I reply to every comment. At first I didn't, but after some commenting on other people's comics I realized it's pretty cool to be acknowledged by the author and interact with them, even if it's just a simple, short thing. Granted, sometimes it's extremely hard to reply. I've spent more time than I'm confortable admitting trying to figure out some answers.

Tenmesh, Queen of Rage, Archdemon of the Yomi Plane:
Even though I'm using bits and pieces from several games on her, I like to think it's a somewhat original design.

@WanderingJew
[spoiler]Well you take the cake as the strangest case I've ever heard of! You're not supposed to be able to move you know, much less hit "it". Makes me wonder who's actually being tormented here. You have traits and attitudes rarely seen in people who experience these, if ever. It would be interesting to confirm you actually move and talk, instead of just perceiving it. It doesn't matter much in a practical sense though.

Names are not important, but these things seem to feed on fear, not lust, so what you're seeing makes sense. Otherwise it wouldn't really be a problem at all, would it? At any rate, sounds like you'll be fine.[/spoiler]

For anyone not too familiar with sleep paralysis, I'd recommend the documentary called "The Nightmare". Good luck with that though, it's probably the scariest thing I've ever seen.

@WanderingJew: [spoiler]You're kind of lucky and unlucky at the same time. I have a friend who's been suffering pretty devastating sleep paralysis for the past 15 years. It's literally killing him. He gets it 2-3 times a week, but he doesn't see anything. Just feels a menacing presence. He says the fear it makes him feel is so intense, it's not like he's going to die... it's like he's just been killed.

I find it interesting that you sort of worship the entity that torments you. First thing that came into my mind is that it probably appeases it. Don't be fooled thinking it's just your imagination, though. It's not.

My friend has had this so many times he has developed the skill to actually talk (in a very weird voice with barely any air to work with) while he's having them. Originally to get his girlfriend to wake him up. He's a stubborn one, and probably one of the few people in the world who can do this. It's a bit odd though, he does perceive his surroundings and can talk, but he can't remember most of what happens during the paralysis itself, or what he said.

Recently, he found an app that records any sound outbursts you make at night, clearly something designed by someone who has this problem too. I've heard his recordings, they're incredibly disturbing. At any rate, he recorded something quite interesting not too long ago: after what sounds like a conversation, he says "greetings from the ethereal, the ethereal, THE ETHEREAL!" in a very slow and deliberate way. Almost like he was being forced to. It has happened twice as far as I know.

These things are smart enough to know they're under surveillance.[/spoiler]

I think I'm a lucky one. I've had a ton of these experiences. Let me share with you a few significant ones.
Believe it or not, these all happened.

Carmen
[spoiler]My parents bought a house previously owned by a what the neighbours described as a "witch". Basically just a lone woman who read Tarot cards and held strange rituals with candles and a white robe some nights. The interesting bit is that her name was the same as my small sister. That became relevant when some years after moving in she started having weird experiences. At first it was just a very creepy voice that she recorded by accident playing the guitar. I still have that around... "Do you want to fly?" Then, one night, she came into my room panicked, convinced someone was calling her from the living room. After that she started sleeping with my mother in another room.

A week after that, I go to bed and start to hear a strange hum in my ear. The hum slowly but surely gets not only louder, but more clear. It's someone calling my name. Up to the point it's a shout in my head... over and over. I panic, turn the lights on, and say out loud "I'm not who you're looking for... she's on the other side of the house". I was 14 years old, cut me some slack. Still, not my proudest moment. Anyway a few seconds later I heard a blood chilling shout from the room my mother and sister where sleeping in. My sis had entered a state that could easily be described as "possesed". I will never forget how my mother was flailing her arms around her, in shock, trying to dispel whatever it was that had a hold on her.

The event lasted for something like an hour. My sisters pulse was so high my parents feared for her life. She talked too, her eyes vacant. She kept describing this woman that was in front of her, beckoning. At one point, she told us grandpa had come and started talking to the woman. He made her leave. Then grandpa showed my sister a drawing she had made some years ago and left. Shortly after that, it all ended. My mother started crying uncontrollably. Turns out she put that picture on my grandpa when they buried him. Nobody knew but her.

My sister forgot everything about that night for seven years. She now remembers some of it, but vaguely.[/spoiler]

The Runner
[spoiler]When I was 18 I started working in one of my father's companies. Warehouse stuff. It was draining. At the time I was also lifting weights like a madman and had a bit of a short fuse so to speak. One day, I returned home after work. I was still living at my parent's house. Oddly, nobody was home. The computer was in a common room, so I threw my shoes away and sat at it.

I was completely concentrated on my early internet slow as hell browsing when I felt I was being watched. The feeling was so strong it completely burst my bubble so to speak. I knew nobody was home, and well... I was already quite familiar with the strange events that happened at this house from time to time. But I had no patience for "them" this time around. I got up a loudly yelled at the nothingness. "Fuck off, leave me the fuck alone!! Fuck you all!" in hindsight, not a smart move.

My parents house has 2 floors, and I was on the lower one. Right after I yelled, I clearly heard heavy footsteps above me, as if someone started running accross the top floor, coming straight at (over) me. Thing is, I was mad. But all that rage energy just vanished in an instant. I had enough strength to close the door to the room I was in and grab a phone to call my sister. It really freaked me out.

Some years later I was living elsewhere and dropped by to visit. During a chat with my mother, we started talking about ghosts and stuff. She then told me about an incident that happened some months before. Both my parents, my sister and her boyfriend where watching a movie on the lower floor when suddenly they started hearing some heavy, loud footsteps on the upper one, as if someone was running all around. They were so scared they called the police. My father and the boyfriend went upstairs to check for intruders. They found nothing. No evidence of any doors or windows having been opened. After she described what they heard, it was clear to me who that was.

I call it "the runner".[/spoiler]

Grandma
[spoiler]During my twentys I lived alone in an apartment. I became addicted to World of Warcraft and rarely went outside. It got pretty bad.
My grandmother died. She had been senile for years and I hadn't seen her in a while. I was a troubled young man back then. To me, it was more important to get a "perdition's blade" drop that weekend than to attend her funeral. So I didn't.

Some days after, I went to bed after I finished another exhausting online session. I was very tired and wasn't really thinking about anything. I would have been asleep in seconds, but suddenly, I opened my right eyelid in a very weird way, completely. Almost as if I didn't actually do it myself. And there it was. A bright, orangy-golden light floating above my bed, in a corner. Strange flows kept swirling in and around it. I looked right into the light, and I saw my grandma's face. Not literally, but in my mind. It's hard to describe. I instantly knew it was her, with no room for doubt. I got so scared I closed my eyes and stayed under the blanket for a full hour, begging forgiveness.[/spoiler]

Listen to Youtube videos mostly, sometimes podcasts. My favourite go-tos are Two Best Friends, Red Letter Media, Critical Role and Game Grumps. When I'm writing dialogue though, it has to be music. I'm big into synthwave and future funk lately.

Best: The Action. Judging by the feedback I think this is the most enjoyed aspect of my comic. They're the hardest scenes to make but I have a lot of fun with them too.

Worst: The Dialogue. As much as I love the english language I will never be a native speaker. This limits me greatly.

I tried to be as realistic as possible when designing Minerva, one of my comic's protagonist, but I just couldn't resist being... "generous" in one particular department. It seems to be a rather important one, because I have never seen a real woman with this much muscle mass possesing such attributes. Still, I run a fantasy comic, and all men must dream :P

Long worldbuilding exposition will kill me almost every time.
Slow burners. If you got nothing in 20 pages, I'm out. Life's short.

First one, hands down! It impressed me to the point I felt completely indifferent about the second one.

I have this problem very frequently too. Although the software I use isn't nearly as complex as your pro 3D posers programs, it's still a huge pain since lightning has to be re-set manually and photoshop filters reapplied for every shot. I can't do much about it, even as a modder myself I rely heavily on other people's releases, and a good friend "tailor" of mine who works at his pace. If something new is avaliable and is more fitting for a character or a scene, I have to go with it.

My personal limit is, of course, published pages. If it's already published then it's set in stone. If it's still in the warehouse, so to speak, it's fair game.

I'd say you just have to live with it. And in a way, consider yourself lucky since you're actually able to correct something you would have regretted in the long run. Yeah the extra work sucks, but being stuck with a bad choice is even worse.

Welp, I'd say your mind and creativity are already in another place judging by what you wrote, so there's no real point in forcing yourself to finish a project you don't feel motivated about. Yup, I've been there myself. My current series almost started about a year ago under another format. I even shot most of the first episode. In the end I decided to focus on another ongoing project and that turned out pretty well.

My advice to you would be "do what you want". Always and in all fields, but particularly in creative works. There's no such thing as wasted time in doing these, you most definitely learned from it and produced something of value. And there's no telling if you might actually return to it reinvigorated or could potentially start a much better thing.

junoro:The Adventures of Buckeye and Turbo wins the oscar for "Best Female Lead With an Eyepatch"!

Damn, I cant believe I lost! Please tell me we're having a Warren Beatty situation here... :_(

Jokes aside, I think BoTH could certainly sweep the floor in the "most brazen use of game assets" category ^^'

Tibbittz:Non-action scenes are a fun challenge to keep exciting to look at.


Couldn't agree more. For an action comic I find they're extremely important, kind of like seasoning to food... it enhaces the flavor greatly. As good as your action scenes are, they will be lacking if not surrounded by a proper context and driven by fleshed-out characters.

Excited would be more appropiate in my case. Nervous as in fearing mistakes, not so much. The format here makes it so easy to edit pages on the fly. I used to publish whole chapters at a time, and that always had me worried about typos. And as in fearing a negative reaction from the readers... sometimes, but it's rare.

Only been around here for about two months, but let put my 2 cents in.

I don't think subs are all that important. Sure, it is indeed a measurement of how liked your work is by this community. That can't be denied. But I imagine many people came here for the hosting and had some sort of previous following. In the short time I've been here, I've begun to get a vibe of what is liked or disliked here, and it's certainly particular. That is fine, but not all works will fit that spectrum, regardless of their quality.

Personally, I've seen works in single or double digits that were more appealling to me than others in the hundreds. Of course, the latter always have some sort of cool factor that makes it easy to understand how it got so popular.. and many are just simply stunning.

I pay closer attention to visitors/pages viewed. Quick math will tell you how well you're doing there with your average reader. Access statistics also seem pretty essential. At the end of the day, what we all want is people reading our works. Sub count is just another form of site reputation.

As a sidenote, I would like to say that I find this community to be sort of a paradise for comic creators. Sensible, polite and positive feedback is a rarity in the community I come from, even for the most succesful works. It is very appreciated. Also, the average quality of the artwork and storytelling is quite humbling. I'm really enjoying my stay here, and learning a lot at the same time.
