This week I finished inking my webcomic up until the point where the ending can go two ways. I'm going to print them out and give copies to some people who read that genre and ask them which ending they like better. It's so exciting and satisfying to have them all inked and cleaned up! I finally feel like this is what I'm supposed to be doing in life! I'm just angry that I didn't figure this out decades ago.
I scanned the drawings into the computer and realized that I still have to add the text balloons to the panels! I forgot how to do a lot of things in Clip Studio Paint, so I spent a couple of days watching tutorials and taking notes. Of course, it never goes as smoothly as the person in the video so I had to figure out a lot of stuff on my own. Frustrating, but so exciting to learn how to do new things in the program!
There are things in daily life that seem to give you clues as to which path you should be taking. I've been planning on posting my webcomic on Line Webtoon which is the number one webcomics site right now. It's very big in the Asian community since it is an Asian based company. It was my belief that mainly young women read comics on that site because their comics are heavily romance/comedy driven. This week a guy in his 20s told me that he reads comics on that site every day. I guess in college they are not allowed to listen to music or watch videos on the school computer, so he reads comics instead. Wow, there must be hundreds of college kids doing the same thing. That's promising! It reinforces my idea of posting my webcomic there.
Oprah has a podcast called Super Soul. I listened to a couple of episodes which were inspirational. It made me excited to keep doing comics. I have so many stories I want to get on paper!
The problem I have is that I tend to go off on a tangent. Instead of working on stories I already have ideas for, I tend to work on new stories and ideas I have no endings for. I must subconsciously be listening to that "angel" on my shoulder that's saying, "Give yourself a challenge! Make your life harder!"
I took my dogs out for a "10 minute" walk which turned out to be 45 minutes because I was training my dog, Bumi, not to pull on the leash and go after anything that moves. I was happy that we actually made some progress! I fell and skinned my knees like a school child, but hey, we spent some quality time together and the dogs loved me more afterward.
I read a Moomin comic this week that my husband and I can relate to as we are trying to eat more vegetarian. Maybe you can relate to it, too. Have a good weekend!
What are you celebrating?
