Just like my fellow comic artist, Cara McGee, I was really looking forward to the winter break. I planned on improving my inks, finishing up a short story I started last semester, and working on WM. I haven't been able to do much of this, except for a few character studies and solidifying the scene breakdown for WM. There are several other projects that I want to work on, and some that I just won't let go (yes, Jonas, I still have The Inspired on my mind).
I've lately been very inspired, if not intimidated, by the skills of a fellow SCAD-Atlanta student. I'm trying to channel this into working harder on my art and developing my particular style. I grew up in the age of the great Jim Lee, so I always strived to replicate his way of drawing people. I find much more compelling, however, the way that Chris Schweizer designs characters or the way that Shawn Crystal works his inks. I have to find the style that speaks most to my sensibilities and way of seeing the world, and how to inject that into my comics!
I've obviously been thinking a lot lately. But I have to DO it!
The last time that James Lucas Jones visited SCAD-Atlanta, he said that my ink lines look reluctant, so the firsty first thing that I'm going to hardcore work on will be my inks. I want to make my art as awesome as possible!!
I haven't posted any images in a while. This is mostly due to the fact that, since getting my iMac (it's the sexist machine ever!), my scanner seems to connect to my computer only about 30% of the time, which is just weird. I bet that there's some totally hot computer dork who'll come over to my house and work out what the hecks is wrong.
Which reminds me: In my new house, I'll have an actual studio. This means that I'll have a room (totally separate from the room that keeps my bed and all my clothes) dedicated to my computer, my art, and my video games. There'll be a futon and an attached bathroom, so you're totally welcome to sleep over.
