Hello from me in the paaaast, oooOOOooo.

Scheduling this thursday night because I dunno how much time I'll have to get it all ready and stuff in the morning.

One of the few things that's been stressing me out these last few weeks has finally been dealt with, so.. there's the possibility after a day of decompression I'll be all gung ho about working on the comic again. We'll have to see.

I thought I would start sharing some of the art I was talking about, the 'fun' art. Today I did this one at work during breaks and lunch, it's actually a request from one of my Patreon supporters :)

So this is in the vein of what I'm doing when I'm not working on comic stuff. It's a little more fast and loose and I really wish I had done this for the comic or really knew how to capture this in ink work these days. C'est la vie :D

Last time I totally forgot the fishmen were once human and I will probably keep forgetting that in the future as well. Plus the font and taunts are kind of familiar for a good reason.
Maybe this boy is now one of Jaunt's fishbros? Heh. He said Hugh for example still has a lot of his human memories. Unless I am mistaken.
I know this is not exactly important, haha.

Have you ever considered trying monster design for games? Although finding such projects might be just as difficult. I know one guy here who kept drawing monsters like that until various companies contracted him for games and board games.
Again, that is probably just as much luck though.

Haha, yes, deep one hybrids do indeed start out indistinguishable from humans :)

We'll have to see who this might be, hmmm...!

I mean, I've applied to places but never heard back or been told 'you're not what we're looking for'. I can always just keep that up, heh.

That's great for your friend, though!

I wonder if this is the child of some icthyan horror and if he wee being teased for some irreversible in-born characteristic?

Hmmm, he's not not looking very Innsmouthy...yet? Maybe he is going to pop some gills.

It's actually YOUNG ONE but obscured behind his head. I wanted it to be as though he was waking up and only catching part of it, but instead I invented a new character??

Great comic page!

And the monster... somehow it doesn't strike me as a fish-man, but nevertheless, pretty monstery :D

(Also... even though it's not inked and cleaned up, I can imagine a comic page in this style. Of course it would be a major change of style an I'm not suggesting anything, I just say it would be good enough, as-is plus background, for a comic.)

Thank you!

It's actually a ghoul! Or my interpretation. I also toyed with the idea of giving it gnarly, greasy hair. I could maybe do a comic in that style, it's hard to say whether it would take more or less time. Hrm.

Your ghoul is worthy of Harry Dresden adaptations.

Did you layer on the water effects or is it all one panel? Whichever you did, it nicely conveys his current situation in the depths of that body of water.

It's a combination of overlay layers, painted background layers, and different texture effects. I had several scrapped attempts before I stuck to this one - I'm still not 100% pleased but I'm glad that it comes across at least :) Thanks!
