Ramien's plan #1

Sup guys, after plotting out the next 30 or so pages I realised that, to progress the plot smoothly, I need more content per page than I had; so I've switched to 4 rows instead of 3 for now. (I'll probably use 3 rows for more "artistic" pages);

I guess this means that each individual page has more content, which is good. :)

But yeah, as said, I have over 30 pages plotted out now which should make it easier for me to get started on pages, as I don't have to sit around thinking what's "necessary" before I start.

In other good news, I almost have every single character necessary for this arc sprited too and have a very _very_ clear idea how the story should progress, meaning I won't be forced to do stuff like filler-ish pages where nothing happens when I'm not sure what to do next.

Isn't that swell?

Either way, comment, post on forums, vote or do whatever, anything to keep the website/comic alive is good. :)

the voting is going pretty bad for you

1987: Penguin - Sunday, December 5 2010 - 4:09 AM

Well, I'VE been voting, I don't know about you guys.

I'm voting all day, geez.
There are just fewer of us. :V

That's kinda sad ... did I kill my readerbase by updating less? :/

I was hoping that I'd avoid that by at least updating every week reliably.

I think the reason you've dropped so low is that, back when you were updating super-frequently, most readers, dedicated and non-dedicated alike, would come to the site every day to check for a comic. Now, those non-dedicated fans are coming just once a week, and so only vote once a week. Hence, fewer votes.

I've been voting pretty much everyday (except over American Thanksgiving, when I was too stuffed to reach a computer).

1991: Neoriceisgood - Sunday, December 5 2010 - 8:29 AM

I guess the "non-specific time"-update schedule with a promise of several per week is a good way to increase traffic and thus votes.


I think that once internship is over and I can post several pages per week it'll go better again anyway.

Nice new page. Keep it up!

Yeah, this is my absent-mindedly-click-when-internet-browsing link on my link bar.

Awesome news and awesome chapter.
Well done. :D

I like them news. Also, no filler means awesome, so yay.

I noticed several speech bubbles that cover other characters' speech bubbles, making it a bit hard to read at times. I'm not sure which ones were intentional, but some look like they just don't have enough space.

Likin' the prisoners' sprites. Plus, we may just get to see the release of The Mysterious Three.

Haha, it would seem Lacey has some temper issues. Remind me not to try talking to him while he has a sword in his hand.
