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.
