Two of my favorite panels from Corbie issue 2. By this point I felt like everything was starting to gel, and I was getting to grips with how the characters and pages of the comic should look. I also really loved seeing the chemistry between Morrigan and Corinne starting to develop. #readcmc #comics #comicbooks #mastoart
Comparison of the scrappy pen sketch that was the first ever illustration of Corbie with how the character looks today.
It doesn't feel fair to compare a scrappy pen doodle to the finished product, but I do find it interesting to look back and see how certain elements of the armour were retained or modified while other aspects were dropped, like the face mask.

"Thank you for giving me my voice."
Yikes. That just emotionally *wrecked* me. As someone who wouldn't be making comics if I hadn't been reading Transformers as a kid, that resonated with me on several levels.
Does anyone want me to toot about #Transformers here? I just wrote a lengthy Bee appreciation thread on my personal account on Birdsite to no response. 🙄
Corinne sported several different outfits in CMC issue 2, so multiple model sheets were required. For expediency they all used the same base art and were modified as required. This is the workshop look briefly seen when she's working on building the Corbie armor. Might be my favourite ensemble, and hopefully I'll get to draw it again in the near future... #mastoart #readcmc #comics
A panel from issue 2 of Corbie. One of my goals for this go-around was to produce much cleaner, simplified art. By the last few pages though, I kinda fell back into aspirations of being Gene Colan, utilising heavy blacks and hatchwork. It seemed to fit the literal and metaphorical darkening of the scene... #mastoart #readcmc #comics
ProTip: Take some time to go through your work folders add a proper date to your files.
Doesn't have to be the Master/Working files, you could do it on a backup copy. Just trust me on this one. I just spent the last day digging up old image files hunting for start dates. Many had no date on the image (like sketches I worked into digital pieces later), others were final pics I forgot to sign. The digital creation dates were charged during a HDD update.
Save yourself the pain. Date your files.
