Thanks to everyone who commented on my last post. It was just the buck-up/support/kick-in-the-pants I needed!
I've decided to practice and play and not try to do finished pieces for a while.
And I'm going to post what I plonk on the page regardless of how it looks. Comments (positive or negative) are more than welcome.
Some of these are going to look like utter shite. Some will probably look OK. None will be finished. All will be messy.
Here's today's scribbles:
I quite like the eye-patch chick at the top. I don't mind the bottom left one (though she's pretty much my usual style) and I'm playing around with Ana Bagayan style lines a la the one at the bottom right. Audrey Kawasaki does the same type of thing with her heavy and light lines. I really like that. Will play around with them again later this week.
All in all, fairly crap effort, but truth be told, it was good to pick up a pencil and get back on the horse.
