I had a lot of fun playing with lighting on this page. Originally I was planning to make the right side of Renar’s face blacked out with a hard shadow, but I changed my mind when I was working on it. I’m still going back and forth if I made the right choice. With dramatic spot blacks, you really have to commit to them for them to look good, and I always get too attached to my details, even to the detriment of the piece overall.
The most favorable opinion Renar could give on Warren would probably be that his brother is an unformed piece of clay. He can be shaped and fired, and perhaps one day, after a good deal of work, he might make an excellent tool.
(Were Tama present, he might lean in at this point and suggest that Warren is already a tool, he’s just not a very useful one.)
(Of course, if Mizha were present, she might have to remind Tama that he’s not exactly what a lot of people would consider useful either.)
Ah…the loving support of siblings. So helpful. So kind. So fraught with Zingers.
Ever gotten a good zinger in with a sibling (by blood or bond)?
