My tablet is ridiculously hard to use, to the point where manually using my mouse is faster.
Speaking of my mouse, when I'm drawing, my lines are incredibly unsteady, and the auto-correct feature is virtually worthless, so my lineart is atrocious.
I spent three hours (give or take) on the cover page last night. And know how much I got done?
The lineart and the flats, both not nearly as well as I'd like.
Know what that leaves me to do?
Detail work: things that were left out of the lineart and flats for simplicity in coloring's sake.
Texture work: making the clothing Ruby is wearing actually look like clothing.
Multiple coloring layers, to add depth to the drawing.
Lighting, adding shadows and highlight.
Maybe more miscellaneous details I'm overlooking.
This, for what amounts to one drawing. One, fairly large, drawing. One, single, piece of art, on a single page.
...Some of my pages have six. And if you multiply an average of four or so per page, across 22 pages, and you've got, what? 88 drawings I need to make?
And this is my woes for just one.
So, uh, yeah. Red Hood Rider is being made. It's just being made at an abysmally slow pace with a lot of quality already down the drain.
