Has it really been four years since I joined dA? Yes, yes it has. Goodness time flies doesn't it?
For me, I'm spending summer between a couple of relatives' places. Trying to get as much work on Stymie done as possible. I intended to write a journal recapping and reviewing everything I learned from last semester at school, but it's been awhile since that happened. Can't recall enough of it that I could write anything intelligent about it. So perhaps I'll just say a few things here anyways.
I still intend on doing Dingo at some point. I'm hoping to get my hands on a book the talks about MI6 and read that so I can have a better grasp at historical context. I'm also changing a lot of things, hopefully to make it more concrete. Still have to figure out how to style it, and I might do it with line-work or line-less. I think they somehow take almost the same amount of time. Ink stage versus flatting stage or something like that.
I think what Stymie might have over what Dingo had is it's more inspired. Admittedly, when I first did Dingo, not only did it only lack direction ALOT, but the characters were heavily referential. Not necessarily I bad thing, but the characters in Stymie are more of their own nature. I have a little bit of reference for Wes' character, but the rest just are. It makes them seem a little more authentic to me.
Remind me to make a review of the things I learn from Stymie. Admittedly, its been quite alot.
Cheerio dA folks.
