So QQ is moving along nicely. I've got page sketches done and the first page is almost finished, so I'll make some previews for everyone to see. I'm using a lot if tones, which are pretty difficult when you're used to colors. Still, I think I got the hang of it and the comic is looking good!

Okay, so I follow artists on Instagram and one caught my eye in a negative way, today. They posted how when people compliment their work by saying "Oh, it reminds me of another artist" that it makes them feel bad because now they don't feel original.

Here's where my rant comes in: Nobody is original. Unique, sure, but to think you're doing something nobody's ever seen before is, to me, very arrogant. Your work is always going to be compared; that's how some people give feedback. It's not out of spite, it's just how they express encouragement. I don't mind the comparisons if I get them; you're always going to take from other artists and make what is unique to you.

Am I wrong? Leave comments and discuss :D
