I just wanna get this off my chest...

The new, cartoonish approach that I'm taking is based on the fact that I'm now more committed to achieving this now more than ever.

You can say that this is sort of a follow up to my "changes" journal post....

When I had that Art Block a few weeks ago, I just looked at what I had done so far and what I was ultimately trying to achieve and I never forgot that part of my mission statement since the start of the year was to go for a more cartoon style after developing a fascination with it. I took a look at the artists that I now adore who nail that approach perfectly. I asked myself that I have to want to do this and this time I just don't want to be halfway anymore. It began with Saya, but gradually and gradually I feel that the more that I take this approach the more that whatever anime elements that were so present before start to disappear. But at the same time, those elements and influences will always be there if not just more subtlety.

So for me, just making sure that I nail this style down in my primary goal. I know where my influences are coming from and to those artists I'm following more closely. I also mentioned before that I started to watch video tut's from toonbox studio and it's helping a lot. 

Pulling back in the coloring showed a lot more, but making a commitment to this new approach has made me feel more at home....

I almost get the sense that this style, this approach is where I naturally was gonna end up at. I see where I want this to be and I see myself ending up on this path in the veins of, Jollyjack, Zaftig, Pedro Perez, Dean Yeagle, and Chris Harper. 

And the quality never drops when I'm making the switch. 

I always feared that this approach looks too simple, considering all of that I did before, but somehow pulling pack just makes the work stand out more and the coloring has the potential to speak more in depth and volume since I'm just gonna work from one level of shading throughout. 

To kinda add the icing on the cake, to see that I'm getting a lot of reception and positive feedback from this new approach is really making me more determined to get it right. 

I'll close by saying this. Throughout the year I've been going at this apporach from the start of the February Hearts and High Heels Project, to the third and fourth style. And I got a lot of success from that, I've been feeling like I still haven't carved out an identity. It's weird because with the fifth style an this new approach, I am carving an identity....


Please please please let me know what you're thoughts about this are. 

Thanks :)
