Completed a script! 300 words, 1st gig for a talented voice actress – she will return to work after Dec 30 ( young, and likely back from college visiting family through holidays). I have 2 more gigs planned for this actress.
In the meantime, I wrote a script for a talented actress that I recently discovered, that is active. 70 words. Character dialogue, to go with character art! I just put in the order ( 12/18/2019 12:01 am) and it is supposed to be delivered on Dec 19, by 11:55pm.
The script is a general array, a test, to see how the actress handles the vocal directions. The audio can supplement navigation for the visual novel, and give me something to work with, as I design it. Starting off with several characters, with phrases that reflect their character, which can accompany the art, and give them more depth.

And most vexing of all – or problematic at the time; was how to describe a paradigm, wherein the subject keywords, instantly alienate and prejudice the majority of readers to be unreceptive to the experience I wanted to share. The experience of being alienated, by esoteric knowledge, education, status, abilities, experiences, and, limited by the general ignorance of popular culture, in ways to express a tragic irony, that is on a level Shakespearean – that dispossesses many from preserving the livelihood of their loved ones. But thwarted, by the disinformation, assumed to be true, by an industry that is willing to profit at the expense of the health of the audience, which vehemently defends the propaganda that disenfranchises them from their livelihood.

*In my opinion, reproduction ‘study‘ drawings’ are a great meditation, and test of patience.
I experience it as a challenge, and supreme effort of will power. That’s why, I prioritize them; since they require the most energy, concentration.
( My arms, and hands get tired in a way they never do for drawings I invent – holding the paper, and not disturbing the reference comic; keeping them in a starting position, lined up with the edge of the table). Redrawing them is much less effort ( with each redrawing)
Drawing in a default personal ‘style’, is more ‘fun’. I find, overtime, that doing studies is more efficient way to approach getting the image to look right. Often, an artist can become frustrated, trying to draw something, that doesn’t look the way they want. Sometimes redrawing it multiple times, doesn’t achieve the desired look.
As Rob Marzullo said ( paraphrase): ” Artist’s draw what they see. The key way to get better at drawing is to draw things you can see. Eventually, you can draw them with out using references, but any artist knows, and has used references to develop their skill at some time. “
My approach, has been to set up a curriculum of studies, and do them whenever I feel ready. The ideas I get, I make sure to mark down in a way I can revisit. My goal is to have the repertoire of ‘reference based’ studies, as the backbone, to ensure quality of forms ( often lacking in many artworks seen on the internet). Then, when I have professional panels for every scene, cover, painting; I can apply it to original ideas. Sort of multi tasking; with an emphasis on skill development.
