20 TIPS for Webcomic Beginners!
So you’re a big fan of webcomics, and you’re thinking about starting your own. Great! As Scott McCloud says, “there are no rules,” but here are 20 AMAZING TIPS that I’ve discovered and collected over the years that are sure to help any budding webcomic creator out of a bind or two.
1. IT’S THE INTERNET– it’s not like it’s professional or anything! Let’s face it, you’re publishing online because (and solely because) you couldn’t get published in any real and respectable medium, like the funny pages of a local newspaper. Don’t take yourself too seriously! Nobody else is going to anyway!
2. In the same vein, DON’T WORRY ABOUT QUALITY. Nobody expects good free things on the internet, and who are you to try and start a crazy, doomed-from-day-one tactic like that? It’s already well established that comics on the internet are fourth- or fifth-string players in a medium that’s really only for children anyway. Put out whatever quality work you can do in a short enough amount of time and the internet won’t mind one bit.
I think it’s pretty hard to miss the sarcasm, but just in case you need the hint, the entire thing is a joke. 🙂 Enjoy.
