Last time I wrote about the lack of inspiration. And that I just have to stop searching for it.

Guess what? Worked.

During the last about three weeks I've been drawing ten pages of WoD comics.

Once a friend of mine told that it's boring to draw so much the same character or just WoD overall. I felt kinda bad 'cause I really enjoy creating original characters - it inspires playing and vice versa. But when I finally stopped, many watchers of mine were giving me feedback of wanting to see more Acacia & fellas and how I improve.

Years ago in a bar I met a man, a talented comics artist, who quite roughly told me about "Your anatomy skills suck. And if I were you I'd just forget about using ink." At first it felt naturally a bit bad but what I did was that I spent the next day drawing ONLY hands and practicing different inking styles. Even though the critique was not very constructive, it was useful. Couple weeks ago I met the same man in that very same bar. I didn't recognize him at first but he did and came to apologize. After all these years. He said he'd love to see how I've improved. I told him the sad news that I have nothing to show and he felt clearly even worse. Then I told that "...But actually. For this week I have been drawing again." He encouraged me this time and told me I should continue.

So.

Let's try. I don't know the correct translation but we have this saying in Finland: "Don't lick it before it drops." So I don't dare yet to declare too much. Plus, after the school begins again the inspiration WILL suffer. Creating even one page takes me one whole day. And I mean really... a whole day.

To prove that this time I really won't leave you with nothing, here's an unfinished page to show a bit what's coming:

neitokakadut.com/Acacia/prolog…

ALSO: Any tips of what format should I use when saving the finished version? The colors seem to suffer always if I use jpg.

Hi! Acacia is actually a dhampir. :) (V:tM, Time of Thin Blood tells more!) I do nowadays also have one Toreador character among all the others but I haven't drawn her yet.

Nice to meet more WoD players!

In wintertime it is cold, but summers are just fine! The temperature is something like 17-30 degrees of celcius in summertime. :> Though, they said this summer might be cold, because of that volcano erruption in Iceland. :|
