I've been thinking about doing a web comic. I've thought up several characters, gotten a rough idea of the background of the area, and I've started thinking of plot threads. I've began looking at registering a domain name, where to have it hosted, and about costs. I've also started thinking about website design. There have been a few things that have been holding me back.
The one obstacle looming largest over my plan is that I am not a great artist... far from it. Seriously, have you seen or ?
Yup... my best efforts to date have been when I'm either doodling or really working for it. Take a look at . On one side, sits a doodle. On the side an endeavor crafted of several hours of effort in trail and error. I look at this and I'm proud of the sheer amount of effort I put into that work. Albert Einstein said ,"Genius is 1% talent and 99% percent hard work...". It's not just some cliché.
Earlier this morning I was doing some market research (technical term for browsing other web comics and information about how to host a web comic) and I found these you tube videos of Howard Tayler, one of my favorites, doing a key note speech... And I wanted to note it down here for anyone reading this (including myself) to find.
Pt 1 (of 4) Howard Tayler: Talent? Who needs Talent?
It's WELL worth the watch.
As for my comic... Well, it probably won't be today, but I will post something related to it today... so keep your eyes posted.
