Project ADC-1: 25 September 2015

 

My digital comic project went off the rails a bit over the last 2 weeks when I decided to re-write the plot.  It didn’t reveal enough about Benevolen’s stealth abilities.

Now it does.

I’m starting do reconsider my over-riding prioritisation of timescales.  Quality is starting to matter more to me than getting this done quick.

Hmmm meditate upon this I will …

Project ADC-1: 11 September 2015

 

Project ADC-1 update. I’ve been changing my art process over the last 2 weeks and believe I’ve found a way to speed up without sacrificing too much quality: Skip the line drawing and go straight to painting.

For the next 2 weeks of this Make An eComic project I will continue to focus on concept art. However my original estimate for how long the concept art stage would take is looking to be way off the mark.

If the deadline is the priority I need to come up with some kind of genius idea for getting back on track …

eComic Concept Art: Sylen Benevolen 2H

 

eComic Concept Art Sylen Benevolen V2H
eComic Concept Art Sylen Benevolen V2H

Added in the light tones, tidied up a bit and added a background with a brush tool set to watercolour.

This picture has taken 14 hours in total due to me struggling with getting his legs right, changing my mind on him being topless to wearing a jacket and spending too long on the linework instead of getting straight down to the painting.

Anyway I’ve added this to the eComic Concept Art page of Project ADC-1.

Project ADC-1 update. I’m still making an eComic. The last 2 weeks have been spent mainly on concept art and have shown me that this project is not going to plan. My digital art process is taking too long so I’m looking for ways to speed it up without losing too much quality.
