The Tale of Horus, Chapter 3: The Dragg’n Catchin’ Pit

You’ve probably seen this on FA quite a while back, but I completely forgot to mention here that chapter 3 of the Tale of Horus is now available! You can read it here: https://www.marinaneira.com/horusindex (Just click on chapter 3.)

Working On Traditional Art! ๐ŸŽจ

Last Friday I worked on traditional art as much as possible, so I could color it during our weekend trip. I was able to finish two! Here are some photos of the process:

And here is the finished work! The first one is for Tugscarebear on FA of his character Grayson:

This one was for Kitsu!

These digitally colored sketches were kind of upgraded –the originals are actually pen and ink drawings that were carefully shaded and enhanced with different types of pencil. I normally keep my originals, but since I am trying to cover some debt, I am making the originals available for purchase to the commissions for an additional $50.00 plus shipping. The originals may lack markings or have minor imperfections, and any commissioner interested in purchasing an original will have the opportunity to review the original if interested in purchasing, to ensure these imperfections or missing markings aren’t a dealbreaker.

To any commissioner who is interested, please simply reach out to me via Telegram (MarinaNeira) Discord (MarinaNeira#1431) or email (marina@marinaneira.com).

WIPs And Such ๐ŸŽจ

I wanted to have a post where I displayed everything I have drawn since January 3rd, except: for my silly popsquelf GIF, the lavender star calf reference sheet and icon, and the Rosie + Ricky post header I drew for the blog. But bear in mind I did those as well.

Below is everything else, so far. Please do not use these line arts in any way, or repost them, or share them (even if you are the commissioner.) I just wanted to see them all in one place to remind myself that I am able to achieve this sort of speed and quality. I hope it sets a precedence for the rest of the year!
