Rose and Elderberry

It's as done as it's going to get :

I'm reasonably happy with it.

Titania and Oberon - Nearing the end

I have to get this finished tomorrow night. I was late home from rehearsal tonight, and Lorenzo was going MENTAL when I got home ( he was overtired - AND he's figured out how to escape his cot, so that made bedtime extra challenging tonight ), and I finally had something to eat at around nine.

I did sit down for 40min and got a little more done though :

It's coming along - though it's not as cool as I wanted it to be. I think I might have a try of adjusting Oberon's clothes so they're a little more blue / purple - as the gray is blending into the background too much now.

Day of truth tomorrow !

Titania and Oberon - Background !

I'm not entirely sure of this background. I might try a different one tomorrow :

Titania and Oberon - Shading #3

Long day at work today - had a performance assessment evening to oversee. Made myself sit down and do a little more on the art before I crashed :

Some skin shading on the Queen of the Twilight Kingdoms done. Looking better already !

Titania and Oberon - Shading #2

Not much to say tonight. I like the way Oberon's cloak is looking though.

Titania and Oberon - Colour #3

Right - I've got one week to get this done. Added the rest of the base colour tonight, and started the shading process :

Titania and Oberon - Colour #2

Super busy yesterday and didn't have a chance to get to the drawing, but I got some more base colour down tonight :

So that's good. Time to get to my 250 words of writing now !

Titania and Oberon - Colour #1

Jeesh - been SUPER busy at work with the production, AND I've been doing this writing challenge as well, so that's cut into the art time, which has made me very unhappy. But I went to a TMBG concert last night, which was fun. Sure - I got effectively stood up as well, but that wasn't going to make me now enjoy seeing those guys ( it was so good ! ).

Anyway - had a little time this evening to tidy up the outlines and start to add some colour :

It's always exciting to get to this stage - the picture really starts coming alive.

I'm going to try using clipping masks with this piece ( which I've only just learned about in the last couple of weeks - they sound REALLY useful ). More soon - seeing as I have to get this done in two weeks !

Titania and Oberon - Vectors 6

Gosh, I'm tired.

Two nights of being awake from 2am is not great. Hopefully a better night's sleep awaits me tonight.

I have had some time to put in the art tonight :

It's coming along. It's nice to get Oberon's other hand in there - and the lower part of his body, even if it's just a sketch at this stage.

Titania and Oberon - Vectors 5

Only a little bit of development here this time - but a significant bit :

The only difference is Titania's raised hand. It is how holding a sprig of elderberry ( which does have some significance in the play we're doing - though I wouldn't want to spoil what that was ).

It's the best that hand has looked so far. I've been really struggling with her hands ( just in case you haven't noticed ! ).

Titania and Oberon - Vectors 4

As you might expect - more development of the outlining :

I'm not altogether happy with the state of Titania's hands.

Hands are REALLY hard to draw.

In case you didn't know.

Titania and Oberon - Vectors 3

And Titania makes an appearance :

I had to redo her arms - the first time they were way too thick. Then I had to re-size the bracelets. It's nice to start seeing the balance in the piece now though.

More progress :

It was fun doing the detail on the breastplate / bracers.

Titania and Oberon - Vectors 1

Able to spend some time today drawing the 'real' outlines for the T&O art :

I reworked the face and the ear - I think they look better now. The hands are going to be a pain.
