Yesterday I drew and inked the last page of Guerra + Santa. I'm honestly pleased with the way it came out, although I must admit, as I drew the final page I had a bit of a sad feeling. Accomplishing a goal is a bittersweet experience.
I'm thinking about the future. I know my next comic will be much better and I'm already thinking about what story I should write next. I have some stories in mind, but for now, I'm not sure which one I'll go with. I'm thinking about taking some time, sketching things out and improving my drawing skills before starting a new work. When I look at these pages I've drawn, I'm proud of my hard work, but I also understand I need to learn more and more. I want to be a professional, not because I have a degree but because I excel at what I do.
I'd write a short summary of the stories I have in mind in this journal, but I think it'll be far more exciting to post some sketches instead.
What would you guys advise me to do to improve my drawing skills? I'm thinking of practising more figure drawing, does anyone have other tips for improving?
On a different note, my mother told me that my father's office is in need of an assistant, so I told him I could work with him again. I think this is funny because I worked there 6 years ago, and before I heard this, I was just reminiscing about those days. That office is not the most wonderful place on earth, but the good thing is it'll be a part-time job (so I can keep on working on my thesis) and hopefully this job won't be too stressing. Plus, I get to hang out with my dad. Lucky me!
Anyway, that's all for today. Hope you guys have an awesome week!
