I'm done visiting DA for now. So I'm going to do a little bit of planning for my future artwork. Those will be based on my personal improvement work and sharing everything I've learned from my own perspective and of course, in my on art. I haven't decided on which characters I'm going to use but in order to keep things simple I'm going to use a star system like Osamu Tezuka did with his characters.
As for the actual story, there won't be a story or even a continuity. It'll be in separate illustrations like in a children's book that present different topics in a semi-consistent way, because everything I'm going to discuss will be on the inside of people's minds rather than external stuffs. The biggest challenge right now is to map out my ideas in my head so they don't get all mixed up. Another problem I have to face is the issue with making actual illustrations instead of low-resolution doodling because if needs be I might have to get this stuff published later on, though I hope it doesn't come to that.
Some sample topics I can come up right now might have something to do with self-esteem and self-image, or maybe on the whole issue with ego if I really wanted to dig deeper. But I'm just going to focus on the artwork for now and how to represent my thoughts in images that everybird can understand.
That's it for now, I won't be back for another month,. I have to concentrate my efforts on starting this new project so I don't want any distractions.
