Nothing So Simple - Chapter 9

The cover for chapter nine of Between Places. I don't generally make a habit of doing "showing off mad art skillz" chapter covers that look nothing like the comic art... usually I go very minimalistic and lazy with my covers, in fact. This, though, looks like the comic art... if I polished it. So I figure it's okay, even if it doesn't go with the more minimalistic covers. I wanted to do a more complete, finished, polished painting since I haven't done one since After the Storm... which really has a lot in common with this picture, I think. >.>

So anyway. Saerin. Costume change. Considering I've drawn her in the same costume for most of her existence, that's kinda weird! But I like it... it fits her... and I wanted to give her a different outfit as it's a flashback.


Hope you guys like it. :)

I adore the way you make your pictures look like... how do I say it. They look so professional, the lights are perfect, and you have such a personal style that I kinda envy you for that... in a good way :)

This is incredible. Like, I have no words. The light is spectacular. The mountains are awesome. Saerin looks so sorrowful and alone. :( I just love it, so much.

Practice makes perfect. I've been updating a webcomic three times a week for two years. I couldn't have done it two years ago... I only can do stuff like this because I've been constantly pushing my art skills. :)

I meant about the tablet and photoshop. ^_^
I'm not really a toonist/comic artist. It's not my calling (even if I do adore reading them).
