Webcomic is like a pet critter…

…you have to take care of it, nurture it, feed it. I’ve been publishing Sky Rover for almost two months and that is what I learned. It’s not a bad thing! Not at all. It’s quite interesting and very rewarding, but beware. It’s like having a second job or a pet. And this pet requires you to learn many new non-artistic skills in order for him to stay alive. Skills such as:

  • Web design
  • Self promotion (Yes! This is definitely a skill. Some people are way better at it than others)
  • Web advertisement
  • Book design and book printing (ISBN you said?)
  • Twitter etiquette (honestly, for years, I didn’t know what was the fuss about that #)

Even though I just started publishing my pages, this adventure started more than a year ago. It’s been a big year of learning.

Any of you here also have a webcomic? What is the skill that was found to be most useful? Let’s talk!
