Webcomics are projects that take a long long time to complete, often many years. Sustaining interest in a project like that over such a long time is real challenge. Life, money, health, and simple boredom can all conspire against you. How do you overcome these obstacles and keep your eyes on your goal?
In the first part of the episode, Ewa of Bits Fair interviews Katherine Jameson, creator of Age of Clay, about her experiences working on a webcomic she had all scripted out before she started drawing it, about the ways she redefined what the project was about as the time went on, and how she brought the comic to its conclusion.
In the second part, Mathieu Moyen of 6-Commando leads a roundtable discussion between Sophie Pfrötzschner (Soul’s Journey), Kristen Kiomall-Evans (XII: Of Magic and Muses) and Jen Zyren Smith (LaSalle’s Legacy) about how they script their stories, how they motivate themselves to keep going, and the importance of not leaving one’s audience hanging.
