Storm W.I.P. - Step 3 - Panic!

I can't believe I'm going to say this but I'm still not done with this painting!


In this step, I inked the ENTIRE illustration--or rather--laid down the initial inkwork.

It may appear finished to you but I assure you it's not.

For one thing, it's all looking rather flat still. Some stronger shadows should do the trick.

Ah, and her hair. Ororo's lovely locks have been ruined ever-so-slightly in my attempt to add "interest". By varying the lines in her hair, there's too many thick and thin areas now and it looks off IMHO.

So the next and last step (*fingers crossed*) will be to bring on the dramatic darks, smooth out the hair, and add any finishing details.

Got. To. Get. This. Done!
