A couple of covers

Not much work on the comic this last week, but I have done a couple of cover pieces for my author friend Rish.

The first was more lettering, though I did mess around with the photo he sent me for the cover - layering in purples into the sunset, darkening the branches, and intensifying the setting sun. Worked out fairly well I thought.

Here's the original photo :

And how it ended up : 

The other one I was supposed to do a LOT earlier. I offered to do a cover for Rish's story 'Murdertown, 1 Mile'. I had what I thought was a really good idea, though when I came to create it, it didn't live up to my hopes for it...

 I was pretty unhappy with it, and I left it for quite some time. A couple of days ago I opened the file up and was struck with a way I could make it better -

I had to find some 'splatter' brushes on line - but that wasn't too hard. I'm much happier with the way this version looks !

First post for 2017 !

Been a long time coming ! I have been meaning to post thing ... but I just didn't get round to anything. Argh.

Still - it's not like I've been doing nothing. I DID spend too much time playing video games over the Christmas break though. I've given up video games for this first term in order to try and make more productive use of the time I've got.

I have made some progress with 'Tuesday'. Here are the current states of the three pages. Not long until the first ep. is finally done !

Pro Bono RPG illustration - Colour refinement

I didn't really like the star trails - even though I was very pleased with the idea - so I tried something else :

I like this better. The stars were too busy. I think I might need some more of the tuning lines towards the bottom of the image.
