That thing I was working on. Forever.
This one was all about - as each one should be about, in theory - pushing myself to try new things. I’m comfortable with drawing, with inking; these are areas in which I continue to grow, but are familiar. Even though I’ve digitally colored for years, it’s been, on the whole, flats with some cel shading once in awhile. I could claim this is because I was training as an animator. But the truth is digital painting has always seemed overwhelming and hard to approach, especially for someone as used to working manually as I have been. I’m making myself learn it, though, the only way you can. Look at all the tutorials you want; in the end, you have to start to do. The rest is messing up, doing odd things, and figuring it out. Or so I assume. I’m still in that first stage.
Whatta ramble. Anyway.
I like Maleficent. Here’s a wild redesign. (Of her younger, I guess????) A bit Disney by way of Jack Kirby, with a hard left at Art Nouveau.
