I’m teaching myself to paint digitally in Adobe Fresco, and lately the Boy and I have been sharing videos of caracals and their crazy ears. This is the first character design I’ve done that’s 100% digital. I started with a pose reference photo of a violin player and built up from there.
My first attempt at a long-form comic, Castle Whatsitsname, included a “wise old wizard” character with funny eyebrows. When I began to revise the story, I realized we didn’t need another Gandalf/Obi-Wan/Dumbledore, but we sure could use more venerable old women.
