Where did it go?
I will be graduating college this May. I have stopped doing this webcomic (obviously) because I am unhappy with it. I still love my characters, and I love the stories and ideas I have in my head, I just need to organize, and tweak, and redo a lot of things. I really appreciate everyone who has stuck with this for so long, and kept it in their favorites. I just have a really bad time with that 'feeling accomplished once it's up online, rather than when it is done and I am happy with it' thing. I don't know if that makes any sense. In any case, I do plan on doing webcomics again someday. Right now I am doing the art thing in school, and in commissions, and soon in everything else, too, if things work out. If you are curious about what I've been up to, check out my website: www.hartleart.com. I am planning on doing a comic in my spare time, but it may not go up online right away, for reasons aforementioned. I am doing it so I can do some stylized work again, and hopefully get back in the groove of things.
I hope to see you again sometime. : )
Back in school! And website questions.
I don't know if anyone actually reads these News posts, but if you don't...y...you should. >__>;
I am back at school again, which means more desperate attempts to keep updating on schedule. I have pages backed up through the first week of February, and I'll probably draw more soon, but don't be surprised if there is a week or two (or three) of this semester where I have to attack you with fillers.
The good news is, I'm taking a software class this semester, which means me understanding Photoshop better, and perhaps that will translate into better digital pages and/or pics for PbM. I've already learned some nifty shortcuts -- Did you know that pressing the brackets decreases/increases brush size? : D (probably.)
In other news, I was wondering what you readers thought of an external website for PbM. Hopefully I could make it all spiffy and stuff and include extras and such and actually keep all of you up-to-date with my daily going-ons and post sketches and my schoolwork and WIPs and maybe even take commissions...
I could also affiliate with some of my favorite comics, some of which are done by friends of mine who might do crossovers with PbM in the future. : ] And maybe I could include a forum or something, if there's enough interest...Probably not in the beginning though, but I'll at least keep a comments section open.
I could also include an "about the author" page if anyone cares, and maybe even include old versions of PbM...
Please tell me what you think! : ]
I updated the comic archive and news page layouts with iScribble doodles. : ]
The end of chapter two!
It seems like it's taken me far too long to get this far, but I'm glad I have. The first time around I got to 5 chapters before going on hiatus and then deciding to redraw the comic. Well I won't be doing that this time around. Sure, I might redraw some comics here or there, but I'd like to get this thing DONE.
You may be happy (???) to know that that should be a while from now. I have lots more material planned this time; lots more characters, too. Hopefully you'll stick around long enough to see the end, but either way, I'm doing this comic for practice and because I love my characters. And for a few select friends of mine. <3
I'm going to try to update as consistently as possible, but at times my college life will keep me from doing that. For now, though, every Thursday check for a PbM update. And always let me know what you think! As I've said many times before, comments tend to keep me going. Also, suggestions can hopefully help me get a little better.
In any case...I hope you've enjoyed PbM so far and will continue to enjoy it. : ]
So I had planned on updating every other week on either Wednes, Thurs, or Fri. (usually Thurs and Fri)
Sometimes I will update weekly but I'm going with every other week for now to be safe (college takes a lot of my time)
And sometimes I will update with two pages (or more?) in a row.
But this week I'm late because of well...stress. >__>
I've got two pages drawn out, I just have to ink them. So I'll update soon!
It's been a while. Sorry about that. I'm distracted with college, other comics, etc. etc.
Anyway, I thought I would link you to some other comics I like, by my friends.
Thanks for reading.
Added a "Character" page in the navigation bar for character bios. C:
I created an image gallery. C:
So far it only has pics I drew for the old version of the comic, but I will add more in time -- including fan art or guest comics, if I ever get any. xD;
