No new strips this week. Nah, it’s not because of school work or any other kind of obligation. It’s because I need to figure out a better way of doing the strip.
Currently, it’s done all-digitally on an ancient Wacom intuos 2 tablet. While digital work is great because there’s so much margin for error (ctrl+z for days), I’m starting to realize that the way I’m doing things is incredibly slow and cumbersome. I realized this when I said to two friends who came over that it would only take me about thirty minutes to finish the last panel of the most recent strip. In actuality, It took me two hours plus.
So, I’m trying out some new methods. The one I’m leaning towards is going back to pen & paper, and inking with a brush. The latter though, is a technique that will take some time to master or even get decently good at. I’m willing to put in the time though, and I’ve been practicing all week, so we’ll see where that goes.
Sorry for the lack of updates. I’m looking forward to returning soon, though!
Today marks the twentieth update of the comic, which probably doesn’t seem super significant, but is actually pretty cool because I’m pretty shit at sticking to anything I try and do. Yet, here we are.
As some of you might know, I’m in Toronto for full-time college classes now, but I’m still going to try and stick to my twice-weekly update schedule for the comic. I always have weekends to catch-up if I get behind because of schoolwork or whatever, plus I have wednesdays off – which I have now declared “comic day.” So things should continue as before.
I hope you’re all enjoying the story so far – I know there isn’t much here yet, but just you wait. Things ought to pick up quickly as I work my way through the remainder of this chapter. Knowing I’ve made it to twenty updates has only motivated me more to keep going.
Thanks for stopping by!
After a whole month of drawing, writing, initial preparation, week-long productivity droughts and excessive procrastination – here we are! The start of something you all can finally get a look at.
This is a comic I’ve been wanting to do for a pretty long time now, and given that I had been out of the webcomic game since 2009, I had a lot of catching up to do (and still have even farther to go) – but I hope you guys enjoy the results. I’m not sure how long I’ll be able to keep this up or where it’s going to go, but I guess that’s part of the fun, eh?
Currently I’ll be updating every tuesday and thursday, but that might change as I get more comfortable with how efficiently I can work. For now though, I hope you like what you see with your eyeballs! Tell your friends, too, if you think my work is worth any kind of shit. That’d be tight.
Thanks for stopping by!
