November has been a month of me trying to catch up again with what I missed in October. It's been kind of tricky because for whatever reason I've had A LOT of "I'm tired / exhausted" days. Sometimes I'd get to a point where I want to do something, but don't want to do anything. Really fun. So, I'd miss a few days of streaming and therefore drawing, which means less content than I'd hope for in the end. Because of that thought of "less content than usual" I keep having recurring thoughts about trying a sort of daily drawing thing, but as I've discovered in the past, I just can't do it. I want to be able to though. Honestly, the reasons why I don't can be simplified as laziness or forgetfulness. I spend about 5-8 hours everyday on drawing related stuff, so when the time ends for the day, I'm just about done with drawing for the day, if that makes sense. I find it difficult to extend that time a little bit more to say, "hey, I'm spend 1-2 more hours on a daily drawing now."
At the start of the month, I accepted a few commissions that have been on "waiting" status for quite a while and have finished all but 1. At the moment, that, and the next page of the Eyes on the Prize comic page are my two main focuses. The Eyes on the Prize comic has been going... Ok. I decided to just do simple black and white coloring for now, because I simply don't know what colors I want with it. I don't understand color theory, or even color picking at all. The few times I've tried with coloring, I fear it looks ugly or I fear I can't keep the consistency of it onto the next page. Heh, I'm sure there will be a few people who say the black / white coloring is already ugly, but OH WELL. I'm learnding, pleese dont yall at me.
Currently with my weekly content stuff, it's Comic / Vote / Comic / Vote / etc. Like I said last month, I feel like I can't do both a comic, weekly vote, and commission work AND personal work in one week, so why bother trying. Instead I'll just break it up into every-other-week type format. The unforeseen, rather obvious consequence of this however, is that I'm doing 1 comic page every other week. Eyes on the Prize currently has 30 drafted out pages. That would take 60 weeks to complete, if I kept to this schedule. That's uh, kind of a long time, for a mediocre comic, heh. Honestly, I'm not too sure what to do about that. I think for now I'll stick to the schedule with no changes and see how I feel about the whole thing in January. I mentioned fears about consistency earlier, and the length of time it's going to take to finish this comic is one of the main factors for that particular fear. As you may know, I've made an attempt at making this comic before, and was definitely not happy with how it was going. I'm glad I decided to stop and reformat everything, but I do not want to do that again here. It's time consuming and it's not actually content I can show anyone.
Total flip of switch here: The comic will most likely change over time, and I should probably not worry about that sort of thing. I want it to stay consistent, but I simply don't have the skill for that at the moment. This is basically my first start-to-end comic, not including the old "Old As Ice" comic. There's going to be some bumps and seemingly random changes from time to time. (I'm typing this as a reminder for myself. Hopefully it sticks.) Things like word balloons, coloring, sound words, line art, etc., will most likely change from page to page. Thanks for your patience!
