So this is a redux of my original RIGs. See, the original ones were my first time working in EVA foam, they weren’t as sturdy as I wanted them to be. This pair however, is very sturdy and I’m happy with it! I also decided to add some light.
After all, if the Renegade is out and about in the shadows, and she doesn’t have cat’s eyes like her friend does, she’ll need some illumination.
I made this as a Christmas present for a friend of mine, a drawing of a character of his. I had to take some creative license because a) it was entirely conceptual and b) never openly discussed, just like my own character, a praetor. Still, I had a ton of fun with this and he really liked it. 😀
Now, this was another experiment in monochromatic graphics. I really like how it worked out, and I want to practice more with this media combination. What do you guys think of it compared to my coloured work, would you like to see more done in this style?

Yep, still drawing. :p
Now, here’s the thing. Purple coloured pencils can be very capricious. Mixed with other colours they can be quite graceful. On their own however it’s harder to get them right.
Maybe it’s just a matter of Polychromos. Maybe other coloured pencils are easier in temperament. I’ll keep practicing with these ones and see which ones will work best.
August 22nd to the 25th is Fanexpo in Toronto, Canada.
And the Seadragon Corsair is set to sail for the first time! On the deck of this dastardly pirate vessel is the Errant Rifleman and myself, the dragon brigand of the seas.
And for the reference, we’re the dark blue table with the seashells and roses. 😉 Unless someone else got the great idea to do the same decoration, in which case we have a banner, hahah.
So if you’re in town // in the Metro Convention Centre, feel free to come by and say hi!
Man, I have an urge to make up a story about how a one-eyed human captain and an eight legged dragon teamed up to ravage and plunder the world. Anyone want to throw some ideas on the table? I wouldn’t mind illustrating both our characters later, once the expo and commissions are done. 😉
