I made my Youtube debut in a Draw Fight competition. My mouth is very active when I draw (you'll have to watch the video to understand). Please consider voting for my version of Batman! Thanks, JP a.k.a. Chilphil
If possible place your dialogue down on the page first before drawing, or have a very good idea how much space the dialogue bubbles will take. There were pages I spent a lot of time drawing background details only to have it covered up with character dialogue.
I understand your situation. It is tempting to place everything you have out there. I'm excited with some of my future updates and want to share it with my readers immediately. I have found a lot of benefits to keeping a buffer. Like you said, if you release everything there may be weeks before you replenish and it frees you up to put up a quality product. A buffer helps me when life gets too crazy/busy/hectic to work on my comic. Also, it allows me to work on other side projects as well.
It appears that Best-Webcomics.com site has ended it's run. I received their tweet, "My fellow webcomic friends, it is with regret to inform you that this is the end of Best Webcomics. We had a lot of fun setting this up but due to reasons beyond our control, we are not able to continue our work." I don't have more details beyond that.
I liked the site. It would occasionally spotlight my comic and I'd get a little bump in traffic or a new Twitter follower. I also had an interview regarding my webcomic posted there. I'd check out other webcomics they highlighted there.
Anyway, I wanted to share the news in case anyone out there don't see it functioning.
Pat my back, because I read your post.
If I could, I'd pat your back too.
Life has given you so much tough stuff.
I just wanted to let you know I'm a fan of your comic, and I enjoy reading it.
I hope things turn around for you in your life.
I hope you have a great time here at Comicfury.
I drove up to Michigan earlier this month from Texas. I did some mountain biking and visited some folks, playing Texas Hold em. I also walked around Michigan State University campus, which is very beautiful.
It is so nice to have you join us. Ooo, 3D artist. What program do you use? I am just now trying to learn Blender. The learning curve is very steep. I love cycling but here in Houston, TX it is summer so it is way too hot this month. I have one wonderful dog.
I followed your story the previous version and the reboot. I felt I had a grasp of the storyline and thought as the story progressed I'd learn more about the unique, different world you were creating.
The art for the comic was great. It fit the story.
There were times I wanted to quit or reboot my long story version webcomic. At times I took long breaks. Eventually, I finished the story. I look back and see a lot of changes I'd like to make to it but don't know if I ever will. The thought of redrawing previous pages doesn't excite me.
I can't say whether you should reboot, quit, or keep going. I can only say I enjoyed following your comic, and regard you as a talented artist.
