See for yourself.
And I practiced on the most awesome panel I have at my disposal.
...Well. If I want to go all critical, there's small things: I made a mistake on her left arm by not putting the sleeve shorter (thus, not showing her hairties), her right arm isn't well-done either, as a consequence of trying to fix the perspective yet keep her face I ended up accidentally extending her neck length (making it too long now), the coloring didn't quite work perfectly, there's no texture to the clothing, but...
...Did I just make that?
That's seriously my emotion right now. Because...this. THIS. This is Ruby. This is her skirt. This is her hoodie. This is angel wings prepped with an arrow. This is her fingerless gloves. This is her mask. This is her hair. This is her eyes. This is her facial expression. This is...this is exactly. EXACTLY. How I envision her. The colors, the aesthetic...when I look at her, this is what I see.
And this is only my third attempt at using the program; I'm likely to only get better and better from here-on out.
Words fail me. I'm just so ridiculously proud of myself.
THIS is art.
This is what I can do.
...Took me three hours for what would just be one panel, but...this is where my art is at. And...it's as close to perfect as I can get. I'm happy with this as a style. I just need to make it faster from here-on out. Because DANG.
If I can do this level for every panel of every page...
...I might have a webcomic that's actually...you know. Successful not just off of my name.
When I start Red Hood Rider, there will be hype: "OMG, Ranger's making a comic!!!" (Ranger being my ComicFury name where the comic will get the most attention, though I imagine I'll still get comments on the mafia site I play on when I post it there.)
People will subscribe because it is ME making a comic. No other reason, that's enough for them.
...I think...with art like THIS. With art like this, which I can actually stand firm and call art. I think...
...I think that I will get people looking and reading because they see an ARTIST creating a webcomic with good ART.
Is something to look forward to.
Because...oh my god.
Shut up any critics.
I'm ignoring you.
Let me have this moment of euphoria. I feel like I've earned it. I MADE SOME ACTUALLY PRETTY AWESOME ART!!!
