Long time I haven’t written a journal T_T
Many things happened since I tried to start a Pokemon based comic. The comic took me a lot of time and I couldn’t insert it in my daily routine with the result that it quickly lost quality and went on hiatus.
I never really wanted to give up on the comic, since it’s a project I would like to finish and I would like to learn a lot from it.
During the hiatus I’ve been refining the characters, my style, the story. I have also been planning the best way to restart the comic without repeating the same old mistake. In the last months I’ve been trying to slowly insert art time in my daily routine, without it being a huge burden. I decided I’m going to restart slowly, but with quality or at least fifty-fifty.
One of my issues were choosing between traditional or digital art. To me they are very different and I get different results. I like traditional better, but learning digital is one of my objectives.
I’ve come up with some resolutions
1) I’ll start with posting sketches and the like I’ve been doing in the last couple of months. It will help me get more confident, I hope
2) After the sketches, I’ll start a mini project. It is also Pokemon based, but not related to any game in specific. The idea now is that it will feature a bird trainer who travels the world in search of one of the legendary birds. So, birbs everywhere
Pages will most probably released in both traditional and digital styles.
3) If I finish the mini project or if I gain enough confidence, I’ll be ready to restart the P.O.E. comic! It will have consistent pages layout, fonts, style, and most importantly it will reach the end.
In the case I won’t get enough confidence or if life will eat all my time, I might choose to do more mini projects, but P.O.E. universe related, which could introduce to the main comic.
Whoa, I think that’s already too much a big plan!
But since I would like to get to a serious point, it needs to be.
I’ll start point one soon!
