So, instead of sleeping, my brain won't shut up. I am a dummy! I've been thinking about doing a comic again, but it's hard to figure out just what, exactly, I want to do, or when to do it, or even if I should.

Being in school and having my own personal writing projects hinder my ability to spend a lot of time on artwork, unfortunately. But since I love both writing and drawing, my brain won't stop begging me to do a comic. I feel like if I wait until I graduate I'm still just going to keep putting this off;

So, I should feed that urge and just do it. If I were to try it again, though, it would be a slice-of-life series. No world-building or over-complicated serialized plots to worry about. I'm just at a crossroads as to where to go from there. I, of course, want to do a comic about nudism, but I still need to figure a premise that would get the characters there. The original idea for Dawn of Venus was to tell a nudist story that takes place in the future, after humanity had developed a nudist mindset. That sci-fi back drop, however, lead me to overdo it on some of the world-building and story stuff and it became too much to handle. 

I, of course, could just say "heck it" and write some SOL comic that just so happens to have all the characters naked. However, nudity is a major taboo/issue in the real world, so I think that needs to be addressed when telling a nudist narrative that does take place in our world. "The Bare Pit" already did the "a bunch of characters live in a naturist resort" thing, so I'd like to do something different. I have some ideas but still need to figure them out. If anyone reading this would like to bounce off some ideas with me, send me a PM! *wink wink*

Right now, though, I'm just working out a cast of characters I want to commit to (and you'll be seeing more of them here on DA *wink wink*). There's just one more problem... I have either a cast of 8 or 6 main characters to work with. 6 is the obvious better number, but trimming things down is just complicated. I'll say this, which may seem shocking, but... I probably won't put Dawn in it. 
patrick gaspYeah, I know. However, I just haven't found her to be a particularly interesting character to write (she was interesting when she had a crazy sci-fi backstory in Dawn of Venus, but not so much when it's just SOL). Considering her body type, out of all the characters I'm working on, she's best suited to tell the self-esteem and body positivity side of the nudist narrative. But outside of that there wouldn't really be anything else for her to do. I don't know. Need to think on that more...

And since this journal is just one big mind-vomit so I can finally turn my brain off and go to sleep, I may as well add that I've also been interested in making, uh... *ahem*... lewwwwdd comics, which of course wouldn't be allowed on DA, despite this being the only place I post my work. No idea when or if I'd do that or even if I should attach my name/pen name to something like that, but yeaaah... Definitely something I've also thought about. I've even thought about connecting that to the nudist comic idea (separate comic series, same world kind of deal), but yeah. I. Just. Don't. Know. And I need to go to sleep. 

The End.

Hello, thank you for the comment! Dawn of Venus was going to be a sci-fi nudist comic about Dawn, a young woman who moves away from her home planet Venus. She seeks to hide and alive an isolated life, but can't help making new friends, which becomes a problem when she has a dark secret to hide. 

The project ended up being a lot more complicated than initially planned, so unfortunately, it likely won't come to fruition.
