First time poster. Kinda nervous, but here goes. I'm a graphic designer, but I love cartooning and illustrations. I make logos and business cards and letterhead and whatever else to pay the bills, but my first love is character art. I read a few web comics, and I browse a lot of art every day and watch a lot of the "Watch Me Draw!" vids out there so I tend to get a bit intimidated. When I make a line that's not perfect, or I can't figure out how to sketch a freakin' hand (notice my character's hands are hidden in her pockets ^^), I get a little discouraged. Needless to say, I have quite a few WIPs... This strip, though, I started around 10 last night, and I was going to leave it til morning after I finished the line art, but I made myself sit down and finish it. I went to bed late, but I felt like I pushed through a wall. This is my first serious attempt at a comic strip.
Anyway. No need to be gentle. I want to improve (I would love to do this full time eventually, i.e., I hate you, business logos.), and I would love feedback.
