Around late March, dcb did a little doodle of Waterfire, which is a sparkledog he made back when some folks in the group were poking at old-school sparkledog stuff for fun.
We’ve been wanting to do some more collaborative work for a while yet. Currently, we’ve got Devon working on a character for the Apricot Bay Post Office (among some other brand new OCs that might get a blog post soon), and a few rooms set up for various flavors of Somnolians working on pieces with each other.
About a week ago now (…? time…), I decided to kick it off. I asked dcb for a sketch I could line, and he gave me that Waterfire. I got a bit off-base with the original sketch, but the next morning, I’d lined and colored it (uh, to the best of my abilities):
First time drawing a feral, is wonky. (I think I like the sketch better honestly.) But fun! And Waterfire’s colors are amusingly coherent and fun to color in for how sparkledog-y he is. I knew people with serious designs that didn’t look as good.
Hoping for more collabs when we’ve all got the time for them!
One comment on "The First Proper Somnol Art Collab!"
Liking the sketch better is unfortunately common…
This is very cute! I’ve done collabs with people every now and again where, usually, I do the sketch and lineart and they color. Always a blast, and can’t wait to see more art on the blog.
