On Spoilers

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Aug. 17, 2019



So, full disclosure: I am spoiler immune.

I don't really care if I know how a story ends, or where the twist is. I might even enjoy it more as I anticipate it. I will watch the movie without issue and still enjoy it just as much.

Granted, when ...

What you love and what you hate about comics

Emma_Clare at 12:00AM, Aug. 16, 2019



Creating a webcomic is a multi-faceted endeavour. There are many moving parts from writing to drawing to managing social media accounts and everything in between. For me, there are some parts of the process I like and some which I really struggle to find motivation to do, particularly when life ...

The Weather as Prop

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Aug. 10, 2019



So the weather is very important. We all know that from our real life routine alone.

There is often a tendency, however, not to use it when it comes to the visual narrative that webcomics are. More often than not, the weather is basically perpetually clear. Daylight or moonlight are ...

When to ask for help

Emma_Clare at 12:00AM, Aug. 9, 2019



It’s very easy for us comic creators to find ourselves in a creative rut. We become so lost amongst the trees we can no longer see the forest. When this occurs it’s a great opportunity to look for feedback as a fresh pair of eyes can help elucidate ...

On Time Travel Yarns

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Aug. 3, 2019



Time travel is a narrative trap. It's quicksand.

It's very alluring to use, being able to put a person from one historical era into another and watch as shenanigans ensue, but very quickly, a writer (and often the audience too) discovers that it quickly unravels, and the story ...

Knowing when to end

Emma_Clare at 12:00AM, Aug. 2, 2019



When Stranger Things ended their first season I didn’t feel that there was a need to continue. The character’s had had their arcs come full circle, most loose ends were neatly tied and, despite the ending being left slightly ambiguous, for the most part, it was wrapped up ...

Writing alignment

Emma_Clare at 12:00AM, July 26, 2019



Some time ago I found this writer alignment chart on Twitter, (or maybe it was Facebook?). As a casual player of DnD I found this very amusing and began to spread the meme around and was pleasantly surprised by the results.

Myself? I am a True Plantser. Most of my ...

On Belief

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, July 20, 2019



So I watched Hacksaw Ridge the other day (okay it was yesterday) and it was impressive.

Not so much as a movie (though that was quite decent) but the story. The story was amazing.

It's about a man named Desmond Doss who enlists in the army during WWII to ...

When your art style changes

Emma_Clare at 12:00AM, July 19, 2019



Often webcomics are a long term endeavor spanning over multiple years. In that time it is inevitable that your art style and character designs will change. As an avid webcomic reader I saw my fair share of project restarted in an attempt to standardise the art direction and character designs ...

Getting Inspiration

Tantz_Aerine at 2:14AM, July 13, 2019



Inspiration is a flighty and whimsical thing. We don't know when we'll get it and sometimes we never do when we need it. Even others, we get it when we least need it, or when we can't use it. Or when we're sleeping, and lose it ...
