Some of you may have noticed I’ve finally put up banner images on both my site and my LJ. For the record, this is what my site banner looks like. The greyscale is just be temporary until I have time to colour the lines. It’s been ages since I’ve had an LJ though, and already 3 whole years [wow!] since I’ve had my site. Neither have ever had proper banners and it just couldn’t wait any longer.

Anyway, without further ado, I present to you my lines. When I’m done colouring this, I’ll upload a walk through so you can all see how crappy my sketches start out.

Today’s bust of the season features Zoë, a character you may have already seen in the comic. I had fun with the line weights, though I can see a few spots where I should have done better but all in all this isn’t a bad start to the new year. In the last post I talked about how this image is similar to the first picture I drew in 2010. At the same time, it’s still different enough that I don’t feel like I’m regressing. While Coraline certainly has more of a realistic touch, Zoë here has more of an ‘American’-styled lineart feel. Or at least I hope it’s American-ish, because I’m really trying to move away from the anime style I so easily sketch in.

The snowflakes are kind of gaudy looking I know, but I like to think that they make it less appealing to people who want to borrow my lines without crediting. Also, I figure that since I live in Winter Wonderland Canada, it’ll be snow season for at least another 3-5 months. That should give me enough time to draw up a new spring banner. This drawing too didn’t end up at all how I planned. Originally there were no flowers. Originally this was supposed to be a simple, quick and dirty, black haired girl for me to practice inking. It became Zoë when I started getting a little creative with my lines up in the hair. On the bright side, in changing up the character, I’ve decided to add some details to liven up her face in canon. Zoë will now have a piercing – she takes out for work [so no retcon needed hahah] – and handful of beauty marks sprinkled all over. Her chin is expected to be the most square of all my lady SP characters too.
