…finished page one.
I wasn’t feeling so happy after finishing this page. Â Didn’t really feel in control of the shading with conte and charcoal… felt muddy. Â Even though it’s a fairly elaborate drawing, I still felt I rushed in places. Â Not happy with the figure and the vehicles, after all those sketches.
But… better not to pay attention to those negative thoughts and move on. Â Progress, not perfection!
(Still I might re-draw it at some point… MWAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHHHHAAAAHAHAAA!!!)
And I even had time to do some sketches of the next page.
just fine-tuning the composition/placement of architecture in the background:
Although I used ink-spatter technique in the bg of my first sketch of this page, and had ideas of trying different techniques from page to page, I think that’ll be too much, it’ll be cacaphonous. Â I’m going to stick with conte and ink again for this page. Â There will still be a variety of media, as I’m going to use acrylics for the images of the moon, but that should be enough. Â I’ll try the spattering again later, probably for chapter 3.
