Hey everyone, thank you for all the feedback on last week’s vote incentive. I’m really happy you’re liking the new style (If you missed the incentive you can check out the comparison on my patreon by clicking here). I’m still making my way through the portrait course, I had a bit of a setback the last couple weeks when my symptoms started to act up. Luckily, I seem to be doing quite a bit better, so hopefully I’ll be back on track soon.

When I shaded this page I was still somewhat relying on old methods, so the shading difference may not be as noticeable as it will be later on. Even still, I tried to pay attention to the lighting and wanted to define the shapes better with shadow, rather than relying on highlights to give depth, so hopefully that comes across. 🙂

Also, I have to admit, painting the water on this page was a lot harder than I expected it to be. I’m fairly happy with how it turned out, but it just goes to show that it’s super important to keep learning as you never know what might trip you up.

That’s all from me today. There’s a new vote incentive on TopWebComics, it’s one of the panels from page 414, vote to check it out.

Holly and Drew.
