Ready for failure.
I find myself pushing away from the desk when I fail at coloring a scene first try. For GOBLIN I'm pushing myself to fail repeatedly in our pitch to find a color style that doesn't rely on gray tones or color gimmicks to capture tone.
Twice yesterday while working on samples for Eric I almost gave in. But with a little help from his expert eye, we found I wasn't far off! Feeling my oats and sometimes the best way to learn how to do something you are hesitant to fail at, is to do 100+ pages of it.
Plus a bonus look at Eric's incredible logo!
