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?
Gotta figure out how I want to shade this. This is for a competition I am in over on dA, just as a little aside for fun! Harlowe has a lot of people running around backstage… she should get them matching TEAM HARLOWE t-shirts, or something.
Thank you to Kayzig for letting me borrow Campbell, and thank you to Sammy for letting me borrow Logan and Eleanor!
Mannnn, these things took forever! Well, specifically, the flats took forever because it’s that tedious time where you are still figuring out their swatches. And they aren’t finalized in design OR colors ‘cause I still gotta run them by the co-creators (1 and 2), BUT. Hey. I haven’t posted art in a while, so why not!
Bosun, steward, engineer, bowhook, sternhook, cook. Said I’d delete the inks once I had them colored, aaaaand, I did that! I won’t be shading these since they are just palette tests, but I am already really… really liking drawing out this cast. Like, A LOT! I gotta get on the full ensemble pictures, soon.
I am queuing this for maximum stealth since I haven’t been able to run the final colors by some people yet, but… we are working out where all the body markings go on the Vanished people and making sure their silhouettes work in ensemble. Left to right it goes… Harlowe, Ide, Eleanor, Penn, Logan, Campbell. I am borrowing Eleanor, Logan, and Campbell from chainSMA and kayzig, respectively!
Have some random arts of two really cool ladies FROM two really cool ladies - Eleanor courtesy of chainSMA and Campbell courtesy of Kayzig!
I was going to write this big dedication about WHY they deserved some fanart… but I think it’s probably enough to say that I think they are great people and creators, and that I love their characters - and I am even privileged enough to WRITE WITH THEM, which is always fun! Thank you both for making communicating so much less stressful, haha.
