Apparently, I’m going to try and post everyday this week. Didn’t happen on purpose, but I guess there is just a lot on my mind. Here’s a sketch of the character I keep drawing.
My nerves are a bit shot – I’ve been contacted about an old proposal to a publisher. I did five pages of samples for the old package. This was a year ago. Now, I have to do three new pages by next week. This sort of thing always scares me because I want to be good enough, you know? I don’t want to let them down, either the publisher or my writer. So I tend to want to work out of my style, to try to give them what they want. Although we all know where that leads, so it is a constant guessing game with my instincts. Is that a composition I would normally do? Would I actually draw that building that way? Would this character slouch like that? Is there enough detail to this background? What if I actually have to draw all of this – can I do it in their timeframe?
Am I good enough?
