I know that it sometimes seems like, no matter what you do, it never "takes off". But you got your funding, so that alone should tell you that people find value in what you do.
I know I do. I'm a little behind on your works, but the ones I have read (The Art of Monsters and Breaking the Lore) were amazing. (I'm seriously going to catch up, but the better part of a year away from comics and comicking put me behind in many ways...)
What you do brings people joy. Never forget that. And I don't mean hypothetical "people". I mean myself and others.
If you were to pack it all up, the world would be a not-as-bright place.
Spelledeg:@Prof Dude you got some really nice moods there.
Thanks, Spell! There's not a lot of action in the part we're working on now, but there is a lot of character moments, so mood is key in stopping the Attack of the Talking Heads (which is a very real threat where Autumn Bay is concerned)... :)
And now, so as to not derail the thread, more progress!
Well, I just deleted my Tumblr account (which I haven't even used in forever, but still).
In this particular case, I want to hurt the membership numbers they can present to their overlords at Yahoo. I want them to know that this is absolutely and completely the wrong way to go about this. There is no time in history that a blanket "cure" has ever gone the right way.
I get it. You're losing out on those precious Apple dollars. There are better ways to regain that (I'm not going to get into my personal disdain for Apple's policies here).
As it stands, it appears that, in acting with panic and haste, Tumblr is likely to immanentize their own personal eschaton. No one is going to have to worry about seeing naked people on a platform that doesn't exist.
Let's see, recurring themes (both visual and writing-related)...
- Villains utilizing concepts and abilities pulled from weird fiction (Lovecraft, Chambers, et al)
- Way too many characters
- High-concept blending of esoteric subjects (correlating eldritch monstrosities with the qliphoth, by way of a "for instance")
- Unfolding mysteries
- Noir undertones
- "Colorful" gangs
- Secret societies
- Characters that speak in odd ways
- A LOT of talking
- Abandoned buildings
- Lots of (possibly obscure in some cases) references
- Lots of neat effects
