There’s a post around here about discouraging art theft, let me see… [here].
Being in highschool means you don’t have time to sit and draw all day. It doesn’t mean you can’t have a fun personal side project going on in your free time. You have weekends and holidays.
Also, if you do start a webcomic, remember that you are not obligated to update on time every day at a rigid schedule. Some webcomics update three times a week, others three times a month. I [follow a comic] that updates only a few times a year, though those updates are entire full colour chapters.
If anyone gives you hell about your update schedule just remember that you don’t owe anyone a thing. You’re doing it for fun because it’s something you wanna do. (And it’s perfectly OK to stop wanting to at any point, even after only one page.)
Should you start? Only if you want to. If you have a story you wanna tell, and you also want to practice your art, it’s a great way of doing both. Don’t worry about being good enough to draw it, or if it’s been done before. If you feel like doing it, then just go for it :D
Yes there will be a Nagranowrimo, but the month hasn’t been decided yet. It’s hard because there simply isn’t one month that will work for everyone. I would like to hold it in April, May, or June. April is awfully close and there’s going to be a Camp Nanowrimo session (a kind of looser version of Nanowrimo). May is far enough out for me to prepare and promote better, but it’s also end of the US school year so I worry that would prevent people from participating. June is definitely far enough out to prepare but it feels almost too far away, and I think it would be nice to hold a 2nd session in the fall.
So yeah, any feedback on the best month is appreciated!
Okay … really not sure if this is serious. I did link to the image in question once upon a time in this post but I’m not sure how anyone would find from this blog searching for “how to draw an owl”. Also that image is pretty widely distributed and clearly meant to be a joke.
I’ve posted hundreds of pictures and links of (hopefully) useful tutorials and resources and I’m sorry you found one of the 3 or so that were meant to provide a little humor to the whole drawing process.
Anyway, here’s a non-snarky profanity free Owl anatomy tutorial.
