Really happy with the way this turned out. Here's another Saltwater Witch page I painted entirely on the iPad in the Brushes app and Sketchbook Pro--hopping back and forth between them to use different tools.
Just posted the latest page--page 228 (Page 211 in image file names, but that's because I have a bunch of page 12a and 12b's, and it messed up my nice consecutive order).
I'm really happy with this art. Finally...finally! I'm getting to the point where I can draw and paint a whole page, then letter it in under four hours. I started last night, spent a couple hours, and I just spent another hour and a half this morning.
I'm also playing with the lettering again. I really thought it would be cool to have an upper/lower case font which sort of looked like Kassandra's own hand, but...what do I know? It didn't turn out that well, wasn't nearly as readable as a any of the good comic fonts out there. (Blambot's the best source I've seen for lettering and effects text)
I'm really excited to tell everyone that I'm in ARTSPROJEKT, "a curated platform that empowers emerging and establish artists and brands to connect, collaborate, and showcase original art, designs and ideas with fans and consumers." --and I'm in here with a lot of extremely talented and imaginative artists.
I'm going to be doing all kinds of cool product designs, but to start off I have a few different iPhone and iPad cases I want everyone to hear about. (iPad, iPhone 3G/3Gs, iPhone 4 cases). I'll be adding new designs very soon, so check back.
I'm still putting some details together, but I'll be running a contest to win a Saltwater Witch iPhone case (iPhone 3G/3GS or 4) as well as some other cool prizes. Stay tuned for that, too--and if you have any contest ideas or prize ideas, I'd love to hear them.

Below there's a shot of the iPhone 3Gs case--this is a Speck® Fitted™ Hard Shell Case, really kick-ass case for your phone. Closeup of the case, "Saltwater Witch"
Finished painting this last night, about three hours in Art Rage. Spent another hour lettering. Just posted the page on Saltwater Witch, Kassandra looking over the army that is going to be sent to kill her. They don't need to eat, they can't disobey, they fight until they're "dead", and there are a freakin' crapload of them.
