The colors for today's page almost looked like this



before I combined it with an earlier pink color scheme I'd sort of discarded earlier.

Speaking of discards, here's the first attempt at the drawing, which was a nice creepy staredown face I thought, only I finally realized the proportions had kind of gotten away from me in all the black/white ink repainting I'd done on it; also it just wasn't a very feminine face; also since having it staring at me for a while I've realized I was using my hand mirror for facial reference too much, because it's at least as much a portrait of me as it is of Selenis. Gah! Super creepy 8ooo

I thought of a couple more drawing tips in addition to that huge screed I ended up posting in response to Lucid's question last page. Fortunately these two are pretty straightforward:

- After working on something for a while you can become blind to problems in it--or to opportunities!--so I find it useful to take a break for a while once I think I'm done laying it out (generally this is when I go eat dinner), and then come back to it with fresh eyes.

- No matter how late I stayed up working the night before, I don't take caffeine when drawing anymore, because I found my drawings were coming out impatient and jittery.

Selenis thinks "is that Thierry or Grizzly Adams?
ps - drawing is much easier with wine, everything just flows!
