"So" I thought to myself, "I’m having a hard time drawing and should try to do up some like, storyboards/concepts of the next scene to get the blood flowing. And hey, let’s do big group scenes with full backgrounds! That’ll help. And maybe if I draw them on a 16 by 9 inch 300dpi canvas I can REALLY whip these up."
Turns out I was completely wrong, and this picture has been completely killing me the last two weeks. Now I only have three weekends to get the next pages of the comic done and no art to show for myself.
I’m not a great artist, and struggle every step of the way - art for me is very much the ‘art is pain’ cliche. Art is nothing but pain for me - it’s hours of my life spent on things I end up hating in the end. A realization that perfectly encapsulates my relationship with art and might drive me insane if I think about it too much.
I don’t know if I’ll keep drawing comics after this story is done, but for now I can’t stand the idea of anyone else drawing it, so I guess you’re stuck with me.
