Practicing inking for my graphic novel. I like the way I did one picture of Yana all except for the boots. So, I shall try again and see if it comes out better. I looked up some different inking styles for reference, but I still feel like I'm just guessing! Hm... we're supposed to be working in grayscale, but maybe I should try working with a character who isn't in grayscale already... Yana is purely black and white... white skin, black hair, and black clothing. I think, if ever I create a final version, it will be in color though. That way you can actually tell that Yana looks different from everyone else. *snicker*

Oh yes, and I realized that I've done all these character sketches and stuff, but for our final project, we're supposed to do like the first six pages of our novel. And... none of my characters are in the first six pages! Well, there's a younger version of one, and maybe a younger version of another if I get that far...

I'm also realizing how much effort must go into putting together a graphic novel. I don't know which would be easier, a graphic novel or a regular novel... I also wish my artistic skills were better, but I'm at least learning a bit about composition and stuff. And, you don't have to have amazing artwork to make a graphic novel, although in the genre I'm writing, you do see more realistic and detailed drawings, so I suppose I'm worried about measuring up to that. Oh well, I'll just go with my style and hopefully improve with practice.

Oh yes, have a Gaara icon! One of the girls in my class was wearing a Gaara shirt today, hehe. I was so excited when I saw it.
