Updates and Observations

Alright, so after some struggling, I've got the next page to the comic nearly finished. It will be out tomorrow afternoon/evening!

First I would like to say that I really appreciate everyone's patience with me. I know it's frustrating to only get 1 page at a time like this, and especially to be kept waiting so long for the sex scenes, ha ha. But I would like to once again reassure you all that no matter what, this comic will get finished. I can promise you that with the utmost confidence.

Also, I'm pretty much over my cold, thank goodness. I spent nearly the entire weekend sleeping, which was good for my cold, but bad for my getting anything done, heh. I felt really lazy  =_=

I'd like to talk about some things I've observed about making a comic, too, just for fun. These may or may not be coherent sentences, as I'm jotting down thoughts as they come, pretty much:

Whenever I draw, I always draw a different character for every picture, pretty much. Even my own fursona look very different from picture to picture. Drawing a comic, I have to draw the same character, consistently, over and over, and it's far more difficult than I thought. Making something the same, twice, is incredibly difficult, though I am getting better at it slowly. But more than that, it's frustrating. My hands and eyes are getting sick of drawing the same characters repeatedly, even though overall I'm enjoying drawing Twincest.

In addition, I'm used to drawing things partially as an outlet for an emotion, or a technique I want to try, etc. This comic is not a form of expression of much for me. I'm expressing a desire to finish something big, and expressing an interest in this fetishy twincest relationship, but nothing deep enough to keep me engaged the way my other drawings do. I end up doing a lot of side doodling, to vent, if you will.

And lastly, dialogue is hard to write, holy crap. The farther I take this comic away from the original, the harder it is to write dialogue and not feel like it's the corniest line since a row of corn in a field. My goodness.

Alright, that's all I've got. Looking forward to getting that next page out, and I'll try to keep the page after more on time, too. Thanks again everyone!

Twincest, as a fetish, is awesome.  I have a couple twincest couples of my own.  As a comic, I think you're doing a great job.  I checked out what the original artist had completed and I like what they did, but I really like your rendition and I'm glad it's getting completed (hopefully).

The consuming half will always be greedier and greedier, that's a part of the way the modern brain works, and why teams are usually required to keep a steady information flow going to give the consumer their "fix".  The creative side can only go as fast as it can go; if we get impatient, do your best to ignore us; again, I'm just grateful to see this comic revamped, and *hopefully* finished.

Interesting side thoughts; the story goes that the first wasn't finished as the artist got fed up with all the clamoring demands for "MOAR NOW!!!" (which is why I harp on this, I'm worried the same might happen), I almost wonder though if they went through the same stuff you're going through now.  Hopefully you'll be able to find something expressive and motivating about the project, aside from just "I really want to finish what I start"...

GREAT stuff thus far, keep faith :-)

According to the original artist, they stopped because life and health issues were interfering. However, it makes people look like ungrateful jerks when they demand MOAR NOW! Artists are people and they aren't obligated to draw you porn for free. I wish people would remember that, regardless of whether or not a particular artist is bothered by it or not.

Totally understood.  I don't really mind waiting at all, with the quality and time with which you put into this project we really can appreciate the need to wait.  You do an excellent job and have worked hard to maintain a superior quality in this project.  Waiting in reality is greatly worth the pleasure of seeing your rendition of this work which was never finished in the quality or time your putting into it.  Far as I'm concerned you can take all the time you want, more power to you.

"...the corniest line since a row of corn in a field." ...Pretty corny analogy.

I kid, of course. I DO want to say, though, that you're doing a great job, and I'm certainly nothing if not patient. Also, sometimes being lazy can feel soooo good.

Ha ha, I know, right? I'm a pretty big go-getter with getting stuff done, but sometimes I just want to take three days off from the world, lol

Well, I just want to say that your work is appreciated, and as far as corny lines go, some of the sweetest things my ex said I said were some of the largest balls of corn in my own head. It all comes down to timing and emotion, I think; if you say them with sincerity, it'll generally work out. Afaik, dialogue writing is like acting without the acting: you still have to get inside the character's head (it's how I wrote some of my stories that I thought were good, although I no longer have them due to that laptop frying on me about six years ago T_T).  Thank you, however, for sharing your creative process with us; again, you're appreciated.

Thank you very much. And I agree, I've felt the same way with my mate, in that a lot of the sweetest things he's said could in fact sound very corny outside of their natural circumstance.
