Working on the next chunk of pages for Lone Star is really hard when you get too irritated at one of your own OC's. XD I'M TALKING ABOUT YOU, GREGORY UGH
I want to finish the rest of Volume 1 for Lone Star -- which should probably be about 30 or so pages. After that, I'll be able to work on other fun little comics for a little while. (Like that Aeriseph fluff-mush-don't-try-too-hard-or-worry-about-real-life comic XD) I want to be able to sell volume 1 and some Lone Star fun paraphernalia/goodies at some local comic cons later this year if at all possible! SO that means LOTS of work!
Thanks for hanging in there with me, guys. I really think you will enjoy this last bit of Lone Star that I have spent so many hours agonizing over these few years. Writing science fiction is hard! I thought I knew enough science to kinda guess my way through but NOPE I had to go study and research alot of stuff on top of what I knew. This matters to me because I want the character's experience to almost feel like a simulation - as if you or I would encounter the same issues had we been in their shoes. I guess it's a bit hard for me to express clearly, but I hope you know what I mean.
I apologize to everyone who I said I was going to do an art trade with and quickly canceled. There's much to do in my life right now that has suddenly popped up (which isn't necessarily a BAD thing this time around) and I am trying to balance it all with prioritizing my own projects (Lone Star!) over other non-real-life obligations. To break things up a bit, I will sketch some random stuff in between, but rest assured that I am sketching and planning manga pages of Lone Star behind the scenes. Camera angles and perspective and storyboarding are hard. I kinda wish I had been an art major or something XD Oh well! I'll just try to learn as I go and consult Dr. Internet if I really get stumped. Just curious - how many of you are self-taught artists? If you did receive formal art training in the form of courses or lectures or university degrees, etc, did you feel that it was a good investment and greatly improved your skills?
