I've always found comic book styles interesting and inspiring and I've practised drawing in them more than any others. When I was growing up I would always copy images that I liked from comic books so its a style I'm used to and enjoy doing. Before coming on this course being a comic book artist has always been something I think I would of really enjoyed doing.
Since coming on the course I've pushed myself to draw more realistically and from life instead of photographs as much as possible. It has been quite difficult for me at times and when I get most stressed out at drawing I tend to revert to my comic book style.
I feel much more confident in my ability to draw in a come book style rather than a realistic one which impacts the strength of my drawings.
