Revisiting...


If you are like I am, you never look at your own work with too kind of an eye. i used to kind of like the original piece (on the bottom), but now every time I see it , I realize just how bad of a drawing it is. I was just learning Photoshop, but that's no excuse for the bad drawing. I decided to revisit it recently after 10 odd years to see what I could learn from it. It's by no means a big success, but I like it better. The chunky chick is a bit more dimensional and her skull doesn't look so wacky.

The new one is definitely more dimensional. But I still like the bottom images face and hair more.

I do know exactly what you mean. Sometimes I look at some of the old stuff and ask myself "did I do that?"

It does show you've gained from experience but there's a lot ofcharm to that old drawing, I still like it.

I'm sure we've all been in that situation where we look back at our old projects and go "ugh" although the rest of the world may not even notice.

In my point of view, it definitely shows a lot of improvement on your end. This last one is definitely the style I'm familiar with. It rocks.

So is the book going to be ready before or after the Comic Con? Fanboy #1 wants to know.

Thanks for the comments guys!

Jorge,

I can't imagine the book will be ready by Comic Con, since I literally just finished it. Heck, I think I'm just going down for Preview night since I couldn't get a room. I'll post news as soon as I know.

best,
Tracy
