Hello, thank you for checking out Blue Fox Comics Creating a Great Comic from Scratch series of posts.
Straight off the bat, it’s vital to understand, thanking people is important, and being a jerk is not an option. You’ll be asking people to help you along the way, and, by and large, they will help you.
It’s important to recognise that, and respond to them simply, in a timely manner, to show them your appreciation, and to understand that their help has been listened to.
Saying ‘thank you’ does just that.
Okay, so now that’s out the way, what’s next? A simple truth.
You can do this.
This is not an unknown. There are clear steps to creating a comic from scratch. Follow the steps, and they will lead you where you need to go. Some steps you will harder, but if you persist, you will succeed.
Ready? Good. Me, too.
Over the coming weeks, I’ll be covering a range of topics, including getting your story idea, developing it, putting it into the correct format, finding an artist, and lots more.
Creating something new is exciting, and that’s what we’re going to do.
Stuff to do before the next post:
If you’re someone who jots ideas down somewhere, be it on paper or on a computer, it’d be really cool to take a look at some of those stories now, in whatever shape they’re in.
If you haven’t had any ideas yet, then think about some of the stories you like to read. These could be in any medium; comics, books, plays, movies.
