The new title of the comic: REVEALED
I wanted to wait until I was sure, and had something nice to show you all before announcing the new title of what is now formally Justice Roulette.
Also tweaked the banner due to big focus changes. ;3
UPDATE: Moving back and changing name
Oops, I forgot to mention...
Okay for some reason I posted this blog and then it deleted all the content.
I'm still working on the comic. Here's the new domain: JUSTICE ROULETTE
Here's the blog explaining everything I've been doing while it looked like I was dead: Big Update
I'm sorry for not communicating better.
Also this website is going to become the backup/mirror for the new domain in case something goes wrong.
See you soon.
Okay! So... I haven't updated in almost a year and I feel TERRIBLE about that. I don't even know what happened. There was an OCT and moving boxes and visiting family and just... so much stuff, as well as a major artist's block and lack of motivation (which is what originally caused me to stop working on the comic).
A quick update: I am changing the font in all the current pages to Steel City Comic, which can be found at 1001Fonts.com, and it's free for commercial use. I changed it because the previous font, Comic Book, was not, and I want to be precautious in case I ever do make money off my art. I'm also snipping out the scene that page 5 transitions to (with Boss and the Chief alone in his office) because I found it took the focus away from the first scene too quickly and may have confused the narrative. I decided to go ahead and do this since I'm still so early in the drawing process. I can afford to redo one more page.
Also, one good thing that has happened since I "left" (I never really left, I just wasn't drawing comics): My YouTube channel is finally active and I have a schedule and plans and such. I unfortunately do not have a schedule set for the comic updates yet because I don't know if I can do five pages a week yet, and one page per week sounds agonizingly slow for the viewers. So I'm sticking to uploading whenever I finish a five-page bulk, but the difference this time is that I am integrating the work into my schedule. I will upload videos every Thursday, and in between making videos I will draw as much as possible, whether it's the comic or personal art or commissions. This does not mean the bulks will be uploaded every week, it just means I will definitely be working on them every week. But I am determined to get back on this comic. It's time to get JR off the ground.
Thanks to anyone who has been watching the comic for being so patient. I hope it's not too late for you to enjoy the story. =3
Re-planning and Re-drawing
I took a look back at my original script and realized that a lot went unexplained in the actual comic as well as some things later being rather juvenile-sounding and even badly written. The comic was too blocky with the 4-part plan thing going on (I plan WAY ahead). Now I'm going to mix things up a bit to give it a more natrually flowing structure, a deeper story, and actual exposition.
Beginning with CHAPTER 0, the entire comic will be re-drawn (which isn't much since I'm only at 20 pages).
To be frank, I haven't had the motivation to get any further than that, which was really my fault. I was too busy writing random roleplays that had nothing to do with the canon story and otherwise being lazy. I'm still going to be lazy, but I have more confidence in the story now and much better writing skills that I picked up from some admirable sources. So far, hiatus isn't the best thing for me (though in a way, it was to give me time to fart around and finally come to the conclusion that the story needed to be modified), but I'm not quite sure what I'll do for uploads. I'm thinking I'll ditch the schedule for now, and just upload based on bulk. 5-10 pages per update: how does that sound? =3 That way I can still work at my own pace and have little minestones to motivate me.
So, I guess I will see you in 5 pages, since ch. 0 is already written and ready to be drawn. <3
