So to simplify, at a page a day it would take me 210 years to complete the whole story.
Of eating ass? You're not missing much
I hope this means that you'll go into scriptwriting and write the next Repo Man script (Repo Gal does not count and should be destroyed).It does seem sad, but you gotta do what you gotta do sometimes. I respect that you're putting your family first. Now to get off my ass and read the comic from beginning to end.
...Are you Kentaro Miura?

So I'm going to stop making my comic The Devon Legacy. I'm always split between which hobbies I want to do. MUGEN and my comic. My comic is my bigger passion. But it's just not sustainable as a hobby that I can find enjoyment now that I have a family and less time.When I was single and worked on it that's pretty much all I did. It was my life. I was thinking about story or writing or practicing my art or making actual pages. That's about it.Now for almost this entire year I have been working on the comic again. Under the idea that even if it's just 1 page a week I am at least still living my hobby and progressing the story.But the limited amount of time is making it too stressful. I worry just to meet my deadline. I am not enjoying it now as each page feels like it's work and since I'm not getting a lot of drawing practice either through making more pages or random practice sketches my art is simply not improving and the pages are feeling HARDER to make each day....Thanks for the read. Just needed to air out!
why don't you just do it in black and white man, I do only in pencil too, even manual on paper scanned. well I haven't gotten time or fluent enough in making script so I work mainly as illustrator of someone else's script as commission projects...so I kinda feel the burnt in doing it everyday.
I wouldn't say it has to be laid to rest, but it has to be put on hibernation right now.Your family is young, and this is the point in your life where you need to treasure the moments with them. Watch your kid grow up, enjoy time with your wife.Once the kid hits his teens, you will find yourself with more time to continue your comic endeavours. He will have other priorities in life, and will have enjoyed with childhood with quality time with his daddy.Keep on practising, though. Draw a page here and there when you feel the urge, just to not get rusty, write down the story you want to tell, revise it, save it.In ten years time you will have the time and most likely motivation to go back to it at full pace.And good luck with your mugen endeavours too.
I'm going to let god handle you people ✞
