Pintail no. 3 -in the works- by FrothingLizard Pintail no. 3 -in the works- by FrothingLizard
"...and the burning bridges."

Another fake cover in the works.

Fernando is mine

[Edit:]
Coloured - I had a HUGE problem with the background, colours and the likes and would LOVE some suggestions of maybe links to other tutorials. I wanted to give this piece that certain cartoon-cover-vibe, and I don't feel I managed to do so. I was thinking about tweaking the colours, and only use purple/blue/green hues; but it didn't really add up.
So hope you have ideas or suggestions or a few tips.

Love the design work :D I think you did good on the background. I never have the ambition to do backgrounds much :P

Unfortunately backgrounds are such an essential thing with comic ^^;

Oh!! Crazy idea, what if the reflection of the bridge in the water showed it being on fire but not the actual bridge itself? Maybe? Dunno...I'll go sit down now, heh.

Actually that COULD work... When I have time I might just fiddle with that idea :plotting:
Thanks :)

Hmmm....I like the colors a lot for the background. First off, the eyes are amazing. Let's see...maybe if you angled the bridge a little more towards us and made the outlines a little darker and sharper? Hope that helps!

Whoa, awesome close-up on Nando and Kachka. Especially their eyes, the lighting on them is just plain beautiful. And I love those tiny little tufts of feathers on the brinks of their beaks. It's a little thing, but I think it really adds to making them look more realistic. Eh. You know, for anthropomorphic ducks.

Glad you like it :)
I'm just happy having the chance to involve Kachka in my 'projects'... Any excuse for drawing her ;)

The romance of the ages!
I knew I recognised that beautiful eye, even in the thumbnail. XD You always manage to make it twice as wonderful to make up for the fact that she only has one.
