Agony uncle gets spam

Previous Agony Uncle Consultations

I also tried recording my screen while I made the comic. It worked well for some time, then the computer crashed. So here’s 25% of the comic process. The rest was similar, so it’s good that I didn’t record the whole thing anyway.

So as is obvious, since most of these “characters” are already made, I just dump them on a blank comic template and start putting in the dialogues. Next time I’ll put up a video of how to convert a photo into a comic character. I have total faith that everyone is interested in this, and would totally love to spend maybe 10-20 minutes watching a non-boring Photoshop tutorial with no sound. Let me know if I’m being totally unrealistic.

    Hehe… Enlargement spam, its all Freud’s fault.

    BTW, I think Agony Uncle is better when he’s actually answering deepest most personal questions, instead of being the grumpy old man who complains about some shit. :|

    Will Agony Uncle meet Bubu anytime?

    I so agree that the level of spam has gone from quality to quantity! But more than the comic, I was impressed with the video, it was good..

    Hi Saad,

    Been following your blog and Twitter feeds. Love the comics. The video was really cool too. Thought you used a comic creator software, didn’t figure you were doing all this with just Photoshop!

    Do tell what was the music in the video. I really liked it.

    Keep those comics coming :)

    Thanks everyone. So everyone liked the video more than the comic. The message is clear. From now on, no more comics… only videos of the makings.

    @sree: Fair enough. I’ll make sure Agony Uncle does more spiritual healing and less of the whining.

    @akshata: I tried some comic software, but it was too restrictive. And the layouts are too traditional comicsish. About the music.. well I don’t remember. I was playing Grateful Dead at the time, and when I sped up the video later it sounded like Satan playing some country music. So I replaced the audio in youtube. They have many audio tracks you can use on your videos. I chose one of them. Sorry, dont remember the name though.

    Enjoyed the comic making vid. What song are you playing in the background? Porn music, but it still sounds good.

    Hang you man and fuck your how-to-make-a-comic video. Broadband doesn’t come free of cost.
