Hands are very hard to draw, though some positions are easier to draw then others

Well, it would make sense with how she feels about Chris.

@00Stevo: Oh wow, that's kind of cool, actually. I've got autism as well (Aspergers). Nice to meet a fellow autistic webcomic author ^^

That said, on the aspect of art changing in the comic, I think maybe if you ever published a book version of the comic and really felt like you need to update the art, updating it for the book might be good. But as your art will undoubtedly continue to improve, updating older pages now would make you want to do it again later when your art improves again, eventually leading to a loop of constant art updating and eventual burn out for yourself.

@EmilyAnnCoons: That's one of the reasons I don't want to re-draw. I like having older art on the earlier page as it shows improvement like you said, but art changing can break the flow. As the other thing, English is my only language, but I have both ADHA, ADD and I think I also have autism (haven't really been tested for that)

Well, art errors can be fixed, but at the same time, having art errors in older stuff is pretty much guaranteed. You're always improving, after all. Keeping it that way can help you notice how much you've improved.

About the only thing I feel does need some fixing is the grammar, but I also don't really ever want to bring that up as I'm guessing English isn't your first language. The best I could do would be to offer my services as a better reader, but I also don't want to be like "You need someone to fix your grammar, so you need to have me do it." Like... I would want the offer to sound beneficial and serene as opposed to coming off as though I'm being snotty, you know?

I have no idea if any of that makes sense the way I had it in my head... I just enjoy the comic and want to see it do good haha

I'm considering re-drawing most of the comic as I've noticed art errors on such on older pages, but I'm not sure. Thoughts?

500 pages and 30 chapters! I can't believe I've already done 500 pages, and I still have a long way to go with the comic (might make it to 1000 before the end) But there is something I've been thinking of. I'm thinking about changing how I do the pages, I'm haven't been to happy with the recent pages, I'm also entrusted in changing from PaintoolSAI to something else, anyone know of a good art drawing program that has text support and allows me to place pre-drawn speech balloons.
