I figured I'd write an update about myself and my projects here just in case anyone was interested. (Anyone? No? Aww ok...)
First off I'm happy to announce that after a long time of trying I've finally managed to get accepted into my country's one and only art university. So yay. I shall become a "REAL" artist soon! I hope...We'll see...
If by chance anyone still remembers there was a time when I was trying to start a comic series. But it's been on hiatus for some time now.
There was a few reasons for it. The main reason being that I hadn't really fleshed out the world and the storyline yet and because of that it was constantly changing in my head and creating inconsistencies that all needed to be figured out before I could continue drawing. That's mainly because I wanted the first chapters to have a lot of foreshadowing for later events but it's kinda hard to do that when those events keep changing.
I needed time to properly sort things out so I could create something that's actually believable and doesn't just feel randomly put together. After a while there came the second problem - I started to really dislike the art style of the pages I had already done so I needed to figure out a better technique + brush up on my anatomy 'cause if I can't properly draw people in different poses without it looking kinda off I don't want to take on a huge project like this.
Over the past year I've not really drawn any full illustrations which is why I haven't been posting here. Instead I've been working really hard on improving my skills and searching for a style I could call my own. I haven't really had much luck in the style department yet but I think I'm at a level where I can restart my comic project. I feel I have a better grasp on anatomy now and am more able to think in 3 dimensions when it comes to thinking up poses....if that makes sense.
Unlike the first time I'm not just gonna jump blindly into it though and instead am at the moment organizing my chapters in text form beforehand to make sure the story will flow well and nothing important is left out.
I have already restarted work on chapter one so I hope to start posting that soon.
Fortunately my head is full of ideas for illustrations too so I want to upload more of those too.
I might not post much right away though since my hand has been in this weird-ass pain for quite some time now. I am drawing but since it's painful it takes time atm to finish a picture.
I'm going to see a doctor about this soon and hopefully they'll be able to find the problem and fix it.
All the best,
