Decided to go through my old art and I just had the urge to redraw an old comic cover of mine. This is the result of a sleepless night XD
So I was looking through folders upon folders of old art, to sort them out into something manageable and I stumbled across this old cover. I did it for an unfinished comic and I thought jokingly, “Hey, I could totally do that better now”. As it turns out, I can. I didn’t really think there’d be a huge improvement since I haven’t been doing much digital art in terms of people and faces.
The comic as far as I remember was about the kid’s soul being split and put into the cloak. So the human was called Alexander and the cloak was called Alex. As the story progressed Alex got stronger and started to form some kind of corporeal form and I think he turned evil? It was really strange Poorly thought out too.
The comic was my first forays into digital painting. I’m not really sure if it was done with a tablet. Because at that point I was trying out the pen tool to do my lines. I really don’t get how people use that tool… it’s super tedious.
