Pieces of my Heart (originally posted on Live Journal)

I’ve been productive! My latest three pages under the cut and a video of creating the last one. I tried a bit harder with this video, both with the talking to the camera (eek!) and the ‘editing’.

I’m not 100% happy with any of them (although I couldn’t even really say why.. maybe I just feel perpetually unsatisfied and am projecting it onto my journal as well??) but I’m really glad and proud that I’m actually DOING. Which I think is the most important part for any of us who feel inhibited about being creative.

I had the idea for this page but it turned out a bit different. In my head it was all perfect but in reality the colours didn’t work as well as I’d hoped. I love the hearts themselves and their texture, but the background I’m not too sure about.

I have no idea how to do shading so I’m sure the floor of the stage is all wrong, but it was fun to do. And I love cats =p

I talk about the motivation behind this page in my video below.
