Is there any way how to subscribe rss feed to this comics? I've read the whole first chapter on your web sites and am willing to read more, I like the style of your drawings and I like the story flow, it made me curious about how this all will end.
Huh, that is interesting ,I guess not.I thought we used to have an "rss feed" button at the bottom of the pages of the Windstone forum. Maybe that is just on the blog page. The Windstone website will have updates on Monday.[link]
Aww, that's a pity,I haven't found any button.. I hope that I won't forget to check it for updates, it's much easier to be reminded of every news via my gmail's rss reader. Now I have all the comics I read there and I can be sure that I won't forget to read any page.
I'm also trying to create my own comics, I partially know what you mean.. partially, because I even haven't yet went through a stage of figuring out key points of my story, haha! Did you use any help, like tutorials/tips, or did you do it all on your own?
Oh, I use everything I can find, I read a lot of books about comics; books such as "understanding comics" by Scott McCloud [link]. I highly recommend his books if you haven't read them, though you still won't understand comics! But mostly,I LOVE analyzing comic books,and the characters that I love, and I try to figure out exactly what about them I like so much(and also why I dislike some!) That is really a fascinating thing to study! I have found the trickiest part of writing a graphic novel is judging how much of the story you can trust the reader to figure out, ( or make up) for themselves, so I don't over-explain things and make it boring. That is the best feature of a web-comic, not only do you get proof readers to correct your spelling and punctuation, they let you know if they don't "get" something, so you can fix it before it gets printed!
Thank you so much for the information! That gives me a whole new look on making a comics I didn't even thought about books on this subject, that's a great idea! I'll check the one you proposed ^^ Once more thank you!
Do you have any favorite webcomics? I have problem with finding ones I'd enjoy for a longer period of time, so if you don't mind sharing ^^
Yes, I agree so much! Now that I think (yey! I think), I believe I can't name what exactly makes certain stories appealing and what does not. I guess, I should also analyze as I read and study if I'm planning on making something worth reading Thanks for making me think! ^^
my favorite comics in general: "Finder" by Carla Speed McNeil [link] (This used to be an online comic but it looks like the website is a place to buy the books now) "Stinz" by Donna Barr [link] Do you have favorites? I am always looking for new ones to read!
I don't know if my lickings will click with yours but I can propose few I find interesting
Wapsi Square: [link] - demons, mythical creatures and humor, Gunnerkrigg [link] - also demons, creatures, technology, world divided between humans and nature, Hominids: [link] - world where exist more species of humans, Unlife: [link] - zombies, but taken from a little bit different angle,
My personal favorites: My Life with Fel: [link] - a life of a shy boy and a tiger girl (might be quite kinky at the beginning but then it gets better) Sequential Art: [link] - life of unusual roommates, lots of good humor along with variety of sci-fi theme
