There was an old comic strip I was working on last year that I eventually gave up on due to discouragement. Here is an excerpt from the comic, the particular panel in which what pushed me to close the book on this comic.
As you can see: it sucks. There's no need to sugar coat here, it just sucks. Although I'm pretty OK with creating backgrounds traditionally, but digitally I can't create backgrounds worth shit. This was my absolute best attempt at the time to create a background and I just gave up in the end lol. I thought it was horribly sad that this was the best thing I could do.
Anyways, I had decided to pick it up again for the hell of it, thinking the skills I had picked up might be able to help. Just simply after 30 minutes of working on the grass alone I was surprised on what I had done.
Holy Jesus. I mean sure it's just grass and any artist can probably do way better than this tiny bit of progress, but this is quite a personal accomplishment for me.
I plan to redo the entire background and start over from scratch. I'm actually excited to see how it will turn out if just a little touch up on the grass improved that much. I really hope to release this comic soon, I think a lot of people will find it funny. C:
