I am having so, so much fun with these pages.
I’ll do an official update later today with progress bars and all that junk, but for now I’m just going to let you all know what’s up. Last night I completely finished the Fiah pic, and got the Ith pic flatted and all the effects painted and integrated into the flat. I just need to do all the shading, and that should be done in no time. Today, however, I’m flipping over to maintenance mode for my buffer—I’m currently working on two pages (instead of my weekly three) which will keep me five pages ahead, but not grow my buffer any. I’m currently sketching them out, and the plan is to ink and possibly flat them tonight. As soon as they’re flatted, I can safely set them aside until Saturday where I can finish colouring them, and spend the rest of the week on the book’s bonus pages. I’m actually really excited to be drawing the pages that I’m working on (that dude up there? He’s a design for an upcoming page happening this chapter, not a bonus page for the book! Exciting!), and I’m actually kind of relieved that, aside from some space-ship exteriors, I get to do a lot of nice, fun, organic backgrounds, which I am all over.
Anyhow, enjoy this adorable tyrant! Imma get back to work.
