hey anyone reading!
progress on brobot is still goin': i'm officially halfway through the episode. i'm pretty happy about that, and my recent progress, while slow, has been good. it's just sometimes you get a shot that trips you up. i was on one of those for a good week there, i wound up honestly just having to skip it. i'll come back to it later and maybe re-develop it or take another shot then. for the life of me i don't know how this is still taking forever even though i made the rigs. unless i just suck or i'm not working hard enough or something. but if i'm not at work or with my girlfriend or sleeping, i'm animating (sometimes at the expense of sleep... doin lots of nightfly-in', recently). so i really am trying, but it's been kinda getting me down. as for ep 2's release, i want it out before the end of the year, i really do, and i think i can still make it.
i've had a sorta weird time artwise recently, as i started thinking about the future and how i need to improve, etc. my goal is to work in the TV animation industry as a storyboard artist, and i'm nearing my mid-twenties and would really like to hustle down and make this dream a reality finally. i'm going to do more life drawing and going to figure classes soon, and don't intend to stop until i find myself good enough. i also want to begin making funnier comics to post online... perhaps posting 2 comics a week or more will get me writing better. but i don't want to lose sight of my autobio comics either, and really am itching to make a new issue of something anything. that one, too, i want to be much funnier and i have some good ideas as to where to take the series. i recently restocked my first two issues at criminal records in atlanta and if you live near orlando, florida you can grab some at park ave, one of my fav record stores down there.
as i continued to think about my progress, it got me feeling a little down about brobot. i love brobot, but i just feel like these seven-minute long things aren't cutting it anymore. i'd love to put out more work more frequently as i did back in 2014 or so, with shorter, more manageable projects. that could include brobot shorts again, rather than episodes, because i don't want to stop doing brobot. but these projects are just so long, they take forever, and sometimes i wonder if it's stifling me as an artist. i mean, i'm still constantly learning, but idk... i'd like to have stuff out more often and be able to do different stuff.
sorry if this was a depressing entry! i'm actually very very excited for this next year in my life and in my artistic path. here's the requisite progress shot... this one is actually from quite a while ago. see you next month :)
