« New drawing, and my plans for Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan | Main | Mary Gentle - Grunts »

I ain't dead, but I do have new art!

I'm about halfway through the process of adapting "The Green Knight's Belt" from 1991-92 for the Web. It's a lot more work, proportionally, than re-adapting " The Stone of Contention" especially because I relied on puns more at the time. Puns, especially my old groaners from a decade and a half ago, are the bane of my existence right now.

Nevertheless, I am getting further ahead. I now have material on file to make a continuous buffer extending well into November. This is good, because it means that I can take another look at this cover image, tentatively scheduled for October 13. I think this one is OK, but OK isn't good enough. This one will eventually move to the very beginning of the Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan archives and will therefore be one of the first bits in the series that many people will see.

I don't know what's making me dissatisfied about it, but I think it lacks an edge. Therefore, just this once, I'm inviting all my readers to critique it, either in my local gallery or on DeviantArt. Help me improve! Even if you can't draw yourself, you'll probably know what you like and what might make this illustration better.

Between now and October, I will find the time to improve on this even if it means drawing and coloring it all over again. This is a good thing. Too often in the past few years, I've only had time to post a piece and then move on to the next. It's one of the things I've grown to dislike about webcartooning. All the good advice I got from my studio mates that I didn't have the time or the mental wossname to take. For the next few months, I won't have that problem.
