It's Been Awhile :Preview: by SaffuranLoL It's Been Awhile :Preview: by SaffuranLoL
I've been sitting on the completed lineart for awhile now, even using the head in an earlier deviation, but I've been working little by little over the last few days to get closer to my first full deviation submission in nearly 3 months.

It's been awhile..


This shows where the pick was yesterday around 3PM and I am maybe a day or so from finishing if I work diligently. I'm once again experimenting with a new coloring style too only because every time I draw Saff, the picture is super dark, so instead I'm trying for a high contrast sort of look. In this picture nothing is done and the eye hasn't even been worked on yet.. xD

Once this picture is done I also won't be drawing Saff for a few pics only because the "recent" submissions have helped clog my gallery full of him, I'll be working on my sole commission, catching up on an Art Trade I've never compensated, and just doing gifts.

Here's to a hopeful return to form and improval. x3

Thx, it was fun to just sort of experiment and such. The pic is finished now and I rushed some parts since I got lazy but I'm still happy you like the coloring here. :3

And it's not so much learning as it is screwing around with Photoshop and seeing the monster my experimenting brings to life.
