to try and get more people interested
since i have been focusing on comics i wanted to do some updates for raven and the lilly and chronicles of mar
(insert bruce lee noises here)
progress update for Simone's comish. tomorrow it is back to comic pages
only a bit of a light day today for patreon. also if anyone is interested i did re open my commission list, you can find on my DA or FA site
now that "bathing minotaur" is done i can get back to finishing this comic
i need to work on the door bur i am rather happy about how the rest is coming out
scrubadub dub. some love in the tub
yes the book is finally finished
ok got all the pages 99% done. just need to go over them one more time and then finish the cover and i can publish and move on to finishing Demon Quest
yeaaaah up to the cover just a bit more to finish the comic
well today was not a work day. had lots of errands to run including replacing more parts for my computer. my battery back up surge protector died and i had to get a new one. also i may have confirmed the true reason why my hard drive kept chirping
the USB strip i was using is powered so you can have plenty of devices plugged in..it was also about 6 years old. i did some more research trying to find an exact match of the sounds my external drives were making. the closest sound i found was from a youtube video that said that noise was cause due to insufficient power for the drive
so i got a new usb strip and now i will wait and listen. if a week passess and not chirping. then that was the real problem
whaaa!? one and a half pages done?!
ok so i managed to get a bit more done today
yeah i know its kinda odd to be working backwards with this one but hey, it's getting done
Spear and fang share a moment
just saw a bunch of episodes from the show "primal" wow is it beautifully animated and completely brutal
and another one bites the dust....i mean gets done
another page down
it may have taken all day...but i got this one done. demon quest will probably still take a while since after i get all the line work cleaned up but gosh darn it! i am going to get more comic pages done
my goal is to get this style up to 4 pages a day. which means i will need to figure out how to optimize my work flow
which probably means just doing what i do for folios
blend in render colors
finished and posted everywhere. now onward to more stuff
there we go. now i have a better model to work from for my philophana commissions. a lot of these parts were cannibalized from the philiomela's model that Simone sent me. given my level of ability in 3d it would probably take me a few more months of work to actually get her animation ready, but for my drawing needs this is fine
whew! stressful day hope tomorrow will be better. this whole week has been a mess
ho hum another day of only partial working.
this week just had a whole bunch of errands that take a lot of time away from work. i hope tomorrow i can do a full day
sorry not much to update today because i did not get to have much time to work today
so i was only able to finish the line work on one page
yaay update pages. it's all finishing line work and clean up from here on
now excuse me while i throw everything out and restart from the beginning a few more times :P
yeah i rarely do fan art but i like Rakkuguy and i thought it would be cute to do a short comic. surely i could do 4 painted panels in one day.....right? well i will come back to this some other day for tomorrow it si time to finish demons quest and those folios i still have
no horns but still "horn-y" (budum-tish)
most the day was spent putting all the base parts together. like chunks of clay before the real sculpting gets worked on i have put most the basic parts down. as i move forward i will be adding new parts where details are needed and even reworkign the geometry if necessary.
this will take some time but it will be worth it
oh the folio is done. i just need to make the story blurb and save the files in the correct format then i will upload them to the master list and the gumroad list
so painting censorsheik the same way i paint my folios takes a lot longer but i feel a lot more satisfied with the end result
also my friend and art editor has helped me with demon quest by putting down the flats for the rest of that comic. so tomorrow i can get back to finishing it
now i need to paint up all the censorsheiks. then i can do the final fixes for the main folio THEN i can publish on all sights
not sure what happened today, i thought i was working most the day with few interruptions but i only managed to get the sketches for censorsheik done
so this folio is 99% finished it just needs some final polish and censorsheik then i can publish it her there everywhere and move on to the next folio
managed to polish up 4 of the folio images today, though i did not get to work on any comic page stuff today :(
spent most the day working on the mid panel, just refining forms and fixing mistakes. tomorrow i will be focusign on folio stuf, philophana's model and render out at least one more page for this comic
these were the images i worked on today. the last 3 for the folio are already mostly or completely done so i did not work on them.
many of you may remember a whole bunch of folios i never finished and a bunch of really old folios i was updating and formatting for gumroad
well if you all don't mind i would like to finish all those project
i tried to do a speed paint for the lady no horns folio. though i did not finish it i did get a good way through it
the caveat to Eevee is it takes a few hours to set up. not just from bringing in all the correct models and setting up the proper radiance calculators
this whole day i felt uninspired and fatigued barely getting any work done...until the last couple hours of the comic page
even though it is not finished i feel the end product will look great AND the prospect of more pages does not feel as daunting as it has in the past.
and please forgive me for bringing this up again, but i feel my loss of color blindness and the eevee render engine has a lot to help with that
the base colors you see here are technically rendered with more detail then when i used cycles but each image only took about a minute to render.
were i to use cycles or even Daz to render them i would say it could easily take 15-30 mins for a grainier image if not longer.
the caveat to Eevee is it takes a few hours to set up. not just from bringing in all the correct models and setting up the proper radiance calculators, but i spend more time on poses and what lights i have in the scene.
eevee's real time render lets me see almost exactly how it is going to look before i render (and its fast)
most the day was commission work. so i wanted to do a "speed paint" comic page just of Mar and shesheik sparing as a "reward" to myself and to see just how fast i could do a page if i had all my models set up and eevee ready for decent renders......
too bad setting up the blend file took about 2 hours
now that everything IS set up properly i hope to be able to make pages about as fast as my Odette speed paints ( i especially like the last one i did ) . or at least close to that speed
since i will be making about 4 million commission pieces with simone's lovely clockwork bug girl bot ;P
i am making a more detailed model for her so i can put more detail in her and streamline the process
this will take a while though
ok. i grabbed my shesheik custom model and morphed her into a more "chibi" form and re rigged her with my best rig.
this will make it a lot easier for making her for folios and comic pages because i won't need to worry about applying my color and it is far easier for me to stay "on model"
i feel i need to push the cartoony proportions a bit more but what do you all think?
spent the whole day polishing up this folio. getting closer to having it done. i think i will make a better model cor censorsheik by using her non chibi model as a base
yaay robo sharky's character sheet comission is done. and i got a few other commissions done today. tomorrow its back to folios and 3d figures
here is her blend file she id done for the moment but when i learn more techniques i will come back and make her model better (also when i have more time)
took my odette bunny base and made a new bunz out of her....could you tell what my inspiration is from!?
i am pleased at how this one turned out.
ok so i am almost done with this. just some text describing her and a fancy background with a bit of highlights
had a bunch of errands to do today to i did not get to finish this
since these speed paints are going well i will try to do one non folio and one folio image per day
each one only takes about 3-4 hours so that is fast enough for me to keep consistent content for everyone here
Odette back for more bashing...this time wearing a top
today i moved about 30GBs of 3d models from my D to my external 3d drive and then worked on this and commissions the whole day
this one took about 2 hours
i plan to move all my 3d files over to my external before i start organizing, so i have all of them in one drive
after all the 3d work i went back and did a few more hours of polishing up on this folio
my first thought of the day "lets make a quick battle scene between Odette and a chaos knight"
my second thought "now where did i save that cuirass base?"
then i started organizing a bunch of props so i could find them easier.
then i started morphing and texturing the props to fit the base body i wanted them too cover
after a day of 3d file moving and texturing i realized i did not have much t show today
the reason i have so many file and my files are so UTTERLY disorganized is because i use to have very limited download data. some times when i would hang out with friends who had unlimited data they would let me use it. the sessions i would download as much as i possibly could and just dump them in general folders for 'organize later'
soooo yeah "organize later" pretty much never happened and now i have folders all over the place, and a whole bunch of 3d on my D: drive i have not opened in a long while
it would probably take days if not weeks to organize, but i might find some old abandoned tools that could be really useful
ooh boy no energy today. sorry but only managed to get some line work refinement on bald space monkies and finish the linework on Simone's commission. i wll go to be early tonight and try to be more refreshed tomorrow
getting 1 and a half folio images done in a day is pretty good.
but i will still need to wait a day or so on any image so when i come back to it fresh i will be able to see any issues i may have missed
using my orca girl as a base i started morphing her into a shark. i will need to remove the tip of her tail and her fins then re attach new one more in line with a sharks
the speed painting was about a half hour. next time i think i will keep it at an hour minimum just to make sure i don't get wonky anatomy
with eevee set up i can really get stuff cranked out
updating folio bears once i finish this one i need to rework her model a bit so she is easier to render. then i can get stuff done faster with her. but tomorrow i will re work my orca woman so i have a shark girl as well
i am putting Odette's current file in the $10 rather then the 30 because i plan to use my updated rig for her (the one on my new doe model) and that will make some major changes in how you control her
this one took about 4 hours because i needed to do a few more corrections to the eevee set up
there we go. that's the speed i want. from 10+ hours to 3, at least after you get the file all set up.
and with eevee properly setup i can get some better vibrant colors i would have difficulty getting before...also eevee renders in seconds rather then the half hour-hours in cycles
eevee does such a good job i will start posing raw renders again
now that i have the file set up with lights and proper enhancements to the eevee render engine
(radiance probe, ambient occlusion settings on all the textures, contact shadow etc)
after this morning the rest of the day had a bunch of family errands that needed attending so not that much was done today
i looked up some more tutorials about Eevee rendering to try and make it look better, because it is really fast and clean when set up properly. after some tweaking i got a set up i think will look good
learned a big lesson this morning i was doing some experimental work with color.
using a frezzetta sketch as a pallet guide but the sun was coming through some windows and bouncing off all the white walls in my room. this put a slight glare over my cintique that made it a bit hard to see some of the subtle changes in color....turns out it was a lot more pronounced then i thought
from no on i will try to avoid doing any color work when the sun is at certain angles
the rest of the day was spent polishing up the form for this folio piece
rebuilt another part of Simone's commission that was lost earlier. this time i saved it as a separate file so if i have another hiccup i don't lose as much
went in and grabbed my blind Odette model, made a few modifications to her model and spent an hour getting her pose an render to look the way i wanted it to. then i spent another 3 hours on the painting part trying to get it to look good. i think i overdid it in some areas but i got some ideas i want to try out tomorrow
not much in drawing today, bunch of RL errands that needed running. will get back to more tomorrow.
i have a program called dragon bones that is used to turn drawings into simple animations and i want to try it out sometime soon. i already have a pic of mar set up for it. i will just need to follow some tutorials
ok so this is a selfish piece. i have been wanting to update Mar's armor for a while. add more detail, make better textures and things like that.
so i grabbed his face plate and decided NOT to rebuild it from the ground up since the topology was already good enough. i slapped it back into zbrush and sculpt in some HD detail and made a new texture for it. i used zbrushes UV mapping tool to fix the UV map so it could take a bit more detail (not sure how i made it the first time but it was wonky)
made a normal map and exported it all back to blender. i decided to use cycles for the render instead of eevee because i know cycles better and can get more natural looking renders out of it with less effort
brought the render into photoshop and just had fun
well one of my commission files corrupted and i had to rebuild it....boy some times my luck is quite annoying
i think i have a good guess about what the problem might be. the usb connection
because i mostly left them in the usb extender strip i think they may have been building up a static charge and that sometimes interrupts the data.
i came to this guess when my 3d files drive stopped communicating and i did another search online. one of the forums made the suggestion of just unplugging the drive and plugging it back in and that fixed it
a test rig of a bug girl i wanted to build. her arms work really well but i think i will move to shape key driven eyes and expressions rather then the weight painted version
so i started the morning thinking to myself "i will just finish the base cleanup this morning and then start the detailing process another day"
after a while i checked the time "THREE HOURS!?!?" and still not done :(
always be careful what you eat....especially when dealing with a necromancer https://www.dropbox.com/sh/204f3yzw0b5o89w/AAAHctZl9ijSNRW_R_gUzw7fa?dl=0
since i did not get ANYTHING done yesterday i tried to make up for it today by getting as many pages sketched out as possible
now we are getting into the REAL battle
well the 3d drive was making more and more chirping noises so i spent the day transdering 400 GBs to a new drive. i do have a program that supposedly will find the corrupted sections and move the data chunks around (called Spinrite) but from what i found out it will take a MASSIVE amount of time to do that. so i got a new drive to get the files safe and later i will probably use a different computer to scan the drives
after working on some more commission stuff i got stuck back into folios. and spent the rest of the afternoon trying to get her face right
update for robo sharky shark. right now i am working on the linework for her robot skeleton. then her color. once that is done i will look through all the files for this commission, set it up in the final layout and go over it with Simone to se if anything needs a final fix
now the slow part...the polishing. tomorrow i need to get back to commissions and comic pages. i also tried some quick rigging in blender 2.8 and found out that EVERYTHING has changed and i need to re learn all the tools
got all the base colors down. tomorrow i plan to get as much done on this as possible...i definitely will use this method for my comics. after this i will finish some more comishes and then try to power through the comic idea i have had in my head for a while
after finishing off a couple folios and listening to a twitch stream, i went and speed run a folio
taking everything i have been pushing and mixing my old style into it i wanted to see just how fast i can get a folio done and still be really good
2 hour speed paint...would have been closer to 1 but i could not remember how to composite layers in blender 2.8 so THAT took a while to find the right tutorial
i feel i have been WAY too slow with content so after watching one of my favorite artist do a twitch stream for a while i saw some of his methods on artistic shortcuts and figured i could modify it to my own workflow
been updating demon quest
again just a color study of a human face
trying to get better control of my color work
not much here just a study
here is her base model
it is REALLY basic
i added just a simple flat color to see if i could get away with it
played around with line work
i built a model for mothra based off my previous sketch
i need to make her leg longer i think. or make her torso longer
i am planning to do a folio with her and the guy in the top left but keep everything with the flat colors and more effort on the linework
spent most the morning on commissions
i nearly forgot i spent several hours on these two....most of that time was spent trying to remember how to save the files so other daz users can use them
put the dsf file in
my library/ data/ Daz 3D/ Genesis 8/
male/ morphs/ hatton/ product
female/ morphs/ hatton/ product
i don't have ears on them because i am making geografts for them
i probably need to get my timer back out because i only planed to spend the morning on this and ended up spending most the day on it. also the shark guy is a character design for raven and the lilly. i am finally getting a base model that i am happy with to use for that comic
ok. bast parts for the vacuuming water and side vents open up. now i just need to finish up stuff and put it all together in the final file. the other commissions i don't have permission sharing yet so for that i am sorry
started this in the morning and spent the rest of the day working on commissions. i would have spent all day on it but reminded myself i have other projects that also need attention ;)
time to get the lead out my butt and actually FINSH stuff
i have been too lax on productivity....time to dust off my old methods again and drown everyone in content like i did from before i started patreon
this was meant to just be a quick meme sketch. but with all the interruptions and i am SERIOUSLY being artistically slow today i ended up spending all day on it
so i did some more studies only using my 3d model for the head but had to stop so i could shift to commissions again
with my comics i spent a LOT more time on the scribbles so it sis (hopefully) easy to tell what is going on. i plan to use the minimal amount of 3d because i feel i can get a better balance of structure and dynamic posing
did a bunch of studies today. im not using any 3d figures so my proportions changed a bit from Mar to Mar but a bit more practice and studies and i should iron that out
doing these gave me "the creative itch" so i expect a bit of a downpour of stuff
spent most the day working on commissions but then this idea popped into my head. mothra folio
last but not least for today i nearly finished this folio piece
the human face is one of my weakest points without 3d assist so i took a bunch of photos from google search and did some study sketches. i was not trying for a 100% accuracy, more i wanted them to look decently structured and natural
thanks to a steady stream of commissions along with patreon i managed to save enough to warrant buying a commission from an artist i have watched for a while. i asked for a sketch commission of either Mar or Shesheik and specifically asked him to do his own interpretation of my character, i am really happy with the result and maybe some day i will get a shesheik drawing from him too. i think that would be awesome to see how he would interpret her
another morning sketch before i realized i needed to get to real work
just a morning sketch
so i spent most the day on this trying to get the color and rendering just right
spent most the day with friends to recharge but still wanted to work on something. tomorrow is the start of a new week
ok now come the final review from busterdrag to see if there is anything that needs changing of fixing
the chibi part of simones comish. she really should be more carful with her tail
to be honest i kinda dreaded going back to these pages because is seems every time i try to work on them another page gets corrupted. but after working on some more pages for other comics i felt it was safe to come back and start repairing and finishing this comic
quick update on raven and the lilly
uh oh she got caught taking a peak
oh me oh my how WILL she deal with such a "wooden" situation?
ok now that i have course corrected , i hope to finish the sketches for this by sunday at the latest. 4 pages a day seems like a pretty decent clip but i did spend a lot of time building the interior of the house. now that THAT part is done i should be able to make a few more pages per day
sooooo. i was rendering out more pages and sent the first sketches over to a friend of mine, and he said
"i thought he was going to be shot down and crash land in bunny girls barn.."
and here i thought to my self
".....ah crap that is a lot better then how i was going"
so i scrapped the 4 pages i was working on to go with the new idea. right now i am working on the page where he is being shot out of the sky
once again the dreaded "click" happened in my illustration drive. i am VERY frustrated at this especially since it is a new drive. only a few months old.
i did a cmd prompt check on all my drives and my computer says its fine but i don't believe it
only got one page updated.
an update on Simmone's android shark girl commission. the final layout will be different but this gives me more room to work on the faces, since they are bigger here then they will be in the final layout
comic pages updates
so after working mostly on commissions (of individuals who have not given permission for me to post them here) i worked on coloring a liu sketch i did a while ago
ok so starting to add the color base here. i was out most the day so not much drawing done today. the water here is more of a place holder until i can figure out a better pallet
a few dozen tutorials and some testing should get me a much better result
OMG she is completely NAKED..... how scandalous
sorry forgot to post these here
mostly working on commissions again
belle and B-man done
sorry slow work day today so just 2 image updates
now everyone sing
starting busterdrag's comish. of the two sketched buster prefers the second i just need to make sure the guys face matches the character better
polishing up stuff
sketch for her endo skeleton
did a few more pages https://www.dropbox.com/sh/204f3yzw0b5o89w/AAAHctZl9ijSNRW_R_gUzw7fa?dl=0
another one of my commissions i am working on. don't worry i asked the buyer if it was ok to post the process here. back to work for me
here is the base character sheet for our new android shark girl Mina Mishra
there are some empty spaces where i can put some more robot details but the next step is to do the cyborg overlays
a new comish from Simone in light of shark week will be a android shark girl character sheet. so we will have a rotation, expression and a study like this. her initial design is based off my old shark girl folio.
i went an made a very quick and rough morph for her so i can stay on model as i draw more of the sheet
another commission done
i just need to finish censorsheik and this will be done
i find the painting approach more satisfying the the flat colors for censor even though it takes a bit longer
getting close to being done
and now with a little blue blip
finally back to doing some censorsheik
remember that rat assassin i made a while ago? well in her story she is part of a squad of rats with different abilities (mage, tank, healer etc) so i build 5 body types and 5 different texture setups and started sketching out this mage character
but that took half the day, and i had to keep working on my commissions too. so i spent the other half day working on them.
i think it's time to get my timer out so i stop getting lost in a single project
spent most of the day just polishing her shadows and highlights. the painting process use to be stressful for me but now it feels more "cathartic" and relaxing.
just polishing up some line work before coloring mostly did commission stuff today
her leg needs a little more fixing but mostly done
another page added https://www.dropbox.com/sh/204f3yzw0b5o89w/AAAHctZl9ijSNRW_R_gUzw7fa?dl=0
been mostly working on commissions and comic pages
ok so that is all the base colors and environmental details down. now its time for input from SImone
getting close to finishing the low poly retop. i have a lot of respect for people able to do this process well
philophana is still fun to draw.
today when i got up my drive where i keep all my 3d models started "chirping" at me for a good 5 mins before it stopped. that told me that it was about to go bad so i had to spend the whole day copying all the files to a new drive.
fortunately when i replaced my old drawing drive i bought a second one just in case the 3d drive started going bad. i am a bit miffed that both drives went because they were only about a year old.
while all the files were copying across i spent the day working on this and some commissions
now that the colors are all down i can just refine it
updated my tigress model and started a folio image
so this is mostly just for fun. i based my inital idea of the byia body kun doll artist tools. i have tried making things like this before but i normally just fal back to me daz models.
i will make at least a few more and build up a library of body parts
i worked on this for most the day....i think i messed up pretty badly
hmmm. i may have been putting too much focus on updating old folios and not doing enough new stuff
so tomorrow i will focus on comics and new folios
now we are getting back to the folios that did not have censorshiek. so i WONT be drawing new ones of her, want to save that energy for new folios
lots of running around this day so not that much to show. it's an early night for me
some times censorsheik is my favorite part
more work on the cover
another finished commission this was an enjoyable one i look forward to the next
i am enjoying the painting process on this one. also i am going to try and finish it as soon as possible because i am tired of file corruption.
now here is one of the folios i really want to turn into a comic. i have a good idea how to start it but not really how to end it so when i get around to that project i will probably just make it up as i go
another slight rework for gumroad folio https://www.dropbox.com/sh/1w6yyq88pdm7rbk/AADlP4UB0qi0G7fZYIr53CoEa?dl=0 i am trying to get 2 done per day starting as soon as i wake up enough to start working.
and i still have over 150 to go
ho hum. went to rebuild a page i found that went corrupted. it seems to happen a lot for my comics
spent the morning getting as many old folios ready as possible
getting down to the really hard parts. connecting all the joints together while keeping the topology flow smooth
almost done just needs a bit more polish
SOOOO much better. this tool is SOOO much easier then the normal method all the shortcuts i wish i had with blender and retopology are here in this plug in
well worth the 80 bucks.
when this renamon is done i will be releasing her to the public as well.
to show possible new patreons what i can do and to see what people will do with her. hopefully some good animations come out of it (and hopefully my rigging will make it easy)
same with my colorblindness just going away, getting this new tool unlocks a mental hurdle that kept me from doing all the 3ds i wanted to do
i think she is coming along pretty good
now that i have retopoflow the retopology workflow is a lot more tolerable so i wend back to my base renamon and sculpt the HD details on to her with zbrush sculptris pro feature.
this feature adds topology as you need in wherever you are sculpting but is not good for rigging due to it being messy
adding in the base colors now.
another page from "demon quest" got corrupted from that storm a few days ago and i need to rebuild it again. also i had to rebuild a commission so that took a good portion of the day
ok that's the line work pretty much done now i can start the color
finally decided to get that addon for blender that is built to make retopology easier and it is well worth the price. jumping right into it and WOW are things easier. i actually feel like the tools are working WITH me rather then against me
getting the details slowly put together ....BUUUT not going to take a year to finish it this time
a most unusual move to say the least
another commission from Simone. we will be telling the story of Philophana, a clockwork robot moth girl and how she dreams of becoming a movie star.
personally i really like her design and this project will be a lot of fun
several files i was working on now have a disk error and i cannot run the "fix disk" tools on my pc for that drive. i am trying to figure out the problem because the drive is new and i don't want to lose more files. if i am late on posting that is why
sorry for the inconvenience
fixed her hand and started making the station look "sexy"
i will need to fix the jets next
updated a few pages adding in and refining the colors https://www.dropbox.com/sh/4i84mhbcg4ar22t/AABLYOv4HYdcU048_V1BEHN1a?dl=0
getting all the preojects back on track now
i feel like i have been spinning my wheels for a bit, but now am back on track
ok i am opening up my commissions! got everything ready and rules all set
2 characters maximum
line sketch 50 USD for once character 75 USD for 2 (no backgrounds)
color sketch (as seen above) 75 USD for one character and 110 for two (no back grounds)
full painting (backgrounds always included) 200 for one character and 275 for two
all payments up front
3 slots open for line sketch
2 slots for color
1 slot for painting.
and this will give me enough time per week to get back on track too
i will look for a poll option to find out if you all want more focus on folios, comics, simpler colors with more quantity or more refined illustrations
whoo hoo! done
it feels good to get a big project done
i need to do a bit more organization on my commission set up but now we can have more folios, comic and the like back
she's sexy and she knows it ;)
ok now i am getting more comfortable with her design
with blender 2.8 it has a render engine called EEVEE. now i have only had moderate success with it in terms of "sexy renders" so before i started these sketches i sat down and learned how to set up a good lighting room and saved that file as a "master template"
the color is better and a render takes about 1 5th the time. so once i get that retopo tool i can get back to making custom models
this one was done in an hour and the one just before was done in 2. this has a bit more loose feel to it but i need to reall figure out how she is put together
because i use 3d figures for a base and my early days i needed to put out as much as possible every day. now i need to make my foundations better so i don't need to spend days fixing all my early mistakes
so today was a bit all over. spent half of it with family celebrating my sisters birthday. and the other half trying to set up samples for when i open commissions back up. and be more efficient about my art
so i did some sketches and i see there are many places i need to improve. mainly in clothing
i will post what i have and get to studying folds, hair and line work
ok ready for review and any last fixings i may have missed
so this page corrupted and i had to find a older version from the hard dive i replaced. not sure why it corrupted but the others are all fine and i have not bee able to do much drawing because its the 4th of july
HAPPY 4th !
what i might do is get a bunch of thumb drives and start backing up all my files that way i will look up whetherthumb drives are a safe way to back up data (because for some reason the idea of having a lot of 32+ GB thumbdives awakens the collectores impuls in me)
ok so i got all the character flats done and now i need to do the background flats. after that is done then i can add the fun stuff
hopefully tomorrow i can be a bit faster at the back ground flats so we can get to the finalization
ok this set is almost done. just a bit more polish on a few of them and some final reveiws and we should be golden
back to comfort zone and a sketch of Liu i have a LOT of figures saved on my hard drives that need to get more drawing time
so this month i will focus on finishing the commissions, demon quest and getting that blender addon that should make retopology much better so i can get back to making models from scratch that can be used for animation
so i spent the day trying to get this idea down. again going for that elusive cartoony style. the first few attempts i thought were working but as the day went on i found the quality dipped further and further. so i made a very rough mock up in zbrush just to get the basic forms down and rigged it in blender and did some more sketches
almost done for some reason this one was very challenging and i had to spend all day getting it to this level. the blobs of off white on the mirrors are place holders for all the other images that have happened in this full set of commissions. the idea will be to make them look like photos and news clippings. once all the images are done i will organize them into a proper timeline
tomorrow i think i will focus on getting this and the show must go on commissions done
slowly coming along
sorry but i felt a bit under the weather today. not enough sleep so i was only able to focus on one project and slowly today
still a lot more that needs to be worked on but we are getting there
polish polish polish
she's all gift wrapped now
this one i really want to make a comic for....actually there are MANY folios i want to make into comics
kota and bruce on their honey moon
another folio updated for gumroad. only around 150 more to go
had to fix a corrupted page.
i am going to need to put a LOOOOT of flat colors down before i can start rendering
alorix asked if i would ever do more standing studies of some of my female characters (like my shark women) so i did.
if you all want me to keep making just design pics like this and / or illustrations of solor women let me know
i have been wanting to draw Mar vs some creepacorns for a while and i tried to get it done in a single day.....nope not going to happen so i will need to wait until next sunday before i get back to this one
now that i post this i can see more things that need fixing. this is still just the sketch phase so i will keep polishing them as i go
ok i like some parts of this but i went too hap hazard with the lighting and color rendering
ok i like where this color is going
getting back into the swing of things
today i had a friend come over to help re-frame a print i got from my old college mentor and after that we spent the day trying to get my scanner to properly scan high quality traditional images
it turns out we need to do more research because my scanner is not built for scanning drawings and is limited to 600dpi and always saturates things
so no real drawings today and i will get more posted tomorrow
sorry RL got in the way a bit yesterday so i was not able to do much work
i skipped ahead to this one because i felt more inspired to finish it
had a bit of drama go on today. after a restart of my computer i got the blue screen of death i thought i had to reinstall my OS....turns out the restart just mess up the boot order and my computer was trying to look at my second drive for the OS instead of my main drive
i could easily make full comics out of each of these folios
trying to get one a day done so i don't take YEARS to get all the folios reuploaded
i am going t work on this set for the rest of the week because i think i can get it all done and because it is fun
flubbed the day a bit. spent several hours making a custom dragon head for mar to sit on and ends up you can barely see it. been having a lot of trouble getting Mar's face right so next sunday when i get back to this i will try rendering out my 3d model i have for him and see about using that for reference
had a bunch of stuff to do away from the computer. but i had a good review from my old mentor from college, Mark Schultz, creator of Cadillacs and dinosaurs.
i showed him the pages for raven and the lilly to get a feel for how well i can tell a story from the perspective of some one who has been in the industry for about as long as i have been alive. he told me there was very little that needed fixing so that was a good ego boost and it makes me feel a lot more confident with drawing comic pages.
so i am itching to do more pages for LOTS of ideas
today i focused on getting those folios i have partially done, finalized https://www.dropbox.com/sh/r0mjwwe9tqyvcm0/AABQCvkJ_KbALL5HWudNdmCDa?dl=0
right so i spent the day re topologizing (try saying that 3 times fast) and it was rather difficult. lot of mistakes, lots of redos, lots of "go back and fix this". and once i got it done and back into zbrush for some sculpting.
low and behold.
her face gets some nasty poly stretch which will be REALLY bad for animation or even sculpting in general.
so with that mess up out of the way i will look up more tutorials on proper retopology work flow and maybe some better tools to make the process easier
a blender took called retopoflow looks promising. if i can get the process of retopology to feel smoother and less tedious then there are a lot more figures i would want to make
spent all day on this. all it needs is Simone's review, any corrections and a final polish
ok so here is a dumb idea i was thinking about starting around october if you all find it interesting. it is a completely SFW story and very rough because i just came up with it a few hours ago
human ghost is being sent back to the world of the living to be reborn.
but instead he gets trapped in a teddy bear....on an alien planet and his is given to a little alien girl.
very grumpy about this turn of events he is very foul mouthed at first until he find she can hear him, so he cleans up his language and tells her he is her imaginary friend. most days are spent just being a good imaginary friend, until one day she and her single mother go camping and the little girl is separated. the ghost guy helps keep her calm as the night wears on but wild animals start circling in the distance. he tells her to find a secluded area to hide. she passes out from exhaustion and one of the wild animals get closer finding their hiding place.
in a panic the possessed bear yell BOOGA BOOGAA BOOGAA! at the animal and is surprised he scares it off.
cut back to the mother who got a whole search party together and are desperately trying to find the girl. suddenly a small pebble hits one on the back and they turn to find out what threw it. hearing what they think is a person talking the rush in the direction the pebble came from.
flashlights fall upon the bear as he sits motionless just in front of where the girl is sleeping, and she is rescued.
years go by and the mother tells the girl she should not have an "imaginary" friend anymore. the girl does not want to but the bear agrees and decided to not talk anymore.
more years past and the girl is in her mid teens with the bear up on a cupboard. the mother gets a new boyfriend who acts really sleazy and creeps the girl out. the bear agrees but accidentally does so out loud freaking the girl out and she throws him in the closet.
the mother has to go to work (nurse emergency call) and the sleazy boyfriend goes up to the girls room and tries to force himself on her.
fear panic and angry fills the bear and he forces himself to move again, kicking open the closet doors distracting the boyfriend. but as soon as the sleaze looks around the bear has stopped moving again. the sleaze threatens the girl to not move and he goes to stare at the bear for a min.
nothing happens and the sleaze turns around saying "huh. now where were well?" the bear leaps onto his back bellowing "ZULL MOTHER FUCKER ZULL!"
the struggle have the sleaze fall out of the room and onto the landing (two story house)
he gets up and inches back to the door slowly. when he gets to the door frame the bear jump scares him yelling "I'M GONNA GO CHUCKY ON YOUR ASS" causing the sleaze to fall down the stairs. as the sleaze gets his bearing back the bear peaks over the top of the stairs and menacingly says "peekaboo i see you"
the sleaze tries to get out the house but forgets he locked it and too panicked to unlock it.
the two "fight" back and forth in a sort of "child's play" way until the sleaze lights the bear on fire with a pilot light and throws him in the trash causing a moderate fireball.
at this point the mother has come home and only saw the sleaze throw the lit bear into the trash. the daughter tries to explain but the sleaze has had enough slamming both the women against the wall near the front door and looks like he is going to kill them.
suddenly "SMOKEY IS PISSED!" as the bear jumpkicks the sleaze in the side of the head throwing him right out the front door and onto the lawn.
the bear has also fallen outside charred and still smoking
many of the neighbors poke their heads out of doors and windows drawn by the commotion.
both the bear and sleaze stagger back to their feet, the sound of sirens getting closer off in the distance.
both are barely standing and the sleaze looks at the little teddy bear with terror in his face.
walking towards the sleaze, the bear says " you know smokey says..." then leaps at the sleaze "...only you can.." then punches him across the face ala one punch man style "..GO FUCK YOURSELF!!" knocking the sleaze out cold. the bear falls face down and the girl runs up scooping him up but he is non responsive and starts falling apart.
a gentle blue light envelopes the two and the ghost guy from the beginning. "see i told you i was an alien" and she hugs him. his spirit departs with a teary farewell and the ghost guy is taken up into the sky....only to be put into another bear in an unknown toystor
"OH COME ON!!!"
MOOOOM your embarrassing me!
last week i thought to myself.."should Mar have siblings?" i have always thought of him as an only child but since the Dyson lifespan is 1000 years on average i'm not sure if it makes sense that his folks only had him.
so here we have Emanuel. Mar's (real name Marvin) older brother (by about 50 years)
Mar and Emanuel (nickname E-man) have 3 uncles and an aunt on their mother's side and i have not figured out how many on their fathers side yet. heck. i only ever drew Grangran once
right so i stumbled across programs like Spine and Dragon bones. and i wanted to get back into animation again. i have only dipped my toe into animation in the past and had to abandon it because it is very time consuming and at that point in time i REALLY needed to put out a lot of folios. now that i have enough folios to put back onto gumroad, my comic pages are coming along nicely, i am not color blind anymore so i have a lot more freedom with my pallets and i just organized my week days so i stop leaving project behind. i can take Saturdays for me "animation" days. once i learn enough about dragonbones (which is free) i will start animating some of my best old folios and make some new images just for animation
however tomorrow is Dyson Day. and that means Mar and shesheik all day as much as i can draw. i am going to keep working on this to see how much more i can get done before turning in but i don't think i will be able to make anything that interesting before the night is done
re uploaded for gumroad
edited and reposted for gumroad
whew! this took all day. i wanted to make this animation ready so i had to plan out my topology. i made sure that most the topology would be squares and rectangles. no i have not done this kind of retoplology very much so i am unsure if it will be animation viable when done
tomorrow i will update and upload a bunch of old folios
ok ready for final review. it took all day but i think it looks pretty good
more color on the demon quest pages https://www.dropbox.com/sh/4i84mhbcg4ar22t/AABLYOv4HYdcU048_V1BEHN1a?dl=0
shishi wants belly wubs
ANGRY BUGGIRL NOISES
sunday tired and posting bad joke content
refine the line work some more on this
forgot to post this yesterday but i am getting back to more 3d models since i have learned a log more. the renamon i will be doing from complete scratch and i am working on the retopology so the base can be animated
posted the bathing suit version everywhere else
now to get back to this. like demons quest i will do all the sketches first. just so you know this is NOT a porn story
done now i need to wait until godzilla started getting fan art
a friend of mine just saw godzilla king of monsters and suggested i make a drawing of mothra to try and rid the fan wave when it hits here in the states. it took all day just to get to this part because i did not use any textures on the models and i did not plan out a specific light source
i focused on just one image for today. and i think it's about 80% done
Blue DOOOOOOOE i saw you laying alooooone! looks like she needs some company.
spent the day getting as many folios ready for gumroad as i could today https://www.dropbox.com/sh/fluoqpdzsxahe70/AABX2jqhgPYlOxlUl23CBlfGa?dl=0
initial study for mouse mage
sorry but when i was working on pages from Demon Quest 3 pages corrupted and i lost the original files. fortunately they were just on the sketch level and i was able to rebuild from the drobbox posts
not done but i am tired and needed to post stuff. found an artist that did some sexy rat women so i decided to try emulating the style to see what i could learn from it
i got the most from the color
just another silly idea i had https://www.dropbox.com/sh/9w6xyg2xhhu731d/AADGT9aUnTcBisVwnn6oTZIza?dl=0
i am REALLY happy about my color site becoming normal, it means i don't have to set my color pallet in stone with a long render and couple it with the super fast EEVEE render engine i can crank out sketches like this really quickly. the only thing that slows me down is if i cant find the exact model (usually some mechanical type prop) that i want
now that all the base colors are put down i can start finalizing and unifying the comic
my art hard drive (the one i keep all my current work) started making clicking noises and had an error the computer fixed. i looked up the problem and it was "the drive is dying"
so i went and bought a new one then transferred all my files to the new one
that took nearly 5 hours
so i decided to keep working until i am about to turn in for the night to try and make up for the lost time.
been adding in the color for the rest of the pages
the more comfortable i get with choosing color the faster and more vibrant i can get these pages done
now i have to do the base color
most the pages are ready for color
prepare for the cringe!! but seriously i hope the dialogue does not suck
now i need to get all the pages refined enough for coloring
yes! the first chapter is complete!....or at least all laid out https://www.dropbox.com/sh/91kedo9yhzqxdvi/AACwJ5GKdmC9f_EjCC_q4tPia?dl=0
now i need to go back and add in the first draft of dialogue and sound effects. please bear with me because it will probably be REAL cringe worthy
made my tweaks for gumroad https://www.dropbox.com/sh/k6d7y4on5ynfbua/AADlEezdfe9XpEEPW8z7li_Fa?dl=0
made ready for gumroad
made ready for gumroad
getting some basic colors down
beeee da bad puns
ok i edited this to get it ready for gumroad....only about 150+ more to go
so today has been hectic. i have a bunch of guests coming over tomorrow so i spent most the day just making sure everything was ready. tomorrow it will be an all day event so i probably won't be able to post anything.
after reading a bunch of one punch man i got the need for more pages. more updates later tonight
after the render i though "ooooh inspiration!!!" so i went back to my beholder type monster and cleaned up it's base topology and added some loops and extra squares so it will be easier to add in the high definition detail
anyway back to the regular stuff
i have been using eevee render engine for the base or "demon quest" because it is really fast. my renders tend to not look good but i have seen other 3d artists get some really good results out of it.
so i went through a bunch of lighting tutorials and came up with this. now it takes about as much set up time as with cycles but when you press that render button....WOW is it fast
i updated a few pages in the link. i am still working on more pages so i will be updating this for a few more pages before the evening is done. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/91kedo9yhzqxdvi/AACwJ5GKdmC9f_EjCC_q4tPia?dl=0
just organizing the line work files into one folder. i did a bit of extra sketching on some of the pages but not much.
i spent about an hour online trying to find some images that have a color scheme i wanted....then i realized i can just use the folio images i already have done
tied up and loving it
mostly just fixed her costume
starting to put in the base color
again i grabbed a whole bunch of images with the color pallets i wanted and started painting
i am not sure if these will look any different color wise to my normal method but i feel they will be a touch richer overall
even though i can see colors better i still have trouble properly choosing the right colors. so i grabbed a bunch of armello paintings that had color schemes i liked and thought would work well together and used them as reference
not much done today
this time there was not as much in the way of editing. just a few bathing suits here and there since i have nearly 200 folios to get back up on gumroad https://www.dropbox.com/sh/0bryihzf3lpm11y/AADngdHEbAHZ9AsZYb93UENKa?dl=0
for this folio i only had to do a bit of fixing to make it ready for gumroad
yaaay another one done now for the next one
ok just a bit more polish for the folio and she be ready to publish
the doc will see you now
i finished the line work of all the censorsheik bannmar images but i need to add the flats in. once that is done i will post them later tonight
i did some facial expressions for kid mar
a bit of a retcon of dyson agricultural structure. instead of being strictly vegetarian, they engineer certain animals to produce meat products in a way that they don't "have" to kill the animal for harvesting.
the scales of the Pangippo are mostly a fatty muscle deposit that can be plucked off when they reach a certain size. the scales re grow and the animal is unharmed
i changed the "vegetarian" part of dyson because at first i was trying to make an "idealistic" society. but that is boring.
the reason i made dyson "vegis" in the first place was from an even in their past. long ago they found out that one of the "meat" animals they were harvesting and raising was actually a sapient race. kind of a "soylent green" premise.
but even though the pangippo is not "suppose" to end up on the dinner plate....when one dies of natural causes (or the price is right) ...exceptions can be made
after i was fatigued on demon quest i came back to bathing minotaur. i feel much more comfortable working with the color of this now
i have more pages i am working on. i will try to get them posted later tonight
a speed paint i did this morning just for practice tomorrow i will post it everywhere for advertisement. the rest of today was comic pages and errands
this was the only other thing i was able to work on today. tomorrow i will be gone for most the day so i will not be able to work
ok i completely screwed up my work day with this. i was trying to do just a quick drawing without my 3d figures, which for some reason is a LOT harder doing NSFW stuff then sfw stuff. when i got to this stage i checked the time and found out i used most the day to get just to this part......yeah i definitely need more practice with non 3d couples
also my color choices need work
i want to start doing more warm up sketches. just one in the morning, something i post everywhere and get back to a consistent advertising of myself like i use to do when i was only doing folios
the rest of this day was censorsheik
when Mar tells you "leave me be"
yeah you tell the ground who's boss
HIT THE DECK
mar...you KNOW those are important to keep safe
just a creepy sketch
gotta stay limber
ok bad pun on azula
today i just needed to sketch so i will post my sketches everywhere to try and bring more attention to my work
censor: putting out flame wars everywhere by giving all a "cold shower"
still working on stuff. will post more later this evening
ok due to bunny day celebrations i only could get the bases done for the commission set "the show must go on" tomorrow i have some light home repairs to do so i might have another light posting day
almost done with this folio
sorry been sick all day, have not been able to work
did some sketches to try and get more expressiveness in my drawing of her
quick grendal sketch
i re sketched the first panel trying to make it more dramatic at least by the angle
so getting back at "peak wulf" for a bit i wanted it to look more like the game it's based VERY loosely on "armello" and i wanted to make the panels more expressive
now in technicolor goodness
