I am drawing comics! MUAHAHAHA!
Yes, for the first time in about two months, I'm starting back on my comics. I have my Ice page drawn for this Sunday, and have most of my D101 pages roughed out. And it's just like riding a bicycle! MUAHAHAHAHA!
... which is sort of strange, because I usually find I get extremely rusty when I don't do my comics regularly, but the D101 pages were pretty easy. I like drawing Isaac & Maddy being all lovey-dovey. It's like drawing porn! Only not anything like it! Yay!
I actually read Episode 5 recently (I have all the files on my comp, so I can view the comic without suffering the download time; am on a modem, yanno). It was interesting to read, I don't normally read my own comics. I like the art in the later pages, but because it's been such a long episode (I started it October 2002), my art skills have sharpened quite a bit over the course of it, so consequently, I'm unhappy with the early artwork.
... although it doesn't take much for me to be unhappy with my artwork, as I have absolutely no self esteem, and a ragged, beaten ego.
But I liked the later art (after page 50 or so), especially when I started shading with Painter 6 & 8, as opposed to classic. It helped a lot, I think. And the fight scenes actually impressed me. Especially liked John & Grey's fight ... there's just something about two hot guys beating on each other ... and then the underwater thing ... oh, sorry, drifted off there.
I think the Episode benefited a lot from having no plot. I mean, really, it has no plot: Gabe & Poe get kidnapped, everybody teams up to rescue them. End of story. But it's a good thing; it allowed a lot of character interaction, and since it's the last D101 episode, I tried to allow every character some kind of moment.
Grey's cool, too. I gotta draw him shirtless sometime. I bet he's got more tattoos.
Okay, end random moment of self-indulgence!
He just drew a kickass Icefanart.
