Hello! I just saw your Minecraft comic being shared in Imgur and I must say I really love it! It's so beatiful colored and the design of the main character is ver charming! I will start watching you if you don't mind, your other stuff is really neat looking and I love your style. Thanks for sharing and keep up the great work!

I love your stuff! Do you have any advice for artists who want to start a webcomic but can't find the motivation?

That is kind of a tough one having the motivation is kinda where it all starts. If your talking  about having trouble finding a starting point then my philosophy has always been to just start. Even if it is just a simple idea don't worry about having a 10 year plan or an expansive story just get used to the act o making a strip on a regular basis then you can either morph the idea or shut down the first comic and starting a new one with an idea you like better ect. If you look at most web comics , at least in my limited experience, they often time change wildly in style and feel as they go so it is something you can start with just a simple idea and elaborate on as you go.

On the other side of things I have seen many a creative person getting too obsessive about every little detail of the story , the style, the banners for the page they are going to put on the web page that they never actually get around to making a comic. There is a point where you have to just go ahead and start drawing, figure out those details as you go; get experience, learn and improve your paneling by doing actual strips; interact with the people that are reading your comic and figure out what and where you stories may be confusing. The chance that you or I are going to put down out magnum opus of a comic on our first try with out putting in the practice and gaining the experience is pretty low. So watch out for trying to be too big, precise and perfect from the start where you don't actually ever make a comic.

So yeah my advice for anyone wanting to make a comic of any sort is to just start doing it. Don't let any online numbers or metrics keep you from just punching out pages. Listen to the feed back and use it to improve and clarify. Go back and look at penny arcade (arguably the biggest online comic) look at their early strips and see how terrible those strips are and you can watch as the look and writing improves after the years of practice they have put in. The only "secret" I have for making web comics is to just make a web comic and have fun doing it :)

Hopefully that makes sense :)
