How are you doing, comic-wise?

For discussions, announcements, non-technical questions and anything else comics-related or otherwise that doesn't fit in any of the other categories.

One of these days I will actually update something properly.
Until then I will continue to get excited about new projects which I will work on fiendishly for about a month before dropping them for the next shiny thing.

So, you know, same as always.

I still do Real Life Fiction, although I don't update as often as I used to. :{ That eternal problem, time. I also have been working on a backlog for a new comic called Fiddle Styx (though I might change the name to Riddle Styx?) I put pages on my DA site for now. I want a hefty backlog because it's story based.

Knowing absolutely nothing about it, we vote for Fiddle Styx.

I vote for both with a confusing logo that could be read either way.

Now we look like chumps, 'cause "Riddle Styx" is much better suited to the thing.

YOU HAVE CHUMPED US, MIXEDMYTH! :x :x

a dust cloud glides through the air




I finished chapter six! Unfortunately my procrastination led this to being an event with much less fanfare than it probably deserved. I'm trying to think of ways to make the process easier for myself when I begin chapter 7.

I started scripting a few scenes, but some are much easier than others will be. I doubt I'll have a finished script by May, though who knows.

I also have to do a lot more research this time around, so will probably need to start plunging into that very soon.

The next chapter is going to be extremely long. At this point there's no way it'll be less than 100 pages (drawn, not typed). :o :( :x D: Some of it I might move around to see if I can shorten that by a small margin but either way it's going to be a lot.


Grad school has been pretty much kicking my butt in terms of productivity at life and comics. I'm only taking two night classes but the homework for those combined with my job makes it much more difficult for me to settle down enough to draw stuff. Depressing. I really miss the days where I could make pages faster but I know at the same time that those pages were really shitty especially in comparison to what I'm now able to do. I think the best thing I can do is just have a lot of my locale/setting research done ahead of time so that when it comes time to draw a scene I already have references at hand and don't have to go searching every time I get to a new place.


I think this place is so dead that no one is going to even see this post.

I share your pain Cuddly.

We've consistently had at least two people away at work for the last few months (and one is gonna be off until June) so I've had to pick up at least one extra day a week and often had to work longer shifts. So on my days off I barely have the energy/motivation to work on my comic or writing...

On the plus side, I'm doing a bunch of art commissions for a mate so hopefully that will spread some word around.

I've now finished the first draft of my second book, though it'll likely take months to edit.

YOU CAN DO IT TERO



I'm on a character design rampage. There is a strange urgency to my desire to draw. I want to show you guys all the peeps but like then it would ruin the surprise

I think it's funny how quickly the activity around here picked up as soon as someone new posted. It's like none of us want to give up on this forum, so we all just go into lurker mode periodically until something new entices us out of our burrows :lol:

So, Steel Salvation traffic is going up. We've now got likes, comments, subscriptions. We have an RSS feed and a mobile-friendly Tapastic version that's gradually catching up to the main comic. Our first antagonist has trampled onto the scene. And now, of course, we run completely out of strips and have no choice but to either take a hiatus or switch to one update every two weeks. We've all agreed that a slower update schedule is preferable to a hiatus or a "whenever it's done" approach, so hopefully this doesn't kill our momentum entirely. Steel Salvation is better read in chunks than on a page-by-page basis anyway, so I don't think our readers will mind too much.

I stopped checking the forums every morning as part of my waking up routine because there was never anything new for weeks and then stumbled by after a few days only to find ACTIVITY and it was great :lol:

I'm so glad to hear that you guys are on the up-and-up. I was thinking about SS recently. I haven't been back to check it out since my last review but I'm looking forward to seeing how everything played out after the art overhaul.

Myself, still in scripting hell. My creative juices have been totally expended the past few months and have yet to replenish. I cough up a scene or two every few weeks but it's taking forever to get the whole picture to come together. I'm at the point where I've stopped caring much about it though, I've got other stuff going on in my life right now so I can't beat myself up over not being as productive in my hobby as I used to be. The summer will come soon and I'll drop back to "normal" I'm sure.

Been doing some character practices and sketches here and there. I don't think I'm on the verge of a huge artistic breakthrough like I was before chapter 6 but certain things are coming along easier than they used to which is encouraging.
