i just finished my new ep! unusually for me, it’s themed around nature. also unusual for me is that they’re all originals! i’m really happy with how these turned out, and i hope they bring a little dreaminess to your day ♪
In which the all mighty Deku Tree tries to be hip
Decided to make a WIP gif of the quick intermission page. :D That one was pretty straightforward drawing work with really light ambiance animation.
1) As you can see from the initial layout, I ended up changing the composition/scene in panels 2 and 3 pretty drastically. I liked the idea of Patrick shrinking in each panel. It’ll make more sense as his character arc progresses! >v<
(Plus, I haven’t designed the characters in panel 3 yet b/c you’ll see them much later. The paintings are more indicative of that particular inn’s motifs, like the CloverHouse’s giant windows, the Helen’s elevator gate, and the Bio-Reverse Lab’s screens.)
2) Layouts, pencils, and character inking were done in Manga Studio. Backgrounds, animating, and text are completely done in Photoshop. I have templates for a lot of the design work, like stuff in the Helen’s elevator, as well as panels and text.
3) And here’s the page you see online, with the gif animation!
for next month’s Coaster Show at La Luz de Gallery
