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!

Progress on the music video I've been animating in Blender Grease Pencil

Going over how I've been animating this music video using Blender Grease Pencil I've been working on a cover of the song "Shore Leave" by Tom Waits . I've been animating this video in blender grease pencil and releasing it one line of the song at a time as YouTube shorts. I kind of wanted to go over how I'm doing it and also one of the problems I'm having that's actually made it really frustrating! Check out some of the scenes from the video -  Watch the first 3 scenes of my animation/music project

Just to be clear it wasn't a bad smell.
