Werewolves on the brain

Psst! Hey, you! Ya like werewolves? I sure hope so! I’ve been thinking a lot about werewolves lately, and there’s a reason for that! Last post, I mentioned that I’m taking a break from work on Strange Company to focus on a short comic. It’s called Blythe vs. the Werewolf, and it features—you guessed it—at least one werewolf. The titular character of BvtW plays a big role in Strange Company. It takes place over a… Read more Werewolves on the brain

Setting the Scene: Designing an underground city

Art Challenge: Yearly Redraw

Let’s switch it up and break away from the planning and writing stuff this week. One of my favorite art challenges is the yearly redraw. It’s a great way to see what you’ve learned over the course of a year, and how your style and skills have developed. I’ve never attempted this before (at least, not that I remember) so I decided to take a stab at it. I dug through my digital art files… Read more Art Challenge: Yearly Redraw
