What the title says (it was supposed to be ITT:WIP at first but this one is clearer). You probably don't hatch your drawings at release state right away, do you? I decided to make this thread in this section because it's not really advertisement even though your posts can double as sneak peeks of your comics, and it's not critique although other posters are, of course, welcome to make suggestions on what their fellow comicfur... ians (?) are showcasing, letting them catch mistakes in advance.
This thread is for things you're going to stick in your next comics, as opposed to what you're going to post on the "unrelated art" thread.
Oh, and of course, works in progress, yeah. Here, have this. I drew the kid too short, I'll need to enlarge him. And that thigh, man. That thigh, it's weird as hell.
Wow, that looks really good to me! Good idea for a thread. It's really interesting and educational for me to see how other artists work their magic. I do tend to "hatch drawings at release state," so maybe I need to try a new approach in order to improve. On the other hand, I also like the spontaneity and vivace of something direct from the subconscious, as a kind of humanization, rather than the robotization and commodification of formalized art.
Wayne Zero:Here's a sneak peak at Judgment Vol. 2.
Wow those are really nice pencils, but I got to say your inking and coloring take away from these amazing pencils. The inking makes the details kind of blurred and you lose some of the smaller bits, and the coloring is very amatuerish, which isn't a bad thing, it just don't fit your drawing style. I know this isn't really a critique thread, but your pencil just made my jaw drop.

There's a bit of confusion here.
I only wrote this stuff and played editor to put it together. Federico Zumel did pencils on the first part, and Alexnadre Benhossi penciled the second.
I'd like to address what you say, so I'll start a new thread in the Critiques section.
Sketch version of the next Emperor Gale's Exposition Corner page. I still need to sort out the burly fellow in the fourth panel a bit, and it turns out I missed the box around one of the sentences in the second panel.
Sometimes I also reword the narration boxes slightly, but I don't think I'll need to this time...
There's some lovely stuff in here! I just love seeing what other artists are up to.
And now, a shot of Hera at her desk (I didn't forget the wedding band this time) with her kiddies, notorious twin assholes Ares and Eris. I sort of forgot to upload the lastest version of the sketch, that had a Newton's cradle on the desk and a chair.
Aeden:...uh I don't have GIMP. Could you give me the skinny on what it does, regardless?
That addon just takes lineart, replicates it, then fills all the white areas of one of the copies in various colours (one per area). It then expands the colour areas so that the coloured layer has no more actual line art.
So basically, you get one layer of line art, and underneath is one layer of colours. That allows the artist to easily flood-fill the coloured areas without damaging the line art.
Obligatory WIP. The grey stuff, that will be somewhat transluscent with a sort of effect on it, isn't the actual background of the image (everything's happening in an office). It's a rendition of what Artemis is saying.
