Chapter 3 – Cover

August 14, 2014

And we’re back! Regular updates for the foreseeable future, now that I have a desk to work at! Exciting!

This should be a pretty fun chapter, and I’m just happy to be working on pages again. See you guys on Thursday!

Seeing how this is the cover of the future event, I’m anticipating something dramatic. Or maybe the next page will be about Galak, who had just dropped the binoculars while leaning out the balcony and is like “whoops!” Cool to see you back, Rose!

Oh my. I have spent… about the past few days reading this comic up to here. I absolutely /love/ it. With all the details, it almost feels like reading a novel! A very charming story, with lovable characters and storyline. I also very much so enjoy the fact that you composed music; they’re very beautiful pieces.

I am definitely looking forward to the rest of the comic! Keep it up! You are very talented!

Awesome! By the way, what happened to the Patreon project? I just threw some money in Ryan Estrada’s general direction to thank him for general awesomeness and comics, and I can’t wait to do the same for you.

Thanks! To be honest, it’s rather fallen prey to my growing perfectionism (ugh). I really wanted to be able to offer a bunch of stuff – I’m nervous about blithely taking people’s money, I guess – but I’m beginning to wonder if that’s… you know, something I shouldn’t be deciding for other people.

Also, I’ve done quite a poor job of creating merchandise over the years, since I’d far rather spend my time writing and drawing the comic itself, so starting from zero in that respect is less than ideal. It’s taking a long time to get anything at all together because I’m working on it all at the same time. I want to offer refined pdfs of the comic, wallpapers, and also that album I’ve been working on forever, but time is finite as it turns out. That’s especially true recently between moving myself to a new flat and the site to a new host.

At any rate, I’m still hoping to post it sooner rather than later! I’m probably just over-thinking it.

I do think you are overthinking it! The nice thing with patreon is that merchandise is not a necessary part of the deal, and you can do:
- far less exhausting bonuses (boni?) that can be a fun diversion from work rather than a lot more work
- things over time rather than having all of them ready right at the start
Actually, now that I think about it, most people I support there haven’t really prepared that many things in advance, versus reusing old stuff or adding small things as they go, and that’s perfectly fine.
For instance, Tom Siddell makes regular videos where he explains a little bit of his thinking behind a specific chapter of the comic. Ryan Estrada mostly made packs of his already existing but not freely available stuff. And so on. Sure it must have taken some time to set it all up, but the idea is that we are supporting what they *already* do for free on the Internet, not asking for more.

And indeed you should trust other people to decide what they do with their money :P There are countless dumber ways of spending it than encouraging artists who make their (awesome) work available for everyone.
