So art happened! I even streamed a couple sessions, though the second time I kept dropping my connection. And while it took quite awhile, I did finish it.
Also: HAPPY FLOWER CAKE.
The next one, despite what I said earlier, I may actually attempt to do entirely on the iPad Pro. I think part of my problem is that when I run into “oh this doesn’t work the way I’m used to” problems with those apps is that I’d sooner just shoot the file over to Blastoise rather than dig in my heels to find a workable solution where I am. I mean, I know in the big picture both units have to work together for a high-quality, well-polished piece, buuut… I DID get this thing so I can draw on it, you know? And I should actually try to DO that rather than just make a token scribble and then fall back on Blastoise since it’s more comfortable/less intimidating there.
This had been dangling at the ink phase for over a month. One sleeve of Oreo double stuf and a mug of milk later and I’m burning through Painter like I’ve got a freaking power star.
Hikaru and Deeum are about to lay waste to a Dragon’s Nest. No humans allowed! That means you, Chelsea. :(
Now I go and spend the rest of this Oreo high in Diablo 3 before Robert goes to work. :9
If I were to start inking that pile of junk food now, I’d be here until at least 9. And with this awful demon chair… no.
Besides, uh… later I’ll have real-life reference materials for at least the muffin tier. Yeah.
Ugh, being reduced to single-display mode sucks. Sure, it allows me to focus better, but I hate having to alt-tab to check reference images and such. Boo. That said, it’s WIP time after a loooong break from the Ramen, and it’s the long awaited “junk food” piece:
When a dragon’s gotta eat, she’s going to eat. At EPIC proportions.
Deeum has something that she makes Velan prepare every so often… the “Dragon’s Nest,” a platter of sweets that no smarmy human could hope to conquer (though they’re damn welcome to try). Donuts, muffins, twisted/glazed bar donuts, marshmallow squares (aka Rice Krispy Treats), Twinkies and, on top of it all, a glazed cinnamon pull-apart bundt cake. If that doesn’t sound evil, I don’t know what does.
Hikaru joins in for this session of face-stuffing (dragons gotta fuel the regen somehow). As much as she hates that this requires another kitchen explosion to create… well… you can’t say no to a mountain of sweets. Woe unto anyone who dares to steal even a single piece off that pile. Even if you’re Chelsea. (I would also think that Numair would know that it is NOT worth being subject to a Deeum-brand clobbering… Hikaru would probably just glare him into the floor and, uh, not do anything to help. Yeah. that’s right.)
There’s still some things to be added in (like the couch and the milk/coffee pitchers and such) but you can see where my priorities were in this wireframe. :P
Why do I do this stuff at 3:30am? Ahahaha.
