Blood sweat and tears. Illustrating this was...I have no words for the horror I have experienced but I like the finished look of everything so maybe the torture was worth.
This will be the last time I’ll ever be drawing any scenes or characters from “Midnight” without a drawing tablet. I am happy to have learned how to paint with a mouse, but the struggles were too real this time.
I will most likely never do it again unless my life depends on it. I think I have carpal tunnel, and permanent back pain (no matter how many breaks I took).
So midnight was (and still is) a work in progress. Instead of full on storylines I’ll be drawing key scenes, and characters instead. The illustrated drawings look a bit (or a lot) different than the original sketches. I either removed parts of the sketches from the digital illustrations or completely altered them to a similar (but very different) thing. Here are the sketches for comparison.
