Drawing a SORROWBACON Webcomic

By November 25, 2015 11 Comments

I planned to write about my writing progress this month, but I’m enjoying the process so much that I’m going to enjoy it a bit more before dishing. So here’s a video of me drawing and painting a SORROWBACON comic strip instead. The completed comic is here.

I started experimenting with longer comic stories (more than five panels, as is my usual) and more “honest” narratives. “Honest” is in quotes because I’m still not sure if that’s the right term. It’s hard to be honest in storytelling without being vulnerable first, and being vulnerable is still something I’m working on, in both my everyday life and in my writing/webcomic life.

We don’t often see how content creators make things, so I thought this video, along with an old post I wrote on making a webcomic from ideation to execution, can fill in these gaps for those who are curious.

The drawing/painting/scanning/editing/uploading process actually took around three hours, though it felt like it lasted as quickly as the two minute video. Time passes quickly when you’re having fun!

Hope your November is going well. To all the NaNoWriMo writers—hang in there! Just five more days until you’re finally able to get some precious shut-eye.
