I decided to enter this contest, most of followers know about the comic I made 3 years ago, called Mirror's Cycle
, an still pov comic with little drawings instead of words, a little over 200 pages long, telling the story of Daniel, who slowly turns into a girl over the course of a week.
It's been so far my largest project, I doubt my current long comic Is it Summer Yet?
Will go anywhere near in length, but I'm hoping to make a bigger impact.
For those unaware, I'm a part of the TG community, which stands for Transgender, or, more popularly know Gender Bender, often regarded as fetishist, though I see TG as more of an identity thing, something many TG artist fight for as more than just sexually arousal material. And that's what motivates me to draw not just for this contest, but that category of artwork in general, my followers know as I've been doing it for years now.
If you haven't read Mirror's Cycle yet, give it a go, it's 3 years old and that shows in the artwork, but I find it heartwarming to this day even considering it's my own work, and that's sounds horrifyingly egotistical <3
Some of my followers, the ones who have been following me for a while, also know that I started doing these type of comics purely because I felt like there wasn't enough of them around, I was glad to see there is a public for it, that does keep me going, but what motivates me the most is purely the lack of these type of pictures.
I'm encouraging everyone in the TG community to enter this. And unsure artists to join the TG community, it's small, but we take care of each other. If you're better than me, then let's talk, I'll be willing to help you get known as much as I can. And if you're not better, then join as well, no one starts being perfect, and I'll also be willing to help you get better.
