You might have probably noticed my online inactivity, and I believe I have mentioned it several times that I’m working on some projects. One major project, and two solo projects.
I managed to finish those solo projects, and just this August 2nd, I have released my first original comic.
On the left is my original comic, and on the right is the Bleach doujin… or more like a compilation of the stuff I posted in my other art blog plus more, lol.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to release the doujin on Indieket, the comic con event last August 2, due to lack of funds for printing. But I’m looking at the option of selling it online too.
The purpose of this project and why a gag comic was just to see if I’m fit to be a comic artist or not. Because: 1.) Comic-making is a tedious task. I wanna know how serious or far I can go with a gag comic 2.) I want to take a shot in this while I’m still
in the population of worthless trash in society a.k.a. unemployed self-employed. Let’s just say that this was also a gamble because I had to do everything on my own: art, story, layouting, funding for printing, binding, editing etc. And I literally had to gamble what little funds I have. Luckily, I have a few friends who took their time to critique my work. At one point, when I was almost done with the manuscript, I ripped more than half of it because as one of my friends said, it was boring and that I can do better than that. Taking his suggestions into account, I re-did all those missing parts.
I put the emphasis on INDEPENDENT on independent comic artist.
This was actually my second time attending this con, and my first time as an exhibitor/participant.
Our table earlier during the event…
…and near the end of the event
During the course of this project, I learned a few things:
Even if I didn’t sell that much… hey, it’s still an accomplishment. And yes, a learning process, too.
And if you think this is over now… Well, it’s not. Soooo yeah… No rest for the Maou… XD
To those who wish to pursue this path professionally, whether it’s a doujin or an original work, and regardless of your preferred medium, comic-making is a tedious work. No, I’m not threatening you, I’m just stating a fact. It’s also a gamble. You’ll never really know if it’s a hit or miss because of the audience. My advice to you is… Research, ask for critiques, practice, experiment, research some more, observe, and don’t be afraid to take risks. By deciding to take the path of a professional comic artist, you are already in a gamble. There are already risks. So don’t be afraid to try and make errors. Even professional comic/manga artists make mistakes. And their works wouldn’t be how they are right now if they didn’t undergo this trial by fire.
Disclaimer: I am not a professional comic artist and I still have waaaaaaaayyyys to go before I become a pro, haha! ;u;--------
