Yes, she’s calling out Tropes by name. It’s that kind of series. The answer to the alt-text will become clear as the series progresses, but obviously at least partially the Warrior type given her transforming bow.
...As for the page, this is my best work ever.
So I wanted to show the full-sized version of the page, because of how much detail I put in, but it's because I put so much detail in I need to highlight the flaws:
See how her bow handle has a shadow? That's an error. Similarly, the bow handle is opaque when it should be partially transparent.
This is a bit of a nitpick, but the shadow has a white outline, thanks to wrong order of operations (I transformed THEN filled, where I should've filled THEN transformed).
I have a similar misapplication in the handling of the sketch layer, too. Plus, this is detail-work, but basically: this is one of the only images I anticipate ever drawing of a hand so close...and I didn't include fingernails.
And while not an error per se, there's a difference in the bow between this page and the cover page. Speaking of the bow, as a probable (but not necessarily) error, the arrow appears to pass right through bow handle.
Otherwise, love everything there.
I'm a week early, so it'll be two weeks before you see me update here (this is not the flagship site), but all the same, I thought I'd celebrate a milestone in my work by posting this.
Also, yes, I did in fact forget my artistic signature. Oh well.
You'll see a lot of art variation between here, page 1, and page 2, but things should get more consistent after that.
In the mean time, have some teaser images!
These two images were never meant to be taken further, but I made them as a "proof of concept" prototype, to show that what I wanted to do was possible. They represent the title image and the first page proper, both of which you'll be seeing relatively soon if all goes well. (Ironically, I changed the structure of the first page to be different than above, but my life would have been easier if I had kept it almost exactly like the above one.)
This was my first (later abandoned) attempt at the first page. It was a nice start, and this page will give you a good idea of what you can expect to see in the future, but ultimately, the final product will be vastly different since I started from scratch. Here's a preview, though!
This is much closer to what it'll look like, but the above was just a cropping from a work-in-progress. If you're liking what you're seeing, then you can expect good things! We'll see about getting a comic proper running.
