Lately, I've been working on another version (what was to be the final version) of the comic "Miss Doomsday". The image above was to be the second panel of page 2 (for the previous version, go here: [link]
). While this version is sexier and I really like the pose, the rest of the page just didn't cut it for me. Furthermore, I looked back at the earlier version and I really liked a lot of what I saw there. It isn't perfect but a lot of comic art isn't.
I'd been studying Wil Eisner's "The Spirit" and have been admiring the hell out of his artwork. However, I noticed that there were some strange anatomical anomalies in his work, incongruities in his backgrounds, and several other flaws. While I'm not in the same league as Mr. Eisner, I find I have perfectionist tendencies and, if something's not perfect, I scrap the whole thing.
I've just been thinking of going with the original version of "Miss Doomsday" seen here: [link]
She's not as beautiful as the Anne above or in the new version of page 1 but a guy can go nuts drawing the same comic over and over.
Anyhoo, I'm just in my usual big ball of confusion, I suppose. I often find myself torn and tugged in various directions, artistically.
Any thoughts or comments would be greatly appreciated.
