Ugh, it’s just a chapter cover… You know, doing these are harder for me to do than just drawing an actual comic page. It’s hard balancing cryptic-ness and forshadowy-ness while being designy. I’m not designy. I scrapped two other ones before doing this one. (Though, I’ll use them later.)
CHAPTER VIII: WOLVES ARE FROM MARS, VAMPIRES ARE FROM VENUS
Somehow, there’s a new page here… Seriously, I don’t even know how this happened. Also, on a side note, ear infections are horrible. Goddamn.
Ok, finally, finally, FINALLY a new page! 😀 Sorry to keep you all waiting so long just for another page of the poor man’s Bonnie and Clyde. See ya Friday with a new page! (with different characters.)
Also, thanks so much for those wonderful people who wished me well! It meant a lot to me. (*´◡`*) I’m much better now.
(But every time I yawn it sounds like a kazoo in one of my ears. I can’t wait for the hole in my eardrum to stop being there.)
Hey, guys, Happy New Year! Whew, so, I rang in the new year finishing this comic. Sorry about the lack of comics lately… One of my resolutions is to be consistent with TNBTU updates. OPTIMISM! I’m excited about the new year. I’ve got some cool TNBTU things planned this year. Now, I sleep… zzz…
Uhhh, it’s a little late a again, but at least it’s only late 24 hours less than last week. PROGRESS!
Yay, only 12 hours late this week. PROGRESS!
In case you haven’t seen it yet, there’s a poll going on right now about continuing the comic in color or switching to black and white and have double the updates.
With every page I do, coloring takes up half (or sometimes more) of the total amount of time. I really want to update more frequently, but the pages take so long and I sadly have only so much free time. So, I considered hiring a colorist, but it’d be quite costly in order to have more updates. I’m poor, so I plan on launching a Patreon soon to help. But if I did the pages black and white, I do more for less money. If I continue with color, it’d take more money to update frequently. I don’t even know how many people are will to give of how much. So, I feel like I’m taking a gamble either way.
I guess the urgency for me is, that I’ve been in a significant rut lately. Not just artistically, but my life has been too. I feel like I’m in limbo and I need to change something soon or I’m just gonna lose it. At the current rate of updates, it’s gonna take me 12.5 Years to finish TNBTU, and I find that to be very daunting, because I have so many stories to tell. I’ve started two other comics in the past and abandoned them. One I think barely reached 10 pages, and the other not even 30. I’m not threatening to quit, it’s just that when I get overwhelmed I shut down. I mean there have been some close calls that were just hiatuses. I don’t even know why I’m writing all of this. I guess I’m trying to be honest. I don’t know what I’m doing, but I’m trying to figure it out.
Anyway, at the rate of 2 pages a week, I’d finish TNBTU is 6.2 years. At 3 pages (can you imagine?!), I’d finish in 4.17 years. If b/w gets voted I can always go back to color later maybe. It just depends. Everything is just so up in the air right now, and I’m trying to get grounded. Oh my god, this is too long. Anyway, if you have an opinion, go ahead and vote. Oh, also, I moved up the when the poll closes because I am impatient. Now, it closes at midnight (UTC−06:00 or Central time) on Monday.
Thanks for reading!
I’m only like an hour late. PROGRESS!
In case you didn’t see my most recent announcement-type-thing, there will be a new page Monday. So, see ya, Monday!
Uhhh, this is embarrassing… Starting a new update schedule and I’m late. Tsk, tsk.
For the record, I was way ahead of schedule on this page, but then I got a stark reminder that I’m human by way of some sort stomach problems. TMI, anyway, YAY, NEW SCHEDULE. I think I can do this. This new coloring style sooo much faster… 😀
Also, if you wanna stay up to date when I screw up and fall behind on an update, I recommend following/checking my twatter to stay posted. Happy leap day, everybody! 🙂
Sorry for the delay!
Due to some silly, Windows fuckery, I had to color this shit twice…
Don’t worry. I have this new schedule under control.
I have this new schedule under control. I have this new schedule under control. I have this new schedule under control. I have this new schedule under control. I have this new schedule under control. I have this new schedule under control. I have this new schedule under control. I have this new schedule under control.
Um, anyway… Enjoy the page! 😀
Finally, a new page! Thanks for your patience!
(I’m currently trying really hard to build a buffer!)
