My name is Dave, but most folks call me crazy, hence The Lunatic. I started drawing from time to time a year ago, early October 2005 actually. Before that I had dabbled in art, it was just a class that I could fool around in and have a good time being creative, but I never really saw myself doing anything with it. Halfway through 2005 that changed.
A friend of mine decided that he wanted to do a web comic based on a concept I had been writing, (I know, I know, cliche and all that.) but had horrible luck with artists. They would always seem to hijack the project or give up part way through. I told him that I'd assist him with the art if he understood that I had no formal training and absolutely no anatomical experience. He agreed with my proposal that it would become a tool for both of us to evolve as artists and writers.
Ever since then we've been pounding away at pages and what not, trying to improve with each new frame, each new page. It's been a long year since that fateful Halloween when we launched the comic and the first few pages, and already I can see the the improvements in both of our respected areas.
I intend to use this sketchbook to work on concepts and hopefully better myself as an artist. I still consider myself a fledgling in the field and am keeping an open and maleable mind.
Current Areas I'm Working On:
Anatomy (Going to be a lifelong lesson I think...)
I'll start posting images in a few moments so hang in there
