Enjoy another preview of the redo. I'm at 16 pages sketched out so far. It's going to be a LONG chapter I can tell. :) But I'm happy about it and that's what matters!

Nice! :D
@AnonymousMe: I appreciate that! :)
@Zorrieku: Thanks! I'll still post some sneak peak sketch pages and stuff :)
@Riaya: I won't I wanted to try getting it all done by January if possible, but we'll see. I always forget action scenes take me forever to draw out. So much planning.
@ImmortalDreams: Thank you! This really lifted my spirits :)
As promised ! Progress pictures! Actually, it's the whole big messy page! :) I might make the future ones smaller though... This is actually a bit more refined for a page sketch than what I normally do, but I wanted to make sure the sketches were as close to being final before I go through and begin inking that way I don't waste time or energy having to re-sketch a page.

Hope you guys are as excited about this reboot of chapters 1 and 2 as I am :) I've been having a lot of fun with the story flow, it is SO much better.

That apartment is gorgeous
Aw poor guy. Its just a mess now isnt it?
Today's page is in color because... I'm going to be taking a hiatus. Yes, that's right. I'm taking a break. Why, you ask? WELL-


Don't be angry...

I'm completely rewriting chapters 1, 2, and the very beginning of 3.

"But Janaka, you've restarted like five times already, why this again?!"

To answer that question, I've been learning all these years how to make a better comic and story. Now that I can actually write scripts that work for me as an outline I discovered that my first few chapters lacked any pull that would entice new readers into the story. Not to mention that since I started this version, the entire story is finally taking a shape that I like and the first few chapters do NOT reflect the direction I have now for the story. I did try editing the text to help, but alas, there's a lot more that I need to change and cut to make it flow and be better overall. I was going to try doing both Ch 6 updates and redrawing the chapters, but in order to make ch. 6 make sense, which I'm still going to work on during the hiatus, I need to majorly fix the chapters beforehand.
I've been struggling with this decision for a while, especially after I watched a video that talked about why the first episode in anime is important. One idea from it talked about how it sets the tone for the entire show and what care will be given to the story and characters and I feel I got some character stuff down okay, but my story was lacking, and my pacing was suffering too. I have already rewritten the scripts which will be available for Patreon supporters because this hiatus affects their rewards. I will ALSO be loading ch. 6 pages as they get done onto patreon as rewards, since those that support me are paying me and I would like to maintain that relationship while I'm redrawing the chapters. So, if you absolutely MUST have updates go support me on Patreon!


In other news, I'll post un-chaptered updates for you guys with progress shots on here and if you follow the facebook page for Moonlight Apparition I'll be posting there too! I do want to keep everyone in the loop because I'm excited about this. It's been like a weight on my conscience, and I don't want to disappoint you guys, I want to deliver the best product I can and tell the best story I can. So thank you for your patience and enjoy today's page! :D

@ImmortalDreams: for whatever reasons, the view form part at the end is not staying with the link. So if you copy paste the entire link it'll work.
I'm surprised that no one has tried coming into the bathroom on them yet hahaha.

What do you need for the posters stuff? Or are you planning on raiding willing participants sites for things?

Please go to that link and click what age group you're in! I'm curious to know what my average reader age is :) Also, I might do more polls in the future too for other things.

I appreciate it! Thanks!
@Riaya: Southwest Oregon. :)
Sorry for not uploading this last week. I ended up binge reading a book about emotional intelligence and cried like a baby over my own emotional maturity.

In other news, my trip to see the eclipse in totality went great! It was very awesome and I can see why people chase after it, it is a unique experience and my entire state on the west side is literally on fire. There's fires happening ALL around us. Yesterday I could literally see pieces of ash raining down. Pretty scary stuff.

Enjoy this weeks update! :D

Awww poor kiddo
Finally starting the next chapter! I'm excited a bit for it, but I've been having trouble writing my scenes so I apologize for any choppy scenes coming up. It's all a learning process :')

Also, My family and I are going to visit some other family in Central Oregon for the Eclipse and it's going to be a heavy traffic mess, so pray for us some safe and fast travels!
