I’m considering the fact that comic formatting style is different now that I’m thinking of getting back to my blaze comic again . Now people read from their mobile devices so when I start back up getting to change the way I display the comic is going to be tricky.
I should have known I would eventually encounter the problem of course. Comic format on the internet changes every five years almost but when I was younger I always held on to the fantasy that my comics would make it to print one day. I no longer hold on to that sort of fantasy I simply haven’t grown enough as an artist and I know what I never will be able to make the bounds and leaps that are necessary to be that successful of an artist . I simply enjoy writing and drawing comics and I finally know that about myself and am content with it.
Part of me wants to make a new comic entirely something gothic and vampire-like so that I can make a comic specifically for that format to practice …it would need to be short though.
When I was younger I did have a cheesy story that was about vampires but I had my friends reading it and hanging on to every word , especially my best friend Tay who still holds that story in her heart…
Maybe I could do a short comic on that? Omg it was so cheesy …but I could change things around and keep it short and simple. But then again let’s face it , short and simple has never been in my name. Once I start on something I try to weave something complicated out of it like I always have.
Maybe If I write a short story , then make a draft traditionally by the time I get my tablet all set up and get comfy with it maybe I’ll have a short gothic story I can attempt a new drawing style and format with. Can’t hurt right?
But still when I’m finished with that there’s STILL the question on the best way to turn a 180 on my comic blaze..
I think I have no choice. I must simply change the way it reads and then when I finally get far enough I’ll have to redraw the first chapter. Even though Ive aleady done that before…maybe three times since I was 17. Ive never been good about regular updates. The only way I can justify redoing the first chapter would be if I can get far enough with regular updates that I can do enough pages before they need to be published …Which means…
I would need to draw two pages a week or three , update that week only once for a couple of months and then use one of those regular sessions to go back and start over?
Maybe I’m overcomplicating things.
I think i should definitely start out with a short gothic style comic and use SketchUp and filters for backgrounds . I can do the comic in black and white .
