I read all comments, but won't be able to reply to everyone. I try to at least answer any questions when I can.

Nautila Character Page 0.2
Update 0.2 on this page, adding my latest painting "Underwater Shiny", and some specific design highlights. Trying to refrain from using text to explain.

Trying to figure out different ways of highlighting stuff, or indicating details. I tried out several methods, removed some part, and ended up with these elements. Trying to focus mostly on the small things that can be missed, and leaving the bigger design parts up to just... looking at the painting hah.

Figuring out different ways of putting together character/reference sheet basically.

I may also use this for some stuff, or maybe it'll just get used by some of y'all to make Nautila eh?

I'm gonna hope internet remains mostly stable, it's been cutting out round these hours lately.
Time to act up my art practice instead and cut that not out or logic something
Underwater Shiny

I just kinda had to make her again. I thought she'd be fitting for a different idea I had, relating to cats and objects of their fascination. So have a little curious Nautilus Pony!

She's a fun OC to play with and I adore the reactions everyone has to her. Some funnily conflicted between hugging or not because slimy or tenties.
I even ended up throwing together a finer sketch with some previous paintings into a single reference/character sheet: Nautila Character Page 0.1

I suppose I should update that with this one. It'd be fun to see more of her, but I guess for now I'm responsible for doing that! If anyone wants to paint her, I refer ya to the reference page *hint* *hint*

The colour scheme also just feels comfortable, there's something fun about her colours against the deep blue, altho I went slightly adjusted in the intensity for this one (compared to previous)
This was a fun challenge for making her from a front view for once, and using her tentacles in more ways than just floating about.

Anyhow, hope y'all enjoy this little underwater adventure with Nautila!

I'll be vending at all of them! If you're heading over too be sure to stop by my table.
I was gonna type more. In other news, trying out the new DeviantArt looks. They're pretty nice, smooth, sharp, gonna need a bit of getting used to, but it's easier to make a fresh start on some things when it's not done alone. And Patreon decided to do it almost at the same time haha. Altho their's is a bit less drastic and more just the outer layer. DA's changes go deeper.

Last Saturday's art:
Zecora time?! Darn, that was a crazy energy Saturday, but worth the result.
Forest Stripes

Week's Recap

I can feel the convention prep building up, and not sure if I'm ready for it. Still got all my new posters and reprints to out together, my S&D book to get ready, and to at least paint some more things. I've been doing more practice than taking on project in all of this.
I did find time to make a little page for Nautila. Even if it doesn't get used, it's good to get some familiarity in with these type of things.

Next week's Plan:

It's the 2 week countdown until my flight for another con trip. Gonna be a 2 month one.
