"Shadowed out; nudity?", 17th Oct 2019, 5:55 AM #1

Finished my next page and wondering if I should change the advisory tags. It's tagged for sexual content, but in my pages I have a character nude, but her hair covers her up. I also have nudity that's shadowed out, the vague outline of the bodies, but all dark. Would this qualify for a nudity tag, or just sexual content? I'm not too sure, to be honest.

Kiss: William, sounds like a good guy but not very reliable and might not be independent enough because he's rich
Marry: Jared sounds like husband-material and I like candy
Kill: Fautus purely because I don't like shoplifters

Tbh, if you're tracing for anatomy reasons, then there shouldn't be a problem. It would be a problem if you were just copying exactly what you were referencing and passing it off as your own. I have to use a lot of references and trace for anatomy, but then I also build up my own characters on the bare body

The booth was a success. I was very nervous about it but everyone there was nice and helpful. I ended up selling 2 books, 10 buttons, and 2 prints, and a lot of people took the free promo cards I had with my comic url on it and asked for my social media.

Note: always make and bring business cards with you...!!!

They said they do 4-5 events a year and invited me to show up at a charity event for children in June and probably won't make any money, but I can show kids my art and stuff :)

Buttons seem to sell the most, everyone likes them. I had them $1/each or 3/$2.

Idk where else to put this where people don't really know who I am, but my work life has been kinda crappy since last week. I've been with this company for 6 years, I still remember being unemployed when I first started my comics on here. I moved up from being a floor person to being a supervisor within 2 years, so for the past 4 years I've been a supervisor. It was pretty amazing because I went from being a nobody, with no college education or real work experience, to someone who could be in charge of a store. I started my retirement fund with them, got insurance, fulltume, etc.

Well, last week the company announced huge budget cuts and hours became decimated. They said my position was in jeopardy, and we had 10 days to decide if we wanted to leave or stay, and I freaked out. I can't pay bills with less than 40 hours a week. The next day they took back what they said, and said my position wouldn't be affected, but everyone who heard the news initially is skeptical. What the company wants to do is make supervisors into cashiers and only have one person working at a time. Note, this is a multi-billion dollar company and we have a pharmacy, and constantly have lines of people.

It's just not realistic. I feel like the company is going to go bankrupt. I ended up applying with another company and they called me for an interview two days later, and I'm having my second interview with them on Wednesday. I never wanted to leave my original company but I don't feel like I have a choice. I'm just hoping this new company won't make stupid decisions and leave most of their employees without jobs.

Too bad I can't just make money off of my comics and not worry about companies going under, huh?

I put up comics on queue for most of May, so even if I take a break from working on pages, there will still be updates. I've had a lot going on in my professional life

If you enjoy doing art, never ever quit. Do it for yourself, not other people. You should enjoy your hobbies just for yourself, and it's a plus if other people happen to like what you do. Try not to be too hard on yourself, every artist will always feel like they're not good enough, that's just how it is. It's okay if you don't finish projects or have a huge audience, especially if it's something you like doing. Everyone has projects they haven't completed, you're not expected to finish if you're not able to. Just remember to do it for yourself. If you love what you do, other people will, too.

Merged Doublepost:

Matt Comics:the graph in your comic statistics tracks unique visitors every day, even if they already checked your site before.

for example, if the same bunch of 20 people check your comic every day, they will count as 20 visitors every day despite not being new readers, and they will also be added to the total number of visitors every day. (which means we actually get less unique visitors than what the total number implies, btw, simply because some readers actually come back)

you also count as one (1) daily visitor if you visit your own comic.

That was pretty much the answer I needed, lmao. Thank you. Today I have 38 visitors and 1291 views, so I guess each visitor is clicking a lot of pages

(Wasn't sure where to post this thread)

Do the visitor statistics for the day count for every visitor to your site, or are they for every unique/new visitor?

Example: You have 900 views, but 30 visitors. Are those 30 people refreshing/clicking around your site 900 times? or are they previous visitors and there are 30 new people going to your site?

I've always wondered about this, but only thought now to see if anyone knows, lol.

Thanks for all the replies! I'm planning on bringing some prints and buttons that I already have made. I'm going to print out a few pages of my comic to give out as a freebie for people to read it, and have links to the website on them. One of my friends suggested I make some 4-panel comedy comics to be exclusives, so I think I'll do those, too.

@Eaton Pye that's a good idea! I'll go over plans with my friend so we can have an awesome booth :D
"Getting a free booth at a small convention", 7th Apr 2019, 8:04 PM #11

In May the city near me is having a Free Comic Book Day convention and the comic book shop owner there said that he wants local artists to have booths to advertise and sell their comics, and offered one to me. I want to go do it so I can get more readers for my comic. I don't have a book because I only have chapter one finished, but I want to stick with small cheap stuff to entice people, especially since it's for *Free* Comic Book Day.

What type of things should I make/bring to get peoples attention?

I would most likely get very upset and not touch it for years, and then possibly start it again. I don't take well to losing progress and having to start all the way over.

She seemed to have quite the bubbly personality, so I had her do a kawaii anime girl pose. Nothing changed too drastically, other than the black inking and screentones added in place of color. Hopefully I did the character justice.

Working on your character now, you're actually the final request, LOL. I'm surprised the thread giving out free fanart got such little attention, lol.

Oh well, my final piece before this thread is done, I suppose I shouldn't complain, lol.

Aaaa, I didn't see this! Thank you!! She looks great! :D I still need to do one for you ><

I had my baby in December 2017. He's my first, and he's amazing. He's pretty independent for the most part but he likes just being with me while I work on my projects or watch movies/play games. He likes erasing my pencil lines on paper though, haha.

I get hyped when something big happens or when there's a page I worked really hard on. Luckily my story is easy to draw going forward because I've been working on the story for years, haha.

I use Patreon mostly because it's a brand that people know and trust. It's already been established as a secure platform for pledging to creators and the owners of Patreon have your back if the creator doesn't deliver.

When you're reading a new comic, how many pages does it take for you to want to read more?

Usually depression makes me unable to do anything, and drawing seems impossible. If I'm stressed out or unhappy at home, it makes me not able to work on anything.

I don't know why people get upset over an artist drawing nudity... unless it's like, child porn or rape.
