I've been trying out the free Paint Tool SAI over the weekend, a fun and powerful little package with a wealth of brush options. I haven't used all the features to their full potential yet, but I've been having fun.
Just finished the REBEL AGAINST HEAVEN image on the left, a shot of Tyler flying. This was just a messing around doodle to try out the brushes on wings, and it was fun to do. I can't get his face right, though -- I tried about five different expressions before calling it a night. So right now the face looks annoyingly lifeless.
I'll come back and fix it another day, I think, and I'll probably work on the anatomy while I'm at it.

Work on the GIANT ROBOTS WIP is going well, though I'm at the sticky middle now (30k words). I've also been asked to do a revision on REBEL AGAINST HEAVEN, which I'll be tackling shortly once I've got a handle on all the changes ahead. And did I mention the day job's gotten a lot busier, on top of all of this?
The blog might go quiet for a little bit during the next month or two while I get my head down and get things done, but I'll still be hanging around on Twitter.
Good luck to all the blog friends who're gearing up for NaNoWriMo. I won't be taking part, but I'll be working away alongside you!
