This might not correspond to the final product… teehee ♥
Hi there everybody! Here’s the Cat and the Fox together at long last to start bringing you posts more often! This marks the beginning of a true team-ness feeling for this blog! Woohoo!!!
Truth be told, it always saddened us that there was no true way to show that these posts are actually written by two people/pests so we hope the adding of our avatars will change that!
Yep, this feels a lot better! So today we’re dropping this quick concept art for a future pinup. We usually discuss an idea, then we do a quick character study until we’re satisfied and then we add a bit of colours.
We might tweak the colours when we get closer to the final product but what matters is getting a feel for the character first.
This is it for now! If you have any questions for us don’t be shy! We’ll be more than happy to reply the best we can. And now back to celebrating this success and more to come soon! Bye everyone!
Posting regularly is really not an easy feat, good thing we’re two right? Welp…
We’re forever busy handling comics and illustrations that we hope to share with you as soon as we get the a-ok from our clients and in the meanwhile we’ll try to drop by more often with our silly ramblings, doodles and whatnots.
As much as we love videogames we sadly don’t have the time to play them as much as before (howling sigh) and there’s so many hot titles coming out…one of them being FF XV.
We’re not exactly fans of the new titles of the franchise (snes die hard fans forever! Woo!) but what are two girls to do about part of the cast… well.. ahem. Do expect a bit of male fanservice here and there from now on. (Persona 5 is also on the way so… yeah… more fanservice)
But let’s go back to the title of this post and share with you a quick step by step example of what we do with an image.
Step 1: Sketched some characters (in this case a rather fed up Gladiolus and an overjoyed Prompto)
Step 2: Scanned our image and fixed what needed fixing in our software of choice. In this case we cleaned up some of the lines and drew some things better.
Step 2b: Dropped some basic colours on top focusing on not overwhelming the sketch (also we were taking a tea break so we didnt have the time to go overboard)
Step 3: Played with crop, contrast and brightness, slapped a texture on top and our logo fully knowing that although this sketch is done, our fawning over these handsome guys is just beginning…
Zelda’s Breath of the Wild is out and we got no chance of playing it 😥
Nevertheless, we’ll lust after the character designs whenever we can. This one was made months ago when the first images of Zelda got released. Her design is so adorable and we wonder if you can keep her following you around forever and ever, like Marin did in Link’s Awakening.
At least for now we got A Link Between Worlds to keep us going and one day, someday, we’ll join the BOTW hype! *hopeful sighs issue*
All this to say we wished we could play more games but we can’t ahaha…. hah… that’s life for ya, right?
What warm light is this? Is the weather warming up?
Hah, as if the reason for our silence was sweet rested hibernation, no, not at all… How did the saying go… No rest for the weary?(no, not the wicked…) Rightly so, but we are far from complaining as health is finally being recovered, the new place is very comfy and sunny and we are happily busy since the beginning of this year!
We just returned from an event, Dia do Japão (Japan’s Day) organized by the Liga de Estudos Asiáticos at Faculdade de Letras da Universidade de Lisboa (Faculty of Humanities of the University of Lisbon) We loved the day and met wonderful people, some don’t know how close they were of being hugged to death unconsciousness, stuck on our pocket and taken home♥ we want to thank everyone at the lovely organization for all the attention and care they provided us!
We didn’t get the chance to take many pictures but here’s at least one of them♥
We hope everyone has been treated well by 2017 up to now and if not, we hope things start getting better from here on.
Have a great week and take care!★★
And here we are at the end of our first Inktober ever and what a wonderful ending, to end it with Halloween!
It’s been a wonderful journey. It taught us a thing or two about time management and helped us to beat some doubts and fears when doing traditional work. We hope to keep improving and keep reaching for our trusty pens and not just the digital tablets!
We would like to give a huge THANK YOU to all of you that have been coming to our blog. We are humbled by seeing so many of you coming back to check our things and keep connecting by chosing to follow our work! Really, thank you so very much! We hope to soon give you the chance to win a little thank you gift so stay tuned!
And now get your witch’s hats out, grab some candy and do the zombie shuffle! Woo! Happy Halloween!!
Always be wary Mr. Wolf… It’s Halloween season and poisoned candy is a possibility~♥
Yay, in two days it will be our favorite holiday again! You better be careful out there and give some good thought about your costume for Trick-or-Treating, lest you attract the wrong type of crowd!
Halloween is starting to be more popular in our country nowadays but alas, this year we don’t have time to party. Is anyone dressing up this year? If so, what will your costume be? We’re always curious as to what everyone’s choice is when it comes to trick or treating!✦
