Ten pages, can you believe it?!
It's been a bumpy take off, but we're getting there. Believe it or not, I already have the next page done and it's SO tempting to go ahead and post it. But I won't.
Why? Frankly, it's ONLY one page ahead. I've learned some techniques that have helped me get faster. But at the same time, life has shown me that it likes to kick my butt from time to time, and I'd rather not risk being a page behind when I'm actually scheduled to be posting one. So yeah. YA'LL HAVE TO WAIT TWO WEEKS. But so do I.
New Years Updates
Coming after the first of the year, I'm going to try a few things.
1. I'm moving out. It's going to be tight, 90% because I'm not quite making enough. Unfortunately, due to circumstances at home I NEED to get out, and fortunately, I work for a property manager who is willing to help me make it work. This may or may not wreak havoc on my update schedule, but I'm going to try as hard as I can to get it up for you guys.
2. Creating a Patreon account. I already have a lot of ideas for how to use it and a list of rewards. So far the general consensus of those I've asked is "What the hell is Patreon?!" to "Damn, that's a pretty awesome list!" I honestly don't expect a lot. I know a lot of you guys are as tight up on money as I am if not worse, so don't feel obligated. But to those of you who are able and willing, every little bit helps and I would love you forever.
For those of you who've never heard of Patreon before, here is a general idea: www.patreon.com/about
For those of you interested, here is what I've come up with for a list of patreon rewards: docs.google.com/document/d/1pe…
Feel free to leave ideas and suggestions in the comments.
3. Be more social and involved. That means attempting to be on Skype more (so long as moving out allows me to have internet), ACTUALLY celebrating holidays, leaving more comments and critiques on deviantart, hanging out with people I know IRL, etc. I know I need to come out of my shell, being so introverted and being a borderline hermit isn't good for me. Social anxiety be damned.
Q: Are you being paid to do the Twilight's Dollhouse Comic?
A: No, this is a labour of love for a story I really enjoyed. While it's not my number one, top spot, favorite of all time fanfic, it was one that I could envision as a comic. I also took it on as practice for future, original (non-pony) comics that I will be doing in the future.
Q: Will there be scenes in the comic that were not in the fanfic?
A: Originally, the answer was no. HOWEVER, I did pose this question to Kaidan and he seemed quite excited about the idea. So the answer will be "maybe" as the story is already pretty long as is.
Q: What programs do you use for your art?
A: I do the sketches by hand, use Paint Tool SAI for lineart, and Photoshop CS3 for everything else.
Q: How long is the comic going to be?
A: At this point, I have NO idea.
Q: Will you also be converting Dollhouse II and any other future sequels into comics?
A: At this point I'm going to say no, unless TDH explodes and I have a fuck ton of requests to do said sequels. Making comics is a lot of work, and I have other endeavors that I want to move on to once this project is finished.
Q: Will you ever start writing again?
A: Yes. In fact, I already have. However, I'm taking it slow as writing is easier for me to burn out on. But there WILL be more. I promise. Both fanfics AND original stories.
Q: Have you ever thought about doing livestreams?
A: Yes. I've done them in the past, and plan on doing them in the future. HOWEVER, at the moment I'm a bit nervous to do them. Both because I've been having to deal with depression, causing me to become pretty darn anti-social, but also because whenever I art I enjoy watching movies or youtube videos. I can't do that while I stream D: But maybe eventually, when I can dedicate more time to art at a single time period and I'm feeling a big social.
