"Noonan Vs.Pinchy (Skaldjur)”, work in progress, 2010 (l), 2014 (r).
I once made the observation to a friend that as long as your hard drive is in tact, the file isn’t corrupt and you have still have access to the software, digital painting (For me at least) is like an eternally wet canvas, that you could revisit at any moment. I still have a few incomplete/unfinished images on my hard drive, but I thought that this Chloe Noonan fan art was worth another chance for me to bring the image to completion.
In case you weren’t aware the Chloe Noonan comic by Marc Ellerby, which I first picked up at the MCM Expo back in 2009, is five years old this year. So I thought it was appropriate in a way to rework, update and complete the illustration.
This image will depict a scene from issue #2 of the comic. I thought that I show the compare and contrast of the original (Left) to the updated version (Right). I definitely needed to change the positioning of Chloe’s left eye and the frame of her glasses, and I particularly like the addition of the freckles and the lines on her plaid shirt.
I now have to work on Pinchy, who never received more than basic colouring…I’ll keep you updated, so stay tuned!

I’m actually blown away how incredible this is.
