Colour Test Illustration 01: The Gish Sisters.
Here's a simple pre-production colour test piccy I did a few weeks ago, of Chelsea (right) and her little sister Millie. They're the principal characters from the new comic series I'm developingóthe name of which is Chelsea and Millie
, cos I am just soooo imaginative when it comes to thinking up titlesówith my good pal and fellow comicmaker Tom Szewc, or
You might remember these young ladies from the two older designs that I posted on DA some time ago, here [link]
and here [link]
As you can see I've made a few alterations to both girls' designs here, most notably Chelsea's hair. I rather like Chelsea's outfit here. She enjoys wearing all sorts of outfits and out of the two of them Chelsea's personal clothing style is my favourite, generally speaking.
So yes, this is a "colour test", something I did to suss out a few things about the girls' basic colour palette. No background required.
In a few hours' time I shall be posting the second Chelsea and Millie
colour test picture that I did, which does
feature a background, and also features their parents.
Those of you who haven't seen it might also be interested in this rather old Chelsea and Millie
two-page comic which I did in 2009 for a British comics anthology, even merely for a point of comparison between their initial slapdash design to this more streamlined look.
Comic goodness awaits: [link]Chelsea and Millie are © M. Jaimz Sims and Thomas D. Szewc.
