My Washington Family

You know how you have friends that feel like your family? They are the people that you choose to be part of your life for as long as you live. These are mine:

Almost done ...

I have been finishing up the inks on my CCS first year final project, The Third Dominion, Chapter One. It is good practice using nibs, mostly working on my hatching and stippling skills. Though, I got sick of how long stippling takes, so I made a texture pattern in Photoshop and will drop it in after I get everything scanned. It may be cheating, but it makes things faster and less frustrating. I am working on page 21 (of 24) right now, still have to rewrite and redraw three pages near the beginning, but I'm getting there.  I am planning on debuting the finished version at MICE, at the Quintuple Ruffle table.

I've been working on some presents for my friends back in Washington. Now I just have to mail them off, but I wanted to post at least one of them:

This is what we looked like to each other, everyone else just thought we were waving sticks in the air and tromping through the woods.
