Inspiring me to do some more RTP (which hasn't updated in far too long) and I would but the Wife will be home soon so I shouldn't get started at anything.
Really??? Wow, I thought the only thing my crap could inspire is to be held up as a horrible example. But thanks just the same!
Also inspiring me to have a look at the WAY thread again.
Now that this ep is finally done, I can go on to other things - like the WAY thread.

Feh... That monstrosity just a temporary placeholder until I get this new banner done. Should be MUCH better complete (I hope).
Good luck with your quest for improvement, friend
I'm on a similar kick right now as well. I'm looking to buy a few educational art books because I'm finding that a lot of criticisms I think about other comics apply to my own as well, and it's time to stop floatin' and start swimmin', if you will. I also want to do some more work fixing up the coding and design of my site, but it's functional for now so I'll worry about that later.
I have ~17 pages left in this chapter and I'm really hungry to finish them before August 8, at which point it will mark a year since i started this damn chapter
I doubt I'll be able to do it in time, but I've been looking at some wretched deviantart pictures and feel encouraged and inspired.[/quote]
Well, there you go! Good luck to you as well!

Of course that goes as long as you've established a criteria of adequacy, after which you stop tampering with your work and let it live it's own life. It's crucial that you're able to draw a line above your work and say "For better or worse, this is finished." Going back to your old work and fixing it up over and over again, or touching up pages for months or longer before publishing them are ways to stunt your creative growth.
In my case, I would have thought that my most recent stuff was my best stuff until I started getting peer-to-peer reviews on it. Then I came to painfully realize just how very, very far I have to go to consider my work even adequate. Don't see the light yet but hopefully working towards it.
