I think I say that every week, but this time I really mean it! Finished painting, laying out, dialogue changes, and everything else fifteen minutes ago. This set of six pages goes up Wednesday, just before I leave for World Fantasy--and this is it until I get back to the east coast. I think I love everything about his set, richer colors, expressions, magic, characters--love the naiads, and Kassandra shows a tiny bit of her powers, and she has no idea what happened.
Another Saltwater Witch panel that's going into the next set of pages--148 - 153 now. I added two pages today with four more panels, including the one below:
I just finished the art and pages layouts for the next Saltwater Witch set--pages 148 through 151. I'm really happy with this whole set, a few problems I had to sort out going from print to visual. Kassandra has a scary side she feels, but she really has no idea what she looks like from the outside. She exercises a bit of that power in this set.
Check out chapter 7--and everything else: Saltwater Witch
I finished up page 147 of Saltwater Witch last night, ending with four Naiads (three of them here) ready for a showdown in a motel room in Nebraska. (That's where I do most of my brawling--Nebraskan motels). In my books, Naiads are river witches, freshwater witches, not always--but most of the time--at odds with anyone from the sea.
This is Helodes (left) Parresia (center) and Limnoria (right). Parresia sort of leads the group, but Limnoria's the most powerful of her sisters, which is also why she's the least worried when Kassandra shows up--and, if you've read Saltwater Witch (or Seaborn) so far, you know Kassandra's not just anyone from the sea. Perfectly capable of making mayhem. I did go a little bit out of my way to make Limnoria look like Holly Black--that's just how I've always pictured Limnoria.
