Those can be a great start. If you need some guidance on writing a comic script, the best way is to look at how the pros do it. You can find a very helpful resource of professional scripts from some of your favorite comic writers here.

Ideally you’d have to hone your craft to the point you can write and draw maybe a five page comic or so to see if it’s something you’d really want to do. Start building up a portfolio of work as well. Then you’re gonna want to start self publishing to show people that you’re capable of doing the work. If you love the process and want to make more comics, then go for it! Ride that wave of passion and show people you’re serious.

It might take a long while, but the more you put out on your own, the better chances you have of one of the big publishers noticing your work. After that it’s basically a combination of talent, timing and luck. But never lose that passion for your work and for wanting to improve, be it writing a comic, drawing a comic, or both.

It has good weight to it. Next time try shading the rest of the body I think it would look even better.
