The thing about momentum is that things in motion tend to stay in motion, and when your motion is zero, that’s how it tends to say.
I’m still working on Twisted Us, and it should be ready by launch date. I mean, worst comes to worst, I am still happy with how Chapter 1 looks, which is a few months worth of updates, so I have until this fall to get all my planning done, but I’d rather not have to plan while trying to draw the comic. I mean, it’s hard enough as it is.
The tone of the comic has really changed a lot since I started it. It started out a little more silly and now it’s getting very serious. Then again, I have always intended to end it seriously, so I guess it’s alright. I still have Hale, who’s a very silly character and I really can’t wait for you to meet him. Of course, I am really going to work on making sure the comic is the way I want it to be.
I hope to submit it to Hive Works so I really want it to be its best. I mean, if I want it accepted to Hive works, then it will have to stand beside Go Get A Roomie, Girl Genius, Misfile, and a whole lot of amazing comics that have amazing art and amazing stories and amazing characters. I don’t think I’ll be able to fully accomplish the first one by June, so I’m hoping to knock it out of the park with the rest of it. All I’m hoping for with my art is that I can get it looking consistent enough from panel to panel that I can pass off my mistakes as style rather than lack of skill. Eventually it really will be style, but until then I should probably just fake it until I make it.
Now, you may be asking yourself, why am I trying to aim for the giants in webcomics when I’m not even sure of my own skill, well, I suppose I’m just impatient and I want to prove I can do it sooner rather than later. Is this a good idea, no, probably not, but it’s my idea.
