Would you buy it?

I find myself sitting upon tons of uninked comics of varying subjects. The question is, if I were to ink, letter, tone etc. all of them and actually publish them somehow, would you or somebody you know actually buy them? I have the opportunity to maybe do this next year through Jarlidium, but won't do it unless there is enough interest.

From the number of comments I've seen on your posts, I'd say you have a very decent following.

But the fact of the matter is, by not having an FA account anymore, your ability to advertise by posting something new every week is probably compromised. I began following you on the higher-trafficed FA, and only got an inkbunny account because it's a better service, not because it's more popular. If I didn't watch you here, I wouldn't have known you were exclusively here now. I'm glad I'm still hooked into the higgs-awesome machine, but numbers are numbers.

And on a related note, let me say that I continue to post to transfur for 2 reasons despite their continued intolerance for "sketchy" and "disgusting" art: #1, I get negative feedback there. I think it's important to stay humble, and be able to take criticism. #2 it's very popular. I get thousands of views there on every picture I post.

FA and DA are very popular. To continue to be hooked into the furry community, it's important to have a presence on these places, despite criticism and hardship. Probably.

Unless you're getting the same views here on inkbunny that you were on FA, DA, and any other image galleries you posed to combined. Then never mind. You're doing fine.

Whether or not I buy it isn't important. (I wouldn't, because I'm struggling to live on my own art business. But I'd be very tempted!) The important factor is # of views. Well, # of views is important *before* you put it out for selling. The *real* factor is # of purchases after you put it out for selling.

Long story short, do it. Make one comic and put it up for sale. Mention it in journals. Put it in your signature when you post new art related to the comic. Post an ad for it on inkbunny, featuring a montage of scenes from the comic. Pay for actual advertisement if you have the budget for it.

Good luck!

I won't be doing the comic on my own, but through a regular publisher like either Jarlidium, or Radio Comix. It'd be a real comic book you could get in a store, but I didn't want to put a ton of effort into something for nothing. The biggest reason I left FA was a personal one. I've never been on DA, but might put my more polished stuff there in the future.

Well...it depends on what's in them.  I rarely buy comics these days, I'm generally hooked on the latest Larry Correia, Taylor Anderson, or John Ringo novel.

Absolutely!

Pickle might be referring to a service such as  e-junkie.com,  which seems fairly popular so far to sell small digital works, if you didn't want to physically print them.   Several transformation artists are using it which is the only reason I mention it.  Since digital has very little risk *no real overhead, printing costs or publishing fee cut*  other than eventual piracy *happens with normal books anyway* which I hate but it happens, and whatever time you put into physically creating the work .  And people can pay with paypal for them too so that always helps.  It might be something to look into.

But whatever you made yup I'd buy it, especially if it has ladies *laughs*

I'd totally find a way to buy most if not all of your works. I'm a bit of a fanboy towards your art >.> *hides*

I would buy if you published and I could get near a store and have them order it
