So I've been doing a lot of thinking into which comic I should do, Cans of Beans
(Carl & Dude) or A Violet for Master
(Violet, Marcellus, Ya Lian, Liam, etc.)?
I love both stories equally, but I feel somewhat morally obligated to do A Violet for Master
since it's been the project I've been fleshing out for 3+ years. I'm on the brink of getting the story for AVfM finished, but for the last 2 weeks, I've been thinking of nothing but Dude and Carl and their story, not to mention they're a hell of a lot more fun to draw. Actually, it only took 2 weeks to figure out their story.
My plan, at least so far, is to do some of the work for AVfM for my Animal Drawing class since the final project is free reign (as long as it includes animals), so I might as well work on the scene with horses in it. There may be a certain, um, animal in CoB, but I don't really feel like making CoB a school-based project.
So guys, which story do you prefer I do? AVfM is a much, much longer story that I anticipate will take at least 3 years to draw, if not more. CoB is a lot more improvisational, but I'm not quite sure how long it will be, but it probably may take 1 year to complete.
Working on both at the same time might be suicide, FYI.Cans of Beans
