Advertisers don’t care about the quality of your content. All they care about is pageviews and unique hits. This is a constant battle for me because I know that the easiest way for me to make money providing free content is to put out as many comics as I can as fast as possible, but as an artist I know that this is kinda cheap, looks bad, and is not at all artistically fulfilling.

Isn't it always the same; I can easily relate to anything you bring forth....unfortunately, because in a "better world", this kind of shit wouldn't be common but instead what would be should be common sense.
uuuuuuuh......oooookay.....,lacking of interest i guess?

Honestly if you do a really good quality picture or comic book or so, then you could sell them at a high enough price to be able to gain a decent amount, if not a lot, of money to cover what you would normally do at the lower quality. To add to it, you will be able to get a lot more money from selling the really good, high quality art, than if you were to mass produce the lower quality art.


Although the good art might sell well, if you sell a comic, having both good art and a good story will give you a great amount of money, rather than just, amazing art and not so good story or vice versa.


I think that if you want to sell more art, then you should try to find the balance between really good art and the lower quality art. This should be able to give you the ability to keep the level of quality you want while still being easy to mass produce the art for selling.


Well I hope this helps.

Good on you, keeping the quality and the quantity of it fair.
you could try every once in awhile, is a panel a day(or every two days) comics and at the end of each set repost the previous planes in once image as a completed strip 

I say, for a week, do purposely bad quality comics

you're the artist, not them
