Yeah, working with someone on a comic seems like it’d be hard.
Yea the one I was wanting to do I started in 2011 (after I wrote Mechanic Slave) and I only just yesterday finally put an ending on it.
So I think I decided to just draw my own stuff for now.
Consider that I’ve only written for 11 years, you get the idea.
Yep, drawing your own stuff really is the way to go
for me I’m trying to learn how to draw backgrounds.
I wonder if my experience was common, I chalked the stalling to just writing Seinin drama when others were wanting Gag A Day Shojo.
6 years is a long time to stall on a graphic novel. Even factoring in the length of time it takes to pitch to an agent, even that is blessingly short.
The prequel was comparably a breeze, finishing it in 3 weeks for the first 5,000 words. And four more for the next 15,000 words.
It’s called Block-Party. I’m not able to post a link for some reason, but it’s also at rantscomics. It hasn’t been updated in a while, though.
Ooh! Awesome! I’ll check it out!
I like the community, though I haven’t updated there in a while.
I am actually thinking about porting a second series of mine here, but it is a comic strip rather than an narrative, so I do not know how it would do.
I want to see if the fictional natural and literary language I’m creating will actually carry over into comics: it’s basically French and Japanese. Written as an expression of allegiance and alliance to both languages, but more heavily French inflected and uses Marine/Ocean based references in its language.
Ex. La bateau, c’est regarde avec la baleine. C’est ne tempura pas en la umi.
Japanese is barely present in that example of course.
