From the start I've always been more of a writer than a visual artist. Game Over started as a fanfiction and remains a fanfiction. When I write, I can describe what I see a character or location as in my mind and let the reader think of exactly how the character looks like. In such case, both the reader and myself are responsible for the resulting mental image. In sprite comics however, it's all up to me, by which I mean I'm the one holding all the pressure; all the viewer has to do is, well, view (y'all lazybones). A picture may be worth a thousand words but it's a very different language; as can be seen in sprite mouths, one pixel added, removed, or shifted changes the entire expression. This can apply for pretty much anything done with sprites, which is why I don't like spriting nor bother to improve. I'm simply not good with creating images solely by computer; I have to do at least the outline hand-drawn in nearly all of my half-decent computer-colored works at DA. Anyone seen my hand-drawn Flash? The images stink; they get the job done, but they look terrible. That is what my freehand drawing with a mouse or heat-sensitive mousepad looks like.
Boy have I tangeted.
Anyway, I feel like I'm drifing back toward writing. Which is good. Writing I can do and do well; all I need is a notepad and pencil or a computer and keyboard, nothing else (except of course for the ideas, which I have plenty of), so I can do it anywhere I go. I'm not ever going to leave SJ though; among other things, I don't know of any official 2ES mirrors.
