[#6] Paperlegends 2011: Work in Progress Art  
Here are the work-in-progress for the 3 images I did for springinstep's Merlin Big Bang fic for paperlegends 2011.

The story can be found here, and all completed images are right here



Merlin and Arthur meet the bandits

This one started off in my sketch pad, then I put it onto the computer and did the line art and colouring digitally. This was a test in drawing Arthur without showing most of him, and also tested my patience with hands XD;

Percival

This one I did straight onto the computer which was a challenge. There were more stages, but I forgot to save them separately. This gave me a chance to play with perspective, and I've never drawn Percival/Tom Hopper before so that was a learning curve as well. His muscley arms proved a bit of a fiddle.

File name used: O Percival u so manly

Gwen

I just really wanted to draw one of the girls with a sword, and it gave me a chance to practice a more dynamic pose. I did use a stock reference for the pose which helped me to See better. The slightly crouching pose was a real challenge, as was the hand not holding the sword. Sketch pad nearly went out the window I have to admit.
