    Didn't think I'd finish it tonight or I wouldn't have posted this earlier.

    I'm beginning to think that, for whatever reason, I can't print off Jasmine Beckett-Griffith grayscale pages. (Which sucks, because I think her grayscale is beautiful, even if a touch too dark.) The ink just seems to rub off for her, which doesn't make any sense.

    Here is the image I'm working on:

    Now here's a print of it I haven't started working on. Even though I haven't colored (much of) bottom girl, she's already blurry for whatever reason.

    [​IMG]

    That previous grayscale picture (blue dress girl) was Selina Fenech and printed with the same printer, but she didn't smudge. It's so weird.

    I just got new ink, so I want to blame that, but the last time I tried to print and color JBG grayscale it did this. I blamed the paper at the time. JBG's grayscales are much darker than Selina's, maybe that has something to do with it? Dunno, just kinda rambling at this point cause I'm bored.

    I don't know what the issue is, though I'm sure its some weird combo of paper/ink, but I'm in love that picture.

    Same. I'm pretty much exact copying the actual art work, it's too pretty

    Despite the weird smudging/flaking I think it turned out okay

    More patreonthings. Can't decide what color to do the wings. I'm coloring it for someone who likes blue so I was trying to make everything blue. I'm thinking a really dark blue would work for the wings? Maybe? (Still having ink flaking issues but it doesn't seem to be quite so bad?)

    Thanks, I had the idea of making it blue, but the light parts (that should probably be covered in white to look like light reflecting could be purple to make it look sorta iridescent? dunno haven't thought it through enoug yet

    :nope:

    I like the way the wings turned out, even if they lost most of the feathery detail.
