Happy Saturday!

Blonde? Brunette? When she transforms what should her hair color be?

These days I'm leaning towards brunette -- her actual hair color, but I thought the blonde look was much more fun.

This is an older sketch I did on my now very old iPad using Procreate.

As for the current state of the comic. I am still working on new pages. Some of the pages have taken on more of a webtoons vertical strip. I'm playing with comics of different lengths. Whatever is needed to express an idea or series of story beats.

Nothing's off the table in terms of creativity right now. This also includes using 3D models and backgrounds, photographs, and drawings.

I have opted to keep things simple -- I'm not yet doing coloring for the actual comic. Most of the coloring comes in the form of applying a gradient map and calling it a day.

I'm still learning my way around Clip Paint Studio and relearning and growing my understanding of how I should work with the software to produce the results I want in a reasonable amount of time.

The 3D is rather extreme, but I'm using it to help me generate backgrounds, and hey, if I learn some 3D modeling, texturing, rendering along the way, than it'll make future work easier. Also any 3D assets I create that I can reuse -- such as settings -- will make my work easier down the line as well.

Beyond that, I don't have much else to add for this week. I hope you have a great and safe weekend!
