Over-dramatic much?

Don't get too excited. There will be a lot of simple talking heads like yesterday's. But I am planning to do more actual comic strips.

Hey, if Marvel can pretend their comic books are "All-New, All-Different," I can pretend that doing the same thing I'm supposed to be doing already is a big change too.

Expanded from “blue Jade” on my blog a few days ago.

I dug out an unfinished scene from last year and did a little work on it to make a presentable render.

Oops. Didn't actually do any artwork Friday. Well, I shot this at the last minute, but it's just a different angle of an old VDSD scene, with no lights, and it's basically Saturday now anyway. I've been reading about politics a lot, and not doing any art. :(

87 minutes ago: OK, so maybe I’m on a holiday from art a little bit.

Now:

OK, I did a quick render.

More mirroring:



I look at this and think, 'If this were a magazine ad for a wristwatch, I’d have to redo it.'

Sorry, no render yesterday, and this is all for today.

I'm thinking of using the "blackified" version of Ronnie for a little thing....

Oh, yeah, when I'm supposedly working on something, I probably shouldn't go off and not do any work for a day. Well, I need to remember that I can do simple, quick, extra renders and it still counts as a daily render.

His face reminds me of someone...

This isn’t finished yet, but I haven’t posted anything today, so...

OK, since I seem to have almost totally flaked out on art these last few days, and I can’t seem to think what to render today, I dug this out to post instead.

This is from November of 2012. I’d been doing art and comics with Ellery Petrezza, among other characters, for six months, off and on (mostly off). Ellery had quickly become kind of a star of the comic strip in my mind. And her tomboy attitude was a major, defining part of her character.

I think a big reason I started playing around with an Ellery ‘inversion’ was her arms. Ellery’s arms are shorter—actually smaller overall, relative to her torso—than the standard for a Victoria 4 / Stephanie 4 figure; and I kept worrying that I’d made her arms too short, and that that would cause problems. (I think Ellery’s arms have worked out OK, but I used to worry about it a lot.)

So as a joke I made a version that used her basic design—for example, her face is the same under the makeup—but with certain design elements dropped or even reversed: the unEllery.

I composed this image, but I left it not quite finished; I wanted to fix a couple of very minor things in Photoshop. But it was a private joke that might not even make sense to other people, and not that important. So I didn’t go back and ‘finish’ it until today.

Two days until Jenny Everywhere Day.

Jenny Everywhere Day is August 13th. Submissions to Jenny Everywhere Day are open & welcome. (Of course you can always use her in stories and art, this is just to remind everyone that she exists.)

I know the renders lately have been really boring, I’m sorry.
