Have to wrap up a lot of work today, but may be will get to work on Two cups later in the day and post again. Here is a warm up sketch though.

Have a good day everyone =)

Starting with the coloring and lighting. Finished the 3rd draft of the fiction (Chapter 02) as well yesterday. Now I need to set up a website where these stories can sit before I start compiling the book.

Got my masks in place. Mostly to control edges later.

In terms of the mood, I want this image to be dreamy like the pictures of a nebula, which are high contrast and yet have an epic-ness to them, mostly because I want to emphasize the masks of the mind on a celestial scale, but not entirely sure of how to do that. But lets see, I’ll try and fail as much as I can, and eventually something will happen =)


Made a last set of adjustments and details and the missing details I’ll fill in while coloring. I am so happy that this thing is looking so trippy haha. But still not sure if this should be vertical or horizontal. Always something!

Between work and this assignment it got a little hectic over the weekend. By yesterday morning I felt so tired and life things needed a lot of doing haha. Even though I had planned to finish the detailed line-drawing by today, it didn’t happen :( Will try and finish this along with the masking now. I think I will write a little about balance in life for myself.

Cleaning up the lines and making notes around things that I can identify are not working. Definitely needs big picture changes at this point. It all looks very organized, stiff and evenly placed.

But that said, will get done with the linework this weekend hopefully.


Managed to pull of some line work. Will hopefully finish it this weekend.

Cleaner composition. Next will clean up the lines, and this time around I might just start coloring as I am inking, just so I get a little more time painting the piece, rather then inking.

Usually, this is the stage that need not be shared haha, but since this is a daily blog, I might as well. It’s basically really really dirty sketches and mostly the same, with changes that I am quite sure only I can see. But in any case. Leaving it here.

The next chapter, chapter 02, finds our main character having blown up the dawn finds himself in a strange, strange world but not awake.
