So I noticed recently that while a lot of people here do some realy great art, no-one seems to be writing stories with it. Creating comics is one of the best ways to improve because it forces you to look at all areas of art, it keeps you motivated since you have a task with a foreseeable endgoal, and it poses lots of creative challenges. Don't just think of it as a means to be gooder at artisting though.

Don't think you have to nail regular drawing before you can start doing comics. If you think that, you will never do anything. You don't have to be good, you just have to be creative. Try not to just do moeblobs standing still and talking about how their mangaka is such a qt, make your images dynamic and try to communicate something like a story or a feeling.

There's a great series of blogposts called '18 tips for comic book artists'. http://www.williamstout.com/news/journal/?p=3806
(All those images are there for a reason, study them!)

Sorry to dissapoint you, but the comic I posted isn't mine. It's by a guy called Moebius, I got it from one of the blog posts in the link.

>I cant really draw comics cause my motivation wanes incredibly fast.

Maybe start off with doing short strips about whatevers on your mind? If you're interested in increasing your attention span you could slowly increment the amount of panels you do, but thats obviously not nessicary. It would be a shame to not do any comics because you can't commit to a multi-volume epic.

Hello. I'm new here, I make comics. I would like to become an official lurker of the Sushi Comic Alliance.

Not sure if I have time for zine work right now (as cool as it sounds), but I might shoot you an email with some questions.

Hey sushis! My bf is an incredible artist and he's always wanted create a graphic novel. He's working on typing the story out and developing characters before he starts though. I think he should just start with what he has already but he's a bit of a perfectionist lol. He works a full-time job so this is just a hobby and he doesn't have much time to work on it. Is there anything I can do to support him or make it easier for him? I'd love for him to reach his goal.
