So if you’ve already seen today’s page (16/04/2014) then you’ll know I made a major mistake with the dialogue colours in the conversation between Khali and Kya, giving Khali the light blue used before on Kya and Kya the faint purple used for Khali, which is annoying.
Many people have already pointed this out and I can only apologise for the slip-up, it’s a stupid mistake to make that spoils a lot of the immersion I’ve tried to improve recently in the comic.
Still it’s a mistake made and quickly remedied (the revised page with the correctly coloured dialogue is already up). I’m sorry again that I overlooked it when doing the final check on the page and I promise to try my best not to let it happen again.
So yeh, I accidentally posted the Friday page today… on Thursday, sorry about that guys, I’ve taken down the page and re-uploaded it with the proper date code.
So sorry about all that and hopefully it hasn’t spoiled anything for anyone, the page will be up properly on time tomorrow, and for everyone that saw it before then… congratz you get a little sneak peak!
Don’t worry there wasn’t any major spoilers, it just serves me right for trying to get ahead by making pages ahead of time :S
Hey Guys, hope everyones doing well.
I’m starting to try and uplift the art style of the comic at the beginning of this chapter, so if it looks odd for a couple of pages that’s just me working out the kinks. I’ve been practising our art style in the gallery images I make for a while now, and with the start of the new chapter I reckoned now would be a good time to try and uplift the art of the comic aswell.
Also I wanted to point out that this will be the last chapter of this volume of the webcomic (aside from a little short addon I’ve been planning) which sees the end of this little starting adventure for Kohta. But do not worry I will be continuing the webcomic and Kohta will continue to foul up his dreams of becoming a great Samurai adventurer in the next volume. I’ve been really enjoying making this webcomic and aside from a couple of hitches things have been going as planned, hopefully you’ve been enjoying it too. Volume 2 will focus more on individual chapters and smaller adventures for a while, to try and build up Kohta’s character more and introduce more of the world he lives in.
Anyway, again hope you’re all doing allright and thanks for listening.
So the story goes that about a year ago (400 days technically) I decided that this was what I wanted to do, draw cool and sexy stuff online, and make some cool webcomics. Only at the time I couldn’t draw, like at all, and never really had the patience to try. So I made myself a new rule, that I would upload a new image online to our gallery every day. That way I would try to improve and get better with every image I made, plus it got me into a routine I could stick with.
Anyway, just over a year on I reckon it’s done it’s job, I can now draw, I just now need to figure out how to draw well, and I’m thinking that daily upload rule is standing in the way of that.
As our art style has improved it’s taking longer to make each image, and to help that I’ve decided to drop the image a day upload rule thing with our galleries, to focus on making better images. I’ll still be uploading images to our galleries online, just less often.
Of course this doesn’t affect our webcomics at all, they will continue with their current upload rates. In fact now that I’ll have some spare time I should be able to make some changes I’ve had in mind for a while. Like uplifting the art style to my newer, more detailed/Manga like style, or make the interface changes on the sites, like adding banners, weblinks, background and information pages etc.
Anyway, so that’s my announcement, I’m hoping all you guys are doing fine and I’ll catch you in a couple of days once I’ve had some time to chill and do some things I’ve been putting off because of work, stuff like sleeping for instance
Hey Up, I want to thank everyone who commented on my last blog entry, it has given me a lot to go on and I’m starting to plan ahead what I’m needing to do to make this art gig work.
The major thing I need to do now is to improve our artwork and our writing, and to do that I’ll need to set up a buffer of work, comic pages and the like, ahead of time so that I can concentrate on improving my artwork without having to worry about missing an upload deadline at the same time.
I should have that buffer of work up and running in the next couple of weeks, and once it is, I’ll be able to concentrate again on improving my work.
It won’t make my art style perfect over night, but if I can spend a week or two on it, drawing images and trying new methods, then it should give us a clue as to how to get better and I can work on it from there.
So thanks again for all the comments and suggestions over the last couple of weeks, they’ve really helped and given me a lot to think about.
Catch you all later guys.
