Solving Webcomic Issues We All Face. Now featuring a listener’s issue each podcast! Happy New Year! First Podcast of 2012!
This podcast we discuss:
Antoine: The more different Social Medias we are using, the more we start using tools that is duplicating posts from one to another. At what point using multiple Social Medias is too much? Or is it the more the merrier? Or the more you use (and duplicate the posts) the more it becomes less personal and marketing focused only?
Byron: Am I putting too much effort into my pencils? I do a rough sketch layter, then I do a nearly finished pencil layer, then essentially I trace over that finished pencil layer. When I see pencils for comic books, they are practically identical to the inks, but usually the inks are done by a separate person. In comic strips, in most cases, the inks are done by the same artist who did the pencils. So, am I wasting time doing such finished pencils?
Ken: What’s the best way to jump back in from putting your comic on hold – what’s the best way to make a splash and generate some excitement?
Dawn: I’m doing my 500th comic this week. I have already revealed that the “big surprise” is that it will be 100% done by hand, start-to-finish, no computers used until I scan the final piece. What are some other awesome landmark ideas you have seen or have done? Something to make the update special and exciting for your readers?
