@nessillustration wow thank you so much! Such a good constructive critique! You’re so right about the focal point. I got too excited about drawing anfun kids room and didn’t think about my composition enough. Ugh! Now I feel like I want to re-do... but maybe I don’t have to. I should definitely change some things though. Thanks so much for getting this to my attention. And nice to meet you!
Got a question? Ask away! Got an idea for SVS? Let us know!
@eric-castleman I love your statement that complaining that you are a fraud is part of your process. Although you were joking, it helps me to know that someone as talented as you are still struggles with your own self doubts. One of the most helpful thing I heard on one of the SVS videos was one of the teachers (can’t remember who) talking about going through the ugly phase of a painting because all of this tells me that much of the process of bringing a painting to completion is learning when to listen to one’s own doubts and when to ignore them and push through.
THE FIST is about a guy who punches stuff real good. His wife is a spaceship. They’re on the run from the EVIL Space Army, but stop along the way to fight for money.
It’s a big, action-packed, weird, silly, four-color, fun, dumb, love-letter to all the comics, cartoons and video games that formed my brain as a kid.
It’s a book I've been working on and off between projects for four years. I "write", illustrate, color, and publish it all on my own. I say "write" because it's more of a freeform kind of thing. I use a loose outline, but make up a chunk of it as I go.

@feleri I felt like there was too much empty space on the wall and the fire place was too much of an interest. I was going to fill the wall with stuff but I just took a course a painting class with a big focus on eliminating details to keep more focus on the message so I have been making a effort to think that way.
