This was something I found recently and was really surprised I never posted it. Although, as I'm saying this, I'm hurriedly checking my scraps section to see if maybe I have posted this. Yep, never posted, which blows my mind.
This was originally a test comic where I'd write a shrunken man manual for a giantess universe. I'd make it up as I went but of course, college got in the way and I never got past the first page.
The reason I'm pretty astonished is because this was made PRE-Macro. This is from 2011, before the Macro universe was ever conceived. I drew this originally to help develop a Macro style universe, and aesthetic for it and to get some coloring practice on the side. Not to cut myself short, but I wasn't anywhere as good a drawer as I am now, and this looks like I probably made this recently!
And the difference in ability comes from several reasons. 1: This was made in a scrap sketchbook. I never planned on this to see the light of day. So I gave myself carte blanch to do as good or as terrible as I could draw. That lack of worry can really help in the art making experience. 2: I took my sweet ass time with this. I remember researching 50's lifestyle illustrations for this and drawing everything like I was drawing a still life. If you look closer, there's old erased lines everywhere from me drawing over and over again till I got something I REALLY wanted out of it. Now, I'm a bit lazier. I can also draw quicker and usually get close enough to what I was thinking. This took a while, probably a solid week. And that's probably why it never got finished until now.
I worked so hard on it, I was terrified I would ruin it in the inking process. So I filed it away along with some other really great stuff I still need to get to.
So guys, if you want some tips on drawing what you love, A: Don't give a shit what others think and B: Take as long as you'd like to get what you want out of it. I know that sounds pretty basic but it's surprising how little that factors into art once pen touches paper.
