Hestia-Edwards's Profile Picture
Hestia-Edwards

Artist | Student | Traditional Art
United States
I drew various things while in childhood and high school (actually, mostly dragons). After an art hiatus, I decided to try drawing comics. From July 2014 to April 2017 I drew pages for the comic "Concerning Rosamond Grey". Currently I'm writing the script and world-building for my second comic, and improving my art technique.

With my comics, I have two goals: one, to improve my comic art to a professional level; and two, to achieve this goal using only traditional methods. I get my inspiration from the works of Osamu Tezuka, Hagio Moto, Shigero Mizuki and Keiko Takemiya. I would also like to try having no physical or digital screen tone.

...Hi, friends. 

I confess I haven't done much in art lately: I've been having work-related stresses, and am currently looking for a new job. I'm trying not to be anxious, as I'm confident that God will provide another job for me, but sometimes I'm still anxious.

Today, I decided to take it easy and work on comic-related stuff.  I was working on the timeline for Lady Halaina's kidnapping (going month-by-month rather than week-by-week--more feasible). I was also working on character designs. 

The latest development with Nansha, my constructed language, is the debate of whether to have it written right-to-left rather than the typical Western orientation of left-to-right. My thinking was this: I figured Shas would primarily be left-handed (you'll notice that Elaishar primarily uses his left in the CRG comic). As left-handers tell me, it's a pain to write left-to-right, especially when using wet ink. So I'm training my left hand to write better, and using my right to make the letters "pretty". 

I've also taken feedback on my latest ink work (thanks to GPAD ), so you can see the new version here:

WIP: Elaishar and Halaina, Take 2 by Hestia-Edwards

I am also participating in an online coloring class, with coloring assignments of the instructor's art. 

Talk to you later (hopefully sooner than later),

Hestia.
