Fall III: Inks

So here it is, the finished inking of Fall III. I still don't have my work space set up here in the new apartment, so I decided I'd improvise and take a picture of the drawing, since my printer isn't hooked up at the moment.

With each of the fall pieces, I try to do a few things that I don't do in my Air-Heart work. Most notably, I like to take the time to play around with textures and flowing line weight a bit more. I think it helps to give these illustrations a look of their own.

Unlike the previous fall pieces, in this one, I've decided to take "the girl" out of her usual urban setting, and put her in a more wide open landscape. When I first did the sketch, I thought of her as maybe being on a vacation somewhere a bit more serene than her usual base of operations. Perhaps she's on a fall foliage getaway...



Hey there! So, as I mentioned briefly in my last post, I was in the process of moving. My lady and I have finally got our own place. That said, I haven't had a whole lot of spare time to sit down and get to work. In fact, I still don't even have a desk set up for myself! How insane is that?! Regardless, here I am making a post at long last. Since I last wrote, I have begun working on my fall piece for the year (fall III for those of you keeping track) I'm hoping to spend a bit more time on it this week as I have a rare long weekend. I'm also going to be getting back to Air-Heart and hitting it hard. The good thing about being forced to take so much time off is that it gets me excited to get back to it! Ok, enough nonsense, I'll catch you this Friday with a brand new post!
