Aedre’s Firefly Chapt VII-14
Don’t you wonder what was said in the principal’s office after the big expose? The Principal himself doesn’t seem too sure of what’s going on either, and he was there.
Review: Girl Genius Online
I just want to say here that if you haven’t had the opportunity to read Girl Genius you are really missing out on not only a fabulous steampunk style epic story with a great heroine, Adventure, humour, weekly cliffhangers, Mad Science, Romance in all its permutations, monstors, clanks and sparks! And the art is drool-worthy fantastic! I’ve taken some time to catch up with the story during my vacation, and *sigh*, it’s so AWEsome! It’s been over a year now since I’ve take the time to see what the professors Foglio have been up to, and now once again I’m eagerly awaiting the next update.
This week I got a piece of guest art made for Bo Lumpkin. Though I attempted to make the buzzard as cute as possible, some things just have “fail” built right into them. :`D
I am pleased with the final pic though. You’ll be able to view it on Bo’s site one of these days. But for now, here’s the original rough pencil sketch:
Todd’s requested sketch (for winning the Christmas Caption Contest) is also finished. The sketch was created on 9×12 inch Strathmore Vellum Bristol in Copic Markers, then coloured using Derwent Inktense watercolour pencils, and inked over that with a Prismacolour brushpen.
I had an accident with Aedre’s hand and no way to fix it. (still have no opaque white). Sorry, Todd.
It’s pretty interesting using those pencils. I really like the vibrancy of the colours. On the left is a small section from the sketch as a teaser. Hope you like it, Todd!
I’m also (slowly) working on a tattoo design commission, creating it using my iPad vector graphics app. Lots of fun! And as usual, consistently sketching and working on new art challenges.
Next week I start inking the pencilled pages I still have ready for Aedre’s Firefly. The rest of this month is dedicated to editing “Night of Endless Stars“, my first nanowrimo novel.
I’ll be mailing out your sketch within the next few days, Todd, if we can manage to get to town. The snow is gone for now. But it was a White Christmas and New Year here for awhile.
I’ve been slowly catching up on reading my favourite indy comics online, and also Andy Goldman’s serialised novel “The Only City Left“. Great stuff!
Thanks for reading Aedre’s Firefly and for your encouraging comments! <3
My hope for you all is that the new year is treating you well!
