so i have this comic one-shot i’ve been wanting to do for a few years, and i’m really excited about a lot of it, but i’ve been reluctant to finalize the script and start drawing because i’m not sure whether i’m overstepping my bounds on the central issue in the comic.
ok here’s a rundown of all the stuff i want to do right now:
- finish this comic page so i can scan the latest pages and shade them
- work on the rest of the comic by the end of the summer
- at least two pictures for the xenogears fanbook by january
- at least two pictures for my drawing group’s artbook by end of next winter
- an acrylic painting or something, possibly a trad version of ‘my head is a room without doors’
- lots of legend of mana fanart
- illustrate events in some of my stories that i will never get around to actually making full comics for
- come up with story ideas for a comic for my boyfriend to draw so we can make a back-to-back comic book!!
- tutotials/guides explaining certain concepts about light that i learned as a physicist but are helpful for art
gosh what!! i think i need to start getting up earlier… i totally have a cold and a sore throat right now too… it’s impossible to choose where to start!
my medication gives me jitteriness in my arms that sometimes lasts all day and i’m discovering it’s impossible to make anything nice on paper haha fuck…. guess i’m not working on my comic today
then again maybe it’ll help me not be so uptight about my lines, my comic work is so stiff
it’s not like my arms are actually shaking but it FEELS like they are so i end up like gripping my pencil too tight to compensate and it’s hard to relax so i end up just making lines willy-nilly because i know if i try to be precise it’ll end up all wiggly
KORRA SPOILERS (about voice acting)
i don’t think i mentioned this yet but i’m so glad i took a break from my comic! i feel like i’m coming out of my art block, i finished blue-sketching the page i left off on and it looks so much better. going more slowly but more deliberately. yay
i like, forgot how to draw things that aren’t just shapes, everything is so flat and undetailed (in a bad way) and i think it’s because of this comic, i just draw the same people over and over so i simplified everything to the max but now it just looks boring and i can’t snap out of it!! i like, reverted back to drawing elements instead of the whole, like before you understand structure and just draw eyes and noses a certain way because you are trying to develop a ‘style’ but it doesn’t all fit together, why is this happening to meeeeeeee
i forgot how to arttttttt *explodes*
so last night for some reason i actually had a WHOLE EVENING where i didn’t feel any anxiety feelings like something in the pit of my stomach or tingling in my arms IT WAS GREAT… i had completely forgotten what it felt like.
it’s back today though, but it feels more like it’s just some weird…
i had good night for once!
i’m not gonna be drawing that new comic i was talking about, at least not for a while, it’s actually super personal and i don’t think now’s the right time to be putting that stuff out there. i still kinda like the idea and have the brainstorming file saved and whatnot but yeah. i might do it later.
still not working on magical key story, but not because i don’t want to, it’s more just like i haven’t worked on it for so long that i’m kind of just used to not working on it <__> maybe if someone gives me a punch i’ll start it again. i’m seriously halfway through, can’t just not finish it ever!
mostly just been getting back into illustrations lately. my comic drawings look SO FLAT for some reason, feel like i gotta work on form and expressive poses so i don’t fall back into the rut when i work on the comic again
