Isang interesting na article para sa seryosong papasok sa paggawa ng komiks:
Making The TimeChris Eliopoulos
"There’s a difference between an amateur and a professional. The amateur works when the mood strikes. The professional works." continue..
Sinagot naman ng isa pang comics creator na si Kevin Darmanie sa ScriptGraphicsArtPremier Yahoo Group:
"I agree, stop being a comic fan and start being an artist.
Invent projects to work on even when you are not expected to, and don't spend all year on it.
Forget making masterpieces and produce. It is the sophisticated beholder who determines the masterpiece and not you. Quit complaining that you need an inker, letterer, penciler or writer. If you can't complete a finished work of some sort by yourself then you are just a component of something else and not a full artist or writer.
Oh and writers, chill-out with the movie script format stuff, serious comic artists or directors look at that stuff and think to themselves, "I can do that! Why do I need him?" and yes, even in the professional world this happens. A great concept is fine, but can fall flat if you do not have the skills to execute it well.
And lastly, stop worrying about making a lot of work without a chance of being "discovered" , because it almost always happens that opportunity knocks on a Monday and the company, group or institution will want, ( and they seem to always want! ) the stuff you finished just last week, ready to go by Wednesday. You have to constantly produce. "
Sinagot pa ulit ni Dwayne Ferguson:
"Creating something is not rocket science and finding the time, when we all have the same 24 hours a day, is not that hard. To get what you want you have to know what you're willing to give up. Do you play your PlayStation 3 four hours a day? Not anymore you don't. Make it one hour. Watch 20 hours of TV a week? Not anymore, make it 6. No reason to eliminate the stuff you love to create comics or whatever it is you want to do. Just reduce the time
you spend on it.
I had knucklehead students who, when there was a 20 page paper to do, would play Final Fantasy...even skipping a few days of school to play the game. Guess where they are now? Good luck paying 30 grand in student loans on . Less fantasy, more reality. You can do anything you put your mind to, you just gotta sacrifice nonsense in
your life and get to work."
Sinabi na nilang lahat. Natutuwa lang akong basahin.
