dun dun DUNNNNN
Rearranging things a bit.
I’ve moved the Prologue to Scroll of Ivy to the Extras folder. It’s still a useful thing and I like it a lot, but I feel as though the unnecessary info-dump might’ve been scaring away any potential new readers.
You know, there’s not enough good news out there, and we have a tendency to not be as loud with it as we are with bad news.
I just wanted to tell you that I’m doing well. I’ve moved into my new place in Austin, Texas, my new job is treating me well, and my mood has improved a lot. I’ve looking at my art skills and ability to make comics in timely fashion, and all I have to do is look at the cross-eyed first page and the chapter 2 end page …. my word is that a fantastic difference, and I did it in half the time too. Still not quite where I want to be, those clouds look more like the Wyld than a sunset, but it’s still a fantastic change in just 12 pages!
Really, the only thing bringing me down in my life is the paranoid stress that everything is going so well, the universe is just setting me up for a big fall. I’m being serious.
Anyway, on the comic news, I’ve decided to close down the Patreon account indefinitely (as soon as I figure out how.) There’s nothing wrong, it’s just that now I don’t have to pay an artist, I would like to focus my attention on the artwork for a while and not have to have the nagging rewards sitting in the back of my mind.
I’ve got a job! It’s in Austin, Texas, and pays pretty decent.
Still, I think I’m going to keep producing the comic myself. I feel like I can better communicate my ideas through doing the expressions and scenes myself, even if I envey the other’s art skills.
As you can imagine, though, it’s going to put a temporary wrench in my comic-making as I have to move and adjust to a completely new schedule. It’s going to be a bit sporadic, but I’ll try my hardest to keep a schedule. It’s just a thing about webcomics: you have to keep updating no matter what.
There was a Exalted 3rd edition comic released for kickstarter backers. This is my review of it.
