Lil six page comic over on my Instagram! @carmenwoodillustration. Go check it out! I had a lot of fun researching and playing with watercolor.
Heyo! Just dropping in here to keep my site active for SEO purposes lol. I’m excited to say I just published chapter FIVE of my webcomic! Can be viewed here: https://mermaiddayscomic.wordpress.com/
The total webcomic is 12 chapters, so we’re creeping up on halfway through! I’m so proud of myself. It’s one thing to think about doing a project, and another to really commit and DO THE PROJECT. I guess for me it just comes down to: how do I want to use my life? How do I want to use, and in what direction do I want to build, my skills? And deciding not to wait for permission – not to wait for a traditional book deal, not to wait until my art abilities can make ‘perfect’ art.
I’m learning so much, too. About lighting a scene, where my weaknesses are (indoor group scenes, I’m looking at you!), how I’ll be more clear with my thumbnailing on the next project, how I want to go deeper with conversations and characters next time around. Art is like yoga or karate or personal finance (all things I enjoy and play with in my daily life) – a lifelong practice, with almost endless opportunities for learning. Luckily I like learning haha.
Ok, Carmen, signing off (tips hat)
