Yay! I have revamped, and now it's going to start. Not soon... I make no promises on that. In fact, don't get antsy. This is just a teaser, and I probably won't get any real pages out for like... a month or so. Why? Because I'm still working on BS and a couple other illustrations. So just be patient and wait like good little bunnies do :D

This is pretty much how my "cover pics" are going to look. I like how the title came out ^_^

EDIT: I changed the title so it doesn't have that 3D look anymore so it subtracts less from the main focal point


Oh yeah...

Media: Photoshop 6.0 and Graphire 4x5 tablet
Time: No clue. Maybe 8-10 hours

Adorible! I love Joanna in the center of the chibis, doing her flip-out-fan-girl mode thing. XD
ftepainting's avatar
Wow... didn't even notice that she was in the center... O.o

It is because I am the Center of All Things. ;) Naturally.

Wow, the colors, folds and hair look fantastic. And of course your awesomely cute little chibis too. I just have to say...the title. OK, I'm sorry, I think that in comparison it just looks really out-of-pace. The three-dimensional quality of it just makes everything else look way too two-dimensional. I just don't like it, sorry. ^^;

Meh, well it's the first attempt to making it look anything like presentable, so it's a work in progess, pretty much like how the comic was when I first considered making it longer than the short blurb it was. I assume that the quality will get better as the story progresses.

I think that it would look fine if it didn't look so 3D. That's what makes it look out-of-place. If you still want to use a cool effect, I would suggest sticking to something simple like a drop shadow- that way it stands out, but not too much.

And of course, these are only suggestions. Feel free to ignore them! :)
ftepainting's avatar
Well I dropped the 3D thing, but then the drop shadow looked funky by itself, so now it's just flat, and I think it looks fine now.
AKuwaNeKo's avatar
It looks so much better now. I really think that it helped a lot with the composition balance. :nod:
ftepainting's avatar
Yeah. 3D ness just takes away from the main focus I think.
sayokitsune's avatar
:love: Omg, it looks SO COOL!! Nice work, my pet.

lol, thanks. I actually started the thing about a month ago ^^;
