I figure you've all guessed that the visit to DC was more successful (so far) than the visit to Marvel. I just had issue #6 of VIGILANTE come out from DC this week and it was okay. I must admit that I think my layouts looked much better than the finished piece, but everything was SO rushed I am surprised it looks anywhere as close to good as it does.
Here's my rant for this post. I've read the reviews for 5 and 6 (my two issues for now) and I am irritated and amused that in one of the recent ones my art was classified "dated" because of the amount of background detail I have in the panels.
Yeah. Heaven forbid we should actually be able to tell where we are in the story.
I'm kind of torqued that you guys settle for crappy storytelling and lazy, pin-up art instead of a solid, well-drawn story.
Now, I admit, I think that there are aspects of my storytelling that need updating, but BACKGROUNDS!!
Gimme a break.
I'd love to hear about it from you.
I'm posting a layout for you to compare to the finished art.
See ya soon, I hope.
