There's a lot of things wrong with the structure that's not making it strong enough that I feel confident to push along. Might want to scrap and just start again. It's disappointing though. Hmm.

This is Dan, again. Whoops for face anatomy, I will fixing it as I go along. I'm trying to get the feeling of everything at this moment. I'll work a good chunk on it again tomorrow.

Aside from all that. I did discover a faster way to get things done. So I'll be trying more of this technique later. Maybe it's 'cause I started on paper... Hmm

Since I've been working on improving my linework, I haven't done much of the painting side. My initial goal was to learn another painting style but in the end I think I'm going back to my old processes. I did learn, though, that if I did work on line-work it's mostly going to be cel-shaded. If I were to work on my painting, it would be more of the colours and such. I'm having a hard time trying to put the two together, so I guess the result of it would be a mixture of these.

Some progress on SuperTeam!. I didn't get to finish today, though. Had a lot of things to do for Mother's Day.
Have the colours down for the twins. Might do a little colour balance.. but I like the colours so far..
I was curious on that the other two (Roda and Meyson) would probably look with shorter hair (which would be slightly more acceptable in any given air force vs. their "normal" length hair styles).
I kind of like it. I don't know. Maybe part way of the comic everyone drastically needs to cut their hair. That'd be amusing.

I did this as a warmup today. Mostly playing around with a different program.
This was done as a speedpaint, mostly. I haven't done a painterly-thing for a while now so I figured I should do something. I also used a different technique that I saw someone do so tried to do a different process. I really dislike where it's at right now. I'll fix it up later, hopefully--or start over new...
These are some logos for the Redstar project. Still in development. Might have gold wings for it in the end.
This is Evelyn with her Armadillo, Illo. Her callsign at the moment is TECH but may change. She'll also be a Crew Chief.
Dan and Roda. It was on my blog earlier. Just added more colour and stuffs.

A friend and I discussed codenames for the crew of our Redstar☆Pilots after watching Top Gun (1986) today. It's hard to top the codenames in Top Gun. Haha. So far the list of callsigns goes:
- Meyson Grant "ZEALOT"
Daniel and Roda call him Meyson and May.
-TaeWoo Jung "RODRIC"
Meyson and Dan call him Roda. (Which is the girl form of the name Rodric).
- Daniel Skyes "PRINCE"
Roda and Meyson calls Daniel Dan.
- Marc Davis "SANDMAN"
- Evelyn Jones "TECH"
- Bianca _____ "BEE"
- Brooke _____ " BRAVO"
My friend and I also had a discussion on changing Dan's hair. So it more less will be the first one on the left and later on it'll be shorter. So...

First to break the streak of pilots..
I wanted to do a different style so I'm working on this. It's interesting so far, I think. Thinking differently, that's for sure.
It's definitely way faster than the usual layouts I do.
My comic-partner still doesn't feel confident enough for Dan, so still exploring him I guess. The scar will probably be taken off and will come later in the story, most likely.

It kind of makes sense actually. If you look at it, there's kind of a story going on, more so if you know of the characters relationships with each other.
Bianca (woman in middle) is Daniel's co-pilot.
Some quick sketches to get a feeling of the settings for Redstar☆Pilots . I need to make things a bit more "vintage-y" to fit with the "uniform" of the characters. That being said, the planes may undergo a little bit of redesign and might have a mixture between the bi-planes and modern ones like the F-16. I'll see. Might throw in something like a MiG-21 and get away with it a little.
It's also in isometric view so that I can get an idea where everything would be in the room.
The rooms are also based off of some military schooling dorms--where two rooms are conjoined by a toilet and shower area, of course separated by doors on either side. It's also slightly based off a dorm room I stayed at in a marine biology research centre.
So basically, if all doors were unlocked, you could enter one dorm and come out another by the main entrance.
Meyson and Roda share a room that will be connected to Daniel with Bianca's (new character that I haven't posted on this blog yet) room.
The common room is where everybody within their sectors can relax and meet each other and chill out/etc. Think of Harry Potter when the houses have their own set of couches and fireplace.
The super carriers will be another part of the universe (out on the ocean of course) that will house a fleet of planes. And a city, possibly.
We haven't actually decided who's office this is either. It may be Marc Davis'

More pilots stuff. I bet you guys are getting sick of this. Ahhh.
But redesigns of Brooke, a.k.a. Bravo.
Rita Singer (She was back in one of my earlier posts last year)
And LiHua Xiao, a.k.a Lili Or Lily (She used to be named Kimmy. She's Rita's partner).
And the ones on the right are just doodles of Lily and Meyson in my new sketchbook.
And because I love these two...
Daniel with Roda at his back. And Meyson and Roda at the bottom.
Also in my new sketchbook. I love Rhodia (Roda, they almost look the same) paper! So smooth.

Anyways. This is Roda and Daniel. Gotta say bye to his hubby before he leaves. Haha.

A friend and I are co-making a comic this summer and I've just been redesign my existing characters and redesigning Bravo to fit in one style. Bravo is owned by my friend, Jeremy, the rest are mine.
We're also planning to attend an air show this summer, which I'm excited for. Lately, I've been giving into my temptation for looking up planes and such.
So a quick run down..
Daniel Skyes (Roda calls him Dan)
Roda (Tae Woo, is his Korean name) Jung
Bravo (Brooke is her real name)
Uh, yeah. Daniel is also Roda's boyfriend. Meyson, I've decided will be a close friend to Roda--much like a brother, really.
I actually haven't really decided on which one's I want to be using so I guess I'll continue on with this for tomorrow.

And school is over so I'm finding I can squeeze some fanart in my time somewhere...
I'll finish this eventually.
