When will anyone ever be ready?

I’ve been practicing to draw my MC for some time now, and yet, I feel I’m not nearly ready to go for that graphical novel.
By the way, why not simply write “main character” instead of MC?
I’ve been noticing this on social media.

Here’s the next subsequent question:
“When will anyone ever be ready?”
The first few chapters have been written.
So, it’s just a question of stitching together the visuals an words! Yeah, it’s as simple as that!
No pressure!
On the other hand, If I laboriously create one panel a day it might work!

Now, before I sound like a wallowing baby, I will admit that I’m thoroughly enjoying this self-inflicted “draw your character each day” project.
It’s a lot of fun. Don’t shed too many tears for my struggle!

Anyway, enough about this, how is your Sunday going?

Have a great day,
Matt

The Turnaround-trauma!

For those who are new to this project: I’m drawing the same character each day.
And, it’s going better than anticipated! I’m already on day 22!
There are many reasons for doing it, but this video basically captures the gist of it.

Moving on to practical considerations.
Maybe you’ve noticed it too, in some comics, the characters’ faces are often portrayed in very same-ish views.
The classic three-quarter view is a favorite, and so is the full-frontal of course.
Well, I’ve decided not to go that route.
The Warrior Princess can, and will be rendered from all angles!
Some will be less flattering than others, but yeah… That is a cartoon’s occupational-hazard!

I’ve heard artists mention the turnaround-poses.
And that’s exactly what it means, you draw, or render your subject in such a way that it appears the character is doing a 360 degree rotation.
Ok, so I’ve been favoring the three-quarter face, but I’ve done a few profile views, as well as the odd full-frontal view.

That’s it for now!
See you soon,

Matt
