Ariel Punch!

June 30th, 2010, 1:55 pm

Ugh. I was Internet-less for almost a week here. So frustrating. xD And I wish that could mean "so I did a bunch of pages for the comic", but no. It means "lots of gameplay hours for my new Tales of Vesperia game". I'm sorry. o wo;

I'm leaving the filler up since so many people like it. o uo Also, I'll clear it right now: Queen Hartley is not a drag queen. xD Interesting theory, but no, she IS fully female. Eric is her son, not a sibling or a magical clone.

And a few replies! Sorry if I don't take the time to reply to each and every one of you. You don't know how much I appreciate the compliments on the pages, and I thank you all muffins a lot for them, but the reply to most of those comments would be the same: "Thanks a lot!". If you do ask me something you're obviously expecting to be replied to, I do reply. I've sent replies to some fans via PMs here, or post the replies here. I normally keep replying for answers and not just thanking you guys, but I could never ignore any of you! I appreciate each and every one of you and the comments you leave. ; u; They encourage me more than you'll ever know.

@Meg-comics: No me molesta que comentes en español. xD Es igual. o uo Es lo bueno de ser bilingues!

@Raspberry-Nunez: I'm sorry to say I can't really give you much advice on that, or even some that will be 100% effective. o wo I have other comics here in Smackjeeves, and this one seems to be the most popular one. If anything, I'd say: post often, respect your fans. Try not to leave them hanging.

I can't tell you "make the content interesting", because not everyone likes the same thing. Some people will tell you "just do yaoi and fans will come swarming." This is a lie. Although yaoi / boy love is very popular in smackjeeves (much to the fury of many smackjeeves-forum dwellers and amateur spriters), just making your comic yaoi won't get you hundreds or thousands of fans. You need to put some effort into the content.

Make sure your comic has quality: doesn't matter if it's sprite, manga, cartoon, anything. You need to place standards and stick to them. For example, don't go making every page with a different style or tools (eg. one digital, the other drawn in notebook paper with pen, another just a sketch), DON'T make your pages awkward (eg. too big to fit the screen, text too small to read, each page being a different size), try to stick to one font instead of changing it in every page, and so on.

Hope this helps!

And let me say: each week, I look forward to your updates...almost more than any other omic on this site. ^^ Your story is amazing, your art beautiful and lifelike, and your characters help bring your version to a new height. It's probably one of the greatest things I've ever read ^^ (or at least in my big top five)
