12/03/21 – What I’ve done in march so far

I’m going to try and keep doing a thing where I post what I’ve done each week outside of comic pages – mostly sketchbook work I suppose – although this week I’ve been doing more watercolours since I got the pages finished early. I read Witchblood #1 from Vault Comics (thanks M. Erman for sending the preview) and immediately had the desire to paint Yonna – and that kickstarted the joy of painting again.

I feel like my creativity is finally coming back – although I’ve not had many ideas for more full illustrative pieces. I guess I don’t mind since I already have enough on my plate with the things I need to do for the kickstarter campaign. One more SFW postcard to do (Adena) and then I have the more spicy ones to start work on – I need to re-do the pochades. I got a bit impatient and it all started bleeding and I couldn’t get the skin tones right.

Still, what I am thinking at the moment is doing a series of ‘fake’ comic covers to start building a portfolio and getting more practice for finished pieces in.

Other things done;

  • Migration to a new web host
  • Applying for SMH’s Mentorship Programme (fingers crossed)

The Final lullaby volume 1 is being kickstarted

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/fefe/the-final-lullaby-vol1

i’ll be hitting launch on Sunday during the 7pm stream I usually do on Twitch. It’s generally a more chill affair so it’ll make a nice change to be on edge for the first few hours of the campaign ahah!

I’m excited – it’s been hard to get a much done while waiting for approval because this is my first kickstarter and the little voice that tells me I’ve messed up has been a little louder than usual – but now things are kinda settled and I can enjoy Saturday for real now.

But I’ve also been cracking on at the pages – and lemme tell you – I’m having a lot of fun with the ‘style’ of keeping colour to magic use only
