Q:That 'Photos' drawing of Toph is beautiful - may I ask how you went about doing the lighting? Or showing a screen cap of your layers for it?
the bright/rim lighting (i assume that’s what you’re after) is
-one screen layer (or can be some other additive layer idk) is just regular painted rim light
-duplicate that layer
-lock the transparency and color it whatever color (reddish orange usually for yellow light)
-unlock the transparency and gaussian blur it
This is the best person on the internet. For reals yo.
I don’t know about you guys, but I see all these drawings of brooding super cool looking dudes, and I wish I could draw them… but the INGRAINED CUTENESS of my style makes that really hard.
Also sorry about the not so cool cool dude. I AM STILL LIMITED BY WHAT I CAN DRAW T^T
Also I don’t actually have a cintiq or anythin’ so that’s why the inappropriate arm shadow.

LIFE LESSON: DON’T LOOK AT MAJESTIC BIRDS STRAIGHT ON.
Tobias Capwell in his custom made armour, based on an effigy from about the 1450s. It is a beautifully tailored second skin designed to protect him while jousting or (with a different helmet) in foot combat.
Properly made armour does not restrict movement, armour like this actually has a greater range of movement than the human inside it.
For those of you unfamiliar with Tobias, he is a big name on the jousting international scene.
I made The Witches’ Daughters for Terrestrial, an anthology of earth-themed fantasy comics edited by Amanda Scurti. You can also read it at its forever home on my portfolio website.
The anthology debuted at SPX 2014, and now you can buy it here! It’s full of lovely comics and illustrations, and I’m very happy to be included in such good company.
