Since Jep and Marbs did the journal posts I think I should at least have one?
So where do I even begin on… I guess starting from actually saying “ Hey we like this idea why not do something with it?” It’s like.. at first I’ll admit that I didn’t think much of actually doing a group project. I honestly love doing group projects… but never have I been more serious about them than with AAC. So at first when starting the project I naturally shit out as many references and ect. as I could in a short period of time (because I am a beast). But y'know that was at a point where we werent taking this much seriously I guess? or at least I was'nt. I was trying to manage life problems and really I put AAC last. But honestly I never wanted to stop with it. It wasnt until a few months ago that I really started taking this seriously. HONESTLY I remember the exact moment that I wanted to do this for real.
We were walking to the grocery store, And Me and marb were talking about how some artists tend to announce projects and never do them and keep making the reference sheets over and over and over. And how they never seemed to get things done with focusing on every little mistake.
Stephanie pointed out HEY! youre doing that now with AAC!!! (I did so many reference sheets. So many that I am ashamed of and that I will eventually must up the courage to show everyone).
But it was at that moment.. I did NOT want to be one of those people I was complaining about. So I stopped being a hypocrite and got to work!
I am very pleased with how all the characters are turning out, and it’s honestly been a huge learning experience!
The more sheets I’m doing the less revisions I’m getting.
“UM..THIS IS GREAT KIWI BUT COULD YOU ONLY GIVE CAPULET ONE WRINKLE? ”
But it’s been a great learning experience for me. I’m glad we all stuck with it.
Another thing that I find interesting is that it’s a little difficult to be serious. This is a serious themed story and well.. I’m not a serious person. (well technically the story has funny moments but dkjfaskd)
So it’s at least nice that I can make silly notes on the style guide and everyone understands what I’m talking about.
I think I’ve been good about not being too stupid when it comes to aac.
but that doesnt mean I DONT draw stupid doodles.
I’ll do a follow up compilation post for dumb aacs later. I have so many.
