First Year Retrospective: In Review

Postby AnimeCanuck on Sun Mar 24, 2002 11:03 am

Hi Bryan.
Reading your overview of the year made me think about a lot of things. Mostly my comic.. But also yours.

SoC is no longer that confusing anymore, and I am truly enjoying the 3rd chapter. It seems very real, and it interests me. Especially the fact that En'Chin and Keriel are... <i>EGG-WORSHIPERS!!?</i> Heh. I find that very amusing. But now it justifies why she couldn't eat the cake before.
Also.. "Mars Ain't the kind of Place to Raise Your Kids" was pretty good too.. And I got at least 80% of that.. unlike your first chapter. So, I'd like to say that you have improved in making your comic easier to understand.. Even the layouts have improved.
But there have still been a few layouts that were hard to follow. .... WEIRD WEIRD LAYOUTS. But those odd layouts that confuse me are now few and far between.. and I guess that is a good thing.

I also noticed that you mentioned me, and what I said about The Matrix. For some reason.. I don't believe that that is what I actually said.. like you paraphrased me or something.. But you didn't.. I said that.
It is very strange to me how I wrote that sentance.. Anyways.. that was why I had to tell you that your comic no longer has me confused beyond belief.. And now.. I have even been able to "predict" what comes next, like I manage to do with all movies and television shows. I thought that that would be En'Chin's office that Osi (er.. Seji!? Shoot.. I had them straight in my head.. but suddenly they're mixed up again!) would be walking in there.

What I didn't realise until the next strip though.. was that she was doing it knowingly, on purpose. I thought she was going in there for some kind of job interview or meeting.. and he would just happen to be there... I didn't know that she was already going to drop off the juice! So I found that pretty interesting.. and actually a little funny.
And I bet you're falling off your chair with laughter reading this too.. And that's fine.

You are a great inspriration to me Bryan, and you always will be. First with Pelolos.. and now with SoC.. And all the rants that come along with it!

In fact.. I have even quoted you in my own rant.. right on my Thermalyte page, just a few moments ago. You can go see if you like.

And I totally agree with you on the feedback thing. I thought I was doing Thermalyte for me- well I am- but I need feedback too. And the lack of feedback (not MEANING to put the blame on anyone.. it really and truly is my fault for this..) is, I think, partially the cause for Thermalyte's rather lengthy hiatuses. Especially this latter one.

I hope I can get myself and my life in order, so that I can continue Thermalyte, and still have a bunch of fun with Yankuckcanee.. not letting anyone down. All in preparation for my big mission... J-Force.

I hope I do do J-Force.. and not just drop it like a rock.

Well anyways.. I'm still loving your comics.

Keep up the tremendous work and effort. Whatever you do.. don't turn into me.

Ja!

Oh, good. I was hoping the retrospective will have others thinking about their own stuff.

SoC is no longer that confusing anymore, and I am truly enjoying the 3rd chapter. It seems very real, and it interests me. Especially the fact that En'Chin and Keriel are... <i>EGG-WORSHIPERS!!?</i> Heh. I find that very amusing. But now it justifies why she couldn't eat the cake before.

I'm glad you don't find it so confusing, that is a good sign. Also, I'm glad it interests you. I think that, as we go along, a lot many more things will be answered (some won't, but a lot will).

Also.. "Mars Ain't the kind of Place to Raise Your Kids" was pretty good too.. And I got at least 80% of that.. unlike your first chapter. So, I'd like to say that you have improved in making your comic easier to understand.. Even the layouts have improved.
But there have still been a few layouts that were hard to follow. .... WEIRD WEIRD LAYOUTS. But those odd layouts that confuse me are now few and far between.. and I guess that is a good thing.

Oh, I'm glad the layouts are becoming better. Maybe if you go back to chapter one it'll make a little more sense now that you've got the basic jist of the story. I just hope that you'll like and understand chapter 4, because it will be less direct than 3 or 2 are.

I also noticed that you mentioned me, and what I said about The Matrix. For some reason.. I don't believe that that is what I actually said.. like you paraphrased me or something.. But you didn't.. I said that.
It is very strange to me how I wrote that sentance..

Well, I did paraphrase you. But you basically said the same thing.

Anyways.. that was why I had to tell you that your comic no longer has me confused beyond belief.. And now.. I have even been able to "predict" what comes next, like I manage to do with all movies and television shows. I thought that that would be En'Chin's office that Osi (er.. Seji!? Shoot.. I had them straight in my head.. but suddenly they're mixed up again!) would be walking in there.

How interesting! You can predict what's going to happen next. I suppose you are a true SoC master. That just means I'll have to convolute the fourth chapter even more. Evil laughs.

What I didn't realise until the next strip though.. was that she was doing it knowingly, on purpose. I thought she was going in there for some kind of job interview or meeting.. and he would just happen to be there... I didn't know that she was already going to drop off the juice! So I found that pretty interesting.. and actually a little funny.
And I bet you're falling off your chair with laughter reading this too.. And that's fine.

Ha ha. That would be funny. En'Chin, the doctor!

You are a great inspriration to me Bryan, and you always will be. First with Pelolos.. and now with SoC.. And all the rants that come along with it!

Wow, thanks. I appreciate it. I'm glad you like the rants. I usually put whatever important things I have to say on there.
In fact.. I have even quoted you in my own rant.. right on my Thermalyte page, just a few moments ago. You can go see if you like.

Ooh, I'll go check that out, as soon as I finish this post.
And I totally agree with you on the feedback thing. I thought I was doing Thermalyte for me- well I am- but I need feedback too. And the lack of feedback (not MEANING to put the blame on anyone.. it really and truly is my fault for this..) is, I think, partially the cause for Thermalyte's rather lengthy hiatuses. Especially this latter one.

Yeah, the artists are usually the ones that take the initiative first, and not the viewers...that is, the artist puts out first, and then the viewers should put back. I don't think it is ever the other way around.
I hope I can get myself and my life in order, so that I can continue Thermalyte, and still have a bunch of fun with Yankuckcanee.. not letting anyone down. All in preparation for my big mission... J-Force.
I hope I do do J-Force.. and not just drop it like a rock.

I understand the difficulties in life that can get one to not be able to do the things that they want to do. Personally, I can't wait until the summer. I hope you have good luck getting things ready for Thermalyte, Yankuckanee and J-Force. I'm interested on what J-Force will be like.
Well anyways.. I'm still loving your comics.
Keep up the tremendous work and effort. Whatever you do.. don't turn into me.

Don't put yourself down so badly! You have done a whole lot more than a lot of people out there. I hope you keep it up, and I'll do my best reciprocate the support back to you , and hopefully that will keep you motivated.

Thanks for the thoughtfull post

"Well, I did paraphrase you. But you basically said the same thing."

Oh.. Well.. that would explain it then.. *sweatdrop*

I KNOW I didn't use a semicolon!

heheh.

And yes.. even after reading your restrospective I was motivated..
I went and drew another page of Thermalyte!
^^

So.. Go BRYAN for motivating my lazy ass!!!!

(you seriously do not know HOW LAZY I am!.. Hoooooo boy! .. I'm horrible! That's why I said "don't turn into me")

I hope you said something in my forum..
Well.. I guess I'll go check that now..

Ja ne!

Thanks for writing in my forum! ^_^

I've finally replied to it.. Go take a look see!

And sorry if I was being a ruthless jokester again.. I didn't <i>mean</i> to.. Well.. I did.. But I was serious at the same time.

I guess what I mean is that my last post there was meant as a double entendre!

Ja ne! ^_^

Well, once you are finally successful at giving me a heart attack, hopefully that will free up some space for next year's NAFTA schedule! :razz:

Hey.. I don't want to give you a <i>heart attack!!!</i>

Just some minor chest pains. (j/k .. as I'm sure you were aware. Heh.)

No.. Seriously.. I don't mean to do any of that. You know I love you Bryan!!!

HURRY UP AND FINISH PELO, NOW ! ^_^

hee hee hee, but bry I remember when... no wait, I won't torment you with fond memories of our Phoenix Rising days! LOL hey, I'm trying to get things back together since everyone seems to have something of a schedual again, you still in? I think I might start things from the begining, especially since we've had a couple charactor changes. Maybe keep a couple of the better scripts, but I feel Lacy got kinda short changed, as did Zaak and your charactors. So revamping stuff.

Hmm, perhaps, if I have time. My schedule looks quite busy here on out, so you should probably keep checking with me and asking me and any particular time. It will be difficult though, since I'll be working on a few comics in the near future, but I always enjoyed the RP so give me a ring when you do!

RP? Role playing?

... *tilts her head sideways*

But for some reason..... I get the feeling that this is comic-related..

.... *tilts her head to the other side*...

...

Hmmmmmm......

Check this site out. I've only played a small role in it but its quite extensive and there's a lot of back story

I hope Lacy doesn't hit me for linking this site.

*whispers* Ooh! It looks neat! I looked at the "Who we are" and both your characters.. as well as some other characters. Spiffy! ^^

Hmmm.. Maybe we could talk more about that sometime on AOL, or in an email! ^^
