can't sleep so i guess i'll blog for a bit. i was going through some of my old art work, like you do from time to time. and while a lot of it was wince worthy some of it was pretty good. especially the work i did for a group i was in called Deadline Society.
a bit of back story, back before social networking was all the rage on the 'puter i was in a group of about 6 -7 artists. we called ourselves the Deadline Society. we met every 2 weeks (month?) with the purpose of getting used to drawing more frequently and make monthly "deadlines". it's kind of passé but back in those days adhering to a monthly dead line was a big deal, or at least seemed like it. so i created an 8 or so page submission for every meeting. so, like i said i was digging around in some older work and i found all my "DS" submissions and, though i say so myself, they were really good. good enough in fact that wanted to post some of them on my blog! there is, however, a thing or two stopping me from doing that.
the first and most important thing being that the story i was telling in those submissions is unfinished. so i would have to finish the story to feel comfortable posting them. this wouldn't be a big deal but all those pages were done when i was big into anime; and the fact of the matter is i just don't draw like that anymore and don't really want to. so there's that. the second thing is that the finished pages are all line work. don't get me wrong it's all inked, i just don't know how i feel about putting up a comic page that's not colored or toned or anything. i mean of course i could color/tone them but i don't really want to.
so at the end of the day i have this unfinished thing that i want to show people. but i'm not really invested in working on it to the point were its "truly" presentable in my eyes... i don't know maybe i will and maybe i won't, if i can finally get some sleep i'll see how i feel in the morning.
