The current mood of Zaxon at

FEBURARY 11th, 2023.

Something I will continuously realize and always forget is the fact my art looks better with thicker, looser lines. My lineart, my sketches... they always look best when the lines are thick, fast, and imperfect.

Here is an example of a quick "doodle page" I did before going to bed last night:

The lines make my art look like a professional comicmaker's work. This is ultimately my goal! I want to be known as "the guy who makes comics", or at least the guy that tries. To me, it is very important to have a style that properly conveys the work you seek out to do. Animators draw simply and quickly, illustrators focus on details -- comic artists are in between, holding these two mediums together as tight as they can.

I plan on making a "gallery" page soon. I just have to figure out how I want to do it. Through this journal entry I was experimenting with using the :hover action in CSS to make images appear larger: but it tends to be glitchy if I want it to exceed the DIV box with position:absolute. I'm sure there are better ways to do it, but for now this works fine for me.

Some other WIPs for today:

Anik Pillai and Grudge Shafir sketch icons

Anik Pillai (the tiniest) and his older sister & parents.

I'm excited to work and draw again now that I have beautiful friends helping me. Accountablity and trust is important, and you should always ask for help: There are ALWAYS people who understand and are willing to help you, if you extend a hand to them as well.
