A small look at some of the art in the upcoming chapter of Zatswan, the cosmic fantasy multiverse adventure. This is just one panel, it's just at a really large size in this image. There are other pages ready, but I'll release in accordance with my schedule:

I went through all my earlier work (the chapter 1 stuff you will find on page 1 of this thread) and revised all the pages, which was a big job. I've been working on it off and on for the past... maybe two weeks.

I de-saturated the colors, so they're not blaring, and changed some of the coloring on the physical original pages. I changed the gutters on the pages. Many of them are still colored, but I learned that to do colored gutters well (in my opinion, at least), it's best to do either very light colors or very dark. The comic is still colorful, I think it always will be, but the colors are a lot softer and less offensive.

I fixed anatomy issues. At least the ones I found. Of course, I redid the cover for chapter 1, which I did a while ago. I uploaded all the files again and overwrote the old ones, so the new ones are the ones that will be there in this thread ... unless the old ones are still appearing in your browser's cache, in which case you'd need to delete your history.

Just to give a visual idea of what went on, here's a back to back comparison of the old version versus the new version of an especially colorful page:

Zatswan, the stardust guardian returns!

In between doing new pages, I'm also redrawing my older pages in chapter one to make the whole project look nicer. That part of the book is especially critical since it's the first chapter. It actually doesn't take that long to do, since I already have the main template of the page set up.

Here is a new version of page 10:


Here is what it used to look like:

I finished another redone page from chapter one. These two pages work in direct sequence. The page that has been most recently redone is the second. I will continue redoing chapter one pages while working on new pages. I've found it doesn't slow me down.





I don't often say much about the artwork I do, so I'll give it a shot. The second page (the new one) gave me the opportunity to use my C'aran Dache Musuem Aquarelle watercolor pencils, which I recently bought. From what I saw in video reviews, they are the best watercolor pencil on the market. I recently bought some and I can say that I agree with that. I'm familiar with the top brands (with watercolor pencil work, I have been using Derwent Watercolor pencils and Faber-Castell Albrecht D'urer most often), and the Museum Aquarelle is the best.

The first page shown here was done largely with Derwent Watercolor Pencils for the characters and Crayola Supertip water soluble markers for some of the backgrounds, and while nice, those tools aren't as good for me. Nothing really compares to the Museum Aquarelle. So, it was fun playing with these tools and seeing how they perform for myself.

I have some Holbein Artist Colored Pencils coming from Japan, which are also relatively very expensive, and said to be really good. I am excited to see how they perform. I've been curious about trying them for some time.

Many of the stars in the second picture were done with Sakura Moonlight Gellyroll pens, which are trusty tools of mine I use often. I prefer the sparkly Stardust Gellyrolls myself, but their sparkly effect doesn't pick up well in a scan. The Moonlight Gellyrolls excel at working against dark backgrounds.

The lines were done mainly with a dip pen and Higgins Black Magic ink. I used to use technical drawing pens more often, but I've found that recently I don't like them as much for numerous reasons. One example is if you need to ink over pigment to strengthen your lines in case your pigment faded some of them while coloring, the technical drawing pens don't work well AT ALL for that, and you can even damage the nib of your pen.

The second page is battle against Final Boss. DON'T GIVE UP!
