Hello, everybody. You may have seen my icon on a few of Lexi’s DA postings or heard her reference me; my name is Joe – alienyouthct on DeviantArt – and I’m her all-purpose coconspirator, muse, sounding board, and menial laborer. A large part of what will show up here is stage-by-stage work of pieces she does either for my fan fiction or just to amuse the two of us, since those are the ones I understand best and can explain. After all, I’m the king of the keyboard while she prefers to do her work with the tablet’s stylus. Rather than attempting to backtrack and deconstruct one of her recent pieces, we’re going to go step-by-step and document how she gets from that big empty white expanse in Photoshop to the pieces you all comment on when you visit her DeviantArt account using our newest collaborative project:
As the post title promises and the logo in the upper right confirms, it’s… well, the Great Lakes Avengers. Assembling. Each of the characters was done in a different color to help differentiate them at a casual glance. Apart from that… well, um, there’s seven of them? The leader has a shield. One of them is pretty honking big? And there’s a spider-person. Sorry, no spoilers until the next installment of this series at the earliest. But don’t worry. There will be more stages of this shown off here. Probably more than you want to see. It’ll be fun though! Promise!
