Becoming a published comic artist is a dream a lot of people have. You can share your imagination and your craft with others and if you make a living out of it, then you would call it a perfect job. Spending your day creating new adventures in exotic worlds and record your thoughts on paper, you are your own boss with all benefits and problems that comes with it. The best part of it is you need only paper, pencil, an idea and a gargantuan amount of passion and persistence – So as any job, if you want to do them well. Are there any downsides of becoming a publishing comic artist, a creator of drawn stories? Probably there are some, but it is a dream I would like to achieve. I am @TComicMan and in this series I will share how I plan to become to be a published comic artist step by step, week by week.
Like the legendary Jedi said in a galaxy far away: β€œdo or do not, there is no trying.” And so I will take my journey to become a publishing comic artist seriously and will plan my steps carefully. I believe this is a very hard, a near impossible task to do, because it is very complex. First you have to have a story, an art style that complements the plot, then you have to find a publisher and somehow build an audience that is willing to pay for your work. Because of the complexity and volume of the task I thought about how to make it simpler, so that I am not overwhelmed with the job at hand and give it up. Here are the four basic subdivisions in form of questions I came up with:

1. What do I want to do? 2. What do I want to achieve? 3. What do I need to do to achieve my goals? 4. How do I get better in what I do?

The first step will be to think about oneself. It is the foundation for every future endeavour and the most important step to get started and to keep going. Of course these questions are just suggestions on how I can get started. Most probably these question are not ideal. It is likely that not every aspect of becoming a publishing artist is covered but nevertheless I will answer this questions for myself and I will share the result in the next part. Of course if I get into difficulties and problems that I will have to solve somehow I will share them too. I truly believe achieving one’s goals is about improving oneself and solving problems. Let us take the first step.

The simplicity of landscape paintings
By
Vimmbox

Landscapes are an important part of not only paintings but of all media in the arts. As an artist I think it is important to learn and to understand the fundamentals of a good landscape painting or photograph. Even if you paint portraits, there is a lot to learn from painting landscapes.
