Back To Square One (16th March 2010)





The following image will perfectly sum up/paint a picture of my 'recent' feelings for the GRAND HUNTER comic project that I've been working on for the past couple of months.







It's no surprise really - because of work, running errands back home, planning for a holiday to Bali, making application for a higher duties/supervisor role in my department of E-Gaming, chillin' out and relaxin' with family and friends - I didn't really get much time to dedicate to the comic series as of recent.


Not to say that is a bad thing because my priorities comes first and the comics are not a top priority in my life - it's really an extra as so to speak. My passion for drawing comics, cartoon and Sonic fan art is (as mentioned many times throughout my lifetime) a hobby and always will be. It's an escape from reality to put it in another sense - and it's a pretty expensive hobby since it takes up a lot of my time that can be spent more on going out and socialising with real people/networking and such - an all important step if you want to get into a relationship and have a family of your own one day in the near future.


But nevertheless the frustration comes at a time when I thought I had GRAND HUNTER ready and set in motion - I thought I was ready to deliver the pages to my fellow fans and readers of the series and get them engaged in the story of my comic creations. That is not the case as of today. Why? Well I want to be honest with you all...


I'm not satisfied with the work put into the comic project.


So to keep it simple the concept for the first saga which consists of 4 issues (each containing around 20-22 pages) was not good enough for my liking. There were plot holes. The bad guys weren't solid enough to hold an engaging purpose in the story and the plot was too complex. In addition I was still indecisive about the comic style/format to be used.


You can have a preview of my (to be scraped) works towards Issue 01 below. There are 6 pages (all except for the first) that needed to be coloured after I've done another 6 progressive pages in black and white sketch form.  


Let me know what you think of the execution so far...



Issue 01 - Adventure In The Desert - Page 01 - To be scraped.




Issue 01 - Adventure In The Desert - Page 02 - To be scraped.




Issue 01 - Adventure In The Desert - Page 03 - To be scraped.




Issue 01 - Adventure In The Desert - Page 04 - To be scraped.




Issue 01 - Adventure In The Desert - Page 05 - To be scraped.




Issue 01 - Adventure In The Desert - Page 06 - To be scraped.




Now that you've read through my most recent stuff for the official GRAND HUNTER story now it's time to say good bye and say hello to something new and refreshing at the beginning of APRIL 2010. I will try to make that as my deadline for some fresh material on the GRAND HUNTER front. Hope you can join me then! ;)



Visual Step By Step for 'Mad Desert Dash' (12th March 2010)





Well you know me, lately at the end of each coloured concept piece (that's based off my original cartoon series) I post up a visual guide of the creation process for that specific concept piece.


Here it is in 4 easy steps:


01 --> SKETCHING




02 --> INKING




03 --> ADDING THE BASE COLOURS




04 --> SHADING




05 --> FINISHING TOUCHES/FINAL PRODUCT




That is all for now! I've got a ton of work to catch up so if you'll excuse me I shall get back to you all when I'm free!

Keep on drawing and keep on inspiring! *thumbs up*

(Sorry about that. I hate it when I mess up icons. No wonder I don't use them very often. Bythe way, if you want to know more about me or my character just ask me and I'll give ya' information. Also, Hikaru is a hedgehog, so it could be a good start of a hedgehog meeting a wombat.)

Very impressive work Elson! I like how you show how to make the creativve details set in motion. Maybe I could try that sometime with some of my drawings. But I have a least one question....Could I borrow Ruby, Fei and Ashworth in a story I want to make when I get back? It woulbe be lovely if I used your characters. But here's what I'm going to do. If you say yes here's what I will do with the story; First I will need Ruby, Fei and AShworth's personalities. Second; I will use there personalities as a role play story. (That's how I do all of my stories.) Third after I make the chapters of the whiole story in the authors comments I will put odnw the characters and write down the creators and who they belong to. For xample; Hikaru Uzumaki created by; :iconhikari1017: Ashworth the Wombat created by; :icondarkspeed:
That's what I had in mind. But I will do that in a couples day if you let me dpo so. I promise I will credit about your charaacters and how they are yours.
So if you say yes, just send me the message and I will look at it by tuesday, because I'm leaving today. So if you say yes just send me the message and I'll check on it when I come back. (Sorry if you hate me repeating. I have a tendency of doing that. By the way, Ashworth is so cool! ^^)

Writers Block/Not Satisfied With Finished Product:

Well, I can tell you feel a bit flustered at the current point of events in your comics and such, but I have a small bit of advice for you.

Chillaxxxxxxxx.

Take a few days off, go to the beach(if you're near it), spend time with your friends, sleep in, try a new hobbie, anything to get you away from your work!

Whenever I have writers block for my fan fics, whenever I goof off the problem seems to have disapered in my mind by the time I get back.

Yes, your readers may have to wait a bit longer, but if they were really your fans, they will wait.

(P.S. I'm not saying you live in your house drawing all day like a hermit, I just suggest doing more)

Hope I helped!

I can understand you, Elson. I'm so busy lately too! I can't go the rehersals with my choir as much as I wanted to... It's natural that you are not feeling satisfied enough with your Grand Hunter lately if you haven't time enough to dedicate to them. But you use to get good ideas and I see that you're edvertising us about something new and refreshing! ^^ Well, I'm sure that a break in Bali will make you feel much better and inspired! :hug:

Don't sweat it, this is just typical writer's block. Your creating something entirely new and original, so this to be expected. I know its frustrating because of all the work and time you put into this series thus far, and BTW, the line art is superb. My recommendation is first: scrap any preconceived deadlines you have given for yourself and take a break. Go enjoy your trip to Bali and just bring a sketch book with you and scribble down on ideas you might have along the way. You never know when that great concept idea might strike you, and I have feeling you just might find it along the way.

After a while, take a look at the possible concepts you have compiled in the sketch book and expand upon them. Draft a quick outline of bullet points in 5 minutes to see what direction the plot may take. Once you have that great idea and direction, flush out those bullet points in the comic. And again, don't pressure yourself with deadlines; when you find that gold, the work will just flow from it. You don't owe us anything here, we just appreciate your talents and that you you share it with the world. This is your hobby and you need to live your life as well. When the comic pages are ready, then present them; but just set goals, not deadlines.

My final recommendation is to work through this new concept even if you might be a bit dissatisfied along the way, as long as you have an overall direction to go that your happy with. Individual pages can be redone over time. When I was in school for my undergraduate degree, my instructors would always say "A project is never complete, but at some point you have to say your 'done'"; and I have found its a pretty good quote to live by in this regard.

Take a break, get some rest, and enjoy your trip.

Hmm...Well, I think it's pretty cool. The only thing I don't get though is, why is Ruby trying to sink her own friends in quick sand?O_O"

Anyway, over all it looks pretty awesome.^^ And yeah, when trying to plan out some ideas of mine I get stressed too cause I like...Have no idea what the heck should happen here and there! UGH!!! Can drive an artist mad!

But like everyone else here has said, don't worry about it to much...Listen to some music, take a look outside, watch a funny movie! All of these things help inspire me sometimes. =) Just do something that helps you come up with fresh new ideas!

You could also go Horse back riding and call the horse Fei!^^

Fei : WHAAAAT????

*Cough* Anyway, you'll find something that wil inspire you.^^ And you can enjoy yourself while being inspired to!!^_^

I understand. You have your priorities in place. The best you can do from your new perspective is to be sure that you're for the most part, satisifed with what you're putting out. If you're satisifed, then we will be, if you aren't...people can tell.

With that being said, I really do think you should keep the Lognites and the way that Ash and the gang break the fourth wall. You don't tend to see the characters break the fourth wall in adventure stories, and you definitely do NOT see the characters make an attempt to bring you in PERSONALLY to the story. That's original, and an underused type of thing and utilizing that can really help your comic stand out. The only series I've seen that does something similar to that is the MAXIMUM RIDE series. The first chapter of the book is one of the main characters more or less presenting a dialogue to the reader, making some bold claims. It definitely piqued my interest once I read it...and those books have sold a LOT of copies. And its not like people are going to be saying that you're ripping off Max Ride either...lemme tell ya, its waaaaay different from your story and I don't think that you can really "rip off" literary devices. XD

Sorry about your struggles ;__; If you ever wanna talk about plot issues, comic plans, and the like, hit me up on Skype! Maybe I can help. I know all too well when there's a comic part I'm really frustrated over, one of the best things to do is just tell the plot to a friend.. and seeing what the friend thinks of it. You're aiming to entertain a reader, so a reader would be your best bet!

Its a shame to hear that you feel that way about your project, I personaly believe it's been presented really well and unlike a lot of comics I've seen in the past it has a certain charm to it. But I can understand feeling really unsatisfied with a project (Hell dunno why I haven't dumped VVV yet :B )
But if you want my honest opinon, don't give up on this comic, I really dont wanna see you give up on it. Heck it's better to be socialising with people in real life and such I know that all too well, but I think if you can sort out a schedule to focus souly on your comic you'll feel pretty satisfied you took the time to finish it.
Gotta say I'm loving the lay out of these pages, you've done a far more superior job then me at managing speech bubbles D: I struggle placing those, and the locations and character just look so appealing. It really would be a shame to see the project pushed aside only to collect dust

I reboot without having drawn anything first! X_x; You should see my notebooks on both The Alliances and Quasar. Due to around four years of work, I have 16 filled on the Alliances, and 5 on Quasar, mostly toying and scrapping with ideas. Then two full of written notes for each. ;) Rebooting isn't fun but it's often neccissary. So instead of focusing on drawing, I focus completely on the characters. You gotta know the way they think down to a key before I dare draw them, and you gotta give your reader the same hints too. You gotta give yourself Mulitple personalities when thinking about this stuff.

For example, people give me flack all the time about Quiver's clothing design, they say it's to simple, but, Quiver has a very in-the-box way of thinking. He enjoys simpler things in life, and can get by happily on little to nothing. So why should he have extreme, flamboyent clothing? :XD:

Much in the same way Ashworth is naked, because I'm sure it gives his more wiley spirit a sense of freedom and truth. There's nothing he'd really hide from people in terms of personality, he's just him, and not exactly withdrawn. (I'll laugh if I'm not even close, then be slightly embarassed.)

Taking note of these things hold your character closer, and makes it easier to write for them, because you'll know their reactions, and how they percieve things better, and therefor can mold them into any situation. People should be able to ask any question about your character and you should be able to answer it without thinking to much. (Such as, what's Ashworth's view on natural human (Or whatever they are) reaction? Does he think it's just nature? )

I'm sure much of this you already know though. =D Don't give in Darky, I'm excited to see your comic!

I know very well this sensation... of don´t liking how´s it going and reset the whole project. Before release XDragoon, it had 4 reboots before appear the final product. Many things changed, I added some characters, removed others. Was 3 years of conception before the release and yet there´s some stuff I wanted to add before, change some things or remove - but after get 400 pages done, reboot is the last thing I want to do with XDragoon. 8D

My suggestion is to relax, reflect and think on things you´d like to put on it. The most important thing while you do a comic, is that you enjoy working on it, the story and characters.

I dunno what is worser: do something all over again, or being stuck in what you wanted to do. I am stuck in "Eternal Purity" so far as well, no idea how to go on, or how to change into the next arc... and also the time that I spend otherwise not with just drawing.
so yeah, but on another note, I have found a new style of doing comics on the computer. [link]
I have been experimenting in doing comics digitally. This is ma first trial in a full shaded comic. If I could maintain a similiar style for EP... but then, my tablet broke recently ;___; so I won't know for the time being.

So far, the current works of the comic you have up are pretty interesting, I will say. I wouldn`t worry about the frustration too much, though. Everyone gets that with comics, and in some cases, a piece of art that demands effort. I mean, I get this problem all the time, I`ll start sketching something, then I take a look at it and think "nah...", merely dismissing it as not up to my expectations. Or maybe it`s just 'cause I`m a lazy bum. *Slapped*

Either way, just don`t rush yourself too much or set your standards way too high; otherwise that`ll just create even more problems 'till you find yourself banging your head on your desk repeatedly.

And of course, life is more important, so hope everything goes smoothly. ;)

Thanks Jess, your feedback and insight is very much appreciated. ;)

I will try not to set my standards too high and try to keep my approach as simple as possible... Probably should just do a comic strip a week or something like that and follow the story from there without any planning... Just one comic strip a week that can be on it's own... Yeah that might work. :D

And eventually when you combine a whole bunch of them you can make it into a series/one complete issue/volume! Yeah I like the sound of that. ^^

I`d love to see what happens in the coming times ahead, hopefully a complete, well-rounded comic that you`re happy with! (And on a side note, I will make sure I read it, too, since I`m a lazy bum). Besides, whether I know a fellow artist well or not, I wouldn`t like to see you or any else for that matter be flat-out disappointed in their work so far considering it is already amazing. :)

Oh dear...frustrated? That's the 1st time I saw it from you, Elson-boy.
The pages still looked nice, even tho you said they're just not working out, well except for the 2nd last one. But the front and the last one were pretty awesome, probably because of the details.

Plotholes? Like what? :-?
What about the bad guys? Did you plan to have multiple small-fries working for the big baddie in the end (like Baroque Works saga from OP), or were you going up in diferent direction?
That's some serious things to work on there, Elson.

I hope that the April brings some fresh breeze of inspiration to you. =)

Still, if you just happen to change your mind about the "proposal", you know where to find me, k? ;)

Will, be waiting, Elson-boy. ;)

Anyway, there's also something that kinnda struck me down on negative side from the point of view that Ruby was considered the bad guy of the 1st issue, but that may be probably because I still got that hint from the TGAF, where she used to play as main protagonist of the series.
I mean, the logo clearly shows that Ashworth is suppose to be the main this turn, but well...

Also, with the refreshed approach, does that mean you'll remove Leo out?
Reply
:icondarkspeeds:
darkspeeds Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Leo is still for keeps. Ashworth is the main protagonist from here forth. But he is surrounded by support characters that act as main protagonists or support characters much like in Asterix's cases. Asterix would be like Ashworth in terms of role in the series.

:iconja-the-shadow-hunter:
Ja-The-Shadow-Hunter Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Well, that's good to know. =)
Because if I've learned anything (especially from Oda-sama), is that it's good to have support characters act as partly protagonists and have their rightful share of the spotlight all the time. Because if you look at DBZ, in the long run, only the main protagonsit always got all the fame, while the support characters became pretty much useless, which is still the common mistake in most of today's comix.
So lemme get this straith:
if Ashworth = Asterix
that makes Ruby = Ob- Oh dear! XD Ya better hide before she figures you out and gives you the "Paradise-you-know-what"! :lmao:

|D; Ok- I'll admit that lil' doodle's pretty damn cute~

But that's understandable really~ :XD: Considering you're attempting to have a life, I'd say it's dedication for all the work you've done thus far~ (Not just in this comic, but all the pages you've done over the years.)

As far as being un-satisfied with your work, that's understandable too~ :XD: If anything it sets a mindset that you want to continue to improve!

However something really dangerous to keep in mind... when you do get back into the groove, make sure you're at least satisfied with the results you get, even if it's not "perfect". Otherwise it's just gonna take a bit longer to get it out how you want it to be, or you may end up changing it some much you'll just get more frustrated with it- You've shown in the past that you can set yourself at a good pace. Don't lose that~

And don't forget that you'll improve as you go along~ ;P

Also- life comes first~ It happens~

A-hem... Bulge *cough, cough* What am I sayin'? Thanks for the compliments and pieces of advice Jenise. :)

I don't have any probs with fanart/fancomics since I can easily free style it without any hassle on worry about plotlines and such - and it'll still get well recieved! But working on fan comics is too easy and not so much a challenge - since the concept is already based off an existing brand/IP.


But yeah when it comes to original stuff - that's where it gets hard and your expectations tend to be far superior to the fan works you've made in the past.

I'll try and find that 'good pace' and try to apply it with GRAND HUNTER + Cloud Raiders... I really need it right now. XD

Yeah, comics can be really a frustation, doesn't right? Is exactly for that so I don't make them yet (lack of experience, free time, family problems, lack of confidence, fear of the future, etc)
As we all say, is completely fine with your plans about GH. Actually, all of this was been a surprise, I didn't thought that you was really making comic pages!

Anyway, time to be serious:
You are taking the right choice. Comics, honestly, are a great hobbie, but when hobbie, is put in last place in our list. Besides, when is about an original series, is extremely difficult to make a good storyline! Is much easier with fancomics, don't ya think?

I remember when before I had thousands of comic ideas for your series and none for me, lol.

Ok, I better stop talking about this. Let them say my opinion of the 6 pages.

So-many-detailed-backgrounds. WHOA!
I found funny the idea to start the comic with some insperate event that right then is told in days time before that happened.
Is really a nice work to say :) Keep the pages for some inspiration in future, maybe will be useful!


Ok, as conclusion.
Amigo, take your time that there's no deadlines :) Whatever you will present, sooner or later, whatever when, will be well received! Original art of fanart.
Up to ya!
