Boyyy let me tell you! So I finished inking and after waiting the agonizing hour I gave it to dry ran over to my scanner to find that my clever plan to tape two papers together to make it simple to scan would not work - my scanner was an inch short on all sides. DROVE TO MY FAVORITE LOCAL SHOP IN THE DEAD OF NIGHT to scan it there, I was so excited. Got the PDF files, set it up in Photoshop to color the line art and conked out. WAKE UP, IT'S TIME TO COLOR.
Color color color LAYERS like an ogre I tell you, more coloring! Cintiq display gettin' fuzzy - WHAT'S GOING ON NO no no, no technical difficulties, willed that biz away REAL quick (the power of denial, man, the next day the screen was clear)
DONE. Love it. Gorgeous. Maybe tweakage? Likely. Not now though, it's DONE!
This is just too sad. I often joke that if something isn't on my calendar, it no longer exists. This is apparently true of this Streak. For the past weeks, I had neglected to put StreakClub on my calendar — and promptly forgot all about it! The habit of working on projects has been sustained, however, and since I haven't yet let a month go by, I'm counting this as a win.
I've begun illustrating a poem written by a co-worker. It's been a good exercise in color theory and experimentation. I'll give you only a sneak peek for now!
