Been drawing lots of bodies because I’m terrified of those sucking. When I should be terrified of everything else sucking.
Sorry for lack of posts. I’ve been sick? I don’t know if I can really call it sick. My whole body hurts, throat feels swollen, and I have this strong discomfort in my chest. Going to the doctor soon. Let’s hope it isn’t serious.
Sorry for the long period of silence. I’ve been taking some time to recoup and mull over Baltimore Comic Con. it was GREAT! Certainly the best comic con experience I’ve had so far. I got to meet Brian Stelfreeze, who was such a friendly person that it was astonishing. He literally talked to me for about 45 minutes on my work that I had with me.
He explained that my work was solid, but I was trying to hide my flaws with my knowledge of figure drawing. Which isn’t going to get me hired/noticed. He insisted that I figure out what sort of artist I wanted to be. Action like Jim Lee? Macabre like Mike Mignola? I had to find the voice of my work and work on that. Without it, my work wouldn’t improve. He also gave me a run down on perspective and scene building. Told me to watch my favorite movies and analyze my favorite scenes and learn how to build them correctly. “Be a director as well as an artist” as he put it.
Brian Stelfreeze greatly increased my confidence in my work and was really the highlight of the con for me. Right now I’m trying to find comics that evoke different feelings so I can analyze the art style and figure out what i’m missing. I’ll be back to posting art soon.
Baltimore Comic-Con is less than 2 weeks away, and I just drew the worst panel I’ve drawn in a while lol.
Erasers are the real MVP when it comes to comics.
Like, what blows me the most is that the last I heard of Robin Williams was that he was battling depression. If this is related, then it hits pretty close to home for me. I don’t know what he could have been going through, but depression is a bitch. Finding myself almost constantly depressed and others I know, please make an effort to talk to your loved ones. Help then through all the crap the world continues to just dump on people.
RIP Robin Williams
