Fabulous work by other artists on Deviantart!

The Veligent Page 125
whoops forgot to de-saturate this right back...ok, there!
 I work on a really dark laptop so the colors look hideously garish on a regular monitor. I always need to knock down the saturation a lot!
 Ha,  I just noticed that Clovis's outfit changes color. Gotta fix that.
 This is the last page of chapter 3, but it felt too abrupt to have it be "THE END", so I am fooling around, trying to land a little more gently with another page after this one. I have no idea what I am doing. Should be fun.

    if you want to kind'a get an idea about what is going on,
 but don't have time to read the whole thing, this is a good page to go to:

 These are newly hatched  poads™ that I airbrushed like poison dart frogs.This is a grab bag edition , the color poad you get will be a mystery until you open the package! These are cast gypsum reproductions of my original sculpture produced by Windstone Editions. More info here:

June 2015 Windstone raffle prize by Reptangle
June 2015 Windstone raffle prize
Each month I have a free raffle for a weird Windstone piece. This month's prize is this Dappaloozonk unicorn. He's a gypsum reproduction of my original sculpture ( he's about 10.5 inches tall to the tip of his horn) I painted him  painted like a Appaloosa dapple zonkey. (With  grulla coloring too, but the name is too long as it is)
 Here's the blog about the raffle if you are curious.…

Journal History

I've been posting pages of "The Veligent" regularly for a couple years now, and I still don't have a clean,  logical, straightforward  way of working. I thought I would learn to be more efficient and "professional" as I gained experience, but no.  I still scribble stuff down ,(not nice drawings but messes), then I often do time consuming, elaborate art that doesn't fit anywhere, start over, change everything,  and schmarm something together at the last minute of my self imposed dead line.
 It reminds me of my first swimming lessons, when I was about 6. I learned to swim properly, and did it gracefully in the shallow end, but for the final test, we were supposed to swim across the deep end. I splashed and floundered my way across in a panic of dog paddling and every thing I could think of. Not clean and efficient, but I made it.
 That is how I get a page together
The story is the  deep end and I am paddling frantically to get through it.
 If I haven't gotten better at it by now, I probably wont .
Do you turn out comic pages on a regular schedule? How the heck do you do it?
