With my decision to forgo college, I am now taking responsibility into honing my bad habits and transmuting them into healthier ones. Some of which may include an overactive sex drive to just idling on YouTube and Facebook.
Anyways, I did get a lot done over the last couple weeks as you can see here.
I finally finished the Goblins Vs Gnomes Drawing, and I got my commission piece completed of Shikamaru and Temari from Naruto. I'll be aiming to do more commissions on top of producing pages for my manga as well as some other personal art projects. Though I do need to fit in some more writing (just need to find out what though...maybe I should start with a novel.)
Here's the commission piece I did.
And here's one with dialogue.
And now for my contest entry! Wish me luck!
While I do like to think I did a good job with the Hearthstone Drawing contest piece, after looking at other talents competing for the prize, I do know I have a lot to learn for realism. While realism isn't necessarily the style I need when it comes to my comics, it still is a much needed practice for artists to learn.
Speaking of learning, I also decided to order "Excelsior!: The Amazing Life of Stan Lee" from Amazon to learn about the journey of one artist who revolutionized media. I wish I could find some biographies of manga artists like Tite Kubo or Eiichiro Oda. (Though while writing this I decided to open a google tab to look up some interesting things about Oda-sensei turns out he works 21 hours a day! Don't think I'm anywhere near disciplined enough to pull that off yet! orojackson.com/threads/10-thin…
Also want to give an honorable mention to The Legend of Korra for being a fricken amazing series! I thought The Last Airbender was amazing, but this expansion on the Avatar Universe hits much closer to home. It's unfair to compare the two incredible shows, but I'm just amazed for not watching it all sooner! Just watching through those series makes me grasp what type of story I'm aiming to exceed when it comes to my own works. And I can't wait to make such powerful stories and share them among the world!
I got some stress-inducing days ahead of me, but mostly from my parents negging me about quitting college. After reading that link above I am considering looking for an assistant internship for a comic/manga artist. Am unsure of my intermediate steps, but as opportunities open up to me I'll be sure to take them when I see them. For now, I gotta start hustling on my manga, "Black Medicine!" The distractions are hard to get over that much is true, but I firmly believe I am fully capable enough of turning this dream into a living.
