The Great White Beyond

January 24, 2020

 

Welcome to a brave new world called: Format Change.

There have been a number of staples in the style of Ellory the Shark that have nagged at me over the years. Things like fixed brushes that are slightly transparent by default, a static-sprayed shading technique that drowned out details and unique brushes for handwriting dialog for specific characters. I loved these trademarks but at times they have also been keeping me from being able to draw more detailed images and fit as much text as I would like.

 

Now that Ellory’s in a completely different world I felt like it was an opportunity to try out a completely different style as well. Also, not gonna lie, this is easier to draw and shade.

 

But that doesn’t mean the old style is dead, either. We haven’t seen the last of Lodestone Bay.
