I’ve completed the first two pages of Woo episode 3, and they’re the first time I’ve relied on using perspective to any great degree (not sure about some of it, but it’ll all come out in the wash). There are things you have to accept and balance out when you’re drawing a comic. The important factors are:
1. A finished comic is better than an unfinished comic
2. The longer it takes to finish a page the less likely it is I can make a living drawing a page
3. It’s debatable how much people notice that drive me nuts on my artwork
So, to sum up, these pages took longer than I would’ve liked partly because I’ve been trying to learn new stuff as I go – there’s no way, even if I had enough work, that at this speed it would be worth while drawing comics so something has to give. Tomorrow I start page 3 and I’ll be looking to speed up.
