Getting ready to start on the next ep (Part 10) of Critters. Part 9 is here in case anyone's interested: http://www.crittersonline.org/
. After having my ass handed to me by LC and Scooby, coupled with positive feedback and conversation gotten from a couple of people on FurAffinity.net, I've been on this continuous improvement kick like never before. Part 9 is a first for me as I used next to no Liquid Paper in its inking - the Scooby influence. Previously, I used it liberally to get nice, tight, clean lines. Now if I get a stray line I'm going to keep working and working at it until it's smoothed out, resulting in varying line thicknesses. Scoob, as per your WAY review (that I still intend on responding to) am I at least pointed in the right direction with that one?
You guys have also finally broken me of my judging my creative self-worth based on the number of people I have following me. Being pounded into the ground and being forced to completely rebuild tends to change your perspective, I guess. On FA you get to see how many people are watching you right at a glance, and before I'd pay attention to the number as well as the rate at which you pick up fans, always despairing at the low numbers. Now, I just scroll right by it, scarcely paying attention. It's just noise to me now. My attitude is piss on popularity; all I'm intersted in is building a better comic. To that end I can easily see myself as perpetually not doing well enough: "I don't care if this particular comic has earned me a dozen fans and more positive comments than I can sort through - IT'S STILL NOT GOOD ENOUGH!!!" At the very least, I guess, once LC and Scooby give me good grades, THEN I'll finally be satisfied with the work I'm doing.
There was something else, but I can't think of it ATM and I gotta go back to work. *sigh*
