WIP: Protay, Escort of Death by TheSleepingGods
WIP: Protay, Escort of Death
Step 2 in my work for Protay, Escort of Death. I've gotten to the point where I am stuck. I am not technically knowledgeable about how to proceed and finish the piece. Fingers crossed for me.
Loading...
As a budding hobby artists I'm not particularly ashamed to say this; But I am very frightened that I'm not going to improve in my technical skills. The reason that I say this is not that I have been drawing for three days and haven't progressed to professional level. But because I've been drawing for 22  years off and on.

I can trace. I can paint over. But I can't draw or lines at all. 

So...here is my vow.

I am solemnly swearing on the beat of my heart that I WILL post drawings NO MATTER HOW AWFUL this year, 2015. And this is in hopes of progressing finally to a state I can appreciate being in myself.

My last update for 2014. Have a great new year. Count down that drop!
I think that you have a decent enough idea of what you want written. Or at least the story to be told. For that I think there's definitely promise and the humor is definitely needed.

It's too soon to properly rate for originality. But it's your own story... so it's original by default.

Technique...since that's the only part I truly feel comfortable offering guidance upon I will say: Don't start with the lead character speaking without first establishing who he is. We shouldn't see another band that we don't know associated with the MC's voice. It's a psychological thing, immediately we establish the connection of this unknown band as important. If this were a movie, it would be fine. But since it's a pilot, you must establish the main character or multiple major one's immediately.

Also, don't explain that something will be happening later. Do it immediately or if you're not...just remove that "we'll meet them later." It detracts from the professionalism of the script and makes it sound novel, which nobody wants to read if they're truly considering producing this.

Impact: I wanted to keep reading...So, well done. :D

I'm learning to be the artists I always wanted to be. It's going to take hard work and dedication but I feel now is the point in my life when I can pursue and feel good about it.

Keep in touch.
