"BIG-JONNY," your getn there. Your slowly being creative, which will lead to being completely original in your case. U went from drawing characters exactly how u saw them, to drawing characters in "your own" poses. Also, that "Rat Warrior," i'm not sure if it was ur idea first bc years ago, a movie came out (i forgot the name) with rat looking people. The characters were about 5 or 3 rats, i think, im still not sure if they were actually rats, but it also had a young lady in it. The movie was an action movie. They would have small wars against something. The movie, at times would switch to the next scene in a comic book kind of way. It would zoom out as if u were looking at it in a magazine, then move to the next picture strip. But after all, you are still getn to be creative.
