Do you have any examples of a working concept for a comic strip?
I don't have a comic strip yet..... I do have an art blog here. mrnobodyart.blogspot.com...
I've been painting and drawing for about 4 years with traditional and digital media, and for the past few months learning to digital ink illustrations
Mostly self taught, and in a local painting class that's stealing my money for canvas frames lol....
I do have a illustration concept.... called : Red Chaku
It would be a grungy black and red theme comic book with a Irish female nunchaku assassin lol. I'm not sure of the best way to finish and publish it.

Are you only working with digital media, or do you also utilize more traditional means like pencil and ink?

Hey awesome, I could use lots of advice.... You gotta link me to your work. I would imagine it's a huge task to do it yourself... I have been
thinking about that and how you guys keep it fresh... the time it takes to create, self-discipline and staying motivated.
Yeah I'm not much of a writer, more on the illustrator side.
My spelling and grammar skills are so bad that spellchecks usually freeze up. :O
I do have a rough sketch written up for a comic book, but it's more of a storyboard on paper with different box scenes and endings... and it's only 2
pages long. My dominant right brain can't get past 2 pages lol.... I dunno, maybe I'll start off with small comic strips first then on to comic books.
