FINALLY FINISHED THIS PICTURE!

IT'S 3 IN THE MORNING!

BUT IT'S TOTALLY WORTH IT!!!

This is something I've been working on for a while. It's the celebratory picture for the launching of my web comic.

That's right people. We are now officially launched.

[link]

The name of my comic is Ears for Elves (hence the title of this picture ;)) please come and check it out. We have a couple pages up so far and will continue to post updates every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Feel free to poke around a bit (already added some extra content. :D) and enjoy!!

Thanks to everyone for their support so far! I hope you all will continue to support me in the future! :iconthankyouplz:

Now, I'm finally going to bed.

I hope this doesn't sound too crazy.

Drawing time- 12+ hours
Drawn, inked and colored with Manga Studio Debut 4

Woaw! Lineart is really good, painting too, and the background it's crazy O_O The foliage is awesome :la: I love it :) The only thing I thing it could be better is the tree, I think it could have more contrast (more black in shadows), but it's really good :D

Thanks! The bg was super fun to do but a little tricky. The only guidelines I put in were for where the mountains start. Beyond that I just went for it. Pretty fun. :D

The tree was something I was debating with myself with up until I finally pushed the post button. I could have given it more contrast but I was worried it would look too busy in the foreground and take away from the character (who is supposed to be the focal point).

Still not sure if I made the right decision. XP

I think the picture looks great, so it's a good decision :) That was just an advice for future pics :D I think the pic gets the focal point in the character, so you've succeeded :hug: I suck myself at painting backgrounds, I think it's one of the most difficult part of a drawing...

I used to dread backgrounds, too. But then one day I just said 'screw i't and went for it! XD

And now, even though they take forever, I really enjoy my nature-y backgrounds.

...It's the city-scapes I'm dreading... ^^;

Oh jeez, I don't even know.

I started with a couple concept sketches on Friday. Sketched it out on Saturday. Inked it on Sunday. And did the coloring on Monday.

Obviously didn't work straight though all of those days. That would be insane.

If I had to guess I'd put it in the ballpark of around 12 hours.

...Maybe I am a little insane? XD

You're not insane ;) just artistically inclined. Though, those two may be the same thing. XD

But, daaammmnnnnn. Nice job!! :D

I'm gonna blow your damn standards out of the water!

After reading my comic your previously 'high standards' are gonna seem like crap!

I'm gonna raise the bar and it's never coming back down!

I've now ruined you for every other comic for the rest of you life!!

Or something along those lines. :icondontunderstandplz:

Well AWESOME then! I guess if a comic was going to make me blind because I couldn't comprehend the radicalness of it, then I would certainly want it to be you.

1)Because you're awesome!

2)Because you're my bud and I can totally ask you to give my blind self some cash when you get super duper rich and famous. Which we all know will happen.

Yes, if I see you bumming on the street a broken pair of cheap sunglasses covering your blind eyes, dressed in dirty rags, jiggling a sad little cup and begging for change; I'll walk by in my diamond studded shoes, jewel encrusted tiara, with clothes crafted from the entire original Declaration of Independence itself, I may be able to spot you some.

But only if you take credit. I would not soil my super duper rich and famous hands with dirty peasant money.
