I have been overwhelmed at the feedback I’ve received for the first episode of TBS. Thank you so much! I’m on track to have episode 3 release June 1st for Patrons, and Episode 2 drops for free June 1st here as well as Webtoon Canvas. To show my thanks, I’ve posted a little sneaky peeky panel from Episode 3! Thank you for subscribing.
I’ve received a lot of feedback asking me how I’m doing this with a full time job and a store on the side? I plan everything out. I draw a little bit everyday, the goal is always about 1-2 panels a day and nothing more so that I can 1. hone my craft and 2. not burn out. I color code the dialog based on the storyboard I’ve created so I know which sections will be panels. This includes storyboarding, and if necessary writing. It was worked well for me.
I’ve also received some really great feedback on how I should optimize for mobile viewports better, so Episode 3 will have larger panels, larger text, and an overall better handheld experience! I can’t wait to share it with you. Thanks again for all the support, feedback, and words of affirmation. Especially to those who have been reading since day one and are genuinely excited and supportive of me and my work. Love you all.
Episode 1 is now available! To my Patrons, supporters, and friends who read it early, gave me feedback, praise, and love–Thank you. I’m so grateful for you. I have always wanted to make a comic and tell this specific story, so I’m so incredibly excited to share it with you.
New Episodes will be on a monthly cadence since I also have a full time job, and run an Etsy shop on the side. 😅 But if you like what I’m doing, or just want to support me you can do so on Patreon, you can also read Episode 2 a month earlier than everyone else at the Early Access Guild tier. I also post sketches, process, and sneak peeks of upcoming episodes, and all tiers include Discord benefits. I also appreciate the comments and emails so keep those coming!
I never thought I would be able to do something like this so I’m really proud. I used to tell myself I would wait until I was ‘good enough’ to make a comic, but the reality is, I would have been waiting forever. And what better way to get good at something than to just do it. I have a newfound respect for webtoon artists now.
This episode is particularly long because it’s the introduction to our main protagonist and the story. Probably twice as long as what I’d consider a normal episode length, but I felt it was important. I hope you like what I’ve made so far. Episode 1 will be available in May, but you can read it one month early if you subscribe to my Patreon at the Early Access Guild level. Time to churn out Episode 2 so it’s available to Patrons come May. The story, and the art will only get better, so I hope you’ll stick with me on this journey. Thank you for the support.
Episode 1, part 1 (of 2) now available to read if you subscribe to my Patreon at the Early Access Tier, if not–no worries–it’ll be available for free in May 2023! I was so excited I simply couldn’t wait to share it, even if it’s only part 1 for now. But I’m making good progress.
I’m still trying to figure out my workflow and groove, but I am truly enjoying bringing this story to life. I hope that comes through. Thanks to those of you who have shown me kindness and support, I’m extremely grateful.
