Aaaaaaa–this was meant to be a doodle but I got caught up in tiny details that are really not visible. I’m super late to the party, too but I wanted to contribute to all the pretty YGO Merfolk!AU that I’ve seen @jackthevulture do so much fanart of! Just as an aside: I really love all of Jack’s super well thought out fish people designs (especially long eel Baku) I just reALLY WANTED AN EXCUSE TO DRAW RYOU AS A TRANSLUCENT GHOSTY JELLYFISH.
(Also–thank you (again) Jack for inspiring me to get off my butt and draw things even if it’s just ygo fanart.)
Wow! I’m almost done with the thumbnails of chapter 1 with a whopping total of 32 pages! It’s taking so long because I think I’m putting a little too much effort into them
But in the long run it will be worth it! I’ve taken pictures of all the pages and have been organizing them a bit in Photoshop- readjusting the panel layout and making sure everything flows, that kind of thing. With all the detail it is sad when I scrap a panel but, for the ones I don’t, I end up having a clear image to work from and can focus more on the composition than worrying about the character’s pose, expression etc. which I believe is very important. In total, there are 2 pages in the beginning I want to completely redraw. ^^
I included a pic one one of the panels because I love the emotion I was able to get! ☆彡
Another reason why it’s taking so long is because I have been absorbed playing Ratchet and Clank. OvO I absolutely love the new ps4 edition! hehe
Also, this might effect things a bit, I need a scanner. After I ink the pages traditionally I want to color them digitally and I don’t have a dependable scanner. I’m going to the mall today with my family (barns and noble buy 2 get the 3rd free sale!) and maybe I can convince them to go to Best Buy. We’ll see. I could order one from Amazon but I’ve never really owned a scanner and I know barely anything about them. 0.0;;
this is a quick, couple-hour paint-y practice doodle thing i did a few nights ago. thought about cleaning it up, but as usual, decided nah that’s too much effort and so i’m just gonna put it up here now.
