Hi there, my name is Ann (Marigo on the internet) and I thought I'd introduce myself before I ask a question in the other forums!
I am a budding comics creator, albeit planning to do a seven issue short series (already working and a freelance editor of late). It will be my second comic, since my first try was a web comic that I ended up abandoning due to a combination of life and self-sabotage.
I want to avoid such a mistake again, though I also want to make shorter comics too.
I am primarily an artist, though I am struggling to share my stuff online better. I am thinking of setting up either a Wix or Squarespace site so I can host my artwork there, from sketches to finished illustrations and even comics I choose to make available to read for free. I have already finished two art commissions, so a website would be better. I do have Instagram and Twitter, though it feels as if literally just one person seems to see or respond to any art I put up on the latter. At least I have one fan, though all the same it feels disheartening that only one person seems to notice what you've shared, no matter how many times you retweet.
I don't go on live streams to promote myself for personal reasons, though I'm aware I might need to reconsider or at the very least compromise somehow in future. Part of why I don't do a lot of promotion is because of imposter syndrome, which I am working on getting over.
So that's part of my introduction right there and I hope to share a lot of art and comics with you all very soon, on my journey to grow and develop as a creator in my own right.
