This is my first thread here, I'm currently releasing this webcomic on a weekly basis and looking for some input as Deviant Art is kinda dead and I just can't get the hang of Tumblr.

Anyway, it's a slice of life comic with some mild fantasy/paranormal themes and should be safe for all ages to read! :)

Would you be interested in joining a webcomic discord? You can talk to others that have their own comic as well as the artists that regularly post there.

Comic looks interesting so far.

>SFW human comic promoted in a NSFW focused furry board

I don't think this site is remotely close to being fitting to that comic's exposure, but get what you can, I guess.

I dunno how to use Discord, but if it's live my spoken English is terrible, but I'd be willing to give it the shot just for laughs at least.

Discord is mostly used for text. It's just a chat room but very popular.

https://discord.gg/R6djQb

Here's the invite, it's good for a day. And don't worry, there's plenty of Spanish speaking artists here as well.

Well, just 4 more pages until this chapter is done, though I dunno when I'll start doing the next one, not many people have responded to this, even though I've shared it on Deviant Art, Tumblr and Facebook, guess it'll be back to the drawing board for me, heh, "drawing".

The thing about webcomics is that it is an oversaturated market and the best way to make any kind of impact is to consistently put out a comic and shill yourself as much as you can. We're talking YEARS to grow a small fanbase. And it helps to have a hook that people will find interesting. Your goal is to make people care about your product. There are thousands of webcomics out there and many of them are barely known.

There was one person I knew of that started making webcomics and wanted to make enough money to live on his own in a year. He made it to about 20-ish pages, wanted to start his comic over again, lost all motivation, and has since removed all his content and deleted all his online accounts.

I have known another person that has been working on their webcomic for a few years and has a decent story with an interesting art style. He stopped updating his comic several months ago and nobody had noticed or commented on it.

I personally have a little bit of success but it's nowhere near the amount that I have seen with other webcomics that have been around for a time. I know a webcomic that admittedly doesn't have the best art but they put out comics everyday and some pages have nudity and sex but they're censored. And the only way to see it is by pledging $10 on Patreon to get access. And they're raking in about $1k a month because of it. The admirable thing is that they make their money on their own characters and don't rely on fanart to get attention.

You seem to have some people interested in your comic and that's a start. The key is to keep growing that fanbase and to consistently put out content. Otherwise they forget about you and move onto something else.

The real question is if you want to move forward with this comic or are you interested in doing something different?

Oh, that is really good input, and it makes sense.

And to answer your question: yes, I want to continue making this, even if it never becomes popular, it's probably my most complete work, since its in color,

But sadly, I've also got a lot of other stories planned including some that I'm actually printing (black and white) and selling to a few readers.

Currently, I have 2 stories I need to work on since on one we're on our third annual issue (I know this doesn't sound like much but I'm basically doing all the work myself) and haven't worked on the fourth for this year (except a few storyboard pages), I also have to work on another's second issue since the first one raised a few eyebrows because it has polemic content and people have been asking for more even though we never specified there would be a second part.

I'm also working on translating these to English so I can sell them in the US through Ka-Blam, you get a few cents of profit, but they do all the printing and shipping which is cool.

I also got another story I made with a buddy of mine, and I plan to post it here once Vanilla Bites is done since it's furry, art is not as good since my co-writer did the coloring and I was just learning how to use a drawing tablet back then, anyway, just need to revise it and I'll start showing to you guys to see whatcha all think.

Thanks again for your help and comments :)

Oh man, I also forgot, I'm currently working on my first hentai comic, which is a fanzine (since I'll be printing it at home in small numbers), right now I'm on the 15th page out of 20, and need to get this done by early September, which will be close AF.

I've also got even another black and white fanzine I've had on hiatus since 2010, and it was my first and longest publication until now with 10 24-page issues, I currently have it online if anyone's interested, but the art is really bad since I didn't have a tablet back then and the last few issues were weak story-wise.

I also tried to do a Sonic fanfic comic, but nobody noticed and art was also bad.

Finally, did a bit of a Skyrim fanfic with three issues (bad art as well), some people showed interest, but didn't feel like continuing that one and opted instead to work on my original stuff.

Page 20. At the time I could only think of 30 Days of Night as the movie where once you'd get bitten, you'd become a vampire, but now I remember that happened too in From Dusk 'Til Dawn and (I think) Underworld.

Well there was Omega Man/I am Legend.

But yeah, most kinds of vampire fiction has special rules for vampire conversion.

ID: b072d  No.11417

>>11416
Haven't watched Omega Man, although, in I Am Legend they were more like ferals like the ones in 28 Days Later, right?

Heh, I find it funny how people nowadays think that one bite and your effed, if that were the case, rabies would've ended the world since long ago.

In the original novel I am Legend, and the Vincent Price adaptation they were more clearly vampires.

Page 23. And so, we are done with this chapter! How y'all people liked it (or not)? I know I took a risk in uploading this at a furry board, and I WAS warned against it, but like I was also told, it's better than nothing, anyway, I think only one people read this, so I guess it'd be too much to ask for people's extended opinion on this huh? Anyway, thanks for reading! :)

Well, I've enjoyed the first chapter. Looking forward to seeing where this goes. I think I might give you a watch on DA. What's the name?

lol, me again, went today and printed three issues of VBites for some friends of mine, and noticed they look pretty good as physical copies, so was wondering, would anyone be interested in getting them? It would probably be through a third-party print shop like Ka-Blam, not me myself.

I would be interested in a copy.
