Hello, everyone!

So, if you read my last journal entry (a few decades ago), you might remember (or not) that I was struggling with life in terms of getting things done. Much have changed so far, maybe living one year in the United States improved me as a human being :D Fact is, my first chapter ever finished of a webcomics is done and online! And I'm so proud of it, it looks cool for a beginner. 

It's called Tales of a Curse, and you can check it here  and follow on Facebook  and twitter for updates.

How did I do it? I don't know. I'm still learning about the forces that pushed me through all the process to get the first step completed. And people are not kidding when they say the first step is always the hardest, but once you start moving it gets better. Now I kind of have a notion of how long it takes to do everything, I have a "happy path" to follow in order to get a chapter done and up (I've been reading heaps about story telling, character creation and comics scripting). Easy? No. Quick? No. Good? Far from good. But I can say that I got something done, and compared to what I had a month ago I've improved a lot. 

Now I'm trying to log every little step I make in order to improve my process. How much I take to write a chapter, review it, make it interesting. How long it takes me to sketch a page, how long it takes to ink one. How many hours I take to shade one page on GIMP, to paint a page I wanna colored. I think it will take time until I get it all smooth and easy, but now I have something to improve upon, and when I see the pages in the Tumblr website and people who tell me how it's nice it motivates me to keep going.

So yeah, my advice for you is: DO IT. Just do it. 

I know I'll find negative feedback (in fact I had it before uploading something, when I was showing my friend an idea), but it's a chance to improve your work and the most important thing is just do. You'll get nowhere without that first step, so you better stop finding excuses and do it.
