Okay, I'm a little embarrassed it took me so long to finish this. This was a group pic I started a few months after my friend's comic officially ended in 2012. I started it several times, and kept scrapping it because I just didn't like how it looked. But I finally did it.Ensuing
is a webcomic my friend dragynstorm
started (along with one of her friends) while we were in high school in 2002. It was a great comic, but it also got me into drawing comics myself. I had already started drawing cartoon characters, and I read plenty of comics, but I guess the thought of "this is something I could try" never even crossed my mind until then.
Of course what came immediately from that was a pretty lame comic I did in high school, which I can't look at anymore without cringing. But I'll always be proud of the effort I put into it, and it really helped lay a foundation for the way I draw today (dragynstorm
even got me started on Photoshop basics!). Anyway, that's why the characters above are so important to me. I guess they're kind of why I decided to take my art seriously.
