100 Things 008, 009 and 010  
So, I haven't done a 100 Things post in a while, and that's because I've been sort of working on a new project for the last few months.

The W Word - It begins

It begins

I decided that, since I got engaged, I'd like to start a comic journal just for that. And because having a livejournal doesn't scream OMGPAYATTENTIONTOMEEEE!! quite loudly enough for my tastes, I've... started a webcomic.

The W Word

Still getting bits for the website tweaked, but I've got posts lined up for the next couple of months. I'm quite pleased with myself, I've never had things so prepped before (of course I tried making webcomics in high school, who didn't? And they were all terrible). It's set to update Mondays and Fridays. At present, it's totally black and white, but maybe I'll get the hang of colouring or shading as I go along. I'm getting the hang of colouring on my tablet the more I practice, but at the moment it takes way too long to do for lots of comics. Practice practice practice!

So. Yeah. Ta-daaa!

Awesome! Will definitely be interested in seeing more. :)

Thanks! :) I've got a few more queued up already to auto-update. It's almost like I'm... *gasp* organised!

hahaha you threatened to be sick, that's hilarious!

Oh man, yeah. My stomach was in knots and when it looked like he was going to go down on one knee, I panicked! Haha, he was just reaching over to grab my hand though, so we're good.

That's so cool! I love it! Looking forward to more. (I also clicked on the next button three times before realising I had reached the most recent one lol)

Haha, yeah, that is the one downside with this particular host, that the next button reacts even when you're on the most recent comic. But the rest of it is so easy to use, it's a minor niggle!

I'm glad you like it! :D

THIS IS SO CUTE AND AMAZING! I'm so amazed by your drive and creative instinct. I didn't even know you drew!!! This is the most manic comment ever, but I'm so impressed.

Thank you! I used to draw so much in school, but it just sort of fizzled out when I got to university. Going to conventions got me wanting to draw again, and to create, and I really loved the Artists' Alleys, and particularly the little independent comics.

And when J proposed, I figured I'd finally found a subject matter and an angle that I could use, and make the most of the opportunity to express my thoughts on it all, and record it for posterity, but also to focus my work.

I'm hoping it'll give me a chance to practice too! I'm better than when I did my last couple of abortive attempts (oh god, one's still up) in high school, and getting more of a style, but I'm still far from being as confident and polished as I'd like! :)

I love it. I'll definitely have to keep following.
