mintywolf: (moogle vickie)

Kicking off the second chapter in the same place the first one began.

I'm planning to keep returning to this pivotal scene in between chapters but doing so makes the change in my art style readily apparent, haha. I only started about eighteen months ago but I think the early pages are pretty embarrassing to look at already. (I don't know at what point it becomes obvious that I had NO IDEA what I was doing when I started out. The inception of this project was very sudden.) Who knows what it will look like at the end of this chapter.

Technically the beginning was last week, when I posted the cover:

Guardian: Part Two Title Page by DippyWerewolf on deviantART

In the beginning I thought it would be nice to have real-media covers and decided impulsively I should get some use out of the lovely watercolor pencil set I had been given but never used because I didn't know how. They are really nice pencils but frankly I still have no idea how to use them properly. (It is on my list of goals for this year.) But since I did it for the first chapter I had to keep it up.

I really prefer traditional media to digital for coloring but I usually don't have time and also my scanner frustrating refuses to pick up certain colors so it never makes it to the computer true-to-life. Sigh.
