Episode 364 - JUST DO IT!

Mar 5, 2018

All the planning and set up in the world will never count for anything if you never start your webcomic, so just put your own to paper and begin! “Getting started on a webcomic” is what we chat about here. I was inspired by PitFace's newspost about a crappy horror film and how the creators just went for it. As a webcomicer that is what you HAVE to do! You can plan, research and gather resources for years, but the reality is that it just makes you more and more scared to take the plunge. You'll develop a LOT faster as a webcomicer if you throw caution to the wind and go for it. I'm not saying that research and planning are uneeded, it's just that most if it can be done while you're actually working. Do not worry about putting out a perfect piece of genius work from the getgo- your comic WILL get there regardless if you're dedicated and put the work in AS you work, but the first few pages or chapters don't have to be there. Your audience will appreciate the chance to grow with you a lot more than if you put out a polished gem to begin with. Starting out at a place like Drunk Duck is your best bet. It's a nurturing, easy to use, creator run platform, focussed around promoting webcomics. So what are you waiting for? This week Gunwallace has given us the theme to Flesh and Wires: Dirty and distorted electric guitar and determined fuzzy bass, weaving together over a haunting synthesized Melodica. Portentous and evocative, this music tells a story in it’s own runtime! The main riff reminds me a little of my fave part for We don’t Need Another Hero from Tina Turner.

Wow, I didn't my comic would get this much attention! Especially since it's the first time I actually really attempted to make one. Thanks a lot for making the awesome theme song for Flesh and Wires, I feel really honored.

It's very hard to continue a webcomic over the long term! This is more about actually starting it in the first place :D

I get why this pod case is talking about getting your comic done. I have this problem but not what you may think. my personal issue is Getting sleepy. At most, I'm pushing an hour or so. It sucks big time when i need to get things done. I'm always asking for extensions. I don't know if I'm bored or what but it does hinder my progress. listening to music helps and listen to DD's old podcase keeps me going. but after that.....I'm like done. Maybe I'm alone in this. Outside of this, I do agree with you all about getting things done and take feedback as a growing process. One of my drives in doing WebComics is reading the comments and forums here. I love my style and hate it at the same time. This can sometimes stop me from continuing a webcomic. The Only push I get is really doing a webcomic with someone else. Meaning, There is no longer a single drive that is pushing for the webcomic to publish. Sometimes you need that other person(s) to get things going.
