Why I’ve taken so long in working on my Superman manga
It’s been 6 months since I published Chapter 0, which explains a part of the origins, and now I’m on the verge of finishing chapter 1, which begins 3 years later and Clark is in high school.
These screenshots are from the lineart phase, but I’m currently working on screentones and giving the final touches.
The worst struggle I’ve faced so far is finding TIME and establishing a proper continuity that lets me work on pages everyday. But my day job constantly kept piling up and up, and I was able to only draw on weekends which was frustrating.
No wonder Masami Kurumada said that Saint Seiya is autobiographical, that is about him facing the battles of everyday life, falling, being thrashed to a wall, trying to get up to continue drawing. Anyone who loves drawing manga can relate to this, because you either have to work, go to college, pay the bills, make ends meet and even if you were Japanese living in Japan, a mangaka is not exactly a high paying occupation, unless your name is Eichiro Oda, Tite Kubo or Masashi Kishimoto.
But you can be assured that I will continue working no matter what it takes and my artwork will keep improving as I work on the chapters, stay tuned and thank you for reading! ^^
