March 19th Update!

Page 434 is up! (And as always, you're invited to join me on Patreon and see the next page early!)

In other news, I just made my very first tutorial! A lovely patron asked me how I take a page from the flat color stage to the finished state, so I did my best to explain how I approach the entire process:

Overall Lighting and Color Scheme
Cel Shading
Highlighting
Sometimes a Gradient Map for Extra Fanciness
Ambient Glow and Atmosphere
Checking/Adjusting Contrast and Clarity

I also included a layered PSD file that you can download, so that you can see exactly what I'm talking about at each step. The tutorial is available to everyone who pledges $5 or more on Patreon. Feel free to check it out if you're interested! I hope it's helpful. ♥

The blog and art gallery of one of True Magic's long-time readers, Zela (a.k.a. Illinia). There's a ton of art and writing to browse, as well as two(!) ongoing fantasy webcomics. Good fun. Go see!
