Kicking Off

Okay. So I’m finally starting to get ElfGrove.com up and running. Took me a while to get WordPress functioning, and then figuring out how to do a rounded-edge box for the primary layout without using gifs. (I’m stubborn like that.) I still need to tweak the colors a bit, but I like nice, simple layouts for my websites. While WordPress is cool now that I’m figuring it out, I don’t want my entire site run on it. I feel like everyone’s doing that, and it’s starting to look disturbingly uniform.

The front page right now features my most recently completed art piece, a set of character avatars illustrated for a friend’s RP character. The character is Cecil, a prince-type character at an all-girls school. You can see the progress images after the jump.

Inked sketches, pencil lines still visible. I also included my friend’s notes as to what emotions she wanted portrayed in the avatar images.

The cleaned inks with flat colors applied to two of the drawings, and a cap of the original sprite of the character’s design.

The finished and shaded images with basic color backgrounds.
