How I draw my daily webcomic on my website

I go over the process for how I draw my daily webcomic I post on my website.

I've been drawing this comic for about 4 years now. It's a diary comic called "Then This Happened..." I think of something that happens to me each day and I try to express it in four panels. No punchlines, just a slice of life from my day.

In the video, I show how I use the program Medibang Paint which has a feature to create the panels automatically.

Then I write out the text for each panel and the drawing settings I have been using on my Samsung Galaxy Tab A with S Pen.

The story that I draw about in this video deals with a problem I've been having with an online distributor that has been claiming songs as theirs by my band Lorenzo's Music which I feel like that happens a lot!

Making a book of my webcomic - Artwork/Book sizes & Printing - Part 2

This is the second video in a series about how I make books of my webcomics In the previous video , I gave some background about how I started my webcomic, how I add the images to my book with the help of Google Photos and Google docs. You can check out part 1 here -  https://www.tomrayswebsite.com/2022/01/making-book-of-my-webcomic-how-i-add.html In this video, I wanted to talk more about how my webcomic transformed from something I was just posting on my website to a thing that I could find multiple uses for. Now when I drew the comic I knew it was going to be something I would publish as a book, put on multiple media sites that people use, and sell at shows and pop-ups if I wanted to. Now each webcomic is being turned into several things. ( You can check out my Amazon books here - https://amzn.to/3qzSNdL ) How did I choose a size for my book? Since I started making these the 3 books I published of my webcomics have all been different sizes. When I was just posting it on my website

eBay books.

I just thought that was interesting. Curious to see if they sell for that much.

Music stand.

I mean I waited 20 minutes so it's fair game right?

Rotating chair.

It's like I forgot how they work.
