Detective Marcus Byrn - Raven Security Forces
Been away for a while for some study and R&R, but i'm back with a little DarkWire character art!

Marcus Byrn, Ex-sergeant of the 12th Division during the Colonization War came home from a long, brutal tour fighting the Alien natives.
His own brethren, their nano machines destroying their brains combating an invasive unknown pathogen, were driven mad, causing mass casualties on both sides, sent him home near death. His left arm missing and extensive damage done to his entire body when he found himself going toe to toe with an infected battle brother in power armor. 
Upon his return he was informed of the loss of his wife and infant daughter to a raid on his complex by the local Spitfire Gang. Broken both physically and emotionally he has built himself back up. Unable to re-enlist he joined the R.S.F. Police work has suited him well and he has steadily climbed through the ranks of the R.S.F. Once again a sergeant, he is taking the fight to criminal element within the city. 
Loading...
so, I have been doing this comic weekly for nearly 3 months now and i've noticed a few things.

1. ) I feel the quality of the art, instead getting better, has gotten worse.

2. ) I'm beginning to feel most if it is more of a chore than a joy.

and

3. ) My workflow and knowledge of certain aspects of art aren't up to the quality that I need them to be and my work and mind suffer for it. 

Because of these things i've decided to take a step back for a while and do some more study. Do more singular, high detail pieces and focus on the things I feel I need to learn. Sorry guys, but I have to do what's right for me. This decision was a hard one to make, but trust that I will come back to the comic when the time is right. 

So, I've been working on my Comic for a while now and have set up a Patreon to get some support so I can spend more time on my artwork. Now, I knew from the start that I don't have a following yet and building a community was going to take a long time. The road ahead is long and i'm wondering if any of you guys have any thoughts on how i should move forward. This is something i've been building for half of my life and I would love to see it out in the world. I want to share the world that i've built, but without people giving me feedback I know i'm going to end up floundering...so here's the TL:D (Big Grin)R.

do any of you have any tips to help me build a community and move forward? 

This is the biggest thing i've ever wanted to do. I know we all have dreams, and for some of us our art is more important than anything in the world. If you feel the same way I do get involved in this conversation, maybe we can all learn some things from each other. 
Maybe check out my current comic and patreon page to give me some feedback on those as well, I know there is always an avenue of improvement and I want this to be the best it can be going forward. Thanks for looking.
