Velgrace Valedorna Graphic Novel Style by BJPentecost Velgrace Valedorna Graphic Novel Style by BJPentecost
*Le sigh.* If I did not have to worry about student loans, a condo, and assorted bills I would do this shit ALL day. It was fun (though difficult). I've been trying to get each panel down to under two hours and I've managed to average about 1.5 hrs per panel but some of the ones with complex shiz going on take up to or over 3 hrs. (Does anyone happen to know what the standard time is per panel in graphic novels is? I can't be too far off..... hopefully.)

If I was actually going to make a graphic novel out of this, I would need one of two things: To either be able to get each panel down to a half hour or my bills mysteriously poof forever. XD Seeing as how the second one probably isn't an option, I'm hoping to be able to churn out a panel per hour tops.

Zbrush/Photoshop. Average of 1.5 hrs per panel. The character is Velgrace which means "the most graceful" in his home tongue, Farscene. He has been with me for a while now and BOY has be gone through some changes. XD He started out as a damsel in distress, became more of a dudesel in distress, and now he is a kicker of asses. XD Not sure how that happened but I think I like him better this way.

So awesome. I think 1.5 hours is already impressive enough lol

Tell the truth! You got 'And I cannot Lie" from Taj Mahal, didn't you? As in 'I like big bootys and i cannot lie'? Can't remember for sure what song......maybe 'Big Leg Mamas Are Back In Style Again'? *giggles*

The only thing that bothers me about that boy is his long tail.... I am probably being so sexual, but I guess if that isn't a problem not only to dress but in sexual relationships.... I can't imagine it isn't.... The tail is impressing thought, lovely done.

Weird reason I've never done my nankinis (half anthro dwarfs catboys) with a tail: they would enjoy sex far less (in my unexperiences opinion about anthros)

I love the pannel where he tries to cut your head out of your torso. I think he looks lovely and the pose is so difficult from that angle so 10 points to gryffindor.

I have to say I quite like the whole painting, even if I am a too bad at english to get the jokes *sigh*

It's, like all you do, a piece of art.

I must say, my friend introduced me to your works, and I have been fully enjoying them, since then. I will post a link to my G+ account today to this.
