Not literally, of course! But between some seriously annoying technology problems (99.9% due to my computer ignorance) causing me to fall behind, and me frying endless brain cells as I try to finish typing up six 22 page comic scripts for my pretend mini-series... I have not done well with "Intro to Comic Book Art." But that is no judgement on the class or the instructor. It's alllll me and my wretched luck lol!
I think what I need to do is back off of art for now and focus on this 6 issue mini-series comic script. This is a continuation of what I have been learning in the "comic book writing" classes at Comics Experience. Since I am a hands-on learner I am writing this as if I had the goal of submitting it to a publisher and for the express purpose of learning by doing.
Soon this beast will be typed up and ready for serious revisions. I am utilizing Comics Experience's brilliant service of hiring one of their various professional comic book creators for a "one-on-one" critique session. They sell these in 3-hour packages for what I believe is a really good price.
There are no free lunches in life! If I am ever going to make it as an artist and a writer then I need to invest blood, sweat, tears, and also money towards learning the actual technique
Phhhhpppt I'm so tired I can hardly type. We have a new puppy and she is sound asleep on her cushion - and obviously dreaming of chasing chickens and barncats from the looks of her legs going 100mph lol!
I will share my mini-series script after a few more revisions. And I have not given up on art, I am just going to have to focus on this first, get it finished, actually see it through to the end!
