Finished the of my last finals yesterday, and boy does it feel good to be free from school!

No heart pounding mad-dashes to finish the math homework I procrastinated on for 3 weeks (which actually happened. I failed the following test and did none of the assignments). No more writing half-assed history assignments or or making half-assed grades. Because I know something I can put my whole ass into and that it is DRAWING (and writing)!
It's not like I didn't learn anything from these classes, it's just that the felt like a huge time-suck. I'd put in minimum effort (which for me is B's and sometimes C's) just so I could go back to drawing or learning about drawing, or writing.
I would just draw in class anyway, like I did throughout middle and high school. 

Now that I'm out, there's going to be a lot more drawings coming in as I'll have time to focus on writing the best comic I can, and drawing more than ever. For now I'll draw some mini-comics to get my drawing and storytelling chops up. As I work on the one I currently have on my table, I realize there is so much to learn about storytelling and it was a good idea to start on these mini-comics beforehand.
They'll probably be pretty disturbing, but a higher quality, better-looking kind of disturbing than either Dinner Time one or two [provide links]. I've been steeped so much into learning that I really need to start doing (I hope that sentence made sense). The more I research about the various aspects of art, the less I realize I actually know. And I end up doing even less. I bet great artists like Eiichiro Oda of Horikoshi Kohei (of Boku no Hero Academia fame) both just drew and drew, tweaking out mistakes along the way and learning new techniques as they went. And they've both in the business a pretty long while. They just worked their asses off to get where they are today.  They didn't sweat the details (at least I assume) and they turned out great. So I've got a good chunk of time ahead of me, and as long as I work my whole ass off I should be fine :)

 P.S. You haven't felt a punch 'til you've read Hajime no Ippo. That's how good the artwork has gotten of over 30 YEARS of work!

So we have the same visual taste. I like when I find other people from which I can have a  short list of art from the other artists.
Thank you for that!

Keep on drawing. with such great inspiration ideal, you will reach a similar level.

Hey, thanks! I also love looking in other's people's favorites to see how they develop their style. I still have much more to show in my own drawings, but I'll be sure to keep it up :D
