Keep fueling the fire brother! It only leads to wanting to create more and more! Its an amazing feeling once you embrace it.
I worked for a collection agency. Yeah...i was THAT guy haha. Anyway, i would always doodle while the phone was ringing and eventually i met a friend
through the job that absolutely loved conspiracies as much as i, and he recommended a pale white horse to me by william cooper. If you havnt heard of
him or read the book, i recomend you do a little digging
So my doodling eventually led to wanting to create a visual representation of the conspiracies we all read about here at ATS. When this idea came to
me, i would create an entire page a day at work. Full, detailed panels, the whole shot. But i didnt plan it...i just sort of created each page as i
went along and at the end of my shift, i would get all giddy to show my buddy and the others around my cubicle. It was created all very simplistic
with the intention of just occupying my "free" time at work. As i progressed, i got more and more ideas but i didnt impliment them. I didnt plan.
Within 2 weeks i had finished 13 pages and a cubicle filled with drawings.
Eventually i quit because like every other job in this world, the bosses make the rules, and they fired my buddy. I went to the vp and told him how i
felt about the company and the way it was run and left...
I never touched that comic again until i got another collections job, where i began doodling again. The only time i EVER did any kind of drawing was
at work...sad to say...but after putting it on the back burner for so long, i decided to upload it to my computer and color it. This process begin a
few weeks before christmas of this past year. I ended up only completing 1 page by christmas time because i had become so anal in wanting to perfect
it and felt the need to change this and that, which led to a lot of frustration.
I gave out my comic to my gfs father (just a cleaned up version of my original drawings) and he absolutely loved it. I showed him the colored page and
he was awe struck...i have been working on it since then but am proud to say i am only a night away from completion!! The entire process took so long,
and i found many errors in my process along the way BUT, by the end of it, i know now i can achieve the same results that had taken me 6 months plus
to achieve, in a matter of a few weeks.
It fueled my fire. My perfectionism allowed me to engage the entire process by doing it the hard way. I worked harder and harder, became frustrated
every night....but the end result has driven me to find amazing potential within myself that i knew existed, but could never truely apply. Taking the
hard way allowed me to learn the errors of my ways, and im so happy because of that!!
I apologize for the long post, but as an artist yourself im sure you know how excited one gets when sharing his work and process with another.
Look forward to, "Cover Up". Written, illustrated, and colored by DarkfallenX. To be released...ohhhh, just because it seems to be the perfect day
for a release, April 1st. Haha.
