Sounds like a good, strong plan! Good luck!
I think I with you! I really need to improve my art. I've been thinking more about how to do complete scenes and not just pin ups. I would truly love to focus on perspective and background work. I keep seeing fantastically AMAZING background scenes in anime that they flash for all of ONE SECOND and it's never seen again! But it's so good it sets the tone, so it all works. In that same vein I need to do some design work on a space station and some buildings for my story...and I need to finish my story. That's what I'm looking to do.
