death vigildue to unforseen technological and health problems death vigil 7 has been late... as you may have noticed.nebezial
issue will be finished tomorrow
but that will mean about 30 more days till it hits the stores... i can't have that.
so tomorrow... i will put the future of my comic in your hands
i will post it online.
sales have been steadily dropping so ... i guess it can't get much worse. and i don't want my readers and fans who supported the book to
have to wait any more. book will be printed and published. and if you want to buy and support it still, i will appreciate it of course.
but i refuse to let everyone wait for 30 more days.
best ways to keep up with me!so i recently realized i like twitter.shiniez
i like it for the fact that it keeps all the updates under notices. it's limit of size for messages helps us all keep our questions and thoughts concise, and it's easy to follow up on stuff
so, if you want a quick and easy way to ask questions, and keep updated add me
@stjepansejic on twitter
you can also add me on facebook , but that thing is a mess
i would like to reply all the questions here, but with the sheer amount of works, and galleries and notes it is getting really hard to follow up on things.
so it is an easy way to get any answers you may be after.
now, as for chapter 5, i will start it off in march, but it won't go full speed before mid april. by that point i will have cleared all the previously accepted projects and past that point i won't be taking on more work for hire stuff because... well, your support made it possible to actually focus
my current comic worknebezial
okay so i keep getting questions on my current stuff , how and where to get them, so if you are one of the people who asked, this is my answer
my comicwokrk currently consists of 3 basic branches of work
writing and art done by me
art done by me
and covers done by me
before we get to the books themselves i would like to offer bit of an insight for anyone interested in getting their own stuff out there.
i am not covering crowdfunding as i personally stay clear of it.
this is a bunch of experiences i had, and since i got through this and am now doing fine, i thought some might find them useful
now, as i work predominantly for independent companies, my work can be a bit hard to get.
reason for this is a simple one. comic book stores buy their supplies from diamond. the main distributor.
they buy stuff they know will sell. comics aren't a huge profit business so they have to choose the winners on their own.
it is a ha
Aethel's Approach to Commissioning ArtistsI have received a lot of positive feedback from artists I've worked with about their experiences with me as a client. It’s something I work really hard at. I am fairly discerning about the quality of art that I’m interested in paying for, and frankly a lot of the artists I am fortunate enough to commission could (and in many cases do) fill their plate with as much professional work as they would care to take on. Only by their good graces do they continue to do work for little old you and me.aetheldeviant
I wince a little every time I hear about a bad experience they've had with personal commissioners. I think: “oh no, is that going to be the one that makes them decide we are too much of a pain to deal with and they will just work for professional companies now?” If there is not something about taking personal commissions that artists like better, they won't do it. And since I know I sure can't offer them more money than they would make with pro work, I had better make it up
Titillation vs. SexismBoobs.jollyjack
Guys are fascinated by them.
Through single-digit ages, they find the very concept of them hilarious, and when puberty kicks in the mere thought of lady-lumps generally causes some movement in the trouser department. These weak-willed creatures will follow them anywhere and they will do almost anything if it means simply being permitted to gaze upon them for a few moments more.
The entertainment industries, from the big movie makers to the lowly art whores (like me) know this, and have played upon it for years in order to separate males from their money. As a result, mass media is awash with the female form in all manner of provocative poses and dress.
Many women are fed up with this, but is the whole thing “sexist”?
Well, it’s impossible and indeed wrong to say a whole industry is one thing or another. Ultimately it’s all one, big, dumb organism that simply moves with the cultural winds. It perpetuates what sustains it. It’s only when you break it
