    Day 435: Flagging Behind

    Designed a flag for Mr. Keynes, my Rogue Trader Seneschal. I wanted it to symbolise Wealth, Space and War. Feel like I did a good job! This was fun!

    So Thanqol, how would you rate your Wacom tablet? I've been looknig on amazon, yours has generally good reviews but some say that it broke quickly and that there's some input lag (0.25s). In your experience is it good, accurate, easy to use, robust etc.?

    I don't have anything to compare it against, but I've never had a single issue with it. It does exactly what I need it to.

    Day 436: An Old Friend

    Inking practise. After watching Archer, which was good, my interest in variable line thickness was rekindled. This was just a quick experiment at that with my old friend, Oda Nobunaga

    Part of Thanqol's existing Signiture, also.
    Meaning is quite clear, which is to say, the specifics aren't the important part of a myth.
    It's quite possible it wasn't literally raining and charger wasn't actually even outside when she got her cutie mark, neither was she necessarily nearly struck by lightning.
    (also, think Thanqol would like to see such a story completed even if it isn't historically accurate.

    It's masks all the way down and all of them are true, remember.
    I haven't designed a flag for a character in ages. It's always a cool thing to do.

    Day 438: Unlearning

    I'm completely spacing today; drew and painted for over an hour and nothing productive came of it. This is the only remotely presentable piece.

    Oh well. There are days like that. I'm meandering in the right direction. My major mental block right now is composition.

    Day 441: Skeletator

    Tried something completely random today.

    I am still not sure of inking styles I like, even as I continue to mess around with them. I think my next experiment is going to be thin and sketchy pencil lines rather than harsh black lines.

    Day 448: Conclusion'd

    Few minutes past the deadline, but Exalted session went overtime and the sketch happened well earlier in the day so all is good.

    We killed the First and Forsaken Lion! And we saved the world! And there were absolutely no civilian casualties! And my character can give up Necromancy and start researching non-omnicidal techniques for dealing with the world! An awesome season finale all round!
