Pardon me, but is this page published out of order? The first half of "Bye" does not seem to exist yet.^_^;

@Lady Celest Emily: I didn't post the TDOR page until recently, everything else was posted a year ago. So I had to shift yesterdays normal post up by a day, so putting 2/2 makes people go back a page and see the one they missed. They werent intended to actually be a 2 post originally, given that one is the day before and one is the day after. My bad.

@GreenKrog: I see. Considering this comic updated regularly each day, I assumed you simply were rather enthusiastic about drawing each page, and te recent ones on Smack Jeeves were new pages. Were they originally posted on another medium? Though I must ask; where would the previous part be? The page previous is called 'Darkness'.

@Lady Celest Emily: I am somewhat enthusiastic about drawing every week day, but I am posted till the end of Oct 2015. I am pretty behind because I took a few weeks off due to major life issues. Which is why I try to keep so far ahead - if I get hit by a truck and it takes 6 months to heal my arms, I wouldn't be able to draw, right?

This is the first medium I use for all purposes, though I do carbon copy to Comic Fury when I am done fixing the current week's pages. So if my arms do break, they will be without updates. Here, if my arms break, you get to see what happens if I don't fix the stuff I posted a year ago.

@GreenKrog: You're nearing the end of pre-drawn pages then? It's good to be prepared, I suppose, though I certainly do hope your arms won't break. ˆ_ˆ;

I love this comic. and I must say, it is more than a good substitute in the absence of Venus Envy. I dare say it is positively compelling. I hope you can continue drawing while I also hope you will be well as you do so. May the very best of fortune be with you. :)

(Do forgive my awkwardness, if you can.)

@Lady Celest Emily: Er, no, I am 11 months ahead. Not quite the same as a 12 month buffer, mind you, but still pretty far ahead.

I am glad you like this comic and find value in it. I hope you have also looked under the 'other stuff' section above for a full listing of trans web comics - there are a whole lot of them, and often by artists who know how to art!

@GreenKrog: I'm glad you still have much material to post then.

I have read a couple, though it seems there are still many good comics out there. Still, I like yours for the storyline. The art style is interesting too. ;)

Fonts

reply

Having all the characters have different fonts is a good idea, and I don't know why comic books haven't been doing it all along. It's a good way to communicate different voices that, if heard, would be distinct from one another.

Do you think you can copyright the idea? :D

@Siva: It is hard to keep consistent fonts between computers and publishers. I have three computers I work on and sometimes I am missing a font on one that I need on another, so if I need to adjust it I need to go and get the font from the initial computer. It is a lot of hassle and a lot of time and overhead.
Ignoring this, having only one font for all purposes makes it so that you know exactly how it will print visually at all times. There is no guesswork if you need to make a bubble bigger or smaller or change the bold/italic, which many fonts will not allow.

Essentially, I put in *way* more effort than anyone logically should, because I am better at words than I am at drawing so it is sometimes easier to use fonts than to draw people.

Also, some other comics do use other fonts. I stole my idea from Rain, who uses italics for the main character and not for anyone else.
