I may as well make myself useful and knock in some of the background for this YCH. Normally I like to work from the characters out but I kinda can't do that until the auction's over and I have model sheets in hand. So, I swipe some cloud styles from another piece and start modifying them to fit the overall palette I want. Took me about an hour, including some fucking around. It's really great to be able to swash in a loose line that defines where Illustrator will then do a bunch of fiddly, fluffy bullshit for me!

I've really been *looking* at clouds lately, and thinking about how to properly render them. There's a lot of gorgeous clouds down here in the tropics.

Normally I just have one reference layer, with all the ref arranged off the side of the canvas.

This... this seems to require some different strategies.

hahaha whoops I just realized this dude was supposed to be the servant with the drinks tray, not the Quing/Keen! Oh well, I got his colors set up last night and only blew like 15min doodling in his basic shapes, mistakes happen.

Lesson: double-check this kinda shit I guess? It clearly says "servant" in the little chart I'm making off on the side. Okay I think the lesson is that I should have made this little set of layers BEFORE starting to draw anyone.

Time to get to drawing I guess.
