Have you ever noticed that when you decide to make a healthier decision for yourself, there’s always a reminder that you want a donut instead? This happens to me towards the beginning of the year when I have my resolutions. Unfortunately, this is also the time of year where you have leftover Christmas cookies, New Year’s brie, and then Valentine’s treats. And worst of all, leftover baked goods go on sale at the grocery store.
I first posted my comic Store in February 2019. This comic demonstrates how I implemented more complex backgrounds and stronger storytelling poses into my work. At the time, this was a dramatic upgrade over my previous comics, but four years later I’ve decided that there’s still room for improvement. Heck, at the time I was still using "everyone’s favorite font."
All in all, I’m very happy with how this comic turned out. Despite me having a better artistic foundation, this was still a challenging comic because of the more perspective-heavy backgrounds. But hey, struggling means that you’re growing, and I hope to grow more by improving my past comics.
Now I’d like to ask you guys a few discussion questions. What do you think of the changes I made to this comic? How would you approach fixing the original comic? Are there other perspective errors in the original or the new version that I didn’t mention? How would you have adjusted the character acting to read the same emotions but clearer?
