That's my problem. I have a lot that I need to work on, especially along the comicking lines, but the worst problem I have is not doing anything. I've been pretty busy lately, but not now so I don't have any reasons to slack off anymore, so my plan for improvement is actually sitting down and trying to work on stuff. Even if its just half and hour a day working on the script, trying to improve it, its a lot better than doing nothing.
Less vague list:confidence/speed:
I'm going to try and do more speed drawings and gesture drawings to help me try drawing faster and not spending so much time worrying over details. Also not "doodling" so much, and instead actually finish stuff.coloring and shading:
I hate coloring. So much so that I will usually do my stuff in black and white instead of coloring. I'm going to really try and work on trying to understand color theory and color matching so that my colored pictures don't always look like mud when I finish them. I've been bookmarking links whenever I come across them.backgrounds:
I don't do them enough, and when I do they are always dull and lack detail. My aim is to try and study more perspective and ideas to get away from that.Writing
I haven't written anything in a long time, except for the random scribbles that I have to keep my ideas, so I'm going to try and sit down and write at least a page of comic script a day. And then get up the courage to re-read them and fix the grammar problems.
There's so much more that I need help with on improving, but for now i think that I'm going to keep the list short and not stress so much. Afterall, I think most of the things I have problems with could be improved with just doing anything
that's not margin doodles.
