Alright, last journal was all about not knowing what to do next. I sort of got past that for now, so here's what's happening...

Making Comics


For now my main creative focus is resuming Ninmu Nanmu as a comic to the best of my ability. So far I've been doing a pretty terrible job of finishing on time, but the work is getting done and I'm pretty happy with the finished pages. I should be able to upload new pages weekly if I keep learning from my mistakes. Some of the delays have also been caused just because it's been so long and I've lost track of some of my old plans and reference drawings and such; that should stop happening after a little while. I don't have any specific plans beyond updating on time; other projects are on hold until I've got that figured out.

Patreon


To help me work on the comic, I've started a Patreon campaign where people can sign up to contribute money every time I finish a page. I've seen this work really well for other comics, and it's already turning out to be a big help for me. A few people signed up right away and the difference in my motivation is night and day; it really makes me feel like the comic has a future worth working toward. If you want to help me continue the comic, check it out and maybe sign up: www.patreon.com/johncolburn

Also: I know there are a lot of good reasons a person may not be able to spare money. Completed pages will always be free for everybody everywhere, so don't worry that you're missing out just because all your money is tied up with more important things.

Activity


Can anybody recommend a drawing tablet that actually works right? I've tried Wacom and Monoprice but both are unreliable.
So I thought I could finish the next page of NN yesterday, but then I had to re-learn how to do perspective drawings. Backgrounds are a pain. It'll be done asap... it's pretty much just one panel that's slowing everything down.
Nevermind I guess, seems like there's something wrong with the stream. Dunno if it's the software, my connection, or what but it doesn't seem like it's working.
Working on next page of NN. I'm a little behind but it should be done today. Streaming here: www.twitch.tv/johncolburn
I'm trying to make the next page of Ninmu Nanmu and streaming it too I guess: www.twitch.tv/johncolburn
