Production continues on the Favor of Ares project. I started revising and editing the second draft. I’m still designing the characters. Today I worked on using the models for the characters and finding manga/anime characters whose hairstyle is similar to the female models. I sent the picture out to several friends and they like them. I continue to improve and I’m now using the egg method for creating the head, instead of the circle and adding the chin.
My manga style has come along way. A month ago in Barnes and Noble an Asian woman asked if I was a professional. Now, granted, my art isn’t that good yet, but the fact that my artistic friends can tell it’s manga, is a good sign.
I have to make sure I practice everyday. It’s hard with all that is going on, but I have to keep going.
