I think this page might well be the biggest art disaster I’ve had since page 21 in which I ended up redrawing three quarters of the page. This wasn’t quite as bad, but for some reason it’s ridiculously hard to draw someone with their foot up on their knee. Much harder than drawing an airship landing as it turns out. Who would have thought?
When I couldn’t get it drawn in pencil, I resorted to sketching with watercolours, and when that turned into a mess, I scanned said mess and drew over in Photoshop for about 12 hours until it stopped looking like a mess. Then, typically, I spent less than two hours on the colouring, and it was done. I swear, if I could just hire someone to do the lineart, I could update daily.
Also, somewhere in the middle of that I managed to slam a door shut on my drawing hand*. This slowed things down considerably, as you might imagine. /whine
*Note from the future: My hand recovered within mere days, despite the whining.
