Build an outline, and write like 5 comics maybe in a span of two days. Then once a week, make another one, whilst also producing (in GIMP/Photoshop) the first comic you made. That way, you're producing one comic, while at the same time making the next week's script. 

 

It still takes work, but it frees up your schedule a little bit, and makes it easier for you to add and cut from the original script while actually producing the comic. 

And if you improve, you could try making two comics two days per week and then make that number higher till you're making daily strips. 

 

But that's if you choose to do it, and if you figure out making comics while having a life at the same time.  :o

 

Thanks for the advice! That actually sheds a lot of light. I'll try to figure out a schedule. I doubt it will be finite, because I'm pretty busy right now, but I can at least try to get one or two comics out a week, whilst planning for the next couple of comics.

EDIT: This comic will make more sense later on. It's a lead-in, if you will.

Nice background. Wonder who inspired it. :sly:

 

And thus the plot thickens. 

 

Hah, do you make this comic late at night?

Yes! First to comment!

@Comic 2: I've no problems with the lead in idea or the comic at all, however if you forced me to nitpick I would say the sprite positioning is off. For example: in panel 3 it looks like the picture is behind his hands and head and in panel 2 it seems as if the head sprite is in the back of the neck rather then the front, but that's just me nitpicking. :P (I'm not mocking you. I simply lighting the mood of this post :P.)

Keep up the good work!

The plot is super thin compared to what will happen next. ;)

 

I finished it at 10 pm, I think. :shrugs:

Yet sadly second. :P Close though.

 

Panel three was messed up, yeah. I just fixed it, though, so it should be edited now. :) As for panel two, meh, I see what you mean. I guess it's just a habit. Lots of people used to do the same thing. :P

 

Thanks! I sure hope I will!

I snuck into your house and stole your reply. 

 

Actually I have clue what you guys are talking about. 

 

Also Fun fact: that I actually like your background wall and floor a lot more than what I made back at my comics.

We're talking about an error in my second comic. I fixed it though.

 

I don't know. Our comics are in two different styles. I like yours, too. :)

When that painting lands, make sure it crumbles and catches fire.

That's actually the idea I had...but I decided to leave it to the viewer to choose what happened to the picture. :P

So I just saw the second comic. My Mata Nui, it is brilliant. So did you throw the picture on the ground? Or is that symbolic effect?

I know the feeling, yet at the same time, I'm often super lazy and procrastinate about life stuff. Ya' know, stuff that determines my future career and stuff. No biggie. :P

 

Hey, they're both le-matoran. Is this going to be a shounen-ai?

 

Nope. Reznas is male, whereas the other is female (more will be revealed about her later). I don't really follow Bionicle canon much in that sense.
