How is the indie cartoonist/Animator/Writer/Comic Artist life going /co/?
>>
>>103506151
after 15 years trying, end of this month i will finally give up and get a real job.
>>
>>103506178
What did you work on during those 15 years?
>>
>>103506210
various things.
At first i tried to get a publisher to publish my work, which was impossible. Looking back on it, my work was indeed much much below average quality(though i still do think they should have realized the potential)
Then i did some commissions, which i quickly realized was not my thing.
So i went into self publishing, which however required more money and time than i could afford, thus it went back to commissions.
The commissions eventually hit off a bit when i went into fetish work for a specific genre, however it was one i wasn't into thus it was quite difficult getting into it.
While i was doing that, i tried to come up with different things to earn money via drawing without having to rely on porn, but all of those never hit off either.(like animation, videogame programming, videogame character modeling, or all of it together, various webcomics etc.)
And the porn fetish thing eventually hit a wall in terms of income, far below than one would need to survive.
And my day mini-job is closing next month, thus i decided this will be the final straw and give up and get a normal job.

I will still try afterwards, but more as a hobby than seriously going after it.

I think after I finish my Bachelor's I'll just fucking study Linguistics or some shit then get some cozy office job.

It might be my depression talking but recently animation and graphic design in general has been very overwhelming. I'm not even out on the "real world" yet.

I'll keep drawing and writing stories as a hobby, of course.

Protip" These things are all hobbies. There are some exceptions, but the vast majority of people doing them need a regular professional career during the day to pay the bills, even if they're wildly successful at indie comics. Most very successful people working in indie comics could never make a living at it, and those who do, sometimes only for a little while.

Have a regular career, too, even if you can count on being a "name."

My goal is to get to ~$300/mo on Patreon, which is the point where it covers my artist fees and I'm no longer losing money on the hobby. My main problem is that I don't shill my comic, Saffron and Sage, enough on social media to grow some traffic to the web site saffroncomic.com. I also somewhat badly need some site design work done on my website, saffroncomic.com, which you can see on saffroncomic.com

Ahem

On the plus side, I've been accepted to get a story in the next SpiderForst anthology, so as long as I can actually write the damn thing I'll be a published print author by this time next year. Making progress! Slow, painful, sometimes backwards progress!

>>103506178

Five years of dedicated hustling and I'm there with you anon.

Overall, I've crapped out comics here and there since 2000. I tried getting after it with the easier to use image platforms, but after five years of drawing, spending cash on drawing supplies, and even several convention tables - I had to throw in the towel too.

Drawing is fun, but I don't want to draw (CURRENT MOVIE MEME CHARACTERS) to get useless social media likes which never translate to folding money.
>>
>>103507082
I have no sympathy whatsoever for people who got turned down because of their "personality" because there's some pretty abrasive and unlikeable people out there who still managed to get published, which means that these obnoxious little pricks managed to keep their nastiness in check at the right times, but people like (You) want everything handed to you on a silver platter, so everyone else should suck it up and ignore whatever shit baggage you bring, all because you see yourself as some sort of genius who deserves preferential treatment.

The beard and fashion statement in that image are pretty relatable.

After finishing up freelance work for Nick little over a month ago, I've been mainly focusing on a personal project (short) of mine. I thankfully made enough from my freelancing gig to not have to work for a bit, but that hasn't stopped me from looking for work.

Might have a possible gig lined in the next two weeks, but it's still up in the air; also happened to do a few commissions recently, but nothing spectacular.

On top of finishing boards/animatic for my short (still gotta tweak with some audio jokes) and preparing to animate with one of my partners next week, I'm also waiting on two big things: my best friend's pilot and hopefully being one of the finalists in a studio program.

Hoping that my recent experience will push me through, but we'll see. My bestie's pilot, which I've been vaguely hinting at for the past year or so on here, is close to done; really can't wait for all y'all to see it. I designed the logo, props, the antagonist, a few BGs, and other elements for it.

>>103507343
>but I don't want to draw (CURRENT MOVIE MEME CHARACTERS) to get useless social media likes which never translate to folding money

You're going to hate hearing this, but social media likes absolutely DO translate into money, you just have to know how to establish and then cultivate a following... And yes, that inevitably DOES mean following trends. Simply put, drawing what people are already looking at is the best way to get your work in front of their eyes. If they like what they see, they'll want more, especially if you have a really high rate of output.

I know it sounds soulless, like I'm advocating that you "sell out" or something, but that's the nature of the beast, especially now. If you want to make money doing what you love, you have to be willing to play the social media game and play it well.
>>
>>103507441
Well if you're going digital, then that's easy. Hold the shift key. If not then practice that SHOULDER motion. Draw from your shoulder, not your wrist. Stand up with an easel and a drawing pad, and draw. Peter Morhle told me something along the lines of "get your first thousand crappy drawings out of the way first before worrying about your good ones."
>>
>>103506151
Going pretty well. My webcomic pays my bills just fine, with enough left over to tuck away into a savings account.
>>
>>103507350
>>103507290
okay, i guess i will take the bait after all and explain myself

back then i was quite into manga. Obviously i did a lot of researched of how they do things in japan. Because, you see, in japan they actually have editors that take note of talented amateurs. Even if they may suck at the present, if they have potential(potential, a person may suck but could be turned into something better) they will take them under their wing. Tell them what they need to work on and try again later on.

And i was hoping the same would happen here.

I didn't say i was a "genius" or they didn't like my "personality". And i did say i continued to improve on my own after that.

I studied my own, japan, america, france and overall. And it was at a time where the manga boom started and the publishing company i mentioned was the forerunner in my country during that time, however they kept everything really in the dark on how they do thing. Basically their approach was literally "Just send us your manuscript" nothing more nothing less.

Why do you guys assume just because someone says keywords like "hope" or "potential" that he is a complete idiot who just wants everything handed to him?

The truth is you do need to shill and sell out as hard as possible for even a chance to make $$$, but that's not a life for most people, especially if, God forbid, you ever want to have a family or even just not live with a ton of roommates.

Even if you hit a spectacular year, a dry spell of several years is possible after that.

The only people I know in this for the long haul basically do graphic design and animation for companies (websites/commercials) and also know computer programming and other shit. Even some of them struggle, but they basically make various kinds of commercials and ads and have at least some "hard" skills to go with it and/or are really good with people and more into the marketing world. Even people I know who have made a great living for a while have at least faded back to bills paying shit doing art for video games, apps, or similar shit. Remember: on Patreon, you could make $100,000.00 one year (not likely) and then never raise more than a few hundred or thousand again and be living on less than minimum wage.

I know everyone says this but get a STEM degree and do this in the evenings unless you're going all in with all the skills for real commercial art and design. Unless you have connections and/or getting into one of the very biggest programs like CalArts and have the people skills to make big connections.
>>
>>103508905
There's literally an established animation studio not even a few blocks from where I live. I'm probably going to end up working there in off seasons to build up some funds during dry spells, and maybe some part time manual labour since pure office work is a drag. Office space seems like a completely unnecessary waste when every artist I know is online and has their own equipment in the first place, it's just a luxury I'd like to work towards.
While that studio is nearby, it seems they mostly bankroll on projects from out of state, so it couldn't hurt to check around for local commercial stuff. Though it seems like getting into videogame assets and animation for independent projects is more lucrative these days depending on the type of contract.

I feel that. I'm not gonna make it in this industry. People don't give a shit about the comics I make. Too niche and too personal. I don't have any other skill though. And I can't do another college loan. Still paying off the last one. To make things worse my editors want me to turn my comic into a soft baby comic where nobody gets hurt or even stays mad for more than several pages. Maybe I can be a drifter.
>>
>>103506151
Ironically, had to quit making comics because work picked up too fast (programming + art) even though I was getting about $100 per page from my following.

I still want to go back bros. Maybe I'll make a comic when I'm old and regretting my youth life choices.

I find this misleading. The Internet is flooded with lots of bright and talented artists, the problem lies in the industry being too cheap and insular. Everything is in New York or California with nothing in between to support people who don't live on the coast.

There's also corporate wanting the cheapest thing possible, professional cartoonist being manchildren, and now women being corporate shills that makes getting into the industry not worth it.

It's all in the execution.
If you draw like the tumblr flavor of the month, of course you'll have a hard time getting commissions.

But, if you can draw reasonable well and give your art a "classy" feel (subject matter notwithstanding) people will pound money into your nearest convenient orifice to in the hopes you will make something that gives them the tinglies.

>>103509498
So do it, make it safe and marketable. Then when you actually work on this garbage enough and have the money fund your passion series and make what you truly want. There are many big artists out there who go this route so that they can make their dream happen even if not directly.

Let me tell you straight: no one is going to give you money for animation. Period. There are many still active animators who have millions of views a video (example piemations, 2.5 million subs). His patreon? A measly $750.

The kind of people who are watching your cartoons are modern kids who have 0 patience en masse to wait for anything. They are not gonna be contributing to your patreon because you take too long to produce anything, and adults think cartoons are too childish. The only way youd make it that way is if you do storytime aids (where youre getting money via the youtube not patreon), or infographic stuff that adults watch (and since its educational support).

I have two webcomics, one started a couple of years ago as about 2000 plus readers, the more recent one 200+. Both sometimes show up here on /co without my input, which is nice. I have a third project in the work I will release next month.
I have the blessing of an acceptably steady job, and I draw basically every single moment I'm not there.
My biggest issue is shilling, because I really suck at it and I feel somewhat uncomfortable doing it, but with the next project rolling, I'll push harder on that. Also, I have a problem that I don't want to do commissions or requests (something that would probably get my art around more), because I want to focus on my own stuff.

Well. Scott Robertson's book starts with literally that. But it's way too advanced for a newbie.

Truth is that most can't do straight lines. That shit is difficult. It's better to try to live with the crooked line at the start and let it get better naturally while you practice other art stuff.
And I know it's something of a meme by now, but if you want to get going. Check out Loomis Fun with a pencil, and do the exercises. Also remember to have fun with it. It's a good resource if you're completely new.

For certain definitions of "high quality". It's like hamburgers. If you make McDonald's which is cheap and easy you'll get an audience. If you make a complex but delicious steak people will scream at you to make it cheaper and easier and like McDonald's.

If you can put on pants you can get work. You don't have to earn a living doing what you love, work doesn't have to be miserable if it's not your passion. Just find something you can do that feels productive, even if it's something simple. Work is half about the people you work with, so if you can find a decent to slightly dull job with good co-workers you'll be pretty well off.

Damn dude $100 per page is awesome! Could you post your work?
I’m only making $20 per page and it’s soul crushing

Ah, the wise kids on 4chan, teaching themselves and others to be inhuman gits.

Business as usual then,

Not every shitty job has shitty people working there. If you're in a bad geographic location and there's literally nothing else I can't say for certain, but I know that there are other places in the country that need workers, and some jobs can be done online if relocating is too much. Either way you're better off than being dead.

I'm a writer funding my first comic. My first issue is almost done and I'm excited and TERRIFIED at the same time.

Once I'm done with the first issue, I'm buying convention tables and speaking with publishers. My dream is to get my completed product published by Image or Black Mask, then continue to do indie work while writing my dream stories for the big two.

Here's the cover of my first issue without text! Lemme know what ya think.

I'm making a lot of money on fetish stuff.

My parents can't even complain because I'm being paid a shitload of money to work 4 hours a day and wake up at 10AM.

I also work 56 hours a week as an EMT in NYC to support payment for my artist.

>never translate to folding money.
Just do porn commissions. It's a good chunk of money with a minimal amount of shilling once you get the ball rolling. Fucking never goes out of style.

Pal, a critical mentor would have shredded you like wet tissue paper.
You wouldn't even be able to draw for fun anymore.

My artist is more concerned with fixing his truck than drawing.

>dude lmao how come you haven't written the 3rd issue yet
Because you havent drawn squat yet

I'm still in college but I'm using every moment of free time to work on a novel. I at least want to finish the first draft by the time I'm 24 (22 now). I'm constantly buying reference books for things on the occult and life cycles of various insects since that's what the novel is about. I also pick up the occasional guide on decent storytelling even if it's just covering basics.

How do you survive Manhattan Traffic? It's gotten worse due to the pedestrian plazas, retarded Tourists, and Uber cabs.

Do you ever have to deal with the homeless?
>>
>>103513809
Aw shiiiit. I'm stationed in Brooklyn with FDNY, but I drop peeps off at Presby, Cornell, and Sinai sometimes. What about you?
>>
>>103511288
Never going to work. People just want you to make battle Shonen at best, or full blown porn for free. Some fucks will try to get sneaky and make fraudulent charges
>>
>>103514358
I deal with the homeless EVERY DAY! Usually belligerent drunks that bleed our taxpayers and crowd our hospitals. It's pretty frustrating, but I do my best to be empathic with them.

I'm usually in Brooklyn, and it's just as shitty out here. There's at least two or three double parked cars on every one way street, and getting an ambulance past that is not fun.

(Btw, my post is directly above my prior reply, if you want to check out the artwork for my first issue's cover!)

I'm in Greenwich Village, right where the line is clear between the poor and rich in the city.

Havent read sheldon since like ‘11 or ‘12
is it still good? Is it still running?

Bad. I can't find any fucking job, i don't have a network at all, and my followers numbers are growing too slowly, so it's not like the situation will change any time soon.
Seriously considering dropping out of it, and getting some handling or cashier job.
>>103508532
Kinda true. Once you've done porn it'll never go from your "resume". And there is always one person to discover your identity if you weren't using the same nickname.

Nice! If you're at Lenox, you have some really cool looking facilities. Are ya working on anything /co/ related?

"High quality" on funnyjunk is the equivalent to Wendy's compared to the normal Walmart McDonald's. If you have a mediocre comic and post in the oc-comic-creators channel regularly, you'll get a following gaurenteed. At some point you'll graduate to people making nigger edits, then you'll know you've made it there. Of course, you'll eventually get a hate-base if you get too big, so try not to have thin skin. If you're a girl however, you'll get a league of white knights, so you won't have to worry about that.

that's what you should have done from the start. you probably could have made a more worthwhile and genuine portfolio

Well, shit, now I gotta try it.

Gave up long time ago still trying somewhat in a way but it's more of if it happens great! if it doesn't well okay.I'm still studying animation(and visual effects) at college but my goal is to learn how to use 3d/AE/ect to make furry porn good enough to make myself a patreon
maybe will go to the comic route once i get faster at drawing.

Don't get the cashier job unless it's a supermarket. People are full blown retarded and will try to haggle you for free shit.
