I'm still not entirely sure what goes into these things though by the looks of it, it's any old rubbish. Anyway, I'm just going talk(/bore the hell out of anyone that reads this) about my artistic plans which seems appropriate enough considering this is an art site.
Been out of Uni for not far from a year now (bout 9 months), the irregular, no plans for the day doesn't work well with me, though to be honest I was equally bad with procastination at Uni let alone without any structure. Anyway, recently turned new year, new profile and all and I was initially thinking to post a picture on a some what regular basis, maybe once a week or once a fortnight to force myself into creating regular artwork. As it turns out, procastination is an undefeatable force to be reckoned with. This aside I have a few artwork ideas, some a bit tough but others I might be able to do and some I've even started so who knows, I might try to stock up and begin my posting regularly plans.
So, one of my biggest muses so far has been my "Knight & Sol" story. Knight & Sol follows the lives of Jack Knight and Charlie Sol in the physically and economically different sides of Fortress City set within a dystopian world (because, like vampire stories, everyone does atleast one dystopian story). Charlie lives in the rich centre, his life is controlled and monitored, his health kept perfect, his every pleasure taken care of. Jack alternatively lives on the poorer outskirts of the city a place reminiscent of the slums today, Jack's existance an ever struggle to just find food. Their lives become intertwined and their characters end up complimenting each other really well as opposed to conflicting as one would guess from their different environments and personalities; Jack being quite depressive, sick of life and the pain that comes with it and Charlie being such a childish character, who can really find the beauty in anything.
I have not yet uploaded any of the story and probably wont in a long time as I have found myself rewriting, removing and retconing so much (using non-linearity doesn't help) but I have liked the premise and the characters way too much to let it die. Despite this, expect to see some drawings of the characters and I may also do related comics remaining completely separate from the story but also as an aid for me to work out the character interactions. I have also been in two minds over doing the story as a graphic novel but that will be far in the future.
I also have plans to maybe start a webcomic about my life mostly set during my time at uni. The idea is that it will be exaggerations of (most of the time) true events as a way for me to do my typical humour of taking the micky out of myself. One of my flatmates (who second to me will be the most recurring character in the comic if I remember to ask his permission) said I was one of the best things about university because of how funny he found me. I like to add, him being a person that usually insults me, he doesn't mean I was intentionally funny. To explain this easily; one time he just burst out laughing because of me, to this day I do not know why, as far as I'm aware I was just sat there doing nothing in particular. And so hopefully I might be able to capture some of that though I am skeptical. Anyway, to give an idea how viable this idea is if I were to get round to it, I so far have almost or maybe even over 10 ideas (I should really of wrote them down but meh).
Finally as a side note, for those who don't know, I did a medical related degree and hope to go back to uni to do another and become a doctor. Now, being a person with a keen interest in medicine and drawing, it's really a given that I will do some anatomy related drawings and practises.
So, yeah, that's really it. Hopefully I will be more productive. Sorry about the rubbish title.
