ugh um... ok, well I'm really self conscious about it but you honestly shouldn't have to have played Kenshi in order to read Senhyakkin. Hopefully the gradual introduction of the world won't be too jarring...

my main antagonist in Senhyakkin has kind of a slow-burn leading up to them, but my hope is that with all the buildup my readers will have a big enough reaction to the big reveal. It will be quite a while yet, but... I am VERY proud of this antagonist, and they scare me a little too.

I mean there are tons of other "villains" in Senhyakkin, but the main one is the most exciting to think about.

Sometimes i just read webcomics as a means to escape reality. Writing my own comic frequently involves wrestling my time *away* from reality, so it's nice to just consume things for, yknow, fun.

that sensei guy has zero tact.

As for my comic, my last update was not one page but an entire chapter!
Because I only ever update this one with full chapters! Ahahaha! Aha... *sobs*

this thread is not meant for me...

The only comic I have right now is Senhyakkin, and while I do get stressed out over it I still love it for the simple fact that I'm able to project all my insecurities and experiences onto the characters. The events that occur in the story kinda parallel real life for me, and I feel really strongly about most of the motifs that come up.

I think I especially pour my heart and soul into Ghost and Leer's characters-- which makes it relieving when I see people like them the most.

Idk I'm just sick and tired of constantly being in so much pain it keeps me from working on anything.

My tendons are on fucking fire.

Oh, this one's easy. Deadpool. I read it back when I was fresh out of high school, taking walks to and from the food mart just up the street from my house. I rarely ever actually had the money to BUY the issues I read, but the store owners never had a problem with me sitting in the corner reading everything on the shelves.

Also, One-Punch Man. I got interested when I heard that a Japanese webcomic was actually getting a manga rendition drawn by Yusuke Murata himself. And I was one of the first saying how cool it would be if OPM got an anime. Several years later, and it's still one of the very few superhero things I'm actually into.

(Edited to clarify)

my biggest regret with all my previous comics is just not being able to finish them. I set the bar too high for myself and fell too far too many times, so to speak.

Now I have very few regrets with my current comic-- except for maybe choosing to do per-chapter batch updates. I mean, I honestly prefer that, both for updating and for reading, but I know all too well that people are less likely to know it exists that way.

lirvilas:Every day is a good day to upload. IMHO update as frequently as you sustainably can!


See, I have a problem with this-- not that I disagree, this is obviously more likely to garner attention than what I've been doing. But my main issue is that I've found it much less of a strain on my (already ruined) hands to just finish an entire chapter in 4 passes and post it as a big ol' batch upload. It gives me more time to rest and pace myself, which is something I most definitely need these days. Working on it per-page has proven to not work for me-- It slows me down, ends up inconsistent, and forces me to work every single day (even if I have a buffer, which I was never able to keep up when I was doing it as per-page updates.)

So, I'm actually happy with the approach I've been taking for my current series. It's gotten farther than any of my previous works ever have, and in a shorter amount of time, and I'm still going! Only issue is, that means my comic only shows up once every month or so. So, nobody here actually knows it exists, ahaha...

Now what I could(should?) have done was schedule the batch uploads to update gradually, a page or so per day. But I as a reader am the type that prefers to have an entire chapter published so I can read through it in one sitting, rather than read a page... wait... read another page... wait... read maybe 4 more pages... wait... and so on and so forth. So I went with the bulk. And now that I have a sizable enough amount of readers, though they may not be much, I don't think it would be fair to them to change from one formula to another...

So what DOES one do in that regard?
Not much, I guess.

In short-- Yeah. Don't do what I do. Update frequently, not seldom. If you're gonna complete a whole chapter in one go, at least set it to gradual, scheduled uploads, maybe one page for every day. 1PM EST is usually your best bet.

I think my biggest weakness is constantly worrying and putting myself down.

My strengths tho? ...Ummm.....

I dunno.

u-uhh.... JRPGs... specifically turn-based/ATB ones... they do still exist, and they're still perfectly valid and relevant. I won't listen to anyone that tries to tell me otherwise.

They calm me down when I've had an anxiety attack, they keep me engaged with their stories, and they aren't stressful to play. For the most part. For me, at least.

Anyway, JRPGs have made me who I am. And I'm not much, but... I'm happy with whatever aspects of me the genre has shaped.

My current project Senhyakkin is 6 chapters in and actually for once still going, which is amazing. I've got quite a few wholesome scenes already, but this one is by far my favorite.

So yeah that's my contribution. Weird bug man trying to console weird robo man.

- When people pronounce "aunt" like "ant"

- Public toilets left un-flushed

- People turning on their right-turn blinker when they were already in the right-turn-only lane to begin with

- that thing lap-cats do where they sit down on your full bladder in the morning

I like keeping a buffer of two entire chapters, personally.
...Tho I update entire chapters every two months, so I'm probably not a good example at all.

I used to never have buffers and do like-- a page a week, but I have learned from my mistakes.
