wooooow all's we need is ink but if you havent mastered that yet im still happy looking at this peice and its amazing how you havent got any rubber marks on there i mean if it were me i would have rubbed it out soooo many times thats i would go all hulk and rip up the paper and bite a pencil jk but the paper part yes
I would make a joke about successful artists on deviantArt but this just too cool. I'm presuming you hail from the US then? Your art is really exceptional, it must have been no problem breaking into the comics biz.
I could answer your message with an essay, so to save you the boredom let me say that networking trumps talent in getting professional work in general. Depending on perspective, that could either be a good or bad thing. My situation is in and of itself pretty strange as well, lol.
I see. Yes I am planning to, not that I'm saying you should make the mistake of looking at my gallery, as this is the account I used at age fourteen to do pornographic requests I couldn't get away with on my "proper" account. The art is old, and bad. Its just a difficult industry to get into, there aren't really that many places that will take you up without art-related career experience, regardless of your degree or education.
Wow, your question has kinda inspired me, so I'm gonna bring it up on one of my upcoming podcasts. I'll see what my podcast mates have to say on the topic as well. Also, I did look through your gallery, and I can see that you have talent.
