@gizumimipichu: anywhere from 3 to 12 hours, depending on what I have to draw, how many panels there are, and whether or not my laptop corrupts the save file. :v

@Flabbergastrodon: no its not. It's behind the paper. You can see his tie at the bottom of both panels.

Sorry it's a bit late today, I procrastinated. :)
Comment on Ramble of Idano
PhantomCat, November 20 2014 01:23 am
First of all, I'm sorry to get your hopes up as far as an update goes. Technically, it's still an update, but not a continuation to the story I had going on up until this point, but I feel the need to put this here where all of you will see it, as the news section tends to go unnoticed.

So, a lot of you have come to the site of my other comic, RAD, to ask about Idano. Please don't do that. If you have a question referring to the future of Idano, you can post it here. I get emails every time a comment comes up, I read them all, I will know when one of you has put something here.

Now, the thing you all have asked about is when Idano will next have a story update. Let me explain to you, I am in college full time, and I have a job. My schedule is extremely busy at this point in time, and being as I am working on a different webcomic at the moment, I literally do not have enough hours in the day to write, draw, and manage two separate webcomics simultaneously.

Let me explain why I am choosing to work on RAD instead of Idano.
RAD is planned out sufficiently so that I know where I'm going with it. It has a working story that I am happy with, characters that I like and enjoy drawing and writing for, and it's overall relaxing for me to work on. Now Idano, I had no specific game plan at all from the very start. It started on a whim one day, and I though I would be able to one-shot a complex story(or several) and make it work. I was mistaken in this, and one large reason I stopped was that I stopped enjoying what I was doing with it. DOn't get me wrong, I still love these characters, but the predicament I threw them into is setting up to be nothing but drama and stress for the rest of eternity, and I am not prepared to deal with that. I am rewriting Idano from the ground up, very, VERY slowly. I want this comic to be fun for me, and interesting for you, and I apparently achieved one of those things with the story we've been on all this time. I do not want to work on something that I hate working on. I don't want to make a comic that feels like a chore. The world has not been explored even remotely enough to gather that it isn't Earth, when that should have been apparent from the get-go. Every character interaction in the plots here is filled with melodrama and melancholy, and I have no idea how to write that in the long term. This chapter specifically, people are always either fighting, or being sad pandas. This gets SO tiring to write, you guys, I am not mentally capable of doing it and keeping my sanity.

All that said, Idano will update eventually. It could be in a few months, it'd more likely be in a year or more. Keep in mind, I don't get help with my endeavors. Every comic I have ever made has been me, and only me. That's an enormous burden to carry, especially with so many of you expecting updates, but frankly, my education and my mental health come before anything.

At least one of you has told me that you thought I was giving this up because my Pokemon comic is more popular. FOr anyone else that might feel that way, I want to be very clear that I work on my Pokemon comic because I want to and that is litterally the end of it. It's helping me grow as an artist, as well as storyteller, and being disciplined to stay on a schedule. Working on RAD will help me in the long term to do better justice to Idano, when I eventually get around to it.

I hope this is an adequate explaination for you. Please, for the love of God, stop asking about it on RAD. I get emails when you comment on Idano, so I know every time you post here. If you must ask, please do it here or through a private message, so I can keep the discussion going on for my other comic relevant to that comic, not this one.

If you feel you must unfavorite my comic, please do it. I won't feel bad if you do. Thank you all for your continued support and interest in this project, and I hope I see you around when I reboot it.


TL;DR: Idano is on hiatus until furthernotice because life sucks and days are too short. In the process of a VERY SLOW reboot, might take a few years, stop asking about it on my other comic.

@Seiryuu no Kibachiyo: Not really sure what you mean by that, but if you mean what I think you mean, I always give chapter covers their own week. Gives me time to collect my thoughts and generate more buffer so we dont end up with another hiatus.

He might even be a worse liar than Avis.
<p> This marks the end of Chapter 3. In a couple weeks, we'll be starting up on Chapter Four, where the chapters will presumably start being longer, and we'll make some progress on the story line!

@Axies: well, he's a levitator and also a ghost, so it's a combination jump slash fly combo! 8U
