Quackcast episode 400 is on the horizon and to help celebrate this awesome triple digit of a number, Oz and Banes want to know about your experience of being a webcomic creator and what the DD community means to you! So head on over to check it out!
I found DrunkDuck back when I was 14 years old, starry eyed and more than a little clueless. I had no idea how to make a website to host my comics (as bad as they were) and this seemed like a great way to start. DD was my first, and, since then, has been a very special part of my development into a somewhat more capable creator.
I remember the Wowio studio take over and decline, the power outages and lost archives (including my own comics) that meant we had to start over not to mention all the visual changes over the years. But it was here where I learnt how to colour comics, what screen resolution was and even had a comic that appeared on the front page at one stage (though competition was not as strong back then). I’ve had many projects fall and rise in that time but DD has alway been there.
At times, being a webcomic creator is hard. You often feel like Sisyphus, cursed to roll his boulder up a hill before it falls back down again. I’ve abandoned many a project, started a new one, let it go and hoped the next would have more follow through. DD never judged. Even during the busiest times of my life, I’ve come back to catch up on my favourite comics and I took comfort in the fact that even though my boulder was currently sitting at the bottom of the hill, others were still pushing theirs and that they were happy to tell me a story along the way.
I am a firm believer that the creators and the readers make the experience for others to enjoy and that has and always will be here. What has your experience been as a webcomic creator?
