Comic Project- Half of Rough Draft

The gutters of this image are very important, both in their direction, as well as orientation. They give importance to panels, and direct the reader through the page.

Figure Drawing- Faster Pose Drawing Method

Coming from a video a peer showed me, this was a method of making drawing the figure much faster and more fluid. Whereas many begin with a stick figure and fill it out with shapes, with this method you do extremely rough shapes, and create the figure from there. It takes out an entire step, and creates a figure that is less stiff.

Comic Concept Art

Character Creation is starting slow, but should pick up soon.

It’s hard to come up with something without being reminded of other pieces of your life that have subconsciously spilled into your work, but if that never happened, you wouldn’t be you.

What kind of behavior makes someone an artist?

An artist has to be committed to their work, making it the best they can. I do not feel that I am committed to my work. I feel a disconnect from most of the things that I do, and that creating certain things that do not interest me, I do not feel the drive to do them or complete them to the best of my ability.

My work flow is in complete solitude, while going through an information overload. I cannot be connected to anyone, I must be alone, whether physically or mentally, to do my work efficiently and quickly. At the same time, I need something playing in the background as I work, whether it be music or a podcast.

Illustrated Journal: Week 4-Day 1

Simply put my hero is my father. I may not agree with all of his views, but he is still the person I look up to the most. He is very caring about his family, be it his children, wife, brothers, sisters, cousins, anyone in relation or friendship. He is extremely social and works hard for my family, doing the night shift for almost 30 years. That is the kind of dedication I would like to put into my own work.
