I usually try to get it down to a process, so I'm not stressing out about it. My first version is an outline of events, then I go through and write the dialogue. Then I'll go through a rough story board where I break down the panels of each page and try to improve the writing. Last I'll draw the page and tweak the dialogue before showing it to my wife, who then lets me know if it works and if I've got any grammar problems.

So looking at that I revise 3 times.

I've had comics that have updated on everyday of the week and it seems pretty inconsistent. I agree that almost all established comics update on Monday, but I've had big bumps in traffic on days that are usually a lot more quiet (like Sunday). I think it's best if you're updating consistently on the same day, so people know when to go look for a new page. Good luck!

I'm all for the immortal part, but you never buy a car in it's initial model year. I'd have to let people perfect the technology before I'd be ready to jump into the fire. Plus, don't forget pets. I'd want my dog to be immortal too. XD

Sometimes I wonder, since I've gone bald if I'm having a good hair day or a bad hair day.

I guess not having to deal with hair styling every morning might tip it slightly into the "good" realm.

My god! Gardening at 69. I can barely garden for 10 minutes now, and let's just say I'm significantly younger than that. OOF!

Those chicken pot noodles must contain some pretty study stuff.

There's something wonderful about seeing your own comic in print, but I still offer the digital version at a large discount.

If they didn't charge the same amount for the digital version of new comics as print I might be inclined to make the switch. I just don't feel like it's fair to pay 4 bucks for digital comics because they don't really exist, because with a print comic it's at least worth something if you sell somewhere down the road. If they could go with a 99 cent comic price for digital, I think more people would see it as a viable alternative.

In a way, you're a victim of your own success. A full-time job, house, family (w/baby) and a popular web comic.

It's tough to juggle all these things, although I've certainly done it myself, but it's HARDEST with a baby. I know it seems tough, but it definitely gets a bit easier once they can hold there own bottle. XD

I think you just have to do what you can without getting burnt out.

Good luck and if you need to vent, you know where to PM me. XD

As much as I hate to give romantic advice, the best thing I ever did was get married to someone who supported my dream. If I hadn't done that, I would never be happy in the long run.

Good Luck my friend,
Stever

I love the 4 month idea, just because I think it's important for "popular overall" to reflect comics that are continuing to update.

Cheers!

A full page like you do usually takes me from about 6-8 hours, depending on the level of detail I need to put into the backgrounds. I usually tend to be on the cartoony side of things because I really don't want to loose the momentum of the story. If I spend more that 2 days on a page (16 hours) I start to really get bogged down by the workload.

I used to work full time in the summer at crappy retail jobs, so I could have money for when it was time for school and I could go part-time. I guess I felt that as long as the jobs were temporary I could get through it, but retail will take advantage anyway they can. It's tough to find a entry level job where you can make good money and be treated well. Sometimes it pays to learn to wait tables early on because you can make decent money for a part-time shift and you can go anywhere and work.

Good luck!

What inspires me to do fan art?

I wish I could make fan art all day, since I love so many comics, but every morning I get up and if I don't have an assignment and my web comic is caught up (doesn't happen all that often) then I grab some art board and see what I can draw. Usually after reading through my favs something will grab me and get me drawing. I especially like coming up with something that I can blend my characters in with the original comic and make some sort of gag with it.

Cheers!

Hiya,

I'm Stever and I'd be interested in working with a writer, depending on the overall nature of the project.

Check out my comics: Batty and Cork and Blotto for art style.

Even though you only have a few strips up, I actually did find Squiggle & Box quite amusing.

You can send me a PM if your interested in talking further.

Cheers!

I've added all the new people to my subscriptions and visited everyone's page, but I've noticed that we've got 32 members and I've got 32 subscriptions in my belfry account. My comic however, only has 21 people subscribed. That means that nearly a third of the people participating in this project aren't actually doing there part. I'm starting to realize why these types of community projects don't work.
