The Life of Alexis Perkins

The Life of Alexis Perkins

An LGBT comic about a girl named Alexis Perkins who is a young trans girl who also struggles with Asperger's Syndrome - a form of Autism. The story is about her senior year of high school and possibly beyond. The story tells her story through the eyes of her and her friends. It tells of the ups and downs of her life, including the prejudice she faces from those she should have been able to trust most to accept her.

The story features the authoresses attempt to show a plethora of lesser known orientations (such as Quoiromantic/sexual, demiromantic/sexual, aromantic/sexual, etc.) and thus will feature a heavy amount of non-straight characters. It also features strong language, sexual themes, nudity, and possible triggering scenes. The comic also features both religious and anti-religious tones. The comic is rated PG-13 at the low end, but is likely higher, near a possible R rating due to some events that will be featured in the comic.

Viewer discretion is advised. The authoresses of the comic do not take responsibility for someone being triggered, upset, or offended by the comic.

I don't get why these two are together. Rosalia is so hot while Elisa looks so pasty and plain.

And so we begin chapter 10! This is a special two-part chapter (along with 11) that occur simultaneously. Chapter 10 will focus on one side of the story while 11 will focus on the other side of the story.
Updates
Since a lot of questions have risen with our update schedule.

We hope to get to at least a weekly update in january and fabruary.

Life finally having calmed down and some changes in the workflow of creation should fix our on and off schedule.

Thanks for sticking with us <3

@FallingStar: Thanks for thinking with us!
The things you mention are definitely worth considering.

At the moment new pages are being produced, and a new workflow I created seems to be a time saver. (where color is still an option)

We hope to at least start updating weekly again this month, and then try to keep that up.

If that fails, your suggestions are one of the things we are planning on trying :)
Ren and Em, would it be possible to switch the format to something easier to draw? Perhaps black and white, or just the line-art? I understand you both want to deliver a quality product and I respect that, but "quality" can also mean "timeliness in schedule". This is particularly important when trying to build the popularity of your comic over the Internet; irregular updates and short attention spans rarely jive.

Perhaps you could do it a bit like newspaper comics, where most of them, the ones with a lot of dialogue and exposition, and very little movement on the narrative or character development, are done with just line-art, or even smaller with fewer panels, but the more important ones (like the Sunday pages) can be done in full size and full colour. This might make things easier on the artist and allow for an easier to achieve schedule.

Just a thought. <3
@Dragonrider: We are sad to hear you will be giving up the comic due to the hiatus. Please take this bag of wonderful treats with you as you move on to read other comics. Of course, this comic is also produced entirely for free, so really, stay or leave and you're getting your money's worth. Of course, if more people donated over Patreon, this money could go to helping to pay for Ren to continue to focus on the comic, instead of needing a job and other such things for survival. Comic production would increase drastically even. Still, if you feel as though a product being given to you for free is not meeting your expectations, you have no obligations to stick around and continue to ingest it. Thank you for sticking through until now, and may your days be brighter in the future.

@Dragonrider: I know, it seems to take forever ^^'

Mostly due to fault on my side. I've moved to a different country a few months back, it took up a lot more time then I had in mind.
On that note, seeing as I've had a new start I'm also looking at how to produce the comic and what is a priority in my daily life. The comic is still being worked on, but on a different format in planning as before.
I am now trying to work in 'bulk' on pages, so once I've finished a set, there will be consistent updates again.

Short term this is not ideal, and I understand that. I am hoping that this will fix long term problems and we won't have to go with long no update stretches anymore.

TLDR; Life got in the way, we are working on it :)
@Dragonrider: The answer is quite simple, dragon. The story will continue when Ren is capable of making pages again. With her move, then followed by the holiday months, things have been hectic on her side. We are posting some fun side stuff that she's done so as not to make the drought of pages feel too empty. You're always welcome to help by producing some guest comics or something, though.

Do you ever intend to get back to the story, or are you going to continue to post trash and tripe?
@rensje: You're welcome. So far, this was the only one I noticed like that, out of the ones already uploaded on the site.

@Hippocampus: oh haha you are right!
I think its in all of these then, did not pay super atention to details due to these originally being for reference only. Will fix them asap, thanks for noticing!

@Hippocampus: Oops, so they are haha I'll let Ren know.
Hey Ren, dunno if you're aware of this or not, but Rosalia's eyes are transparent in this picture, and you can see the gridlines in them.
