Hehe so I was challenged to do a Mini comic by my art buddy Jerzy Drozd of Art and Story (an excellent free/premium podcast and web site)A&S is for the beginner and professional cartoonist alike. They have a 15 day "free to try" option an excellent option for those who don't want to commit to a subscription. And started recently is Supreme Boxed Sets! Art and Story Supreme Boxed Sets series will collect entire monthly runs of the premium content and Email to you for one low price!
You can also find their "free podcasts" on Itunes! Check it out!!!
And now, back to the show!
In my last office hour Jerzy game me a challenge/deadline of August 9th for my mini comic which is quickly approaching. The good news is I had things on the burner when Jerzy and I discussed my ongoing projects in our office hour (yes with your premium subscription you also get a hour of monthly office time to discuss your projects) for that alone the subscription is well worth it!!! (OK. OK! I'm REALLY done plugging)...
So as I was saying I have 16 days left and for me that isn't allot of time. Especially when things come up in my life like managing my men's hockey team and learning animation software! Yes. I have always had a love of animation and with the advent of all the animation software out there, I have been "slowly" going through the tutorials for these different programs... But, what about your mini comic JD? Yes. I am thinking that too! Especially since my office hour discussion was also about sticking to one tool for example (1-pencil and micron 2-pencil and brush 3- pencil and computer software) and one tool only to finish the mini comic (err I did forget to mention that?)
Distractions, we all have em. We all have excuses too (some people call em rationales). We couldn't function without excuses err I mean rationales ;)
So today I put down the keyboard and I pick up the pencil! This is my pledge to you my followers and to my fellow Storriors and to Jerzy!
Forget "I think I can, I think I can" from today on "I know I can, I know I can" and "I WILL"!!!
Here is an animation (The Flashlight!) I did in Flip Boom Classic with their trial software. Animation-ish is very similar and you can try it free!
