School Daze by Lysol-Jones
School Daze

Concept art for another personal project that will never go anywhere.

A super late 80s theme’d survival horror that takes place in a High School. Think Resident Evil meets Saved by the Bell.

BRO I love your art and have been following it since forever. Just wanted to recommend that you should make an artbook chalk full of your designs and get a kickStarter running to get it off to the printers and into people's hands. I know many artists would benefit from studying your lines and be inspired to the Outer Heaven by your creativity! So count me in!

I really enjoy your playfulness with colors, the explosive nature of your work while managing a very clean aspect to it. I can tell simply by looking at your art that you enjoyed yourself, and that is a tremendous accomplishment of which you should take great pride.
On a sad note, I've noticed, especially in your sequantial artworks, that this seams to, sometimes, translate in a slightly rushed or "lazy" result. It would seem as if you are already thinking of moving on to the next part of the story, or maybe even in a hurry to get there. It's hardly noticeable, but when one takes the time to look at your work as a whole, it is harder for one to miss.
It's usually the otherway around, people tend to spend too much time on their work, having a hard time remembering that the storytelling is often paramount to the art itself. In that sense, I feel you are simply slightly too enthusiastic, and much like the badly shoed shoemaked, this is all the more true when you work on your own projects. Your background and the energy and dynamism they convey, which I greatly enjoy, suffer most from this. Perhaps learning to slow down a bit would be good for you when working on your sequantial projects. Perhaps compartmentalizations of the sketching, inking and coloring process would be enough.

All this to say that I really hope to see more great work from you, and hopefully, maybe grab a book of the shelf with your name on it. ( imagine when I dislike someone's work... I should learn to leave it to praise)

Thanks for the feedback dude, it's appreciated.

I can definitely agree to rushing some things in that latest comic I posted, but for the totally opposite reason.

I was taking WAYYY to fucking long on those pages, so at some point I had to suck it up and just say, "It's done, I need to move onto the next page." I could spend forever working on a single page, but that is not productive at all. I think a major flaw in my work is that I spend too much time on things, I need to get faster, so I can draw MORE. And the more I draw, the better I'll become over time. Gotta think about the long game you know.

Again, thanks for the feedback, stuff like that is always good to hear.

It was my pleasure indeed.

Last words If I may, and they will be partly self interested on my part: I would suggest you play around with omissions. It's something you can't notice unless you begin looking for it, but in commercial work, marvel less so than Dc, you'll see a lot of times where the background is actually a single color plane, or black even. By studying those instances, you could learn where it is possible and generally accepted to skip drawing the background. While you may see it as somewhat lazier, it can often be a great tool to center back the focus towards your characters or a specific event. I find conversations can be done fast and efficiently with the most minimalistic of backgrounds. And oddly enough, some action sequence as well.
Manga may have it's faults at times, but I feel they are the masters of omission and productivity when it comes to sequential art. I'm actuallying quite fondly remembering Akira Toryama's How to draw manga, which I think had a chapter on the exact subject of finding a balance between quality and quantity. ( now I'm gonna spend the evening on facebook trying to find who I loaned it to)

Looking forward to seeing more comics from you^^
(And monsters, we seem to share a love for mythological creatures and cute/ugly things ^^)

Hey, hope things are going well for you. I was just curious if you knew the status of Downgrade and if it will ever be completed? Thanks!
