Wow, okay, so its been October/Novemeber since I lasted updated. I've come on today and been flabbergasted by all the favourites that have sprung up! Thank you everyone. Now excuse me while I talk on and on and on about my life like a teenage girl... Later half of 2011 Blues.
First off the very bad: I let down a Friend whose an AMAZING
</b> writer, and who asked me to try drawing one of his comic scripts. Being the idiot that I was, I let that slide badly. Ultimately, yes that partnership went before it started. Which was a really stupid thing too do, the guy was a fantastic writer and I was an artist who had no faith in his work and completely let the writer down. Guys got amazing down to earth mini series ideas, he just can't break into the comic industry.
Meanwhile the window for university application has closed. I've now got to wait another year and half (ish). Was I ready to move on up? Maybe ... Bright Future
... BUT I now have a good time to make a f-ing fantastic university application and portfolio! To actually go round and see universities and open days and Internet research, etc, etc. Hallowed Turf
Yes, Hallowed Turf is STILL ALIVE and there's FINALLY a script for the next act (with staples and everything!) I'm finally confident that I'm portraying the story ideas well. So HUZZAH
The plan is to draw the 'middle' pages of the act and work my way backward and forwards, so I have a buffer when I post, but that will take weeks to sort out, so the comic is still 'on hold' for a bit longer. In the mean time I've got a couple of 'concept pieces' scanned in to help me get back into the digital rhythm, so they should be up in the next couple of weeks.
If I can win the fight with the shading ....'The Seven Evangelion Itch'
Had a bit of a creative itch for Neon Genesis Evangelion over Christmas. Maybe I really shouldn't have (Rei-) discovered the 'Re-Build' Movies (:3). This could be bad, especially with what happened last time I had a creative itch!
On the plus side, I've discovered another of Gainax's works: Gurren Lagann. Which is well ... EPIC! Bioshock.
"I went to New York Comic Con 2011 and got a free copy of 'Bioshock Infinite'. " [link]
No really, its just I have to wait for release date. Which still hasn't been announced...
But in the mean time, I've got a creative thing or two, Bioshock: Infinite related, in the pipe-line.
Furthermore I decided to pick up the original Bioshock and as an exercise in writing (I hate personal statements. Or any other type of applications or forms) I'm writing my thoughts and experiences as a 'Walk-though' on the Irrational Games forum for everyone to 'enjoy'. I'll throw up a link if anyone's interested. Sketch Challenge.
On the subject of 'getting back into the rhythm' and 'portfolio's' I'm trying a 'Daily-Warm-up-Character-Sketch-Challenge-Thing'. I've seen other artist do something similar, like
but I'm trying something with a slight twist.
More on that in the next week, but I think I'm going to need some help since I'M GOING TO NEED SUGGESTIONS!!!
[God help me]
And I've realised the Internet is my worst enemy (TOO MANY PRETTIES TO LOOK AT!!
) so If I'm slow to respond, I'm not ignoring you, I'm just trying to 'work' (PRETTIES!!
