I've been looking at some of my older comics lately...Yikes. I really have improved a lot since then...writing-wise as well as art wise. some of that dialog was just bad. I ended up actually making some major edits to one of the older pages because I just couldn't stand it, and now I really want to go back and fix all the old ones, at least their dialog.
And I imagine in a few years I'll look back at the stuff I'm doing now and feel the same way.
One of the classes I'm taking this semester is on scene design and drawing. I might finally learn to draw not-terrible backgrounds!
My printer/scanner broke. The new one should arrive soon...I hope. It's not fun handing in assignments and explaining to the professor that the printer only takes red ink for some reason.
I've been in a writing mood lately, so I'm gonna finish up the second Alone story and maybe do another short as well. I've also been messing with some new poses - profile shots, slouching, odd head angles, etc.
The next comic page should be soon. And maybe I'll actually get to return to the main cast sooner rather than later...I love Shiki and Liralee (they're definitely among my favorite characters) but they're supposed to be minor characters, I don't know how I ended up focusing on them. I guess I just liked drawing Shiki's hair.
I also just realized that I basically have a specific song I listen to for each character...sometimes my iPod will start playing that song and I'll instantly get a comic idea for that character. Maybe I should actually try to remember which songs I associate with which characters.
