What happens when you forget how your character looks like. Tylis looks nothing like his older pictures from Oeclair

I'm commenting while I read and on my cell, so sorry a head of time for weird spelling.

Too many of the oel copied the surface look of Manga. I never liked the sweatdrop, the random chibi moment, nor high school setting, or any number of things yet I mostly read manga. Comics in France and Japan are created with a wide variety. France has a lot of Manga style comics. First impressions are important and sadly oel is not something to tag on your comic. Readers will see the cover and see its Manga style.no need to repeat.

The fact that GNs cost more in the us yet make about 1/5 the money of Japan is a sad but interesting note.

As I've said on twitter and what you posted in length, Its really all about the numbers. Comics are considered low borrow. Take a well written comic and turn it into a novel and it would more likely to sell more.

As fort artist alley, even if I were to start drawing a lot of fan art, the ROI for cons are horrible unless you develop a following which is best serve with your personal brand. You can't develop a brand drawing the same thing everyone else is drawing. With the rising accounts of artist being mistreated in the AA, doing it in the hopes (instead of a business plan) of making bank is a serious waste of time that can be put towards working on original work and honing your skill. This is why a lot of us who seem to be getting better leave the anime cons. Why invest in a bad investment? I make more at nycc with table costs 2 to 3 times more then most anime cons.

What could really help us artists is really having a humble attitude, work diligently and never stop learning. We need more education and not just about drawing pretty pictures. We need more business post like the skull kickers post, more story writing panels at cons, more human posts of topics that affects all of us. We also need to get out more and experience more to bring more flavors to our comics and not isolate out selves and bring in more readers to the fandom.

" Kirk and Spock disagree, so Spock orders Kirk marooned on an ice planet that will probably kill him. The crew complies. Because, you know, the execution of your second in command for disagreement is totally protocol. Kirk awakes on the ice planet, gets attacked by a monster, and runs five feet before bumping into old Spock. Old Spock tells Kirk everything that's happening, then says that Scotty is in the next cave over. They meet Scotty and old Spock gives them some magical transporter formula to beam them light years away. They get on to the ship, Kirk starts dropping "yo Momma!" jokes on Spock, who goes to slap him, then realizes that he's overly emotional and steps-down. Sentencing Kirk to death for disagreeing with him? Fine. Hitting Kirk for insulting his mother over and over again? That crosses the line." taken from the star trek forums on imdb. I,loved ST09 but this was just too good of a post. Lol
