How do I keep myself from being so damn envious of your drawing talent and make piles money at the same time?

I know I miss biffboff. He always had something interesting and intelligent to say; Of course he would piss people off because none of us want's to lose and argument and that's exactly what would happen if you went up against him; and of course the only recourse you have is to report him or to wait for a moderator to come to your rescue. But, it was very entertaining before that happened.

I know the feeling; not being able to find a job...been there (and I had a BS degree in electronics.) Someone mentioned food stamps (Snap.) That was the first thing I did and I got around $200.00 a month. I think the same place I got food stamps had programs that help you find a job, but I never used them; still you have experience in fast food and retail I don't see why you couldn't find a job. I know the pay will suck but it's better than nothing. It's really hard to make money with art unless you get lucky. I only make about 200.00 a month off of art doing comics for this Christian comic that pays $50.00 a page, but they only need one page a week. That was a hard job to obtain; I was turned down the first time, but I wrote them back and said I would do the first couple of pages for free. the editor liked that I was willing to do that and gave me a shot; that was last year and I am still working for them. I got some freelance work from time to time but I would not count my lively hood on it. If you can draw short sci-fi stories you can make 60.00 at site called perihelion. they've took 4 of my comics in the past year and a half. But, you will probably have to wait a few months before that e-mag can find an opening for your work.

Wow, this post got kind of intense.

Personally I have done both traditional and digital. I mostly do digital now, because It, besides what other say, is so much faster and forgiving to errors, and if color is involved I can do the work in half the time. most of the time I do everything by hand "digitally"( I need to clarify the word "digitally" because saying, "doing it by hand" seems to imply doing it traditional...which is weird because I do all my digital stuff by hand.) Anyways, somethings I will use photos or 3D models especially for background, where I will go over them again with the brush or pen tool to make it into my style. 3D models and photos are such a time saver when doing background that I rarely draw (actually color) complected background anymore.

in summary I will do traditional if I am doing a rough draft of the comic; or maybe if I get good enough on day that my work is actually good enough to sell I may go traditional again; but to save time and money I will always use a computer because I am going to own a computer regardless of whether I do a comic or not, and a drawing tablet really is a inexpensive one time buy (actually a 5 to 10 year buy but it's still a relatively minor investment.) digital is (too me) simply faster and very forgiving.

perspective; everything else such as drawing things I am not familure with can be done using reference pictures which can be easily found on the internet.

As far as making a comic like a movie it really depends on what type of comic you are trying to make. a Sunday funny type comics would not really benefit from it. but, an action comic like bat-man or spider-man would be benefit greatly. When "I" say "like a movie" I mean from a directors point of view. You need different/ interesting camera angles to make the comic more entertaining. when I read a comic where the camera is facing in one direction and/or there are constant close ups of the people I get turned off really fast...well, unless the story is amazing; then basically you are reading a book with crappy illustrations that you can just ignore.

black and white, but my opinion is basically worthless so go with color because that's what the kids want these days.

My villain eats puppies and kittens for breakfast. And, that's not the worst part; he doesn't even like the taste of them; he eats them just to piss everyone off.

When someone says your story isn't very original what they are really saying is too many people are doing that type of story. Being original is a dream I gladly gave up years ago.

flesh eating potatoes, zombie cows, and talking rocks are things that don't appear in any of my comics. But, I wish I had the imagination to use them.

that's weird. did you try putting one of your hands on the tablet and draw with the other? maybe it's has something to do with the path through you and the pen.
