I've been rather quiet for a while! I realize that. I didn't make any big announcement on the one year anniversary or anything. I've realized that for now I can't focus so heavily on this comic all the time, so I ended up making a really big queue and this is the first time in a long time that I've been drawing new pages. You can probably tell that it looks a little cleaner.
But anyway, even if this comic hasn't become anything big yet (though I'll probably properly advertise it again sometime in the future) I've really appreciated what I have now. I'd like to thank everyone who's stuck around with it, and especially the people who have commented or messaged me about it.
I just feel like I need to say that.
Anyway, tomorrow is my birthday. Which isn't really relevant, but it's funny that I ended up making this message the day before then. Makes it feel more significant. And less like this was just some arbitrary day that I decided to say all of this.
@ILeninVelikyNamPutOzaril: no they're basically completely separate. it's sort of just a copy of blair except they're more open to suggestion because they're supposed to learn to copy robert.
@ILeninVelikyNamPutOzaril: the answer to that is gonna be pretty obvious if it isn't already. blair is uh... sort of pushing the limit as far as the implications i'll allow in this without marking the comic as adult.
@ILeninVelikyNamPutOzaril: that's how their thought process works. in their mind, everything after the initial inspiration is obvious (giving people food -> the food should be connected to the show -> then robert should be the food -> then the food should be something with an interesting texture -> turn robert into ice cream). they're assuming the audience will fill in the details automatically, so to them, it's a perfectly understandable answer
i love the face in the last panel
It's been a while since I've drawn a new page and I feel like Blair looks significantly cuter now. So does Robert. My only actual art goal is to draw cute things and you can really tell because the characters look great and the backgrounds look bad. Priorities
I wonder how many people are going to state the obvious here.
Finally done with that long hiatus! I'm sorry to sacrifice some quality and stop coloring it, but there was absolutely no way I was going to get around to cleaning things up without a huge burst of motivation, and I'm sort of tired of waiting for that motivation. Uploads will be every Wednesday at 12 PM, and may increase in frequency if i feel I can handle it. I hope it was worth the wait, though I know I've inevitably lost a lot of readers by now. So it goes, I suppose.
I've been so off track and all over the place lately, it's like every day I want to do something different and end up focusing all my time and energy on it until I tire myself out. I guess I've always been like that. The bad news is, the things I've been focusing on lately have not been my comic. I might start putting out some more unconventional content in an effort to keep myself interested, or the upload schedule will remain inconsistent for a while. I know I've been saying this on like every page lately, but I do apologize. I wish I could do more for those of you who stick around. Hopefully when things pick up again, they'll pick up at full force.
The lighting on the other pages didn't look all that good, so I think I'll do flat coloring. Also, sorry for not uploading yesterday! But I appreciate everyone's patience and support.
The best thing about it being in color is Robert's blush.
How does everyone feel about the color style? I actually don't really like it. But it'll only be for the "talk show" parts (or maybe just for this one if people really don't like it).
Just one upload again today, too. I'm hesitant to officially move to one per day though, because I think this talk show part would be better if I did more at once. I might make the question answering part a lot simpler in order to get through it - I don't want to rush, but at the same time this chapter has been going on for a really long time, and I think only getting one page per day for this kind of thing would be painful. So maybe just a sort of "chat bubbles with tiny Blair and Robert icons" thing will work, as much as I wish I could do it more like a proper comic.
In general I've been feeling weird and a bit unmotivated, so I might try and experiment with some little bonus stuff - maybe like Miitopia stuff. It wouldn't be "canon," just a silly little situation with the characters. Something to break up the pace for both me and the audience.
I don't know, either way, I hope everyone's been enjoying this even if I've been kind of out of it lately. The excitement of having a new, quickly-growing comic has worn off, the smackjeeves reader count has been going down, and since it's my first time doing something like this there's a lot of uncertainty. It's probably just part of making comics, or making anything, really. But you know, still feels bad the first time around, especially stacked on top of my already existing tendency towards anxiety. I'll get through it though. Thanks to everyone who's sticking around! I'll make it worth it to you somehow.
You know, originally I was gonna let him cheat, black out for the rest of the game, then end up winning a lifetime supply of candy that would be more trouble than it's worth. But then I reread it all and Blair popped up like, "whoa, wait, hold on a second," and this happened. That's fine though, this is much better.
Only one page right now because it's 3 am and my head feels weird. I've been kinda thrown off lately, a lot of anxiety stuff coming back, but I'm doing what I can. I'll try and get on top of things again as soon as possible, I hate being inconsistent like this.
This is sort of a weird page so it's fine to not color it like this right...? It's 4 am and I'm tired. That 2 pages per day thing has caught up to me. But after dropping reader count so drastically after not uploading for a few days, I feel like I really HAVE to stay consistent from now on.
Anyway, Robert is surprisingly going along with this pretty easily. I say surprisingly because I didn't even think it'd be this way. I guess "it's just to win" and "I've gotten eaten by a zombie before, this isn't that different" are good enough excuses for him. Or maybe that's just how persuasive the queen is? Either way... what are you doing, Robert?
@ILeninVelikyNamPutOzaril: she's just a part of this game show scenario
It's not so much that he's easy to fool... He's pretty aware of things. Is that better or worse than just being tricked?
Always trust the candy queen. She only wants what's best for you!
Sorry for the long wait! She had to be fashionably late, you know?
