I don't really have that much to blog about. I'm going to be here for at least an hour and a half (to the conclusion of the Five at Five), but might stay longer. Yet I need to stay busy the entire time. I could occupy that time with a REALLY long blog post, but that requires inspiration I have precious little of.
Instead, that largely leaves as my option, Red Hood Rider stuff. I know, I know. My blog is so saturated with it that people might conclude that webcomic is the primary purpose of this blog with everything else secondary. (Heck, given that there's a Red Hood Rider tab at the top now--albeit one currently empty--they wouldn't be too far off.)
I mean, it's not SUPPOSED to be, but I DO have Red Hood Rider stuff I can talk about, lack any other ideas, leaving me with the option of either talking about something I'm passionate about, or making a short not-blog blog-post which boils down to a lengthy, wordy, "Sorry, got nothing to say". (Sort of like what this blog post would be if I decided to NOT do the Red Hood Rider stuff.)
Right now, I'm thinking that I'll probably start the second page some time today. I should also see if I can get at least one more page scripted, since progress there continues to be slow. If I don't feel like tackling the first page (even though the image I have in mind is awesome, it's going to be incredibly hard for someone of my limited artistic ability to pull off unless I find THE reference image I need--the image I have in mind is actually fairly common to see in BOTH manga AND Superhero comics, it's just that I have no clue what search words to use to find it), then I might tackle the notes, though that remains a herculean task as well.
You know the saying. Damned if you do, damned if you don't. It's going to be hard, tedious work no matter what I choose to do.
In the mean time, though, I think I mentioned yesterday that I'm calling the first page finished in spite of its flaws. (Well, if not, I'm telling you now!) So I figured, might as well show it off.
Butyeah, while I screwed up epically with regards to connecting bottom-half and top-half (to the point where, frankly, the only way I see it being fixed is to have one half completely redrawn and while I wanted perfection, that much effort to get it is too much), this will do well enough. A good reference image, and I should be able to get it looking nice.
Next page will be even harder, though. It involves an angle I dread drawing: straight at the camera, full profile--and worse, it's dynamic. Extremely dynamic. In fact I might even try a google search of 'dynamic entry' to find the references I'm looking for, dynamic. It's an instantly-recognizable, highly-used pose, but one incredibly easy to mess up, especially with the proportions.
Definitely will need every bit of luck I can get wished on it, but I think if I can pull it off, you'll love it.
