I mentioned before, webcomic artists that improved "on the job" and I thought of a few examples that I would care to share with you in this regard.
First, I mentioned Jeph Jacques of Questionable Content who started off pretty badly in his webcomic but did that stop him? No! He pressed on (probably because he had a story to tell) and continued to practice his craft to the point where his art stopped sucking and he got pretty damned good, if you ask me.
Next, we have Allison Bechdel and anyone who has seen her early work (on Dykes to Watch Out For) and her latest work in the introduction of her Omnibus (The Essential Dykes to Watch Out For) and her illustrated autobiography (Fun Home, A Family Tragicomic) knows for sure that there are definite improvements in her technique. Even just picking up the Omnibus I mentioned above and looking at her first comics in that book and then turning more towards the back of the book, one can see more definite improvements.
One thing I am going to mention though is that I am changing my major and school of intended transfer. I intend to transfer over to RMCAD once I finish up at CCD and then earn my BA in Animation. So, I had better start working on accumulating a shit load of scholarships and grants so I can get into RMCAD and be able to pay for it without racking up a crippling amount of debt.
