The Sound Of Silence - DA Statement

The Sound Of Silence - DA Statement

So Eclipse is ComingSEE MY LATEST JOURNAL ON THIS HERE: I'd like to organize a proactive event to show DA the possible results of a permanent Eclipse change-over. Instead of deactivating your accounts for good, or indefinitely boycotting the site, I'd like to make a Statement of Silence for those Users against Eclipse. Starting May 1st, I will not be active on Deviantart. I will not submit new deviations, journals or even visit the site for 3 Days time. From 12:00AM CST May 1st to 12:00am May 4th. (3 days) I ask all other Users who wish to keep old Deviantart to join me in this statement of silence. Not Only Is Eclipse Difficult to Navigate

My Bio
A1cd0526-8078-45e6-a973-18111e5c0a66

From July 2014 to April 2017 I drew pages for the comic "Concerning Rosamond Grey". Currently I'm writing the script and world-building for my second comic, and improving my art technique.

With my comics, I have two goals: one, to improve my comic art to a professional level; and two, to achieve this goal using only traditional methods. I get my inspiration from the works of Osamu Tezuka, Hagio Moto, Shigero Mizuki and Keiko Takemiya. I would also like to try having no physical or digital screen tone.

I decided to stop tinkering (there is always something to fix), and the Ebook is now available on Amazon Kindle: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B088Q3JY1M I'm nervous.

How do you feel about chapter breaks in a graphic novel...

I Gave Up on Amazon

I Gave Up on Amazon

Hello all, After spending hours this weekend trying to format the CRG comic to my specifications and trying to guess Amazon's, I got this disappointing email: Of course, they objected to the pages with some bleed. If someone had told me how difficult it would be to try to format a comic using Kindle Direct Publishing, I would not have even tried. Rather than giving clear guidelines on formatting a comic for paperback, I have been constantly guessing. Here is a video of my eye-balling measurements: Next I will look at Lulu.com: they have templates, so I don't have to guess measurement; they have different choices of paper; they mail world-wide; and they actually have customer support. Alternatively, I can try the off-site printing and only order 50 books at a time, and mail them as needed. It could be that I'm a perfectionist, but I feel that if people are paying money for my book, I want to give them a quality product, not something with weird printing mismatches. On my
