Have you ever been in a math class (yes I'm using math as an example, save your criticism for after) and had to deal with some tricky concept? And you've attacked it from all sides and tried to make sense of this huge knot in your brain, and it still is confusing? Then someone says something and POW! It all makes sense. Boom. How could you not see the answer before, the answer was right there. All the pieces and parts make sense and you feel like you've climbed an intellectual version of Everest.
That is what is happening right now reading these books.
Right now I'm reading the one on providing backgrounds and it's already helping. I know that I have a ways to go before I've learned all I can from these books but I'm so psyched to apply all my new learnings to my comic. I'm considering finishing up the pages that I have and fixing some perspective mistakes I have in some panels, coloring the whole schmeal, and then going back with some tracing paper to add some more line work.
Ugh. These books. These books are making this comic exciting for me to work on again. These books are saving my life.
Might have another post tonight with some watercolor tests I did early, until then, I'm working on pages.
