Chapter One's cover page for my Alice in Wonderland is officially completed! This, though it looks very sophisticated, took MUCH less time than the page with Alice ice-skating because I just [accidentally] discovered a new, handy tool called the Auto-Correct Adjustment Tool, and it was by mere chance that I clicked on it and my job was already half-completed, sparing me two hours' painstaking tracing line art work. :D Hoorah! Anyway, though I have been a busy little bee with Shadow Kingdom, I'm really starting to fall in love the Alice story as well, and I just couldn't help but start this up...so, yeah, here's the cover page for Chapter One: Down the Rabbit Hole.
Man, why do they have to be so dang huge???? Well, anyway, there's the cover :) I know the leaves thing is kinda iffy (I might clean that up better later--but for now I'm just procrastinating) but isn't it nice? And I know the line art's kinda crinkly because I didn't trace it over with the smooth tools of Photoshop, but when it's normal-sized and not this honking big thing, it looks quite natural and pretty, and there's no evidence of scraggly line art. The title is rasterized, not using a font in Photoshop (I painted the title in Corel Painter Essentials--even if I'd used a Photoshop font, it would've been rasterized when I imported it into Painter, anyway). As usual, I'm hugely excited at my having so much accomplished. This was a speedy job, but it turned out to be brilliant! Well, in my opinion; maybe I'm exaggerating because I'm just proud of my work, per usual. ^^" So, yeah, that's that...I know it's lame that I haven't written any of the actual written part of the Alice story yet, but right now when I write I'm doing Shadow Kingdom, and when I draw I'm doing Alice, so I'll have to put a quick pause on writing anything else.
