Anonymous asked: Hi, I’m writing/drawing my own comic book-I’ve been struggling with letting go of making every panel & page look great & finish more pages instead. I feel I spend too much time on getting the layout & composition of each panel to read clearly & be dynamic. If I cut back on the art, simplify & let mistakes go I can get more pages done, but then I have that nagging voice saying I know I can draw better than that & the reader is not seeing my best. How do you balance this? Your thoughts? Thanks.
Just going from personal experience, I realized I only got more confident in my work when I gave up trying to make every panel the prettiest it could be and just finished the stories. I think of that nagging voice as a siren trying to lure us away from getting things done — for me the voice will be there no matter how little or how hard I try, so I just ignore it. Just don’t ever stop moving forward.
