After years of waffling due to fear, I am finally doubling down and posting a thread. Basically, my objectives currently are to improve my anatomy and perspective skills, as I am looking to create comics. I would eventually like to become good enough to be able to sell them at art conventions and through comic stores. I'm mostly trying to stick to the independent circles, as mainstream comics are not really my thing. I've been drawing off an on since middle school and minored in studio art at college, but did not really apply myself as well as I should have. None the less, I have always harbored the desire to make publishable comics. Here is where I am at currently, skill wise (I'll put some of these behind a spoiler just so the OP is not too cluttered):
And here is a silly doodle, but I'm sure it could use help, perspective wise:
I am trying to get into the habit of drawing daily and drawing from real life, so I am taking my sketchbook with me where ever I go. I have an assortment of books to help aid me, I just really need to sit down and read them. I'll definitely list these later. I'm planning right now to post something in this thread every Saturday. As for art influences I have:
Gigi Digi (she does Cucumber Quest, but I'm more in love with her Metal Gear Solid parody comics)
All varied, but I admire all of their line work and their comics composition. Please do draw all over my drawings, and let me know what you think/link to anything that you think would help me. I am currently using Pose Maniacs and Quick Poses for gesture drawing when I am focusing on anatomy.
And now I am ready to let the journey begin!
