This time I tried a combination of really thin lineart, soft shadows, and glossiness. Meh. Took to much time, and it just looks like my usuall style. Tommorow I will probably try something a lot simplier.
And a couple of words about why am I even bothering with figuring out a simplier style. There are two reasons.
The first one being, that I really want to start doing comics. That's why I got into drawing in the first place, because I wanted to draw comics! But with my current style it takes just too much time to draw one page. Remember that Batgirl comic I was doing a couple of months ago? It took so long to colour these damn 5 panels that I gave up halfway through. I would love to do these amazing, fully rendered and detailed comic pages but I don't have the time, nor the patience to do this. I guess I could just draw it in black and white for now, but I just can't put my heart into it if it's not colour. Meh.
The second reason is kinda weird. I don't like my style. At all. I am not trying to be humble here. It just bugs me. I really love artists that can draw with a simple, and efficent style, and yet I developed a very detailed and semi-realistic cumbersome monster. I don't even know how this happened, but I don't like it. I guess one of my goals for 2012 is to get my style where I want it to be.
If you are curious, my three fav artists are:
Matteo de Longis :http://www.kamenstudio.com/ (I love how he does faces), Adam hughes and Yukimi
Ugh, whatever, see you tommorow
