ANNOUNCEMENTS

DreamCatcher Readership Survey!

Hey guys! I created a little survey to see what kinds of folks I have reading this comic, and I'd really appreciate it if you could take a couple minutes to fill it out! You can find it here!

OTHER PROJECTS

If you like DC for its writing and characters, check out my webnovel Kody over on Tapas! It's got vampires who are mortal, were-creatures that aren't wolves, and some reluctant humans that have to put up with them all.

Filler: Leviathan.

I Say...

Hazumirein says,

Okay. I hate to do this to you, but obviously there's no page today. Almost literally every minute this week that I'm not at work, I'm doing school stuff. I have no idea how two online classes can possibly be so time-consuming. In fact, looking at how similar next week will probably be, I would say to kind of expect filler for the remainder of the month. I mean, I'll try to sneak a page in somewhere, but don't get your hopes up. I'm sorry guys, you know I hate doing this. At least I won't be one of those comics that just flat out stops updating for months on end :P (Been there, done that, never again.)

Anyway, as far as filler material goes, I haven't even had time to like, doodle anything DC related. So I thought I'd show you some of my school stuff. This is Leviathan (Levi for short), he's a part of my Unemployed Angels plotline and I'm modeling him in my low poly 3D class this quarter. I'll show you some pics of the actual model when I get it done; it's coming along nicely. This was just the initial character sketch and some detail-y stuff. I've also got the actual model sheet drawings, but those aren't as fun.

Uh, anyway, just for kicks, have a Question of the Update: I'm gonna try something different this time. Maybe you guys can help me with my homework. For one of my classes, I have to write an essay addressing this question: Does an artist having a certain "style" (as in, common, recognizable elements in all their work) limit their creativity? Like, would an artist be better if everything they created was entirely different? Or no? It's mostly an opinion question; I have to make an argument for my answer. What do you guys think, though?

And You Say...

pokesam says,

Oh, no. When an artist has a certain style, it only makes their art looks different. It does not limit their creativity at all. Only one's brain limits their own creative understanding.

maxinesheela says,

I have many styles and it does not limit my creativity. I have manga style, which, adimtidly, takes ages and I can only do certain poses. I have my chibi style, which I use when I doodle. FUN FUN! And I have a style which is my crative style, lines going one way for the outline and lines going the other way for coloring E.g. - and l.
Oh, and my normal style, which is halfway between everything. It is my
best style and most often used.

So yea, do what you like, I don't care.

animalfreak252 says,

Well my opinion is that if you are using your own style, not trying to force yourself into one, then your style is HOW you express your creativity. For instance if you use vivid colors and long strokes with paintings and you enjoy that then thats your style so it will make your creativity come out in full bloom. However forcing yourself to different styles is the exact opposite. (Thats my take on it anyways, I am not really into art so dont put a lot behind it)
