"What're You Lookin At?"


Original Comic, made a whole year prior:


It's been a whole year since I've not only made this comic, but also delved into more than pixel art. As fun as pixel art was, it wasn't very apt for expressing things to my beck and call. So, I added a new coat of paint. To be fair, this comic was never finished in the first place, so I basically just took a year long hiatus and finished it last second... and took a few art lessons on the side (despite the fact that I am just now only taking an art class). I've been through hell and back with my decisions with art programs, from seeing if I can scale up the image size in Piskel, switching between Autodesk, Krita (which the original was made in) and finally landing on MediBang. Nathan R. had a rocky transition to line art, but goddamn was it worth it. I'd say this is a testament to how I've grown through the past year alone. You can tell I at LEAST got my shit together. Also, the comic was originally going to have 6 panels, though since its been a couple of months and I have no remembrance of what they were going to be, I decided to just keep it at 4. And I thought it would be sad to just keep it at line art, so I added basic coloring as well, just for novelty.

Let this be a message to any and all aspiring artists out there:

Keep at it, even if your goals or premises seem dumb. You will get somewhere as long as you try.

I'm gonna try to take this message into 2021 as I try to get into bigger projects. Hell, I might even need it.

Good luck.
