Tales from the Fireside


Someone notice me. hahahhaa. Please.

I want to make stories. Lots of them. I need 130.00 a month on Patreon to pay for the important bills, not including food. I want the freedom to be able to focus on this. <3

This is the lineart of the cover for a book of short stories I'd like to create called "Tales from the Fireside." It's a Brothers Grimm inspired fantasy/horror anthology. I've always been very inspired by the irish and their innate details in their art.

And here it is

And here is "THE-ORIGINAL" the black and white drawing before the color it looks "RAVASHING" love the detail that the black and white show you have truly impressed me and I have faved this and the colored one very impressed with your artistic work here.

I would suggest some color but you have already done that lol


ThePaintedDogg responds:

Thank you!

Gorgeous! I hope you find the time and funds to be a full-time storyteller <3

ThePaintedDogg responds:

thanks friend!

Ah here's that one that was later colored in!This was really cool. Almost better in black and white than in color... the details just come across so differently here, even if the background's still a blank canvas. Could've been a good place for some black text eh? ;)

Definitely had more of an atmosphere with the other, but there's so much to look at here in comparison! Really cool.


ThePaintedDogg responds:

yeaahh!! I really enjoyed the black and white version more honestly. I DO lose a lot of detail, and movement when I add color, and it's all about picking the right color palette. ;-; Thank you so much! I'm really inspired to rework this!
