Hey AC!! I've been lurking for a while and I decided it's time to share some of my work... get crits, new ideas, etc. But I do have an ulterior motive.... I'll explain: I'm currently employed full time (thank goodness). But between work, a girlfriend, my family obligations, my addiction to running and other day to day tasks, I find it difficult to find time to work on my own pieces. Mix that in with an unhealthy habit of taking on too many projects at the same time, and you have a recipe for disaster.
Now I've been known to be a procrastinator, so I made myself a promise. Every day, work on artwork for AT LEAST 2 hours. Treat it like a job I'm clocking in for... and try to stay committed to it. If I miss a day, it stacks on to the next until I even up the debt. I KNOW that people out there are able to dedicate many hours of their day to art, and I'm so envious of that... but, for now, this is as much as I can do. And even though I feel it's such a small amount, I'm hoping those hours add up to something meaningful. So... this thread will be a checks and balances of sorts. A way to hold myself accountable. I hope you enjoy some of the stuff I put in here!

The 1st Image is an image out of a comic I'm working on with a friend, titled "The Low Angel Project" for now. I don't want to give too much stuff away yet as it's still in the early form of production. Here's where I was at as of this evening before I started working:
And here's where I'm at 2 hours later. There's a lot of retooling still... but as I get more and more familiar with the characters, it will go much faster. I'm still back and forth between the softer and the harder version. The hard version looks a bit cartoony, but it's a lot faster to pull off. I also shortened up the legs to keep consistent with the character design. They're intended to be disproportional to the top half of the body, and it doesn't help that the first time we see this character, there's foreshortening, but oh wells.... I'll plug away till I figure it out
Back to work!Total I've worked on artwork since starting this thread: 2
