More redone portraits

I seem to be going on a bit of an artwork refactor bend lately. These are intended to go with my next compilation, whenever that will be released, and I have a few more planned.

Character Sketches: The O’Rourke parents

More sketches done over the weekend, courtesy of an old scanner my parents had lying around.

They’ve had more page time in the longer novel I had originally worked on, but I’d like to bring them more into focus.

New images (and another recording)

I sketched these on Saturday evening and Sunday morning. The first one is one that’s been kicking around my skull for a while; most of the stories that involve Diarmuid mention that he wears sunglasses for some unexplained reason…and the other is my first sketch of a “banshee”. I haven’t really touched on the banshees much past one story where a single banshee was being executed by a pack of snakes, but I’m considering that for my next story.

I also recorded myself painting in (most of) the second one. After about 45-odd minutes, I decided to cut the recording while I faffed around with the background.
