I am working on one of the most exciting illustration projects of my life. Unfortunately there is no money in it for me which I find is often the case with things that I enjoy!
I have had this story in my head for a very long time now and right from the beginning I knew that the best way to tell it would be in comic book style. But since I had never done comics before in my life, I was having a few problems with the whole thing. However a couple of days ago a breakthrough happened and suddenly it all came together and so I could finally get started on the fun bit which is doing the drawings.
I thought it might be a good idea to post this project on here as I go along and hopefully improve it from your feedbacks.
I’m hoping to have the first instalment ready by tomorrow or the day after. Fingers crossed.

PS I’m sorry friends but since I have dedicated all my time to this story lately, I haven’t had much time to visit other blogs. Please post some of your less interesting stories for the time being and keep your good stuff for a bit later. Thank you for your cooperation.

There's a lot of software out there specifically for people who want to create online comics, and tons of places that dedicated to hosting said comics. Let me know if you are interested and I'll send you a few links.

I believe in you my friend, you're gonna be great, I know this for sure, more than sure! Just remember this: You are the boss, you decide what is good or bad; we are all just readers, our only job is to thank you for what you do for us. OK?
P.S. Of course readers have the right to suggest sometimes, but that's all!

Thanks Asad yes I’d love to have a look at some online comics. Please send me the links if it’s not too much trouble.

Gazankhan thanks a lot. I’m sure you can understand exactly how excited I am as you must get the same feeling yourself as well with your stories. So far I have finished three pages :-)

Hi Dr O2 :-) So what kind of comics does this student of yours like then?

Dr O2 said...

he is a commis monster as he pus it ;-) he loves all kinds and also draws fantastic ones!! has made one with me as the main charecter!! has ones of Rostam, Captain Arian(himself as a comic charecter), loads & I mean loads of other topix with fantastic drawings. He just makes them for himself as his comix don fit the regulations in Iran as he has a tendency to draw women like they are drawn in US comix ;-)
