Editorial Adventures

This fortnight I have jumped wildly from my slow and thoughtful post-Blaugust habits right into work fast!-mode. (Continuing the trend of not-sharing-immediately, though, so some of it won’t be posted for ages.)

But! This piece!

I took Ed J Brown’s Skillshare course. It was really really good. Like, if I had a survey that was asking ‘how likely are you to recommend this course?’ then my answer’d be 5(/5). Because I would and am recommending it to anyone who’s interested in that sort of thing. Useful info, good teacher and just the right level of challenge to stretch you (or me, anyway).

Anyway, this is the result of all my homework. Sketch ideas and alternate finishes can be found on the project page, if you’re into that kind of thing. I had a fun time, and I’m gonna go off and set myself some more editorial assignments in the future 🙂

Hey friends, just letting you know that this blog is taking a one week break. I’ve just moved house and started a new job and I need a mini breather. See you with Chapter 14: Snape’s Grudge next Sunday.

^^ HP blog on a one week hiatus. I’m actually nearly finished the next chapter and done some work on future chapters too, so don’t worry I’m def coming back, I just need to not stress about it for a few days. 

/happy dance/ I have a new art project to work on.

On a completely unrelated note: if you want me to draw your fave character in 1940s clothing, feel free to leave me a note in my ask box and I’ll probably draw them on the weekend… 😛
