Some good news for you and me:
- My tablet is back. The technical department of Wacom was super quick, so I can work on the comic again.
- My patreon is open! If you want to support me, now is the time!
I dealt with registrations, certificates and the tax office today. And now I am supposed to do the paperwork every month so I changed my patreon to the month patronage. I will be drawing pictures every day and I will submit comic pages any time they are done. I haven't been making many comic pages because of my school and my work last months, but I move slowly, but steadily forwards and I can promise the daily doodles.
If you don't know how patreon work - it is a service that helps you support your favourite artist in a form of donations - per month or per work. You can donate as much as you want and there are certain gifts for each level of patronage.
If you decide to support me, you would be rewarded with pictures of my super charming cat every week:
These pictures are rewards for all the patrons. If you decide to donate more than 3$ you will get WIPs and sketches of my pictures. Donators of 5$ or more will see line arts and WIPs of comic pages.
For a 10$ donation you can get a chibi of your character:
For 15$ you will be rewarded by a sketch of your character:
For 30$ is a reward colored sketch of your character:
For 40$ is a digital full figure of your character:
And for 50$ is a digital portrait of your character:
Does it sound promising? Take a look at my patron page: http://www.patreon.com/lysandra
...I know, the cat is the best reward of all. Here is another one:
And if you want to be sure, that I really WILL be drawing daily, take a look at my daily doodles archive since 2013: http://elfpluscats.tumblr.com/archive/
It's been a month since the last comic page, so I think that I should write some news post again. I have some bad news and some
rather good news. The bad news first:
My Wacom Companion stopped charging few weeks ago. It turned out that it is an official technical fault of Companions made until 2014, so I sent it to Germany for repair. I should get it back in approximately two weeks, which means no comic page until then. This problem is also the reason why I have drawn so many pencil sketches lately. *sigh*
The other news: I turned 28 (oh gosh, I am so old, time is running so quickly), but this year I am too busy with school and work that I even didn't throw a party. Buuut I took it as an opportunity to update my art progress sheet. It's been six years since the last update, and now look at it - I've been taking drawing seriously since 2003 - and it is also the time I originally started the first version of my comic. It feels like I am getting somewhere. Have a look at it and be amused with Mortifer with a dove. Yes. I really drew that. It was a wallpaper and it was epic.
And now a summary of pictures I drew since the last news update:
I bought Studio Clip Paint and it's excellent for digital painting. Need to practice landscapes more when I get my tablet back.
...and also great for portraits.
Not many chibies this month. Cos drawing them on paper doesn't feel the same.
I created a new character called Sall Faech. I didn't expect to have such a pleasant character of a Laerin heritage (aka water elf). Laerins are the most violent and cruel tribe of elves. And Sall is a pleasure to write. Quite intelligent, sympathetic and good willed. I guess that I shouldn't keep prejudices against own creations. (What will I do next time? Dark elven mages loving cats? Nope, that's my life motto. Dark elven mages hating cats? Damn. Already have done it.)
Too many sketches.
These two are quite old character. One changed for the better, the other for the worse.
And the last are my sketches from school. My pink highlighter is running out of ink. I have no clue why.
