progress is being made, but the title says it all. The devil is in the details after all…

Also, I’d like to get some feedback on how people are liking the idea of posting the progress of a piece. Is it a boring waste of time, or is it interesting? I always thought it would be awesome if artists showed their process more but maybe it’s just too self-indulgent. Anyhow, since I’ve started, I will continue posting progress on this piece until it’s done. No turning back now! But if people are not stoked on it I will discontinue said practice for future pieces. So yeah, just shout; I’m listening.

Okay, so assuming that you’ve been avidly following my progress on this girl+wolf piece, then the good news is I have an update for you. The bad news is I’ve made very little progress on it. Frankly, I’ve been lazy and haven’t been working on this thing as much as I should. Anyhow, this is where it stands. Far from complete, but certainly over the hump. I feel like the atmosphere and mood of the environment is finally going in the right direction. Time to tighten it up.

I’m having a hard time with the colours. Here’s where they stand so far. This may or may not be the basis for the finalized piece… I’ve re-done these base colours from scratch probably 4 times now. UGH.

fixed summa dem lines, roughed in greyscale tonal values, beginning the colouring process. I’ve stumbled upon a workflow with this piece that seems to give me nice results in a timely fashion. Between this post and the previous post there’s some magic-like trickery happening. I’ll hopefully make a post to explain the process I’m using at a later date.
