Call me Rune.
I'll try to keep this as updated and art-related as possible, but this is my main blog so expect (minimal) reblogs, chatting, and fun tags that could be a whole separate conversation.

IT’S DONE. It’s so done that I don’t have anything witty left to say. Enjoy the blatant editing out of my name, the zero-effort back cover (except that killer drawing of Noel’s toque!), and the barcode that had to be resized like a hundred times because it was 72ppi when everything else is 300ppi.

Alright that’s it. I’m shit at color palettes so I mashed this together and this is how it’s gonna stay. (Thanks for the reply on my other post btw, Hikaru!)
I’ve also added in the bleed area and figured out my font. I must be really tired because I didn’t think the black was that thick as I was working on it…
Edit: Okay I’ve figured it out. Since I used layer styles to make the black outline, it stayed at x pixels wide when I resized for the preview. I’m too lazy to recalculate all that stuff so here’s the actual image size I’ve been working at.

This thing will be the death of me…

I’m working on the final colors now and I can’t decide on which color of train to use. Blue fits in with the other colors, but the yellow kinda pops.

Help me out, guys. Which one do you like better?

I finally got around to watching The Boy With The Cuckoo Clock Heart since I read the book in French a little while ago, and I’m glad to report that it was just as confusing as the book was. That’s French literature for you. The soundtrack was really great though.
Anyway, I like eyepatches so here’s Joe. I hope my French isn’t butchered here, but it’s supposed to say “Ever since that day, the tic-toc of clocks anger me.”

*Dies in a small ball of death*
I hate hate hate lineart and this fucker took 3 months to finish. But it’s done. It’s my book cover, it all it’s train-y glory.

I’ve been feeling uninspired lately but I was watching Paramore videos when I thought “Hey, Hayley’s body shape would be great for Cass!” And since I had the time, I made a little chart of how I’ve been fixing up my sketches lately.
I start with the shitty sketch and go with what I know, then I block it all in so I have a silhouette. From that I can see what looks weird and I chisel away until it looks less weird. Then I lower the opacity and draw on the basic details like kneecaps and fingers. Finally, details and clothes. I slapped on some colors here too, since I’ve been trying to figure out Cass’s palette. And that’s how it’s done!

My other new character to go along with the silver-haired girl. Adrian is an orphan but he took the last name of the foster mother who raised him until he “aged out of care”.
