I love how you convey the textures of different materials (leather v.s. cloth v.s. wood) in your line art. <3

Thanks for all the kind comments, guys <3

@Shadeflame I use photoshop and a Wacom Intuos tablet. This is the only program and tablet I've ever used, so I'm not sure if there are better ones for beginners (probably took me three years to really figure out photoshop.. and I'm still learning), but they worked for me when I was starting out and I still use them 6 years later. Good luck- digital art is a lot of fun so I hope you find something that works for you!

Another finished artwork for an Instagram DTIYS art challenge belonging to juu.draws. I actually really like how it turned out- and the detailed character design was so much fun to work on. :)

More Kassia art..

Image

This is my new favorite panel. Finally figured out what style and colors I want to use.

The first two episodes of my comic were honestly kind of sloppy because I was still figuring out my process, and I made a TON of mistakes. Art-wise, the colors I was using looked grey, washed-out, and ugly, but I think I've reached the point where I like my current style for the comic.

A part of me wants to redo the first two episodes completely so I can make them prettier and improve the dialogue and plot, but I know I can't spend a million years trying to redo everything and make it perfect, so I'm just going to move on with the story and try to learn from past mistakes so the newer episodes will gradually get better and better. It's frustrating, but this is my first comic, so I guess it's a given that I'm going to make a lot of mistakes. Welp. I'm learning stuff, so it's okay lol.

Sketch dump. More comic stuff.

Middle sketch is an angry Kassia. Also introducing Teo (blue-eyed guy) and Beyren (ponytail dude). Teo's a side character, Beyren's one of the five main protagonists.

Beyren's the "mom" of the group. The friendly and charismatic peacemaker who hates conflict but fights out of necessity.

Still not sure about his character design. He's been the hardest to get right, but I've probably redone his design about a bajillion times by now, so I think I'll just stick with this one. Drawing guys is hard. :p

Action scenes are SO HARD to plan out and draw, so that makes me really happy

I LOVE KASSIA'S EXPRESSION
