I have been reading Patrick Rothfuss's Wise Man's Fear, and I was inspired to draw some of the Adem mercenaries from the story. I don't use color often, much less traditionally, but I felt it was worth a shot, and I'm pretty please with how it came out. The blood red garb of the mercenaries is a primary trait that is a centerpoint of their design, so I had to include it!
I have been pretty busy over the past few weeks, between work, figuring out wedding plans, and getting stuff set up for the move and I have not made nearly as much time for myself to draw as I should have. Two weeks ago Kate and I went to Savannah to find an apartment, and were lucky enough to find a totally sweet spot that we both love, and pretty much fit every criteria we were looking for. This past weekend was spent looking at wedding venues, moving the remainder of my packed belongings to her apartment, and spending time with the family over the 4th of July.
All in all it was a pretty great weekend, but I have been jonesing to sit down at the drawing board, so tonight was more that just work, it was pure fun.
Im still working on the comic, updates will continue!
