This is my first real go at digital art. Didn't turn out how would've liked, but the colours are nice.
A bit off topic, but I've been considering this idea a while. I've wanted to get good at drawing forever, but never put in the work (lack of motivation, no ideas of what to draw). Would be fun to make a comic as practice, never erasing anything, keeping at that same comic. Would be fun to see how fast any difference would come, and it being a comic there'd always be a next logical step of what to draw. And driving the story forward would fuel motivation.
Would you want to read something like that, even if the quality was trash?>>458
It is a bit crusty (still less so than my stuff), but I still like it. Would totally read a comic in that style.

Depends how easily accessible it would be.
Accessible in tone or where to read it?
Figured maybe I'd set up a neocity or something for it. Or if I'd get too lazy for that just post them in this thread.
Actually bought some ink, nibs and a holder for this thing today. Can't give in to the temptation to erase or redo if it's in ink. Been too busy a day, too tired to start now. Maybe I'll do the first page tomorrow.
Where to read it.
Mostly by accepting RSS, rather than having to check the website every now and then; if you put something of dubious quality out there it should be easy to find and re-visit.
I'll make sure to add support for that, doesn't seem too hard on a cursory glance.
Still haven't started up with the actual drawing yet, had to figure a bit about what to actually do, think I've come upon a small story seed that I could easily improvise from and keep going.
Kind of nervous about actually putting nib to paper, almost want to do exercises first and between the pages, but also kind of want to keep faith in the idea to just have at it, let it be what it is.
It's in the works, probably will do some pages before setting up the site so there's not just one image to start with.
If you really want to do a comic, for fun or passion, then you should keep that your top priority as long as those matter to you.
Too many get caught up in the push for technical skill they lose why they're doing it in the first place. Not to say you can't practice of course, but if you're getting trapped by it you have to let it go a little.
Don't forget either: there's so many webcomics that start out with "less-than-adequate" looks but they grow better over time just by the author continuing to work on it, plus doing motivated practice on technicals.
Basically don't hesitate, just do it!
Yeah, it's kinda like when you have something you need to do and you somehow accidentally clean your place instead (actually did instead of getting started, but it was kinda worth it, comfier to sit down without the mess).
Just dove into it though, getting ink was a good decision. Instead of getting annoyed at details it's more of a "fuck it" and moving on.
The hands though. The damn hands. Forgot about those.
Also it's already getting me motivated to get out more, I can't at all visualize what a forest looks like. I know there's trees, but I can't place the rest, the ground, etc. Makes me want to go out for walks again and really watch what things actually look like so I can put it in the comic.
You're quite a handsome guy, sushi roll. How did you go about making this?
