I can see the positives of both. On one side, a higher quality art, means that you are pushing your abilities and becoming a better artist every day. On the other, simplified art, allows for a better communication with your audience. It allows you to update more frequently, and to give more content to the community.
It's hard to tell where I land on the subject sometimes. Because I want nothing more than to update frequently, and have a lot of topics I'd like to cover. But I have a hard time posting something, if it is not shaded, and well lit... I need smooth crisp lines, and bold coloring. And every week I try something new. Rim lighting with weird saturations and lighting effects. Different line weights. Generally trying stuff out, and learning a lot in the process. I don't know if I would learn nearly as much if I were to stop short at the color flatting process, and lean on simplified lineart.
The speed at which I work has increased dramatically as well. And perhaps sooner or later, I will be able to do both.
I am not speaking anything negatively of those who choose to use the other method of course. I love what some of those artists do, and I am by no means intending to speak negatively of their work. Because in some cases, I am a true fan.
What I am saying is, that is probably not for me. As silly as it may seem... This comic allows me to learn digital art from the ground up, and grow as an artist in a format I am only now learning. Would it be simpler for me to do all of my lineart in micron pen and copic marker... Definitely. Would it look good? I guarantee it. That is my bread and butter. Would I grow as an artist doing that? Without a doubt, but not as rapidly as doing different things, in different methods.
First and foremost, I want to give people something great to look at, and something funny to think about.
I truly hope that people enjoy it.
