Courtney here, and good news: I've been demolishing Sweet Beat pages like mad, I'm ahead of schedual and that makes me so happy.
The other day, I felt like I wouldn't be able to make the deadline of May 7th. Then I remembered why I wanted to draw this comic: I want to be among the people I admire. It's a bit selfish I know, but I want to show the ones I admire what I can do. I bet it'd be really impressive if a couple of teenagers could have a table at the convention and had a 52 page, full color book. The story itself most likely won't last more than about 30-35 pages. I've got up to twenty five pages right now, not all finished mind you, but getting there. There's gonna be like, the rest of the pages we have in bonus material and fun stuff, so I'm excited to get started on that.
I'd also like to say that recently I had a phase where I was feeling insecure about my art. Like, it was nothing but 'anime' art and no one wanted to see it. Then, after a while of being emo, I was like: "You know what, if they didn't wanna see it, then don't look. There's always someone who wants to see my art." Then I was like *^* GOOOOOOOOOOO ARTTTTTATTTACK!!!! And so I did.
I'm just really buckling down for this, it'll be my first convention where I'm at a table selling stuff. I'm also thinking about selling at a con that I was reluctant to have a table at before. I don't wanna miss anything like panels or... meals. But there are times when there's just nothing to do. So I'm on the fence but I think I'm going to be selling at a con soon.
I don't even know if anyone reads these, but there here.
