Polterguys Update and Commissions OPEN
Polterguys rewrites are almost done
Polterguys is moving along at its glacial pace. Every time I feel like I’m not moving fast enough, I try to remember that this is my first time writing a major project like this. If a 34-page oneshot like Final Track was rewritten no less than three times, I need to cut myself some slack and give this the time it deserves. I’ve honestly lost track which draft I’m in at now. But I am taking heart that the people Nate and I have shown these to seem to think certain elements are improving.
I think it’s easy for beginning artists to see everyone else busting out comic pages week after week and forget that behind each fantastic update is a lot of preparation done beforehand. After all, a wonderful comic is 50% story and stories (the best of them anyway) don’t come to storytellers fully-formed and ready-to-go. I can only think of PIXAR and the amount of time they dedicate to developing their stories (4-6 years compared to the 2 years it takes them to produce the actual film.) Patience is the name of the game!
I try to stay positive despite the ever-present worry about not being quick enough for the rest of the world. But I do have my personal deadlines and I’m giving myself enough breathing room to do things thoroughly the first time through.
