Chronicles of Summoners - School Days 4 by Mosquito-86
Chronicles of Summoners - School Days 4
Still working on this approach to the illustration, it is fun to choose a single color and work on it'v variant, and the charcoal brush let me keep a smooth line without entering in the "inking" process, keeping it more quick and flowing

about the scene, it was an attemp to show a bigger ambient than usual instead of closing myself in a small box as rooms with low ceiling, and to put more people as I can instead that only the protagonist; Also I had to think about the clothes of the professor and made some research about different timeframe in europe to find the vibe that I was looking for

I have to admit that that process stopped a little the work until I finded the right image for the guidelines but in the end is better for the illustration and help the spirit too, considering the frustration that comes with not being able to express what comes in mind

I tried to show an alchemy class and how Lysanne is bad about it, exercising on the surprised expressions in very variant from the "what?" to the "OMG WHAT IS THAT?!" (sorry if it dosen't make any sense....)

ANYWAY, i would LOVE to have your impression tips or such, so feel free to leave a comment, and if you have some time take a look to my gallery, I wuold much appreciate it

The Chronicles of Summoner - Streets by Mosquito-86
The Chronicles of Summoner - Streets
when I'm not sure how to do some thing, I usually work my ass off until that particular topic dose not bite me (as every other person on this planet does when he meet an obstacle) in this particular case I know that one of my greatest problem (toghether with the coloring process) its the ambientation or the backgrounds, I usually ends leaving my characters floating in the air with just some shadows as proof that they are actually touchin the ground or I draw them against a wall whit the shadow casted in it (-_-''')

Knowing about this perk of mine I started working on the background as the first thing, adapting it in some second time at the character (miracles of digital), usually that ends up in a bunch of cubes, boxes with windows with no architectual fidelity, so I decided to take a step further and I started taking references to adapt building existent in reality to my scenarios, trynig to focusing on the particular who gives the building the vibes it transmit...

This is the first results of a scene for a comic I'm trying to put downand as you can see it look like the building are floating in the air, but its still an improvment from what my non-existent background use to be, I'm colouring this piece at the moment and I hope that it will add some weight at everything once it will be all done.

The Chronicles of Summoners - School Days 3
Being an expert about falling asleep in class I felt obligated to do an illustration about this topic, and considering my cast of student Damian was the obvious choice, with the other reacting to this narcolepsia attack

It was a fun piece to do evevn because forced me to create some secondary student without focusin on the same old five protagonist, and considering that it is a fantasy school I had to think about mixing the races and thinking about young version of dwarves and elves starting from the shapes (like the dwarf whom HAD to have a "square" face and some beard even if he's just a teenager) and the anatomy who had to be understandeble even if they're al sit

the background was a little more easy this time but to be an Academy of magic it's still a lot simple, and I'm actually studing gothic and ancient architecture, focusing on the intern to better transmit the effect I'm seeking, like (obviously) those in LOTR and Harry Potter
(again OBVIOUSLY)

ANYWAY, i would LOVE to have your impression tips or such, so feel free to leave a comment, and if you have some time take a look to my gallery, I wuold much appreciate it

Lysanne Andrews 01 - Flats by Mosquito-86
Lysanne Andrews 01 - Flats
just adding some flat in preperation for the last phase of colouring, or as I call it, "the moment when everything goes wrong"


this may be a tricky part of the work, not for its complexity but because up to this moment every phase of the work is pretty instinctive, even the "inking" part; but putting down the flat the working chain its like if it block itself, all you have to do is fulling the various areas and chosing the colour, so it's very exahusting, for me at least, because it feel like something I'm forced to instead of something I want to do, and I'm not really good with imposed stuff, even when I'm the one whose impose myself something

a group of psychiatrist are studying this phenomenon and decided to call it the "wtf dude? syndrome" no cure founded up to this date

But that's why I'm trying to develop another tecnique who spares me from this phase, even though its safer this way: you just put down the flats and work on the levels above this one so that if you mess up something you can correct your work without redoing everything (but that's basic knowledge, so I guess that was not necessary)

I would LOVE to have your impression tips or such, so feel free to leave a comment, and if you have some time take a look to my gallery, I wuold much appreciate it

I'm an Italian "want to be" comic artist, graduated from Academy of Fine Arts of Bologna in Comics and Illustration, where I had the chaces of working with some greatly talented people under some grat names of international comics.

At the moment I'm living in my hometown working on my skills and preparing my comics for web publishing

I do not consider myself an "artist" becouse it would implies the possession of some talent that I don't have, I just keep working pushed ahead by my stubborness
