Awwww dangggg shush!! You’re making me blush! But seriously, if I can inspire you to draw again then I really couldn’t ask for more. That’s the best!
Heheheh yes! I am in the process of creating a weekly webcomic called Witchlette!, which will be updating soon (with any luck!) I also do random journal comics from time to time, including the hourly comics which I just posted a few days ago!
I’m so pleased that you were excited to see my work and thought well enough to ask for advice! Honestly I still struggle a lot with making comics, but they are super fun and rewarding and I’ve learned so much doing them. The main difficulty with make comics is actually DOING them - I know I gave myself a lot of excuses why I couldn’t make comics for yearssssss. Which is bunk, of course!
So, probably the best tip I could offer is to just plunge right in. Take any idea, sentence, random word or scene that pops into your head and quickly rough out page or two. It can be totally ugly and not make any sense, but you can use that rough draft to sort out how to make it better. Pay attention to the flow of the panels in your comic and how the action is shown. Does it make sense? If you took away the words, could you still get an idea of what’s going on? Do the emotions read well?
Always remember that making comics is about telling a story, so don’t feel discouraged if your art isn’t *perfect* right off the bat. Just focus on getting your idea across, that’s what’s important!
Oh! And if you want some no-pressure practice for fun, you can join my weekly comics challenge blog, Comix Warriors! Every week I post an idea to inspire participants to make a 1 page comic. It’s raddd (if I say so myself!).
