Another ACEO I painted last weekend. I think I’m finally starting to get the hang of painting on these canvas sheets. Practice, practice, practice.

Progress – February 12, 2018

I have to wonder what I was thinking with Onesong. Really!?! Let’s take a story that I know has to happen before the Sacred Knight series and make it into a novel. Brilliant idea. Not! It’s like taking a skeleton you found lying around and deciding to put muscles and flesh on it.

Yeah, can you say, “Frankenstein’s monster”?

I must be just as mad as the good doctor.

Now here’s what may really surprise some of you: this story should have been told from Alityka’s point of view.  I really intended on it being her story. I have no bloody idea why I started telling it from Rivic’s vantage. None.  Well, okay, maybe an inkling. I remember thinking that I needed to tell the story of how Rivic build Lilinar.

Happy Groundhogs Day.

Here’s a recently painted ACEO. Don’t mistake it for me painting; that hasn’t happened, though I do hope to do some this weekend. Wish me luck on that.

I can’t say that I like working on this canvas material. I have a whole bunch of it from when I first started painting. I figured I’d try to use it up. I just can’t say that I’m a fan. I much prefer Bristol Board to paint the ACEO’s on. Lesson learned I guess.

Or maybe it just means that I need to get better.

Could be both.
