So, since even the slightest amount of pressure gets to me, I present you with this little experiment. I've wanted to make a comic for awhile now. Nothing mind blowing, just in a style that fits me, with a story that doesn't suck. Seems like a modest request of myself, yet everytime I've sat down to create that, my brain takes control and turns it into a quest to make the "perfect" project.
So after *cough* years of fighting myself and the failed attempts to create the most perfect work EVAR, I came to a compromise that my brain and i agree on. I'm going to "practice" making a comic with an idea that i don't care about at all. A complete homework assignment for myself. I get to practice all the things necessary for when i actually get a good idea, and it turns out that its pretty fun just to go through the motions.
My office has a rich lore just among its employees, so i borrowed some characters from some lunch time conversations i've had with them, and voila! They write a story for me without it being a real chore, and i get to practice layout, inking, etc. Here's some samples of that:
