Very intense, great sense of imminent peril.

What's your method for doing backdrops and environments? Do you really just draw all of the architecture from scratch and then color, or do you have a way to take some of the weight off of that process?

For thiiiis. I had a whole bunch of photo references. I've got a pile of books containing photograph material from the 19th and early 20th centuries, plus lot of refs I've taken while visiting London and various other historical locations. Rookeries are something that don't exist anymore, so for this is was kind of case of making stuff up. I take bits I think will work and try to match them up.

There are no shortcuts. It's practice upon more practice but I find it so much fun. I'm constantly trying to work out ways to make it easier, but I also enjoy it so much I don't mind the time it takes. It's relaxing.

The top panel (which you can't see here but is visible on the website) was drawn on paper during some downtime last year (my brand new desktop's PSU died ugh). I've got some in progress tweets from that time! Later, I redrew the panel in CSP and coloured in Photoshop.

I often go into the nearest bookstore and wander around looking for inspiration, and it honestly didn't occur to me that I'd probably benefit an awful lot from photography books. And while it's kind of daunting to see just how far my skill needs to grow before it's at the point I'm currently striving for-- seeing your work and actually getting thought-out responses and feedback from you (who I'm honestly growing to admire more and more as an creator), is a huge treat and inspiration! 

Basically, thank you for all that. You are amazing and I'm super excited to watch Tistow and your progress!

♥ Real life experiences and just visiting places for the feeling can inspire so much.

Aw thank you so much! ♥ That's really sweet to hear. If you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, feel free to prod me. I can sometimes be a wee bit slow to respond but I will get back to you.
