Could also be considered the "Chordata wants to take over my gallery because she is a selfish goat lady" year. But that won't fit...
Since 2011 has passed and 2012 has begun, I found it a good a time as any to submit this!
I have mixed feelings on my art of 2011. I do feel I improved a heck of a lot, but in different ways than just my techniques. I have learned GREATLY in how to better tell stories through comics (and even literature for that matter), how to better develop characters, how to better do comics in general, how to manage my time with deadlines, and just all around how to have the patience and determination to stay on a single project for so long. While I did improve on anatomy a good deal, I don't think I improved in my digital techniques all that well since the majority of my comics were done traditionally. In a way I think they made me lose a bit of patience in digital work (I can barely tolerate digitally lining things like I used to) but I suppose I just have been thrown off my groove and need to work my way back in.
I have also learned from my mistakes of story telling and will use those to better myself. I don't regret anything I have done this past year with #Tapestry-of-Horror
, and even if I didn't win, I take great
pride in managing second place. Heck, I didn't even know I would make it past Round 1! And making it to the end gave me the best challenge I've ever experienced, and I'd never take it back. There were many things I should have changed, but it was all a learning process and one I really enjoyed.
Honestly the only big regret I have from this past year is my lack of work on The Selection
. I really pray that my muse for it hasn't been drained from not working on it for so long. I hope to take all I learned from my ToH work and put it into TS in order to improve even more and making it the best I can. Hopefully with learning deadline management I can stick to something for once. Though with school I dunno how well that'll do. Either way, I hope this year brings more TS and more stuff with my new character Linda and #DiabolusAdventures
as I really enjoy working on that too. Chordata won't be forgotten, though, and I do still have those last few things for ToH to complete. I also hope I can practice more on variety this year, but we'll just see how that goes. I'll keep doing what I enjoy and take a step from there~
So into the new year with art we go!
Since I didn't have many individual pieces this year (or ones that I considered any good or my best) many of these are panels from my comics:JanuaryFebruaryMarch
I always loved this one panel. I dunno why, I think it's Nippy's pose.AprilMay June
Ach'M and his sexy shirt. Of course this was gonna be in here.July
I think this round, particularly this sequence, was a big challenge in placing darker moods in story telling.AugustSeptember
Actually my entire film as a whole, but the picture is specifically from a single animated sequence of Hoatzin
