What's Old Is Now New Again


I was in a little of an art funk and I needed a little bit of inspiration. So I was browsing through my old sketch books and came across a drawing that I did at the beginning of 2006. My artwork has changed since then, but I found a great picture to color and try new things with. I posted this a while ago, and I also posted it a while ago when I was an 'active' member of a comic sketch forum called Pencil Jack. There, it was critiqued that the way that I rendered it, it made him look 'bulbous', but that was the graphic style I liked and was going for (even though in retrospect, I kinda agree)...not being bulbous though. I thought it would look different colored...so I went for it.

In retrospect, my inking then definitely wasn't the greatest...my lines were all wobbly and all over the place...but I tried my best to clean it up a little. It was fun doing this, and while I was doing it...I found out some cool and interesting things...which I'm currently working on...which will be posted soon.

I'm a work in progress too Charles!

It's all about progress, not perfection, and then one day,

BAM!

The perfection that you didn't ever think would come flows naturaly

I'm glad to know that others know and are going through what I'm going through. I think we're all works in progress.
