do the entire thing out of spite

bEING REAL THOUGH just make sure its a story you like and want to draw and then its going to be a lot easier to stay motivated, maybe set goals like have one page done each week, dont aim for it to be too long, maybe like 20 to 30 pages at the very most (30 weeks is half a year if your going to do the one page per week thing) and refine the comic as much as possible so its more panels/content per page so in the end theres less pages (i kept having problems with not enough panels per page so i ended up with a realllllly slow pace and it took about 10 weeks to actually start{the rest was just filler} and about 67 weeks for the comic to turn to the next freaking day, just aim for 4 to 6 panels per page and if its not necessary then cut it out of the comic[you dont want to spend a year and a half doing a comic that doesnt move the plot forward and feels pretty much useless trust me :'D]) ALSO dont beat yourself up if its not the best, you improve with time and its better to move forward and tell the rest of the story rather than keep rewriting the same part over and over!

good luck! <3

oh gos h I did write some advice for a friend on tumblr that's probably quite useful for you since she was asking similar stuff and because honestly I don't wanna type something new and because it's all over the place I don't wanna copy and paste it here so just like, yeah - esternna.tumblr.com/post/16841…

I haven't actually started my comic yet but I've been able to stay motivated because I constantly think about it when listening to songs or just daydreaming so that may help. Also there's this tutorial I found before about good comic cover concepts How to draw COMIC COVERS tutorial
