Working on something big! I plan to post it here but I’m still experimenting on how I’m gonna set things up. :-]
Sweet! I’ve been at comic making for over ten years on this site. My words of advice are...
1. Don’t make them too long
Trust me it’s easy to get burned out when each issue is a thirty-paneler.
I used to do them all the time which made me rest a long time before starting the next.
And putting limits on your art helps you to be more creative.
2. Add links in the description so your audience can navigate from page to page.
3. Make a playlist, it’s pretty self explanatory with one of those your audience can see your entire series in one place and they won’t have to sift through your art gallery.
4. Keep it consistent as possible even if it’s as loose as a comic a week people will forget about your comic fast if you make one every three months.
5.Don’t be afraid to take a break, and when you do; don’t forget to tell your audience.
It’s a fact, comics are hard work and good ol’ Mr.Writers block is always waiting around the corner. To get back inspiration I call it soaking up life, play games, watch movies, message friends, you know just live. Eventually the inspiration will come back on it’s own.
6. If in doubt sleep on it.
Not sure if a joke is funny? Put your page away forget all about it and come back the next day, if you laugh again success other wise back to the drawing board.
7.Don’t be afraid to make mistakes,
I have plenty of spelling, shading, and proportional errors in my strips but people enjoy them anyway.
That’s about all good luck.
