Happy Turkey Day, Tofurkey Day, whatever you prefer
Hard to be happy right now so I'm thankful to even be able to make this post.
Been a hard year overall for most, and many harder than others maybe.
So ... chin up I guess.
Even if that sounds insensitive. Maybe I'm just making a selfish wish.

I'm thinking of publishing a webcomic at some point. There are a few options I know of and I want to know if anyone else has any advice on which platforms are better.
Tapas- Seems very creator-friendly, but less exposure than Webtoons.
Deviantart- Kinda not friendly to small artists I think? I'm not too sure about it's compatibility with comics per se
Newgrounds- Due to the one-page format, it's not particularly good for multiple page content. But I like that it is clear cut on ownership and I love the community here. It's probably compatible for one-page comics or series if you don't mind one-page submissions/updates
Lezhin- No idea about this one... Haven't checked it out.
So, does anyone have suggestions and experience with this? Does publishing on multiple platforms work better? Thanks for any anticipated feedback.

This quarantine seems to have driven some into self-loathing ("I never thought I could hate myself this much" someone said).
For me, I kinda got more comfortable with being alone. And then I started thinking I didn't need much of anyone else. Electronic exchanges get a bit annoying now and I sometimes get overly sensitive communicating through even the screen. And gods forgive me if someone mentions coming over. I now have negative tendency towards hospitality...
I'm not sure if this is just a self-revelation. I had issues in the past as it was. Now they create revulsion even from my former close circles.
I wonder if it's just something that may pass.

The hell is with this. I've read the manga and it's currently about to end.
But my goodness, up til the very end...
WHY IS THE WHOLE STORY BASICALLY JUST JOJO'S BIZARRE ADVENTURE PART 1???
I mean seriously:
-Breaths, full focus, all like the Ripple/Hamon
-Bad guys obsessed with eating humans and being young
-A near sacrificial ending where the BBEG tries to take the MC's body
And everything else is the sprinkles that differentiates it. But the core is so similar, and I can't get over the breathing thing.

Can't work from home because the boss person is old-school and picky about computers.
So, I've been trying to work on other things to be productive or at least decrease the amount of stress that's been building from life.
-Classwork (online) has been going swell... save for missed high fives in group work
-Learning coding online has been on my bucket list for so long but I can't seem to even make it past HTML
-Writing. This is going well at least.
-Drawing. As therapeutic as it gets.
-Keeping fit isn't too hard when you have critters that keep you on your toes. Not as good as a gym but, oh well.

It comes around every now and then, and very often, that feeling of hopelessness and inferiority.
As an artist, I am very underdeveloped compared to even newbies in digital art. Heck, that's why I don't even give myself the artist label here. And you know what?
I'm not gonna give a hoot.
I'll just keep doing as I do and truck along, drawing on my own and improving as I have for over 10 years.
Because feeling down about it and moping never got me where my skill is today, even if it isn't much. I moped and I just kept going.
So, to all the people who ever felt as I do, keep going.
Just some spiel I had to get off my chest.

So... how does it work? I figure you set up a paypal or venmo or something right? What about delivering the art (if hard copy), or posting it as a submission (even though its a commission)? It's odd. I've seen commissions submitted yet I know zilch about the process.
