Technique Realized

So the technique for blending I had used received some negative feedback among artist friends and colleges. While it may be stylistic, it wasn’t my perceived goal. Ideally something remarking of Western comic influence from 60s and 70s Marvel and DC was a goal. However I spoke with a few artists and realized a new look.

In the first image there is no easy transition of the shades to another. In the second image there is no noticeable texture, and finally in the last image both points are realized.

This is the technique I have decided to use for now for this project. I feel it will allow for a much more appealing and aesthetic work of art.

Cupid’s Rising Update 8-27-17

A new compact version of the novel is now available, it is cheapest if purchased through the publisher’s website, as amazon can expect to be 50% higher in cost. http://www.lulu.com/shop/leon-sandcastle/cupids-rising/paperback/product-23299283.html

Things have slowed a bit for production, but I feel a new wave of creativity coming.qrtdone I have started the slow process of blending the work. This one frame took about 4 hours to complete, it is a slow process but I feel it’s necessary for creating quality work.

I apologize that this week’s submission is one page short, but my schedule has been hectic these days.
