I mentioned the wonderful new avatar that Calomiel, the French artist and comic creator, drew from me on this blog last week. What I didn’t know was that as she worked on the avatar,from sketch to ink to final art, she saved each stage, and used them to produce this marvelous GIF!
It’s nice to see Calomiel’s art as it progresses. And I’m thrilled; I’ve never been a GIF before! You can see the original on her blog here, and other work-in-progress GIFs (and so much more) as well. Merci, Calomiel!
