Making a graphic novel / manga
#30
Quote:It has no improved techniques like leading the eye, not even good camera-placement, but I want to push the story a little bit, until I finally finish chapter 1 (which means page 20-30). I already lined up several pages in not-so-advanced-style.

These are just my thoughts, so feel free to dismiss them entirely. But if every page you are currently making are drafts that are going to be redone later (meaning there's no reason to be precious over them and how they currently look), isn't this the perfect opportunity to actively study and apply what you learn? You learn and progress your skills faster if you apply what you've just learnt directly to your own personal work. So isn't it a wasted opportunity to not heavily intertwine studies and learning into your project?

I'm not saying study everything under the sun all at once, but instead to pick an aspect of art to study. Why not study something like composition and then try and apply it to your next page? Study perspective then apply. Values, then apply. Etc etc.

Basically, what I am saying is that this is a great opportunity to study - apply - study - apply - study -apply so on and so on. Keep building up your skills as you go along, instead of just doing page after page with the same knowledge and mindset of just wanting to complete the goal.

Anyway, it's food for thought
