I'm finding it to run a webcomic entirely on my own. Like, I need at least one or two people to help lighten some of the load or do things that I can't do.
Before you reply and go, "I wish I could help, but..." - please don't say that. i've heard that all before and I know you've done all that you could. I appreciate it. Every little bit helps and that, enough, makes me smile.
What I mean is, I can't, like... do the webcomic, do the commissions, manage the websites, promote on youtube, promote on twitter, promote on whatever, make a wiki, get the webcomic reviews. This isn't a particularly fun job and I feel people I talk to about this either don't get it or they really don't care otherwise my frustrations with this kind of work.
Drawing is never the issue. Taking the steps I want to secure a fanbase is. There's some things I want and feel we can do, but every time I try to explain this to people-- why do people think I'm needy? Or why do people think I'm asking too much of them?
One of my commission clients wants to see big things in me and he feels he does, he's a really good friend-- but it comes off like he wants to promote his own needs and wants than my own. I don't want to be remembered for some furry commission comic involving certain things-- 'KUWT' is a series I want to get out there.
But I can't work with this client if when I'm trying to speak to him on a professional level and he keeps running out the door with his hands on his ears.
Like, does anyone see where I'm coming from?
