Made a little more progress on an illustration (still gotta add clutter/junk EVERYWHEERRRRE) inbetween thumbnailing out a jillion short comics. Second and third pic are character/style brainstorming sketches for one of ‘em.

It’s weird - I’ve spent YEARS freaking out over wanting to tell stories and not knowing where to start, and all of a sudden I have a million ideas for ‘em and I’m ACTUALLY DOING SOMETHING with them. Feels good. 

I’ve got a lot to learn, still, but dang. COMICS! EXCITING!

workin’ on a trillion things at once (really just two big ones, and I GUESS I’m gonna probably end up rendering that horrifying mac tonight doodle. yep. )

progress shots of a couple different things. still only have a hazy idea of what i want the lighting/color in the second piece to be. probably dark w/ high contrast shadows? we’ll see. WE’LL SEE.

Unexpectedly finding that filigree is really fun to draw. 

SKETCHDUMP! Since moving back in with my parents I’ve taken to making a lot of frantic notes and thumbnails on notecards, and leaving them around my desk and continually losing them like a gigantic dork.
STILL! It keeps me reasonably on-task, and helps me break past the occasional “I don’t wanna ruin this perfectly good sketchbook page w/ a bad drawing” idiocy. 
So - some more thumbnails for future drawings of those same weirdos I keep drawing, and some monster sketches.

EXPERT HIDING TECHNIQUES: The Column and The Door Frame Compress. 

just a bit of doodling between working on freelance stuff! these guys are my go-to for stupid monster hijinks lately. 

a SUPER IMPORTANT COMIC about poop, and some warmup doodles. 

This is happening! Planning on using much more limited animation for these.

TWO OF MY FAVORITE THINGS: eating and reading! 
Walking’s okay too.

I’ve become so enamored w/ working in manga studio 5 that I’ve been painting and doodling and basically almost completely avoiding inking the comic I started working on earlier this year/late last year (in manga studio 4 . I could move it over to the other program, but…. I. Well.)
I REALLY OUGHTA FINISH IT, BUUUUUUUUUT in the meantime - I’ve been farting around with worldbuilding for the other little creeps sharing my headspace.  Pictured are Griselda’s parents - she takes after her father in body type, so for most of her childhood regarded her mother as a mysterious and intimidating giant! HOW COULD SHE EVER ASPIRE TO WOMANHOOD with this creature setting the bar so high?
also I guess I’ve decided that these guys have human-like hair distribution? except in cases like pops here, who is absurdly hairy by his species’ standards.

I can’t stop painting these guys! BIG SURPRISE, TODD IS UPSET AGAIN.  I usually don’t do a lot of SUPER DARK paintings or pictures like this, and now I wanna do more in the future.
