Panty Vigilante Chapter 4: A Progress (Part 1)

I’m making a huge push to get book 4 of Panty Vigilante done in time for Planet Comicon at the end of April. Since I haven’t been posting any sketches, I thought I’d share my progress on the cover art with you all.

(It’s my first attempt at a wraparound cover. I’m excited!)

 

Here it is halfway done with inking. I tend to freehand a lot of my inks, so there’s really not a whole lot of pencils to see. Mostly just enough to make sure things are placed where I want them and to get specific details right.

01

Finished inking! I’m working on two 11″x17″ sheets of bristol taped side by side.

02

Starting with color! I fancy pinks and purples with this.

03

Still working on the background, but here’s her face.

04

And here’s her face mostly finished.

05

And a picture of her skin finished!

06

Working on her hair here. The color differences is because the others were artificial light. This is what it looks like in natural daylight.

07

And her outfit is where I am at now! The size discrepancy in her hands is because of the angle that I took the photo from. I was trying to get my shadow out of the way. I promise she’s symmetrical. She does not have one giant hand and one baby hand.

I will probably be pulling a late night trying to get this done, so hopefully you will see another update from me today!

Planet Comicon 2016!

So Planet Comicon has come and gone. I realize I hyped it up so much on the Panty Vigilante site and, well, hardly at all here. But, yes, I was at Planet Comicon this year. It was awesome and I’m pretty stoked for 2017 now.

I debuted chapter 3 of my book Panty Vigilante on Friday, which was super exciting for me. It was a big push to get it done and printed in time for PCC.

I caught up with old friends and made new ones. If you met me at PCC and are visiting my site for the first time, welcome!

Anyway, I was behind a table for most of the time, so I didn’t get too many pictures. Thankfully my wonderful bf was there to snap a good picture of my booth (he also cooked me kick ass breakfast every morning before the con. Be still my beating heart!):

I also have some good snapshots of commissions from this weekend:

A sketchbook drawing of Power Girl, commissioned by my friend Ali Smith. She also runs an awesome convention in Manhattan, Kansas called Little Apple Comic Con, which I will be attending next February!

I’m not personally into furries, but someone asked me to draw their fursona. It turned out to be a nice change of pace and painting the fur was fun.

These three are caricature commissions from a couple who wanted a birthday present for their niece (who is a Slytherin fan), and their two daughters. Their daughters just liked superheroes in general, so they weren’t looking for anything too specific. I pretty much got to design whatever costume I wanted for them and had a lot of fun with it.

This wasn’t a commission. Just a sketch I did for fun of Jon Snow and Ghost at the convention. I ended up coloring it and I will post it later. In the meantime, here’s an inked version.

 

Anyway, Planet Comicon was awesome this year. I have a lot more to post, so stay tuned!

 

Also my next appearance is River Des Press Expo in St. Louis, Missouri!
