BLEACH REDUX… - COMPLETE Redux on… - Redux on SmackJeeves

I didn't cry.  I was too numb from how fucking stupid that set-up was.  I'm still kind of pissed about it.

The beginning of the episode was pretty good though, considering how "HOLY SHIT ARE YOU SERIOUS?" the end of last week's episode was.  Thank you for being awesome, Rick.  I hope you keep the car.

Your art is so professional and so great, so I'm watching you. I've only read Chapter 0 and Chapter 1 of your Eiodolon comic book, but I think it's great already despite hints of ruthless actions. It's rare that I see anyone making so good and well-developed of a web comic. I'm watching you to see what else you come up with. And good luck with all your ventures.

I just thought of more stuff to say in my comment
like helpful things (hopefully)
though only minor
-on here- all your links to places, maybe you could try and spice them up a bit and make images that look a bit like buttons with the click through link so you draw people's eyes better! (like this person makes all her stuff really pretty So maybe have the smackjeeves and manga magazine ones at the top of your DA ID box as 'buttons' and then use your other account's icon and try and draw attention to it:


sort of thing

and the other thing I thought of, you update in big chunks right?? Which is awesome for pre-existing readers but how smackjeeves and other sites work is that you get put on the 'Just updated' page whenever you update
so if you spread out your updating to less at a time and more frequent- there's more of a chance of people seeing your comic on that page!

Anyway that was just some thoughts I had- good luck with your stuff!

On point 1, that's a fantastic idea.  I'll make buttons as soon as I get home from work.

On point 2, I can't break the updates down anymore than I already do @___@  I've formatted the story to work in larger chunks/chapters because nothing all that interesting happens on a 5-6 page basis =/  I tell myself that it works out the same way monthly manga magazines do, where stuff like Berserk updates once every 2 books or so, or every 30 days as the case may be.  By myself, the process takes a bit longer XD  Maybe one day I'll have a small team.  One day.

I've asked my readers before if they preferred faster/shorter updates or bigger/slower ones, and they ended up saying bigger/slower was fine.  I do wish I could get stuff done faster though.  I'll really think about making updates smaller.  It'd make me happier to post stuff more often than I do XD;;

Glad I could help! I mean- I saw where the thing was fine but it occurred to me when I saw someone else asking where the links were haha
plus when things look pretty the impulsion to click is strong ahaha

Ahh alright that is fair enough! I don't know why but I was assuming you were posting in larger chunks than that
and the whole 'not much happens in x amount of pages' is a real problem for me too since I only have time to update one page a week! The story isn't suited to being that far apart but I guess it's all I can do
On the other hand though- people can choose to read the updates whenever they want- I know I do that, I'll wait for a month then catch up once the person has gotten a decent way ahead of me
so the posting once a week or whatever really is just to keep track of what you're doing and get on that 'new' page as much as possible

I'm guessing you do your stuff all at once so like, you do all of your sketches for a chunk and then do all of the lines etc ?
That would make it a bit more awkward with the more frequent updates but you could take a short break in your posting to get ahead and then post things a few pages at a time but far more frequently?
I don't know I'm just blabbering on a bit now haha

I think people get fans a lot more easily on here when they post a lot though- even stuff like sketch dumps, doodles and just random other drawings- for me I find it gets people who don't read your comic more interested in the characters before they even read the comic?

I've been trying to mix up the process, honestly.  I used to do my pages like you said, sketch everything, go back, ink everything, go back, color everything...but I've found that it's (somehow) been a bit more productive if I do sketch/ink/color all at once, then go back and do backgrounds and shading after that.  One thing that helps a lot, especially for outdoor scenes, is doing background templates like they do in movies, where you have one giant background set and then just paste the particular part of it that you need into the panel.  For indoor stuff, if it's a short scene, I just do BG-per-panel art.  If it's a long scene, I'll do a template regardless.  A 360 view and then certain other views if they're necessary, like close-ups of stuff.

But yeah, I totally feel ya on the updates.  I'm the same way.  I let Berserk go for like 6 months and then came back and basked in the glory that is Falconia.

I've thought about doing more frequent updates despite how I've formatted the flow of my chapters (I have, literally, every chapter written out in full book format right now, so all I have to do is go back and draw what I've already written down) so it feels weird to break my chapters down into like 5 paragraph chunks that I translate into artwork, then go back and do it again.  There are some areas where the scenes change that often if multiple groups are involved at any given time, but it's a bit harder when you're doing one big stretch involving only one group.  Right now, the story is pretty focused on my main 3 people, and they're all together, so it's not so easy to break stuff down.  After Ch13 or so, there are a lot more players on the stage, so it's easier to stagger things.

I'll probably try to work out making shorter updates here anyway just cuz it's more fun to get feedback, than to wait like 2 months between updates, even if people insist that it's worth it because of how much stuff they get to read all at once.  It's super rewarding, either way.

Hay so I saw your comment under some journal about advertising comics... If I would want to start reading the comic, where should I start? Bc it's really late here and there's no obvious link to it and I'd really like to check it out :)
KoltirasRip Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ah!  All the links to all the places I post are on my DevID, so you can pick which site works best for your browser (as I've learned that people's internet is a bit persnickety with different pages.)

Thanks for your interest!
