    Well that sounds terrible.

    Appreciate the behind the scenes - so to speak - look at your process. "Very difficult but intensely rewarding" would about sum it up lol

I just don't really have a fleshed out enough concept for one yet.
    It really is a whole different craft than just drawing characters chatting and doing things, there needs to be a logical sequential flow between panels and consideration of the page layout and how that, in turn, affects how it reads. If it's print, whoof, gotta be particular about your paper's proportions and the art bleed lines and how the layout is affected physically for the reader.

    But at the same time, don't let that discourage you. Overthinking it is always the biggest impediment to getting started!

    These days, for myself I find it's also a matter of time management and mental clarity that also stacks up on top of that. Exhaustion is anathema to grit, ugh.

    For sure.

    Actually, I did sketch up a couple pages recently of just random scenes just to practice paneling. I was afraid I had lost the knack completely, but I just had to actually do it.

    Robot Man traversing a mountain towards a strange tower.

    Crow Man with a sword fighting some kind of monster.

    I have learned to embrace the pantsing style of doing things more, for sure. Sitting down and doing it has done a lot more for me the last few years than trying to plan everything out extensively before I get started. But there is a balance to strike.

    Yeah, I hear ya.

    Strictly speaking, I have more time than a man my age probably should have, but I am also easily exhausted by my job, and I burn out hard after basically every short creative bout, so it's very, very hard for me to stay on the horse. I keep coming back around to making stuff, though, because I guess I'm too stubborn to just give it up entirely.

    Not to quote myself too much, but looking at the rest of the files it looks like I had a lot of interaction with all kinds of people in that game. Cleric and COR were two others.

    Fun stuff.

    I'm kinda sorry I missed so much of the RP culture here. In the early years, I was able to keep up, but then the style of play grew way past what I could keep up with, and the most popular game types just weren't really what I grooved with. Losing home internet access definitely kicked the chair out from under me there, and by the time I got back into it, I just wasn't on the same wavelength.

    Ah, that takes me back. Too bad that one fizzled out, it had a lot of potential. You played an NPC as I recall, right?

    Ooh, I remember having the Cobra Xenomorph toy before ever seeing any of the Alien movies. And it was the right size to fight against my Megazord.

    Good times.

    Gundam: The Witch from Mercury is great so far. Animation style, voice work, backgrounds, mech design, etc….all knocking it out of the park for me.

    Really dig the fact that the main character is…….nice. Friendly. Not traumatized or a super soldier or enhanced (as far as we know) right now (and even has a parent). Also dig how her suit took apart her opponents. One of the few times I really dug the funnel/flying weapons maneuver.
