As a writer, my characterization and story structure are enough that I can boast of professional level! I mean it! I've also learned a thing or two about prose, drama and romance in novel-format.
As an artist, there have been no significant change to my art style. What has improved though is the speed at which I can create things. Lacking a pentab or photoshop, I've been doing nothing but traditional art as well. Also, I've gotten a little bit more used to creating comic panels and action lines, my major weakness during my time trying out OCT's.
To commemorate my return, I shall post a few pictures up and scout for a new OCT to join!
