Hey, so yeah, I'm still around
you know? I can seem that most of my shit has been Homestuck lately, but up until just last week I've been more Captain America. I just can't draw Marvel
stuff worth crap, so no art. Then two days ago Clockwork
from Danny Phantom...you guys remember him right? Well he popped up and just won't leave, so I'm finally getting around to reworking my Danny Phantom shit like I always planned.
Hell, I've even started to pen out the starting pages for the rework of Redemption
. Any of you who care about me might remember this little thing?
Yeah. it has it's own comic idea attached. I don't know if you remember that. I talked about it on this page here:
And then there's this rebooted attempt at a first page that never really went anywhere:
And honestly? It never went anywhere because that style attempt was a pain in my ass. A couple of months back I drew concept art for a cover (with no background, because I need to figure out how to background better) and now I've actually got a rough sketch of a first page. It's a POS to be honest. There is a lot I need to fix on it (Clockwork's eyes, his staff, a lot of shit) but it's actually in the works, and I have a feeling Clockwork isn't gonna leave me alone this time.
I've also started a reboot of Destiny's Calling too, with a reworked chapter script and a reworked concept cover page as well. Especially now that I've learned more about drawing comics and perspective. Yeah, I haven't put much up on it actually, but I've been practicing. Backgrounds still primarily elude me, but I'm working on them.
Finally I've begun reworking Half-Ghosts, Lightning Bolts, and Magic, as well as fixing up Cradle This Moment, all of which are still in the rough drafting stages like Redemption and Destiny's Calling, but are coming along a lot smoother. Especially since I'm not high off of caffeine these days. I've mostly quit drinking soda and other high sugared and caffeinated beverages aside from tea.
So now I'm left with, well, a bit of a dilemma.Do I attempt to colorize these pages, or leave them in black and white with colored "special" pages?
Below, and in my gallery now, you'll find my WIP for the new first page of Redemption. I'll include an example of what I mean by black and white, let me know if you think it looks good enough to remain that way, or if a colored version might be more interesting.
I really do want to know.
(if you want more of me rambling on things, what I'm currently obsessing over [mostly marvel stuff, some ouat, some maleficent] or updates on working on projects I'm on tumblr under the username xadoheandterra)
I'll include more later.
