Updates Finished… For Now

January 25th, 2009

OK, as far as I’m aware, all of page conversions have been made, so now my entire archives are in a 3w by 2h format versus the previous 2w by 3h format. This will make it easier to read the entire page on computer screens without having to scroll much. Now although I’m finished with reformatting my pages, updating my archives is a process that is never finished until I’ve absolutely completed Moose River. The next stage of my updates is to go through my older pages and remove the lines that are in the backgrounds, which is a shading method I used to use before I started halftoning my pages. You’ll notice this line shading in my earlier pages but I stopped using them about a third of the way into my archives. Fortunately this is an archive updating process that won’t take long, but it’s still one that I need to accomplish in order to keep all my pages looking uniform. I’ll probably start on that sometime in the near future.

In this time I’ve been waiting for myself to be inspired to draw new pages again. I think I am now. The thing is, I’ve since come to realize that the webcomic format just isn’t for me, mostly because I find it impossible to continually work on new pages on a regular schedule. That’s just not how my brain and system work. I tend to only work on pages whenever I feel inspired to work on them, and that inspiration comes and goes on its own whim. That’s why sometimes I can go like five months straight with constant two to three times a week updates, and then other times I can go three months without working on a single page (just like recently). I can’t help it, but again, it’s obvious that this webcomic method and style just isn’t for me… my style is more suited towards spending my time writing a single book and releasing a book once every few years.
