They say the third times a charm, so....
...So Ive started over. Again. Why? For several reasons. 1.) I know I can do better than what Id been doing. Seriously. Ive got comics that I drew back when I was 15 years old
done completely in pencil that looked better than what I had posted before. 2.) The previous version was a little too
wordy for my taste. Sequential art is supposed to tell a story through art, but Id found that Id become a bit too explanatory in most of the pages. Id been relying too much on text to get my points across, and one of the things that manga is about (particularly shoujo) is the portrayal of feelings and emotion through images. Not only that, but the story (to me) was coming off as too
lighthearted for my tastes. It was not the way Id envisioned it in my mind. The actual story is really supposed to be pretty angsty/bittersweet
but obviously I had failed miserably in that effect. (though Id only had about 8 pages posted before.) So for these reasons, Ive completely redrawn EVERYTHING. I was having major issues with drawing a distinctly SHOUNEN manga in a Shoujo style. I wanted to try to merge the two together, but obviously I failed. LoL
..as a result, this newer comic looks VERY shoujo; complete with feathers and sparklies and- (I hope this wont bother any of you
Anyways, for those of you whove been keeping up with this, I already have about 5 pages of the new comic drawn out. Not only that, but I have 2 more pages that just need editing. So I'll probably have another update out either later tonight or tommorrow. And not to worry this version will go along a lot faster than the last, so itll actually be caught up and past the older version within a matter of pages.
I've also got the Character and About pages up.
