wowza. Hey Ashley, for drawing these pages have you been doing all the wavy bits on the ground and background over and over or have you developed some sort of method of drawing these that doesn't take half a lifetime? (I guess I mean the texture I'm having trouble describing it)
The backgrounds are first generated with a program called Mandelbulb3D and then warped and arranged to fit a layout drawing in Photoshop, and then touched up with painted effects and light and the character art. It actually was not so very time-consuming since I planned everything carefully first.
Aww. Last time I was at a beach, I made friends with a bunch of fish who were doing pretty much the same thing. As far as I can tell, I was kicking up something in the sand that they wanted to eat, or something.
Oh man, that multi-post gives me a bit more of a crazy stalker vibe than I was going for with the already overzealous content. It was an accident, though, the comment didn't seem to be posting properly and I'm a bit dim.
