@aska lol they really are the best! And that's so cool that you used to be a finance analyst! I'm no good with numbers and math myself... I always appreciate those who are. And there's definitely a lot of new things to learn here. So glad to just jump right in! :D

RE: I'm taking a big leap tomorrow and I'm scared as heck
I just joined SVS yesterday, but was wondering how is it going and how do you feel? I'm a graphic designer as well and was super curious and also checking in. Do you have anything you're working on now?
My name's Jessica Brannan and am just getting started with a few SVS courses. Poking around through the forums and the classes and super excited to get started and meet all of you. :D I just started yesterday, so I'm sorry my profile's not quite up to snuff.
I specialize in illustration and graphic design, but don't know what direction I want to head in yet with that. I'm looking at making my own comics right now, but also have been obsessed with what goes into making an animated film since I saw my first animated movie. Been doing a bit of soul searching and figured I'd just take a season to up my skills while I'm trying to figure it all out. Maybe something will jump out at me.
And of course, I have to mention my little trouble maker (ie. cat). His name is Scout and he's going to be 2 in March! If there's one thing that I like to talk more about than art, it would be about him. xD
Well, I think that's plenty about me, what's a fun fact about you guys? Do you know what artistic direction you want to head in? Do you have any little trouble makers in your life?

I'm just getting started with SVS and am super glad to be here and happy with the classes thus far, but don't know enough to chime in any further. I'll come back and let you know if I think of anything though! :)
RE: Halloween WIP
Until I read your description, I didn't really know what was going on in this picture. I think it might be better to approach this from a different angle, and showing the mice inside and scaring the cat. Especially if this isn't going to be a comic or a storyboard and just a single illustration, you might want to skip to the punchline so that we know exactly what's going on. I love the idea, and it's such a cute idea! Can't wait to see how this progresses. :D
