Join me, Shell Presto DiBaggio, as I talk about why we changed our book cover design for East End Irregulars: After Dark. I talk about what worked, what didn't, and how our customers responded to our book covers.

I also talk about asking for help when you need it, and not needing to be an artistic jack of all trades. Yep, I admit it, as of the time of this video, I'm not the greatest digital artist. Special thanks to Karin Wittig for her assistance. ( https://karinwittig.com/ )

I, Shell Presto DiBaggio, stay up way too late getting ready for ParanoiaCon in Lebanon, PA.

Join me for a taste of my con prep. I sort through my Ascension Epoch coaster inventory, picking some older ones out for the clearance bin, and show you our convention handout fliers that give a taste of our East End Irregulars and Challenger Confidential books. I'll also talk about my rationale in flier design.

Bexim's Bazaar No. 6 can be downloaded free through this link:
https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/278535/Bexims-Bazaar-Issue-6

Join Shell Presto DiBaggio as she draws a selkie fighter in the style of old RPG books like the Dungeons & Dragons manuals, Palladium RPG books, and GURPS manuals.

While I draw, I'll talk about how hard it can be as a new Dungeon Master to remember all the details of your setting like NPC names and town names. I'll talk about how I solved that problem when I was a new Dungeon Master in college, and hopefully leave you with some tips and tricks to do the same.

I also talk about how to make a character who is underwater *look* like they are underwaterwear, and read an excerpt from an upcoming Martian War Chonicles book featuring everbody's favorite selkie, Maurine Marine, meeting the Ascension Epoch's Signalman.

This artwork appears in Issue No. 3 of Bexim's Bazaar. It can be purchased through this link:
https://www.drivethrurpg.com/browse/pub/14035/The-Tabletop-Engineer
Issue No. 0 is also available through the above link for free. It's a quality issue, even though it lacks my awesome RPG-style art.

Join Shell Presto DiBaggio at a small, local craft fair where she explains what she has on her table and why. I'll discuss changing your table for the size of the venue, the difference between setting up to advertise and setting up to sell, and having different expectations at craft fairs opposed to comic book conventions.

As you can see, I sell books. Learn more about the Ascension Epoch books I've co-written and illustrated, as well as the Ascension Epoch in general, here:

Join Shell Presto as she works on the first Incorrigible IMPS strip and discusses why when starting your first comic book, you should keep it short.

She also discusses compression and decompression in modern Marvel and DC comics vs. classic comics and manga and just how much artists like Jack Kirby, John Byrne, Rumiko Takahashi, and Akira Toriyama can fit in four to six pages.

In a previous video, I did a traditional watercolor piece using an underpainting and glaze method. Unfortunately, I washed out some of my highlights. I could have added them back in with gouache, but instead I thought I'd do some Photoshopping.

This video will cover how I use the computer to adjust the contrast, add highlights and lighten areas, and put a little more life and red tones into the lips on this traditional piece.

Join Shell Presto DiBaggio as she paints a man's portrait using watercolors and the underpainting technique.

While I draw, we'll discuss which paints I use for my underpainting and glazes and what properties to consider, how I choose colors, and the way I like to paint eyes, among other tips and tricks.

The video home of artist Shell Presto DiBaggio.

I draw, color, and paint, both on paper and on the computer. You can watch me, and maybe pick up some tips along the way. I'll show you everything I do from pencils to inks, from watercolors to markers (Copics being my favorite), from Post-it Note drawings to full comic pages. And I'll talk about my experiences as an artist, both professional and personal.

You can visit AscensionEpoch.com to see more of my art (as well as my writing).
