Aloha mateys! Hope you’re all doing well, I thought I’d space the end of the last Elf Blood arc and the start of the next Mei Wu story with a little Extra of everyone’s favourite fox cub, Fliss. I decided to dabble a little in some blended shading, and I think it turned out quite nicely on her! Too time-consuming to consider for the regular comic though, I’m afraid, but still, nice to play around with!
Sunday was a lovely day – proper day of summer, you know the ones where you really struggle to keep cool and even the fan just starts blowing around warm air. Took the opportunity to get a little gardening work done, and cut up some old cardboard boxes for recycling. The real cherry on the top actually came on Saturday night – On Friday, I fell asleep at 12, as I was so exhausted from work, and didn’t wake up ’til 12 on Saturday afternoon. Naturally, I wasn’t able to get to sleep at my normal time, so I continued drawing well into the wee hours of the morning – and got to witness a thunderstorm 😀
Speaking of drawing, I’ve finally finished my first draft of Bonnie Words, the work I want to submit to a local comic publisher. It’s a good feeling, and I’m really looking forward to going over it and re-touching bits to polish it right up to standard! Say what you will about the disadvantages of being a dead-eyed salaryman, at least my artistic life is picking up again!
Anyway, there’s a bit more drawing I want to get done just now, so I’d better dash off for now. Cheerio, and I’ll see you on Friday for the cover page of the new Mei Wu story!
