I am still alive! To keep a long story short, last week my living space was not breathable, and I was traveling in places with poor internet connectivity. Then THIS week, I was mostly bed ridden from whatever I caught the week before.
As such, I spent a lot of time either sleeping or watching way too much anime (I really want to complain about Sword Art Online now but I’m a year late to the party). By far the best thing I watched was Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo.
Oh god, what a good show. It’s The Count Of Monte Cristo in future-france-space. And it has this fantastic texture overlay effect I tried to mimic, which ensures you’ll probably not see anything that looks quite like it again.
Seriously, this is also an easy trick for giving detail to comics. I recomend the digital artists of us expriment with texturing out color blocks this way a bit, if you’ve never done it before. It’s sure to have interesting results, even if you don’t stick with it.
I drew this feathered dinosaur as the basis of a possible tattoo design, although now I think I’ll just frame it. It’s not based on any proper feathered dinosaur, more of a made-up critter. I’d be painting over the (waterproof) India ink line drawing with watercolor. Any suggestions for color schemes?
