This chapter of The Muse Mentor represents a pretty big jump for me in terms of how I approached the actual illustration, and while I know it may not be super apparent to anyone but me, I’m pretty happy with the shift. It feels nice to think I am improving!
I’m ready to go for it in 2 weeks with chapter 5. I won’t be stopped!
It’s done. Don’t any of you ever let me do this again… unless I make it to round 3. Then… you know. Cut me some slack. I gotta compete!
Am I honestly not even done flat coloring this yet REALLY??? And there are stilL TWO PANELS NOT EVEN PICTURED thunking my head on my desk repeatedly why did I do this to myself.
Okay, but really… you guys do NOT know how long it took me to ink these panels…
…and I have two to go… why… why…
(As always, Logan and Eleanor are Sam's, and Campbell is Kayzig's!)
And now that I’ve completed this one, I’m gonna - I’m gonna go… do another one? Really? Y-yeah, I guess I am, haha!
I’m still competing in Miss OC Pageant 2013! Or rather, Harlowe is!
I did all of this for sake of drawing a turtle in a paper suit and other people’s characters milling about. This is for a supplementary type dealie that doesn’t get included in your judging in the Miss OC Pageant @dA… I guess I’m a sucker for cameos, huh? TIME TO LIST THEM, again!
Characters I borrowed: Monroe from Kayzig, Wynne and Kevin from Oly, Zintiel from falingard @dA, Keziah from catkicka, Veera from Riyami @dA, AND Sephirisse from The-MoonSquid @dA, and of course Logan from chainsma.
Penn, you are now holding up this cameo-laden train.
(Seriously! I borrowed Monroe from Kayzig, Wynne and Kevin from Oly, Zintiel from falingard @dA, Keziah from catkicka, Veera from Riyami @dA, AND Sephirisse from The-MoonSquid @dA, NOT TO MENTION LOGAN FROM SAM. Is there anyone I DIDN’T borrow?? (Oh, well, uh, Harlowe and Penn, I guess… they’re my fault.))
Gad, this thing is taking me FOREVER to ink, and there’s still a big stand-alone illustration that goes with it, and I still have to COLOR everything. This is why I am awful in contests, man, I try to do too much and I don’t go FAST ENOUGH with it.
But yes, here have… this super unfinished thing. When is the deadline, again?
May as well drop this, over here! You may have already seen the inked version, but I went in and added enough pink-purple to last you a few years - you’re welcome. I have Harlowe entered in an OC pageant competition on deviantArt and wanted to introduce her enormous crew of supporters, haha. Thank God for spectator entries.
(As always, Logan and Eleanor are Sam's, and Campbell is Kayzig's! I'm just borrowing characters left and right.)
