HEY ALL I’m gonna be at SPX TABLE B-13 this weekend alongside my roommate cryptovolans (listed as Emily Smith in the con directory)! I’ll be selling copies of Hotblood! volumes 1 & 2, StrangelyKatie's Princess Princess, and Katie’s & my Mahou Shounen Breakfast Club zine!!
I hope to see you there~!
If you’re at SPX this weekend make sure you stop n say hi to Toril!! She’ll be sellin her cool comic, my cool comic, and our cool zine!
Yes it is! Thank you so so much to everyone who bought a copy, I’m honestly so incredibly grateful!!
However if you’re nowhere near Maryland, I’m looking into printing services at the moment that’ll let me distribute without so much stress, so please stay tuned!
It’s always interesting drawing characters you haven’t in a while, it definitely shows you which parts of their design you remember. These idiots are always fun!
Aww thank you, this is a very sweet ask! I actually still really love the concept of the comic a lot, so at some stage way way in the future I would like to come back to it! It just needs waaay more development and, well, cleverness basically haha. A combination of text/images would be ideal for me!
Ahh I’m a dofus! That should be fixed now! ;___; Thanks for the heads up!!
Hey, thank you so much! I’ve mentioned this a couple of times but I guess it doesn’t hurt again - no, I won’t be continuing it. Since I might as well turn this into an educational exercise for others, here are some reasons why!
1. Feeling like you “should be doing something” is very understandable - we all like to feel constructive! But sometimes, doing a thing just for the sake of it is not a constructive decision at all. I definitely felt like “webcomics are cool, I like comics, I should make a webcomic!” so I made a webcomic. This is not a good reason to make a webcomic, haha.
2. If you have an idea, you really need to make sure it can outlast that initial spark. A new idea will always light you up and fill you with passion! It’s exciting, it’s fresh, it has limitless scope! And once you start making characters for it it becomes even more exciting! However this initial spark can fizzle out really quickly if you don’t spend the time developing and continuing to add interesting things to it and making sure you believe in it enough to sustain it for a long period of time!
3. Which is why you should definitely take the time to do lots of research and development! Make the entire project a learning exercise and push your skills - a big problem for me was that I felt complacent, like I was doing “just enough”. Any comic I do now I want to make me learn new things, and get better at old ones!
It kinda bites admitting I made a decision I regretted, but at the same time it’s put in a place to better understand how to create a good relationship with comics into the future! And nobody should ever feel ashamed to drop a project if it’s making them unhappy or feel weighed down, as Hell City did to me. So if this experience helps anyone out, I’d be really happy!
They should go out sometime around the first week of September! We’re both exceptionally happy that we sold out of our first print run, so we’re just waiting on another. Thanks so much to everyone who has bought a copy!! We appreciate it so much!
Yup, its for Mahou Shounen Breakfast Club! Basically there’s a profile on each of the characters, as well as a range of character study drawings by both me and Toril, and a lil omake comic about us at the end!
Thanks so much if you end up buying it, we’re so happy with everyone’s response so far and all the support really really means a lot to us! ;w; We appreciate it so much!
