  Wednesday art sale! Ink wash bio domes!May 17, 2017 10:31 PM PDT | url | discuss | + share
 
Added 1 new A* page:Wednesday art sale! We've gone through the oldest ink wash stuff, from episode 13, where I was doing the pages in an oversized 17"x11" format, so now I'm free to roam through the art archives of the later ink episodes, where I gradually worked down to smaller formats more fitting to the actual aspect ratio of the A* pages you see online—so less wasted margin space to confuse me as I tried to lay out the page. : o Today I bring you a pure old timey sci-fi page, namely the 17" x 7.5" ink wash illustration I made for episode 17, page 9, which is up for auction right here for the next week at a special low price—starting at $14.99, vs the $50 it would normally cost directly through my site.
 
The auction listing has hi-res images, but here are tiny preview ones to entice you:

Episode 13 had Selenis trying to pry advanced cloning technology out of an archive held in a gigantic tree in a large greenhouse complex by the organization called "Earth's Revival." This is the page where we first see their famed "Bioarchive," from the outside.
 
This page was made during the phase (which lasted about until Selenis got to the moon of that planet, later in the episode) where I eschewed doing pencil layouts, instead just going right into the ink work from scratch! : o And I had this big thick crazy Japanese half synthetic, half horse-hair brush I would lay it on with. It was fun! ^_^ I have no idea how I managed to get the domes of the Bioarchive that nice and round just going freehand like that. : ooo
 
You can catch this and all my other A* art sales (including each new page's original watercolor art as they come out!) by following my eBay profile. : )
