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 monochrome maiden vs. some colour!

It’s been a few days since I started “re-learning,” or even “re-inventing” my own cartooning style.
Yesterday someone asked, “what was wrong with it? The old style?”
That’s just it.
I didn’t feel anything was wrong, but not all was right.
An interview with Neil Peart, the late world-renowned drummer from the band Rush inspired me as well, a few weeks ago.
Why would one of the world’s best drummers decide to take lessons again at a mature stage in his career?
I’ll leave you to go and research that answer for yourselves.

So why would a cartoonist, who has been drawing his whole life “start from scratch?”
Maybe there’s this easy answer: “Why not?”
But nonetheless, only through continuous growth will some be able to recapture the elusive concept of “joy.”
I guess I’m one of those.

Right. That there was the philosophical component of the post.
What do you think of the colours?
Do you maybe prefer the B&W version?

Have a great weekend!
Until next time!

It’s taking some shape!

This pose didn’t quite look right!
