I work really hard to improving my art. One of the ways I do that is by studying the artwork of cartoonist I’d admire and look up to. Frank Cho is one of those artists. In a recent blog post he recorded the progress of a project of his, giving this masterful advice:
One of the dangers of doing these long tedious, highly detailed illustration is rushing through it, especially when you’re more than halfway finished. This is when most of the mistakes are made. If you get the urge to rush it. It’s best to walk away and come back with a fresh eye and calm energy.
That’s a pro tip for ya! Those of you who are aspiring artists/cartoonists would do well to follow it.
