I'm currently waiting for death. Hopefully it won't be for a while. But, it's bound to happen one day.

It looks like something a professional would put out. It's not the kind of style I particularly like, but I can tell it is top notch work.

It depends how old he or she is. I will be more likely to give it to an older elderly person than a young person. Because when I talked to older people they seem to have a harder time finding jobs (any type of jobs even when they are more skilled.) I know this is not always the case but I've actually seen it happen. so what do you do if you cant physically do the job at the pace most employers want you to, but are not technically handicapped or old enough to get government money? begging might be your only option.

YOU: I had slow experiences with doing commissions, my art isn't really worth the money
ME: so did I but after about 3 years of doing it part time I started getting more and more work and getting paid a little better.

YOU: I hate the idea of turning myself into a art prostitute drawing porn for money.
ME: Why would you have to draw porn? I have been doing freelance comics part time for the last 3 years and I have never had to draw porn, Not that that would be an issue for me, I just never got a commission to do porn. And if I didn't want to do a job, I would just not bid on it.

YOU: I don't commit to projects with one of the main killers is the projects being too great for my current skills to handle. I can't seem to think of anything simple without becoming a full blown project in itself.
ME: I feel the same way that's why I do freelance work so I can get better at it and get paid at the same time. the more you do the better you get... it just that simple. an other advantages is you learn to deal with people and take criticism where you don't blow up and tell the client off when he or she wants a silly change. Remember: the client is always right. You also learn to meet dead lines and take responsibility to finish the job in a timely manner.

YOU: And with rumors of the comic industries demise, I fucking highly doubt webcomics are gonna fill that void. Webcomics are niche and although webtoons have been gaining some popularity...idk. Maybe this downward spiral might affect them too...
ME: I don't understand how comics (including web-comics) make any money at all. But, they do and I still like buying and reading a comic every now and then. I doubt they will ever go away altogether. The problem is now a days you really have to be better at doing comics than 90% of the people out their.

YOU: I pretty much just gave the fuck up. Doing creative projects for money and attention not only wrecks your expectations but messes up your with head. Any sense of passion is taken away once you start thinking "will this make me a shit ton of money?" Comics are dead. Don't bother thinking about making money and think about what ever you want to commit to the idea.Trust me, you'll feel less shit for it.
ME: I don't make a lot of money doing comic for other people but I average about $500.00 a month now. when I first started I averaged about $30.00 a month so it has gotten better.

YOU Note: that doesn't mean it's hopeless just expect a uphill battle.
ME: of course. You are trying to do something fun and convenient(able to work at home) and also get paid for it. if it was easy everyone would do it(yeah, I know that was a bit cliche')

No, I would assume that it would be a bad idea to piss off your viewers.

No, and if it is I don't care. If I can find a quicker easier way to create something that looks like my own work I am going to do it.

@dougwarner59, when you say "reduce colors," do you mean posterization, which takes a picture and reduces the number of colors? That's under Edit > Tonal Correction > Posterization. Or are you thinking of a different color adjustment?


rcbirdy, No I did't mean posterization, even thought that feature does reduce color( I don't use it because it doesn't give the desired results.) also I didn't know that clip art studio could do posterization. the color reduction I am talking about is "indexed color mode" under the image tab or the cutout filter(which I use the most because of the time because of it's simplicity.)

for inking clip studio paint blows photoshop away. I won't ever ink in photoshop again. the only advantage I see that photoshop has is when you resize something it does not get blurry and you can transform and modifie fonts; also, Photoshop has a real useful feature(for me) where it allows you to reduce the colors of a image. I don't think you can do that with clip art studio. if it can let me know.

I would say the best time to launch a new comic is 30 or 40 years ago.

the characters look fine but the background is a little dark and might also need some saturation to help separate if from the characters better.

SupermarketCordyceps:I think part of the reason I have an aversion towards working in digital mediums is because I feel it often looks too clean. I guess that's why I prefer traditional media over it, seeing as I like stuff that has even minor imperfections.


That's funny, looking clean is one of the main reasons I like using digital other than it is so much quicker. when I do freelance work people complain about those minor imperfections so being clean is a plus.

I used to believe in that kind of stuff, but not anymore. There is no real evidence to prove any of it is true. I am not saying that it is not true...it could be, but I have not been give enough proof to believe it myself. If I am given reliable evidence. then I will go collect that million dollars some famous institution ( I forget the name) that will pay if the supernatural(magic) is scientifically proven to be real. (Note: it hasn't happened yet, obviously.)

As far as abortion goes I can see good reasons for and against abortion (well, excluding religious reasons.) But if I had to chose a side I would be in favor of pro choice, because to be honest I care far more about the women than the fetus.

Merged Doublepost:

mightguy15:Yeah, I know exactly what you mean. Especially when people get hyper combative, and try to find as many faults in your reasoning as they can. I actually really appreciated the correction, I was just getting defensive because I thought I offended you, even though maybe that wouldn't have been the right response either way.

I also very much appreciate the mature responses, and that goes to everyone in the thread too. It's awesome to be a part of a community that can think as critically as you guys can, and ended up learning new information too.


I really hope the less reasonable don't win though. I have hope this law will be undone, and it's refreshing to see that even Hollywood celebrities realize how unreasonably ignorant this law is.


I like how you handled that interaction. You could have been a dick, but you kept your cool. you gained my respect .

I am glad you asked me the second craziest thing that happened to me. because talking about the first craziest thing that happened to me could get me locked up in mental institution, or so they say.
the second craziest thing that happened to me was when I around 13. me and my dad were up late one night talking about stuff far above me while recording it on a tape recorder. My dad started talking about religion and God and he later said something like, " is there a Christmas?" and when we played it back it and elderly woman's voice said "tis is so there is a Christmas." Did this show me that Jesus and God is real? Don't know. because that was the last time that ever happened to me. I have asked God in the past and haven't heard anything form him so it's a mystery.

I have the ability to tell when people dislike me...But, I don't have the ability to make them like me so totally useless super power.
