I understand that completely. When I feel like trying, I will usually sit and stare at my blank paper... wait a second, I marked a line 1 cm wide... then I'll stare some more, and the simple drawing will drag on into a couple-months project. I guess it's because I worry about the end result so much that I hesitate to the point I don't get anything done, but when I just let my hand and mind wander, then something actually worth looking at is produced.
And it works! Old school and powerful with none of this modern wangst [link] nonsense that so many superheros suffer from now days. You've made me nostalgic for the comics of my childhood when the Man Of Steel was larger than life
