Mother's Day special: Bloom #4 by blayrd
Mother's Day special: Bloom #4
Final scene of the mini-series I was commissioned to do for a mother's day music video in the style of Changing Stories. You can check out the video and some amazing singing here: www.facebook.com/sassvocal/vid…

This scene originally had the most panels and by the time I was done with editing it had the most! I'm quite fond of the first panel (oh hey there wall) and would have liked to work more on the last one but I'd literally run out of time by then. My tired art-brain probably defaults too much to my own image when drawing on limited resources, so the first take of this had the girl-now-mother a bit too tomboyish, which probably reflects my own dress sense. Oops. Had to send her clothes to the tailor for round two.

Last panel also reminds me of Family Circus but I suppose all circular panels do. Hope you enjoyed this little tale!

By this point I was running out of time to work on art so brain was all "YAAARGH WHAT IS PHONE WHAT IS HOSPITAL HOW DO YOU WHATSIT" and blabbered things out accordingly. I do like the flying paper though I'm not exactly sure why she had to mess up her desk before fleeing. Strange lady.

There wasn't enough facetime in this because I kind of put her fringe on the viewer-side of things (it's the emo-phase, man! What self-respecting teen is gonna make eye contact with you?!??) so... reflection to the rescue! Speech bubble to the rescue to explain motivation for office-visit, too. No fighting, girl.

Happy Mother's Day, mums! <3

Here's a little mini-series I was commissioned to do for a mother's day music video in the style of Changing Stories, a 24 hour comic from some years back. I also had exactly four days to finish it in, three of which I had full work days doing, well, non-art things. Excitingly, I think I managed about 30 hours of drawing in those days after a long hiatus of not drawing! Wrist took a while to recover, but I'm pleased with the end result.

Yes, I totally re-used designs and palette from my previous comic. It's continuity, don'tcha know! I was also very amused by my inability to draw a kid slipping off a wall in a normal, un-dramatic manner. Oops.

All that Flitters - 24HCD 2014 by blayrd
All that Flitters - 24HCD 2014
Hello friends! I am back from my annual comic-art pilgrimage. dA has tweaked its layout again, eh.

This year I decided to do the team variation of the challenge and collaborated with a writer friend. The process was pretty interesting - I had a page or two of script in mind at any one point, and did thumbnailing/composition on the spot before each page instead of beforehand. This lead to a few composition boo-boos that I'd to take extra time to fix (including an accidental face appearing in the last page, between two hands (eyes) and the silhouette (nose) and a zoomed in mouth shot). Working in landscape was also something different, and took a few pages to get the hang of, though what I realized I was really rusty at was thinking in color schemes! By the time I'd warmed up enough to remember how to draw it was too late in the night for brain to function properly, alas. 'twas all good fun though, as ever.

There was really no preparation beforehand at all for this, even for story idea, so I'm pleased for how it turned out nonetheless! Hope you enjoy this little tale too.

PS CS6, Intuos 4, around 21 hours (didn't really keep track this time)

Hello dA-world, and belatedly, happy 2014! 

I really haven't been very active here for ages, and that infrequent sort of uploading may be getting worse seeing as art is taking quite a bit of a back seat in my life right now - at least last year I was still sort of doodling a bit if not drawing seriously, but these days it's not even that. Oh well! Updatingly, I've started full-time work teaching and designing in a drumming school so that's where my time and energy is going these days.

So it seems like it's time for a new phase in online life too: you can find me as "stalj" or related names most places; "blayrd" is a bit of a teenage memento for me now! Random trivia: Blayrd was actually the protagonist of a webcomic that never happened, and art of her has never seen the light of the internet. Wahey! I'm not sure when I'll start drawing again but definitely someday - smaller things will probably find their way onto facebook/tumblr/maybe instagram if I start using that more. Will probably still upload larger works here but again, don't know when that'll be happening next.

See y'all around, thanks for all the good times!
