I have been drawing and writing mini stories since I was a kid, then since the age of 13 I attempted to be a writer like my mother however, I was gradually found that I didn't like just writing the words of my story but I wanted images to go with them too.
I started by I doing dumb comics and attempted mini stories here and there but my real desire to make a comic came after my 15th birthday. I decide that I would draw my own comics for a profession, just after my mom bought me my first Shojen Jump magazine. I was attracted to the Japanese comic style of drawing and storytelling, and it was just what I wanted to do.
Admittedly, I struggled for many years trying to make my first full written story that I didn't give up on. I started another after another, again and again, I have lost count how many I've started. Battling with depression and personal hardships through the years that gave me excuses, to place the blame on my lack of comic progress. It wasn't till the end of last year and beginning of this year I actually starting to own up to my lack of progress was due to laziness and my yearn for perfection.
If it was two things I learned your make your own time and push yourself to complete your project. If perfection is holding you back form completing a comic, then stop striving for perfection and attempt your best to your skills.
I often not able to release my comic on time but it doesn't meant I've stopped working on it every chance I get. I often find myself stopping myself when I feel that itch for perfection and telling myself it done don't touch it no more. XD
