Funny thing, I don't remember "quality" being an element of either the Dewey Decimal or Library of Congress archiving systems. Quality is too subjective a term where art is concerned. If it weren't, Eragon and Twilight wouldn't exist as things in the popular culture.


Haha. True or cyanide and happiness. I suppose there's charm to badly drawn stuff. The writing has to be good though. What about those medium grade artists..not bad enough to capture that poorly drawn charm and not good enough to be the best of the best...sad times...sad times. Haha.

However I assume that those artists would just keep drawing until they became really good! Or maybe its all in the writing...

I'm one of those medium-grade artists. You'd be surprised how much of art is actually talent and not practice at all. It's sad to work on something for a very long time and have your best work described as average and you worst described as ... well, not described at all because no one can bear to look at it for long enough to say anything.

I know it exists, pure talent that is, but I refuse to believe that those individuals didn't work hard to get there. Most artists I'm jealous of have had way more experience in drawing and animation than me. At least that's the way I like to look at it.

I also believe that anyone can get better at drawing as long as they keep doing it.

My apologies, I didn't mean to say that hard work isn't a factor, just that hard work alone won't do it.

No worries. It would be annoying to work hard at something for years and then watch someone else do it effortlessly, I can definitely understand.

Man does anyone know this Wendy person who I have to ask about profile pics and signatures? I've asked already but when I went to find the how to tutorials, I couldn't. Are they hidden? Haha.

Hello.

I don't appear to have any PMs from you, so if you sent me one it got eaten before it got to me. Just end me the details of what you want and I'll sort it.

That may be so, but kids definitely know how awesome it is to make comics. As more and more educators are coming on board with how awesome comics are, they're even becoming part of the curriculum. If the industry is expanding anywhere, it's in the YA market.

It will be fascinating to see, in another 10-20 years, where this comics-reading generation goes.


10 years cool. 20 years, yikes! I'll be so old! Haha. I often wonder where media in general will be in 20 years. It can't just stay stagnant forever, gotta at least have nano bots and brain/optic implants or something. Just load up a webcomic from your brain. Haha. In fact upload your brain to the internet and view memories in real time...create artworks instantly using photoshop CS27s neural link. Haha. I can dream...

I'd like not to click "none", but since this was posted last month and I'm just noticing it now... Hmmm.

Yeah, you totally need to post here more often.

Also, everyone should go read this thread.

Yes, that is entirely off-topic but I don't care.

Cool. I always yearn to do these but never have the time.
