things I’ve been thinking about
-OCs who don’t know what’s going on with their gender/sexuality. there’s representation in shared labels, but also in shared “I don’t know why I feel this way about what I am or who I like, sometimes I don’t even know what I feel about those things”. or at least there is for me, haha, so this might be a little selfish???
-on the same lines as “don’t wait until you’ve ‘gotten good enough’ to start making your dream project”, don’t think people won’t like it if the art is a mess at the beginning. so many big webcomics have made their start with grobbly lines and a color palette right out of the MS paint default colors, and then, by dint of regular updates and just being online to read, developed an extremely loyal and passionate fandom. and that stuff will carry with you into your next project! so by all means, please, make the thing. I am cheering for you.
-if there isn’t a “look at the first/most recent page of these big-name comics” compilation out there I’ll make it myself!!
