Trying to write a horror story.

The hardest part is trying to avoid making it seem like I'm being "edgelord" on purpose. Not the easiest :-I

Also trying to decide if a cartoony art style would work for a horror comic.

Might work with comedy/horror, I guess :ponder:

Yes if you draw white on black.

Or just go really heavy on the black.

Seriously when I think of horror in comics I think big thick angular lines and the black just bleeds into anything which casts a shadow.

The thing about horror art is that a lot of horror is in the details of an image. Artists like HR Giger and Junji Ito thrive on horrific details in their art being a huge source of the horror. That's not to say that a detailed horror art-style is necessary for the horror genre, though. A lot of horror feeds off of the fear of the unknown, that which can never be known, and other existential horrors. So you can get away with a minimalist depiction of horrible things so long as the implication of the horror is there and clearly evident.

If I ever succeed at making something that becomes popular, this is about how I expect it to go.

I wonder if this is ever an issue for creators who create family friendly content after years of doing not-for-kids work.

"I'd recommend interested readers keep an eye on [sanitized social media channel for promoting the popular thing] for news about what we've got coming up." Dodge the issue by pivoting toward future content while leaving the audience wanting more. Easy. :twiright:

Being afraid of staring at a blank page is literally one of the things that keeps me from writing more. :-I

First you make them care (for the characters), then you make them suffer (with the characters).
