Its Wednesday! I would like to answer some questions and draw some characters to unwind from my busy day at work before I jump back into working on the Prologue redoes.

Inside the Character’s head questions, General World Questions, or ask your own questions.

These are a couple of California Coastal mermaids. I have fond memories of seeing the fish and shark I based these on while snorkeling off of Catalina when I was younger.

I’ve posted the garibaldi mermaid and surfer before, but not the leopard shark mermaid and skeleton, due to never getting good pictures of the piece. (I’ve had constant issues with the glass glare and with how the piece is built means I can’t take it out for a picture. I’ll be replacing my glass for my papercuts with glare-free glass in the future.)

kingoftreno asked:#8, Roran; #8, Berwyn (because it looked cool and why not)

So quite a bit of Roran that I’ve drawn has been him in the more formal Hearts style- here’s him with some embroidery and getting annoyed as he tries to pin his Cheshire summons to his cravat.

And then some Berwyn in fancy Wyndr clothing, probably one of the last times he would have worn it, which would be before he received a clock heart. His personality from before he got stuck in Hearts and the present story is quite different-he’s gone through a lot in that time.

KingofTreno: #9, roll the dice and pick a Roese kid we haven’t seen much of yet.

This ask is broken up because it has multiple pieces.

I pulled out my 4-sided die and went by birth order-the first five rolls were 1 (Roran) and then I finally got 4 (Davena). One of these is pulled from my prologue redoes that I’ve had open in photoshop.
emotions:  crying-annoyed at a brother-playing with something really cool


Still taking more questions and picks, but they will likely be worked on tomorrow.

raevenote asked: Alice in a funny hat :) (#19)

Because Alice ends up in Clubs at one point, and these funny ‘hats’ are found there.

Anonymous asked: 18 the queen as a kid/adult

image

Here is the Queen of Hearts at about Alice’s age, during a period of her
life that will be shown later on in the comic. The monocle she wears as
an adult is not because of natural decline of eyesight, but due to an
injury she had around this age.

I’m open for more questions and draw OCs!

The complete set of redesigned outfits for page 5 of the Prologue redo.

I enjoy writing and drawing this family so much and sometimes I feel bad about their fate.

I’m messing around with some alternate outfit ideas for the Roese children as I plan out the prologue redo. Since I originally drew the prologue, I’ve figured out why the entire Roese family is together during the events of page 5, and giving them variations of their clothing styles for the location helps support the future scene that will touch on said events.

(also, Alyn would totally overheat in Hearts if he wore his normal Spades clothing there)

I’ve been looking at this comparison lately. Just over a year and a half of work separates the first 6 pages and the recent pages, and there is quite a bit of improvement as well.


There’s so much visual development work that happened after the Prologue, and I’m so glad I am reworking those pages for print (slowly but surely).

Hearts of Roese just updated!
Read the new page, or start from the beginning.
Please reblog if you enjoy the comic, it helps spread the word!
One of my favorite characters is now officially introduced, so that’s a thing that just happened.

I was just pulled off of the Artist Alley waiting list and stuck on the floor for WonderCon.

Aaaand I’m just sitting here going “NOTHING WILL BE READY”

Testing out some new brushes. I bought the Frenden Photoshop Brushes today, and they are super nice.

While only one or two might work into Hearts of Roese (I have a specific set of brushes that I try to keep to with it) There are other projects that I’ll definitely be using the rest for (like the one I used as a tester above)
