Oh hi there. I'm late...again... ^^() Sorry about that. I'm working on that, I have a calendar on my desktop now to hopefully keep me more on track.
Oh and new layout. I'm doing the comic mostly grayscale from now one (it's faster than color) but panels introducing new characters will be in color. The rest of this chapter is redone to fit this format as well.
Also, I'm really excited because I'm going to eventually get New Friend published as a comic book. Self-published of course, but still. Chapters 1 and 2 are being redone (not at the expense of weekly updates though, I promise to do my best to keep updating on time) in this format and style so everything will be as consistent as possible for the final draft.
Still need your votes on the polls page:
please keep it in color.
What Ult said.
You can keep the current B&W/Colour format for now, but you could recolour the panels after the chapter is done.
@Ultimate the Hedgehog: It's my comic...it looks fine black and white and it's easier and faster than color. Especially on a chapter like this with 15+ characters all with different color schemes.
@Kirbysmith [DJ]: Making it black and white after the fact completely defeats the point of doing it in black and white which is to get things done faster and easier.
Guys, sorry if you don't like that I'm not doing everything in color anymore but...too bad. I don't have that much time anymore and this is faster. Plus the final print copy is going to be black and white.
I just...what? No support? Okay then...moving on. It's going to be mostly grayscale, sorry.
I'm personally just fine with greyscale. as long as I can tell who's who I'm good.
That's what the teacher always told me at reading time ^^
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH IT'S STILL FOLLOWING ME!
@Fiora Aroura: Same.
@mdg245: Same as aqua said.
The Grayscale I was wondering about. Then when I saw the explanation, I got OK with it.
@aqua the hedgie: Okay that's good then :)
@Fiora Aroura: Yeah my teacher too ^^
@Fusion Kirby: Yeah, color just takes a long time. Glad you're okay with it.
heres the thing. when you start off with something better (in this case, full color) people get used to it, and only hope for improvement.
you started out with sprites with decent effects. then you upgraded to drawing. that was an amazing improvement. now youve gone down to graystyle. thats not an upgrade. thats a step backwards. its like lets say TV decides to go back to showing all shows in a black and white format. or humans utring back into monkeys. no one will like that.
@Ultimate the Hedgehog: Here the thing, I just moved to another frickin country and started a college level academic program than requires much of my time, plus I've started things outside of school like swimming that also take up much of my time.
I'm redoing the whole thing to be the same way. And I'm not changing my mind. And as to no one liking that, I've had a few nice fans support me in this choice because they realize I have a life outside of this comic and that the comic will still have quality even if it doesn't have color.
It's my comic. Not yours. If you're not happy with it, then sorry. I never had to share this story with anyone, but I wanted to. But the thing is, I just DON'T HAVE THE TIME to do this all in color anymore, I just don't. Maybe I'll do a couple of chapters in color like during the summer but for now you're just gonna have to deal with it.
@Ultimate the Hedgehog:
It's her comic, her choice whether it's colour or BW, I couldn't care less either way.
Especially when it's a story, and you should focus on character and plot more.
And character and plot is great so far.
By the way, this page was adorable.
@.:AuraX:.: Thank you :)
@Ultimate the Hedgehog: Hey, um sorry if I sounded arrogant or anything, but I really don't have much time to work on this anymore. But I really want to keep updating so you guys can see some of the stuff I have planned for this comic. So yes, it's going to be gray scale for now. I hope you'll be able to move past that and continue to enjoy the comic.
Why, you're welcome. Any time.
