Cold Winter Night

I had a hard time with this one. Ultimately, I think it's one of my favorites, but boy oh boy did it put up a fight. I struggled with getting it as deep and vibrant as I had planned, and then when it was deep enough I was frustrated with the lack of subtlety that watercolor usually provides.
This also served to remind me that sometimes sticking with something is the best course of action, even when you want to start all over.

This is a beautiful post. I love what you do with water colors. I've been following your blog on my RSS reader, one of my favorites, but I wanted to ask you a question. Are you still working on the Next Adventure comic?

I was really looking forward to more of that comic. I understand if it wasn't working out, just wanted to know where it stands.

Thank you so much!

And I am absolutely still working on The Next Adventure. I'm sorry it's been so dead for so long! Chapter five is going to be posted all in one go. At this point, it's mostly penciled and a third of it has been inked.
Other projects and making capital kind of gets in the way.

Thank you for commenting though, and being understanding : )
