Hey all, I’ve wanted to start up Saturday/Weekend posts for a while now, but didn’t know what kind of content to put up.

Then, whilst reading one of my favorite posters on Facebook, Colleen Doran, who likes to post her early and process-work, I realized people LOVE this stuff!

Since I’m so busy this year with actually creating art, I figured I could use weekends to share some of what I’m working on while it’s in-progress!

This week I’m starting with some smaller digital paintings I’m doing for the Characters Page here at RKDIA Comics. I’ve dabbled in digital painting in the past, but most of the time it’s been more animation-style coloring. Needless to say, I’m a bit rusty on painting in general, it’s something I haven’t done since college. The ease and speed of digital however gives me the opportunity to experiment again and re-kindle skill sets I haven’t used in a while without having to deal with the time consuming, messy and smelly oils I once used. (Granted, I do hope to get back into doing actual original painted art someday also.)

Either way, here’s Amy, in-progress for her mug-shot(s) on the Characters page! Finished versions coming soon as characters are introduced in the comic!
