As I was gathering all my thoughts into one place and begin the process of distilling them into something worthwhile, I deleted all the fun pictures of anime girls and removed inane remarks. This made my pre-first draft seem so dull and dry that I feel the need to add commentary pictures back in again. Since I wanted to use pictures that I would never have issues with, I made a decision to create my own.
The image above is one I created a few years back, detailing the process in two steps. The third step, obviously, is to then import the images onto a background that I have created for the purpose, whatever that purpose may be.
The image below, I created from a basic pencil drawing I doodled on one morning while eating my cereal.
Now, this all sounds as if it would be a great idea, except that it takes me awhile to make the pictures. I start with pencil sketches, then import them into either Photoshop or Illustrator, depending on what I am trying to do, and continue the drawing and painting process there. It truly is a process, and this will add much more time to the final draft, time that could be more wisely spent refining the written work.
I am wondering if this is something that makes sense to do. I invite all comments and thoughts on this.
