    I'm back to update you with my work I'm mostly employed as a comic artist right now (yay!), and one of the two comics I'm working on is also written by me. It is called "On this side of the Ditch" and it takes place in my hometown Montepulciano, tuscany. It tells the story of a swiss girl who moves here with her dad and she ends up dealing with aliens, other dimensions and such.
    I write it in italian, but I'm also roughly translating it in english, you can read it here: http://www.owletstudio.it/comics/al-di-qua-del-fosso/

    The title is the literal translation of a phrase people here commonly uses to distinguish themselves from the people who lives on the other side of "the ditch", which is the canal that divides the Chiana valley, and which separates the provinces of Siena and Arezzo. So we, the people from the Siena province, call the people from the Arezzo province "those who live on the other side of the ditch" as a goliardic dispregiative, because the senese valdichiana is much more prettier than the aretine half :P

    Here's a pretty sketch of Sophie, the main character:

    Thanks! Originally I was going for a more complicated pattern, inspired by a medieval gothic motif, but it looked too heavy and so I erased the whole thing :P this one is easier to draw and looks better eheh!

    I think I said this before but you have such a great way of drawing hair and fabric, capturing the way it falls and sways.
    Brilliant!

    Alessia, your work is beautiful! Those last two remind me a lot of Aya Kato, without the super saturated colors.
    Sometimes I think the so-called "experts" actually are experts.

    Oh I didn't know Aya Kato, her stuff is awesome! Thanks!

    Thank you everyone! I'm very glad you like my stuff! Now I'm trying to push myself to learn to draw better architecture and to make friends with colouring. I like colours but as you can see I tend to leave my linearts in black and white because I still haven't found a colouring technique I like/I'm good at. When I paint it's fine, but with linearts...anyway, here's what I'm working on right now, page 5 of my sci-fi comic (it will be in english but to write decent dialogues I need to put it in italian first):

    Tori's "Sleeps With Butterflies" video was inspired by the work of Aya Kato.

    Thanks I didn't know that! I think I've seen Kato's work before, because you don't forget this kind of beautiful works once you've seen them, but I didn't know the artist's name!
    There are so many wonderful artists out there, it's so inspiring, it's amazing the level of control they have over their skills Lately I discovered Sam Wolfe Connelly and man, wow!

    New pic! I realized I didn't make a new digital painting in a while and I don't want to get rusty at that, so here it is!
