Wow you would make a good alphys. BUt I came here with a different question as you have helped quite a lot in the past. What do you do when you second guess ideas too much? I get little inspiration bolts, but my creation process for making comics is so slow. I always seem to lose momentum at some point, then I second guess if my idea was any good at all. Have you ever had that?
<p>im slightly hung over so im doing to best to answer this properly i do apologize</p><p>um, ive definitely had the thing where if i think about my ideas too much, they start to sound really stupid and stale to my head. this is honestly the reason i stopped drawing en tu thrie, because i had all the ideas for it when i was fifteen, and people grow quite a lot in ten years, so if i wanted my comic to appeal to me, i shouldve revamped it completely, instead of keeping adding more and more things to it that were actually to my interests, because in the end it just turned out to be a bunch of nonsense with no connections and it was just, well, bad? you really have to have a backline and a support to your entire work BEFORE you start doing it and mine was wobbly and undecided and bad from the very beginning. </p><p>but what helps you keep your interest to your own creation is to make it INTERESTING to you. like dont try to hold back even for one second. add things that you love in other media, nobodys stopping you. if you find yourself slipping away from your idea and finding it noninteresting, try to think what would keep you hooked if it was someone elses webcomic. be SO self indulgent, its YOUR comic and you’re going to spend so much time on it, might as well make it enjoyable to yourself. shit if you like anime boys with cat ears or uh talking horses or steampunk princess magical girls then do a fucking comic about those things, PLEASE<br/><br/>like for example im working on a comic idea right now ,and its still really a work in progress with just bits and pieces floating around. theres a character in there i wasnt really feeling, but i started thinking.. .what would make this character interesting and appealing to me? well, now shes a 40 year old ex-boxer and im going to draw her punching other girls in this comic as she gets back into boxing. because i am so into that! and now im really excited about her lmao. <br/>im still also personally working on making it feel like MY comic and im really excited about it because basically nothing is stopping me from doing whatever i want and while writing this response to you i already got some new ideas i really have to do so thank you for that. </p><p>you should feel free to also build the world your comic is happening in however you like. make the surroundings something you find beautiful. if it happens in a city, think about things you love in cities and draw your characters in those surroundings. like, if you love dark and empty parking lots outside of super markets, feel free to add a scene that happens at night and theres nobody around but your characters. like.. try to start writing scenes around things you kinda would like to see in your comic? even if it was a reason like “i really want to draw this character getting their hair cut shorter, so maybe they have a friend who studies hair-styling and wants to test their new scissors, or they have to babysit their niece who puts gum in their hair, or they just feel like they want a new haircut because they feel like it?” ???? ya know? <br/><br/>also make your characters relatable to yourself? im absolutely projecting things about myself onto mine, so i know how to write them better and feel more involved and actually WANT them to solve their problems. i know this is a rly personal thing to do but can also be really subtle about it lmao, but, let me tell you, when an author adds a bit of their own life and self onto their creation, it really shows and its amazing and so honest and makes the entire work so, you know, thats why i love independent creators so much? <br/><br/>dont worry about being slow either, some artists are slower and some faster but everyones method of creating is their own and works for them for a reason! (also the more you keep creating comics the faster you become at it!!) also try to remember that if YOU love your own comic, the chances of someone else liking it too are pretty high, so dont worry about it, or second guess your ideas too much! do it! plan your story and ask for feedback and once you learn what you couldve done better, you use that new knowledge on your next project! comics are amazing!!! go draw them!!!!!! I dont even know if this answered your question because i got a little sidetracked there but feel free to talk to me more lmao *SIPS COFFEE*</p>
