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!

Il est toujours intéressant de voir l'évolution d'un travail. Bravo pour le vôtre.

I hope you still like it once it's done!



Nothing to be jealous of just yet. It's far from finished but thanks regardless!

I appreciate hearing from all of you!

She definitely has come a long way from the pencil sketch. Great job! Keep at it!

Dean Grey said...


This painting is taking FOREVER!!

Hopefully I can get it done before the year ends.


Jules said...

Just under one week left, then, Dean! You can do it!

Merry Christmas!

Dean Grey said...


Thanks for that, girl! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas too.

Yes, the OCD in me wants this painting completed before the new year starts.

Only time will tell if that happens or not!
