100%, without a doubt, Kingdom Hearts.

I think the themes would work really well with my comic's world and there would be a lot of fun interactions to be had!

I used to be team coffee until I got a bunch of digestive issues and it became hard for me to drink it all the time. :(


Now I drink green tea most of the time for caffeine needs!

Some advice for this:

-Gun powder green tea is the best. It's got more flavor and just is a more pleasant tea drinking experience.
-Make sure when you steep it in the water, you only do so for about 5 minutes or it will get really bitter. ><
-Don't make the water too hot! This can burn the leaves and hurt the flavor.



As for Coffee. I still drink it occasionally for bad days or recreational fun time days. My favorite tummy friendly mix is a light roast with honey and almond milk. Hemp milk is also pretty good too but it's harder to find. I've also heard great things about oat milk? but I haven't tried it.

Make a whole chapter first, and queue it.

Then, if you don't finish before the queue ends, at least a chapter is up and done, so it doesn't feel weird for there to be downtime.... :'D

At least... That's what I'm trying now.



In the end, it's more of a "what works for you" type thing. I'm trying the above method because keeping up a page per week stressed me out too much. Felt like homework when I have other things to worry about already. Like a day job, self-care, groceries, chores, and taxes.

Thank you guys so much for your kind words and reassurances! I'm sorry I didn't get around to replying yesterday, I wasn't feeling very good yesterday and didn't want to push myself too hard.

@Dyohna

That's a very good point! ^^/
Part of the inspiration behind doing this comic came from SFW works that included furry characters. (Neopets, Undertale, Sherlock Hound, ect.) I guess I should start thinking about those when I start to get disheartened liked this... ;w;/

And thank you! I'm glad you like my style! ^^/ Your art is really nice too! Very cute and soft.


@J-son

That's fair about the age thing! I do remember when it was around 2008 or so when people seemed a lot more mean about hating on furries. I imagine younger kids might find that old stuff and think it's cool to do or something... As life goes, I suppose...?

And haha. |D Yeah, I've seen people like that.



@E-hero Vulven

Thank you. ;;/ I will continue to do the same, honestly. I'm happier drawing my passions than being pressured to draw what's popular for money. Even if it means a day job. (Which is fine with me, honestly! Being bored at work is motivation to make something fun at home!)

@NiaNook

Ah! thank you! ;o;/

I'm glad to hear that's the first impression it gave! ^^ (And that you think my art is pretty! ;w;/ )



@lirvilas

Haha. If that were true, furries would haaaaate the message and tone of my comic. "|D

I've considered that! ^^/

I kinda want to get more pages out first before I go that route, though. Just so people have something to actually read!

Anyway, thank you... I appreciate the motivational reality check. I definitely plan to keep going.

I think either decision is fine.

But I do agree with ArgyleFox that you shouldn't make a habit of restarting if that's what you decide to do and that you do need to plan a LOT.

I suggest you plan out your entire rough story outline then the rough outlines of all the chapters. That way you have goals in sight, and the story doesn't feel like a never-ending void. (I'd even suggest planning how many pages a chapter would take)

I don’t usually post around here, because I’m terribly shy... But I want to voice a concern of mine that resurfaced lately…

And that’s… Furry stigma. (DUN DUN DUUUUUN!!!)

But in all seriousness, I am worried about it. My comic has characters that are ALL furries, and I’m worried that people will see it and think “Oh, this comic has furries, it is gonna be NSFW" and leave with out giving it a chance...

And Furries are pretty guilty of this stigma too. Do not get me wrong, people can draw what ever they want as long as it isn’t or can’t be used to hurt another person. But there is a constant pressure in the fandom that “you won’t get anywhere or accomplish anything unless you draw porn”. And people WILL go to SFW artists and tell them this. And that can be really telling to outsiders, especially when a SFW artist opens up NSFW commissions because “they have to”. (Damn, I’ve even considered it in the past, and like… NSFW art makes me really uncomfortable to draw…)

My comic will be SFW and have furries and I don’t plan to change that for anyone. I have stifled my work in the past to fit what would be more “popular” and ended up burning out fast and I’m not doing that again. But it does still kinda hurt…

- - - -

So yeah, TDLR: I’m worried people will think my comic is NSFW because the characters are furries and not give it a chance, OR ignore it because it’s NOT NSFW and has furries and that’s not “popular” or whatever…

mightguy15:LOL I love your enthusiasm, but i dont know about that one. Something thats a fusion of two completely different animals... almost sounds like nightmare fuel.


Hey now!

My little Chimeran Critters would beg to differ!


Anyway, it seems I've missed the main furry discussion here, so as someone who's chapter 2 involves drawing a number of very amphibious and froggy individuals, I bid you the best of luck in your endeavors!

(One thing I can suggest is that you mentioned powers from dragons. With frogs being much closer to reptiles than bunny rabbits, you could probably get away with some neat design choices there if you wanted. >w</ I definitely agree with checking out poisonous frogs for patterns and such too!)

Oooh, nice! I love the comedy and style of your page! It reminds me of old newspaper comics, and definitely looks like something that could be published in a big name newspaper. ^^ Very nostalgic!

Oof... Sorry to hear it.

I'm in a similar situation right now where I really need to find a job by next month or I'm in some hot water. I'd recommend looking into Temp Agencies and applying to several if you can. Explain your situation to them and they can help find you a job.

What's the youtube channel? I wouldn't mind watching!

I don't think my comic is really ready for review yet, sadly. It's still kinda in webcomic infancy. ;v;/

Hello! I am AK! I've been on comic fury for a long time, but I kinda stopped being here for a long time too.

I came here when I started a comic I wrote in high school, and now I'm starting a new comic I've written in my adult life, taking everything I've learned from the previous comic endeavors and hopefully making something I can actually finish and not be burned out on this time... Hopefully...

If anything, it will be cute. u_u/


Anyway! Nice to meet you! Hope you are having a good day!
