Comic diary: A balance between light hearted fun and technical perfection

I always wondered what it takes to keep on working for a comic. Untill I was working on one. The first Witch Cat comic went quite fast without trouble, because I was thinking very light hearted about the progress and worked the same way. The second volume was more about thinking and doing the right things in order to get a more professional approach.

Now, with the third volume right now; I want to be so perfect as possible. This can be at times very frustrating and unforgiving, but I will in the end learn so much from it as well. So where do we have to draw the line? I think it's a balance between light hearted fun without being too precise and technical perfection. Archievement in learning and finishing the product will then go hand in hand much better.

As you can read, making something takes a lot from you as a skilled and experienced person. It's not like we're pulling these works straight out of our asses, for saying. It does not only take 'talent' but also hard work and dedication. Thus, respect for all comic creators and other hard creative workers! :)
