UPDATE: I changed her mouth a bit, made the lips fuller, and added a few more highlights here and there.
Ugh, slow going what with upgrading to Windows 7 and CS4 and, quite frankly, playing too many damn video games. I figured I post a small portion of one of the panels on the next page of Steamvolt. This is a new character that's getting introduced.
See?? I'm working!!!
Her appearance may change a little more as I keep working on it. You always want to make sure the appearance of the character fits their personality, and vice versa.
Might make her mouth a little larger, we'll see. I like the freckles though. I'll probably leave the details a bit rough, since this is just one corner of a panel.
I tend to work on pretty big images (the base page size I use is 3000 x 4500 pixels), so once they get shrunk down to proper display size a lot of details get lost. You can kind of see some of my sloppy work here.
