Here’s a few of my pencil sketches of page 35 from Issue 1 of Glymyre Tales! See? I really am working on it! Doing the coloring today!
Whoa! 2018 has come and gone! It left me sixty years old and tired to the bone. Still, I learned a lot this past year, especially dealing with my work. I can now publish on Kindle, and run a webcomic almost completely free. To note some further accomplishments, I completed The GlymyreScape Player’s Manual and got a handle on the ‘Game Master’s Guide’! As the old year spirited away and vanished however, the new year bested its accomplishments on the third day. My new grandson was born, and that’s a pretty hard event to outdo. Yeah, I thank The Good Lord for all my grandchildren and consider them each a Blessing that I don’t deserve.
Believe it or not, I have been working on page 35 of Glymyre Tales. The drawing of each panel has been completed, and tomorrow I plan to do the coloring, shading and special effects. Hopefully, I can get a schedule going and produce a lot more work. We’ll see.
Yeah, I decided that was a better platform for a webcomic. WordPress dot com has a wonderful community (which is why I’m leaving my blog here), but it just isn’t very accommodating to webcomics. Here, the community is the strength. At blogger, it’s the ease and freedom of design. Even so, a serious drawback at blogger was the commenting system. It seemed a bit primitive, and I was a tad worried that it would discourage my readers from commenting until I discovered that you can install Disqus there. Disqus is a wonderful commenting service that easily fits the needs of a webcomic! Go check it out for yourself! Just click on this craftily crafted link! Oh! And don’t forget to leave a comment there and tell me what you think!
‘sigh’ I realized the other day that my themes for both my comics and blog have been retired. For my blog it’s not a big deal; as you can see I’ve changed the theme already. My comics are another matter however. Panel was the only theme designed specifically for webcomics and if I try to change it I’ll wind up with a webcomic having no comics and only a blog. Just a few weeks ago, I decided to go with wordpress over blogger because of the wonderful community here! Now they no longer have a theme compatible with a graphic novel format, and even if I customize one of the blog themes for my needs, I’ll still lose all my reader’s comments and have over 30 pages to repost. I’m afraid if I go back to blogger, I’ll lose the few readers I have. What do you folks think I should do? Would you follow “Glymyre Tales” if it moved to blogger? Let me know…
