Auroris wallapaper-shadow
Okay, so, Clip Studio Paint/Manga Studio is the best program I've used for painting, and Frenden's brushes have made that experience even better. The previous version of this is one that had been kinda bugging me, because while Mischief is GREAT for drafting and not having to worry about the final image size, it's harder for me to actually paint with. So, since Auroris' birthday was coming up, I figured I'd repaint the lineart I'd done so he could have a wallpaper that didn't look awful. (I was only a day late when I sent it to him, whoo!) I also added the Sanctuary logo (with placement nearly as hilarious as that time Sonnac stood in front of that painting), and...okay see look I skinned half his face because he very specifically did not say "no" when it came up, and then I added the shadow coming out of it to join the rest when I remembered that visual was literally IN THE SAME IMAGE to make it more of a personalized cool factor kind of thing instead of me just getting to go WHEEE MUSCLES...

I probably shouldn't be writing descriptions right now, I'm too rambly. The takeaway I got from this was: if you are having issues with wonky proportions, try removing the skin! The results may surprise you! Or not, because exposed muscle rides straight past the Uncanny Valley into the Weirded Out Mountains.

Hey!! Thanks for following me here! Glad to see a familiar face (and look at your adorable cosplay). I missed seeing you! You going to be around this year at AX? (: I will be reprising Furiosa.

Yeah, no problem (and thank you!)! :D I missed you, too! :heart: (Have I mentioned that I'm TophreBaines on twitter? I can't recall. It is my most inconsistent username. >_>' And I'm not very active, but I have been quietly cheering you on there! :heart:)

I will be going to AX, yes! It's the one con I go to every year. I'm not sure what all I will do, but I definitely plan to do my warboy again. (I'd also like to do pre-serum Steve Rogers, but I still have to find/make everything for it, so that might not happen. Do they even make army pants in tiny bird person sizes?) I'm considering doing my warboy for two days despite how long it takes to put on, 'cause it's my absolute FAVORITE cosplay I've done so far...and I'm really tempted to just go ahead and shave my head for it this time. I figure it would be worth it, and last well enough for two days. Most likely saturday and sunday, so monday can be a lazy day.
