cross-posted from my journal... sorry if you see this twice! [08 Feb 2005|11:44pm]

I did it.

I finally did it.

When I put ALGR on hiatus months ago, I thought I'd never pick it up again. I felt bad about that, but there was no use working on it if I wasn't feeling it anymore.

So, on one not-so-special day, meaning today, Shay bothered me about it, and I decided to sit down and work on it.

And a few hours later, it's done. Not the shiny polished online version that's listed as my website on LJ, but the raw version in my sketchbook. And that's enough for me. I feel proud now. I rarely complete things, and I did this.

I know my story now. It was a story about letting go. That's all there is to it. Letting go of all the pain in your life, of all the rejection and heartbreak and ultimately, letting go of EVERYTHING for the sake of the one you hold most dear. Some things are never lost, and some people never let go. This was a story that lived through an important time in my life, this was a lesson I had to learn.

And now I have learned it, and this story is completed. :)

Please don't bother me about the website right now, I have ideas for that as well. I no longer have the time to maintain a webcomic, but I would be willing to scan my raws (and tweak them), if that would appease everyone. :)

Would you guys like that? I mean, it's better than nothing.

Oops! I might as well get the news out about this before you all kill me. :(;;

first on the agenda: sorry about the update mix-up las week. I had my days mixed up, and thought it was tuesday when it was really wednesday... and I was so busy for the rest of the week I couldn't do it Friday. :{;;

And second: the update schedule is changing (again). 2 days, Monday and Friday. It is very likely that this will change and Wednesday will come back, however. Please don't kill me, I have a life like everyone else, and anyone who has ever done the comic thing knows that it can be hard. :(

I love you all! <3

one of my favorite parts of the manga.

come on, tarquinn SO had it coming. and as much as arisa is full of angst and depression, if you fuck with her enough she will do something about it. :D yay arisa.

hahaha, you'll notice on today's page arisa's barrettes are on the wrong side. :( i feel stupid now, but i'm far too lazy to change it. anyone want to make up a reason at to why her barrettes are on the wrong side? (besides the fact i'm retarded, i mean.)

also, i would <3 you if you made a fan contribution. ;D :(

Good news for the people who have been following ALGR since it was in my GJ:

new pages start June 12th! (well, 10th technically since i redid the opening page).

however, that is bad news for me since I'll have to stop slacking off.... boohoo. :(

Hi,

I hate to nag, but on April 19 you have the hand backward again. Can I suggest you get an action figure of some sort and use it as a reference when you draw? I know hands are tough, but if you practice you will get them. My suggestion is to not hide the hands at all in any strip for a week. Draw at least 2 hands per strip. You will be surprised how much better you are at the end of the week than the beginning. :D

That being said, I really like how you are pacing this comic. I read it every few days a couple strips at a time and it is paced just right. You have a real good talent at creating a mood and speaking in the mind of the character. Your drawing is coming along nicely. Keep it up!

Enjoying it [15 Apr 2004|07:45pm]

Hiya,

I wanted to let you know I'm enjoying the comic. I like the art style, although little things like the backwards hands in issue 3 are really annoying.

Given the choice of typed or hand written font, I like the handwritten, but could you make it a bit larger? I have a fairly large monitor and still have to work to read some of it. I'll keep on reading.

I like ALGR, especially because it inspired me to draw Rainbow Dreams (my own manga, hahaha. I should make a community about it when I get about 2302935829873 more pages done)

too bad Keenspace won't let me see the pretty pages of it! T__T

This manga is really cool. All must worship the manga! Well, not literally, but you gotta really really like it. 'cause it's cool. Cooler than me, but that's not saying much. But the manga is spiff! Spiffy even. Yes. ^_^
