Let's Get Motivated!

Recently I've come to the realization that I am in no way nearly as productive as I could be. I don't want to say I've been in a rut, because I have been creating art... It's just that I don't feel like I'm getting anywhere. I've been at a standstill with one project in particular, my graphic novel "Ravenstar". It's weird, because I'm really excited about this, but I feel like I've been dragging my feet with it.

Over the last week I've talked with some people about this problem (face to face and via the internet) and one of the conclusions I've come to to keep me going is to start posting everything somewhere where I can be held accountable to keep showing more work and also to receive feedback. Therefore, I'm going to start using this blog in that fashion.

What'dya say guys? Will you keep me motivated and on task?

This is an illustration I literally JUST finished. Hot off the presses! I'm using it as a cover image for the first chapter of "Ravenstar" (text to be added later) I cannot tell you how long it took me to get from start to finish with this piece. I never ever want another work to take as long as this one did. It's time to start MOVING and getting stuff done. The wheels of progress are in motion!

Chapter One is pretty much complete, for the most part. I do have to go back and re-do the first four pages, because I altered the story after I had already finished those pages, and now they don't really make any sense with the story line. So that is my project for the week! I will check in next week and let you all know how it's going. Hopefully everything will be done by then and I'll have some awesome stuff to show you all!

Until then, please continue to kick my ass into staying on top of things!
