Remember that time when you were pushing your work for the next day and you were giving excuses? We all went through it however only the ones that didn’t make excuses succeeded. I finally got out of this small basement and right now I am in a nice apartment with enough space for me to actually move around and not feel trapped.
I have to admit that moving out actually showed me how unprepared I was. I am currently on working on the 2nd chapter of Black Pulse which I think I might or might not change the name. The reason is simple, I don’t want people to assimilate it to other things than this manga. On the other side, I have never thought that I wouldn’t know what to write, this chapter was supposed to explore more the world that I created but we have all seen a series about multiple “meta-humans” so I want to bring something new to the table but what?
To bring Black Pulse more to life, I am planning to take a few kendo classes.
I have been working on Black Pulse for a while now and I am still no satisfied with the first chapter. I still haven’t captured the essence of what I want to talk about in this story. Black Pulse is a criminal, a person who would kill if ordered and yet still feels the guilt afterwards even if he does not show it. He is not compassionate and even if he would spare you if he wanted, his orders are absolute and it is not because he has been brainwashed or anything.
I wanted the role of his Father to show how parents can be misunderstood. He is scary, evil and rude but is that really what he is doing? Oh course, during all my versions of writing Black Pulse, the role of the father Black Pulse was always the role of someone who would give ruthless orders to kill and yet he shares the same goal as Black Pulse but I already spoiled a lot.
On the other side, I want to share an encounter with a friend who describe my dream to become a comics writer as a “boring career”. Just as anyone, I was offended and did not say anything else. It is true that having an office job with a good salary as a dream job for some people but yet, please don’t offend other’s dream and saying that it’s boring. I already worked hard enough to get a decent job to save money to learn drawing since I live alone. It might sound like I’m whining and it is probably the case. That means that I got to work harder so that to show them how good I am.
