So, I've been drawing since I could write, but didn't really get serious til' freshman year of college. (Summer break, start sophomore year soon). I first went in thinking of doing realistic drawings, and I did for awhile. Soon, I got interested in doing graphic novels. I don't know what it is, but it's a hard transition for me. With working in pencil, it just felt easier. With pen, it just looks like my art is now stupid doodles. Below is my recent work. I outline it all first in pencil, then ink with a regular black pen. What should I try to focus on improving, what tools should I use, and should stick with this or go back to what I used to do (http://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/8bit -joe/luigi)? Thoughts, advice, and opinions are appreciated. Thanks.
