My Top Ten Tips for Starting a Webcomic

(aka "I Wish Someone Had Told Me This") Are you thinking about starting a new creative endeavor that involves sequential art? Something you hope beyond family and friends will read? Have you thought about this project at all past the initial "can't wait to start working" phase? Stop. Listen to what I am about to say. Many webcomic writers/artists make the same mistakes (myself included) by jumping straight to the "let's start drawing now" phase, bypassing the planning stage. Here are the most important items to consider before you even ink out the first strip:Consider if there is a chance your comic will become printed. Not only do you need t

I’m an American illustrator/comic artist currently living in Japan. I’ve been writing since I can remember, studying the art of storytelling since high school, and drawing since I was old enough to hold a pencil. I primarily work with watercolors and ink washes, but I am comfortable with digital painting as well. Currently, I am focusing on dynamic storytelling techniques and raising my digital painting skills.

I love movies of all kinds–good or bad– and may also have a tiny obsession with the Marvel Movie Universe. In my spare time, I bake muffins and breads from scratch, play RPGs, or sing. Sometimes all at the same time (my neighbors hate me!). I am also a confessed Sherlock Holmes and Star Trek nerd. Actually, pretty much just a nerd all around, but proud of it!

Well hey dere!

Well hey dere!

Hey everyone, I'm baaaaaack! Japan's been fun, but I only have a few weeks left here. That means, going back State-side, and being able to focus back on my art. Yes! I have a lot of plans for when I get home, including a tutorial youtube channel, and a new webcomic. So things! Excitement! Returns!

See you on the other side!

See you on the other side!

So I like I said previously, yep JAPAN. I'll be without internet for a few weeks (have been warned it could be a few months! EGADS), so once my plane leaves the first week of August, there shall be no posting for awhile. I'll be keeping myself occupied while without internets though. I just bought Sketchbook Pro and I am going to teach myself how to use it in the interim (I'll be moving to do more digital, just to save on art supplies and space in my new apartment-- it's been so long since I worked digital this will be fun ^^). Probably my doing a month challenge thing... the monster girl one sounds like a blast. WHO KNOWS. See you guys once

Life update

Life update

Hey everyone. As I mentioned earlier this year, there was a possibility that I would be moving to Japan later this year. Well I am. In 49 days. Which is why art has been kind of scarce at the moment. My membership has expired, and since I haven't had time to be active on DA for a while, I'm not going to renew it until I have moved and am comfortable there. Until then, there probably won't be much posting from me, if any. I have decided to change my account name once I do renew it-- I'm not sure what I'll grab yet. But yep, that's what's going on.

Hello, :)

You have recently left #Art-in-the-Blood and we'd like to ask you some follow-up questions. First, why did you leave? And second, is there anything we can do to improve the group?

Thanks for your time,
