Okay! So... I haven't updated in almost a year and I feel TERRIBLE about that. I don't even know what happened. There was an OCT and moving boxes and visiting family and just... so much stuff, as well as a major artist's block and lack of motivation (which is what originally caused me to stop working on the comic).
A quick update: I am changing the font in all the current pages to Steel City Comic, which can be found at 1001Fonts.com
, and it's free for commercial use. I changed it because the previous font, Comic Book, was not, and I want to be precautious in case I ever do make money off my art. I'm also snipping out the scene that page 5 transitions to (with Boss and the Chief alone in his office) because I found it took the focus away from the first scene too quickly and may have confused the narrative. I decided to go ahead and do this since I'm still so early in the drawing process. I can afford to redo one more page.
Also, one good thing that has happened since I "left" (I never really left, I just wasn't drawing comics): My YouTube channel
is finally active and I have a schedule and plans and such. I unfortunately do not have a schedule set for the comic updates yet because I don't know if I can do five pages a week yet, and one page per week sounds agonizingly slow for the viewers. So I'm sticking to uploading whenever I finish a five-page bulk, but the difference this time is that I am integrating the work into my schedule. I will upload videos every Thursday, and in between making videos I will draw as much as possible, whether it's the comic or personal art or commissions. This does not mean the bulks will be uploaded every week, it just means I will definitely be working on them every week. But I am determined to get back on this comic. It's time to get JR off the ground.
Thanks to anyone who has been watching the comic for being so patient. I hope it's not too late for you to enjoy the story. =3
