Falling

Oddly enough, the following pages were very therapeutic from an artistic standpoint. Drawing a character with no real constraints as far as gravity really allowed me to loosen up some. Even the jump from this page to the next page is different as I really saw the opportunity to explore what I could do with this freedom.

    Curious. Never really been much for artistry, but from what I have done, I suppose I can see how drawing characters from my imagination in a lifelike manner would be a little stressful, especially if you’re a perfectionist.

    I think the appeal and therapeutic aspects of this stem from the fact I came out of that last storyline feeling very stressed. It was a long “chapter” and it was something I did for a class. Of course it was for myself as well, and I didn’t have a problem meeting my deadlines, some of it became forced. Even the characters just became hard to write for. But this was months ago. I’m over that now. It just felt good to say “Okay, for a moment, I’m going to throw everything out the window and get back to basics.” In the long run, I think it helped me from both an artistic and writing standpoint.

    I’m very confused. What’s going on? I don’t really understand your comment either. ^^; I hope it’ll be clearer from the next page?

    I’m sorry for the confusion! The next nine pages are meant to be a dream sequence of sorts. It probably would be less confusing if it were in the format I originally intended for it: A single very long image. But I felt like it would have been too gigantic to post all at once. I don’t want to make any computers cry out in agony.

    As for my comment, I was just saying that doing something different really helped to refresh my perspective in the long run.

    Haha, okay. I guess that’s the problem with webcomics. Sometimes it’s hard to pick ideas up in just one page. I’m sure I’d have figured it out eventually. XD
