Storm W.I.P - Step 2 - Underpainting

By the goddess! You finally gave me color, Dean!

I set a new record for myself!

This is the longest amount of time I've put away a piece of art. Storm has been waiting ever so patiently to be finished! [Hopefully she lost track of time and is none the wiser. Shhhh.....]

It feels good to come back to this.

This second step was done over the weekend. I actually cried a little bit because this is the first real watercolor painting I've done in MONTHS.

Painting black skin is very new to me but I loved laying down the chocolate tones. Goes so nicely with the vivid blue background in my opinion.

Right now it all might look a tad unusual to you but will make sense once I add the black ink in the next and final step.

After over a year it's so very close to completion!

One year later.....

I wish I had a really great excuse like being in a coma for 12 months or that I'd been traveling across the globe or was abducted by aliens and living on the moons of Jupiter since last May.

But no, nothing quite like that.

It's been exactly a year ago today since I last updated this blog.


Not that one year later, silly!

A part of me debated whether to delete this blog altogether but I guess the other part that still dreams the dream wouldn't allow it.

For you see, deep down inside it still calls to me. The dream of being a comic book creator, playing around with ideas, daydreaming about superpowers. All of it.

But as evidenced by my main blog, sometimes life gets in the way.

I thought I'd put off posting here for a couple weeks. A couple weeks turned into several. Several weeks turned into a few months, which became half a year....up until today.

So I apologize to you dear readers for my absence here. I think I shall pick up where I left off and try again.
