GIANT STUPID RENDERING PILE by blix-it GIANT STUPID RENDERING PILE by blix-it
At least my titles are honest and to the point. After 118 pages, titles begin to seem less important.

From TG 118.
See rough and lines on tumblr.

Because just drawing the comic takes so much time, I never get to do illustrations separate from the comic. Splash pages only now and then. This panel was slated to be small, but I did the sketch of it and really wanted to make it a full illustration. 8( Because there are no big illustrations of Sedna with Vidu, as human(type) things.

I'm so jealous of other artists who capture an emotion in just one picture. 8( It's some amazing combination of figure drawing, colors, and symbolic elements in a setting ... and I never manage to do it. It's been really educational to try (and fail a lot) to write Sedna and Vidu as they meet for the first time, Vidu sort of agrees without thinking to help Sedna wake the Underworld. Then the prospect of this being something other than an easy goal is the first time Sedna experiences the sensation of potential loss. Not even real loss, just the fear of loss. More complexly, the loss will occur whether or not Sedna and Vidu succeed to wake the Underworld, as things are already happening that might stop them, or they might manage it and then Vidu will return home and Sedna will .... stay?

Also, Sedna is sort of not emotionally aware. So none of the feels make sense. The only thing he definitely, successfully learns from it all is how to be sarcastic.

woooow omg!! This is so impressive and wonderful!! I really love the color setting, the strong emotion and the contrast between light and dark colors! Hmmm you shouldn't be jealous of other artists since in my eyes, you are already very good at putting in a lot of emotions but I understand what you mean. But still, you shouldn't make yourself good worse than you are ;)

I think there's a lot of emotion, both in this panel by itself and in the page as a whole. Even without knowing the story as it's been unfolding, the body language is very expressive.

Hell, Blix, you're probably the best watercolor artist I've ever come across, and that's not just because your paintings are pretty. Maybe the reason you don't feel successful in portraying emotions is because you're too close, spend too much time with it. But for those of us on the outside, who only see the finished product, the feelings come across loud and clear and with poetic impact. This painting is beautiful and emotional, and I think says everything you wanted it to say.

I totally felt the emotion of the moment when I read the comic! The chemistry between these to is really interesting and your pages always astound me at how detailed they are! Your watercolors are my main source of inspiration.

Sometimes, all you can do is hug someone and hope they understand why you're doing it. :)

I really do feel these past few pages; I'm a rather anxious person at heart and while with time I've learned to control my often irrational worries sometimes... I just have to hold someone and reassure myself they're still there. Sedna and Vidu havevery real, very actively occurring things to fear.
