Heya! I have a few things I can share!
For Advice (more comic based):
1) Write a story You'd like to read, following the trends isn't useful because trends change fast and you won't be invested in your product. plus you won't stand out in a pool of similar things.
2) Don't get stuck in 're-draw fever', showing art progression is good! as long as every page within one episode looks consistent and not done in different mediums (A rookie mistake I made and fixed) then it's probably fine
Questions: Any tips on how to promote my comic on and/or off the forums? So far my attempts at self promotion seem to have fallen mostly flat.... I've been under 50 subs for 2 and 1/2 years
Lastly, heres a link to my comic, its got modern fantasy, mystery, and slice of life!
