Page 11 and Thesis Review

Page 11 up HERE.

Thesis review was today so today's update will be a short one. All the critiques they gave me were valuable and definitely confirmed what I'd known already for the most part. With that said, I'm always in this place of "do I go back and fix things now or do I wait till later to fix them?" when it comes to my pages.

I've learned a lot in this past while and even from chapter one to chapter two I know I've been able to loosen up and begin to finally get my work to look somewhere near where I want it to be. I think, now, having the benefit of what I've learned combined with a little more time freedom I really want to do more concept art and world building. The more environments I can really sink my teeth into and design the more fleshed out my city will be for my reader.

So, aside from thumbnailing Chapter Three and starting to ink Chapter Two, my main goal is going to be going through and making sure that any environment that I didn't get the time to or I didn't give myself the time to fit my characters into is given an equal level of attention.

So yeah, I'll probably be uploading pages that I'm not 100% currently happy with at the moment while I spend time reworking them. That's just how it's going to be because I want to keep the story moving. I know that there's still a lot for me to learn and that as I work my art will develop and that's just what happens. It also means that say a couple of months down the line I might re-update older pages with new art. I don't want this to take up too much time as I expect in a few years to need to update the whol project, but I want my best work to be online and this is how I work best.

On a final note, I love you guys more than you know. The Center for Cartoon Studies is a beautiful institution and the work they do here is so valuable to the promotion of comics as art and I know with total certainty that forgetting anything I have ever done or will do that the works of my classmates and the alumni of this school will have a major impact on the art form. It's truly history being made here.

Most likely sketches and other stuff up next week 'cause it's graduation time!
