I'm starting to get some better results with regards to my anatomy, and colouring. My linework still has a long way to go. I'm beginning to develop a cartoon style that I am happy with and starting to get the main character for the graphic novel (Tate) looking fairly consistent in a variety of poses. I think I'll put a bit more time into the supporting characters and alien species before I attempt to produce a full page. Oh yeah, my backgrounds, buildings and landscapes suck. All in all, I have to express my sincere respect for all comic book artists, pencillers, inkers, background artists, concept artists and letterers. If I am missing anyone I apologise for my ignorance.
