Chapter 3 Progress Report
So it's been a month since the last update. I guess we all should have expected this when I mentioned a hiatus. On the bright side, stepping back and doing something else for a while has cleared my mind a bit and given me a chance to reflect. I'm writing this as I take a quick break from writing the Chapter 3 script (which had to be almost completely re-written, by the way, due to carelessness on my part) and I'm happy to report that it's coming along nicely. I should have it done in another day or so and then there's only a couple days of reflection and editing between me and thumbnailing. Since I'm switching from traditional pencils to 100% digital pages from now on (unless this proves to be a stupid idea :P) I can't say exactly how long it will be but I think I can confidently say it will be worth the wait.
A bit of trivia: This script was originally one of the shortest in the comic and I added to it to beef it out a bit, but now the bit of beefing I did has moved over to the next chapter because this one... actually looks pretty good. Maybe it's just because I'm starting to figure out how to write and draw a comic properly, but I think Chapter 3 will be a bit longer than "Whisper Man" or "Enemies." That's an encouraging thing for me. =)
I'm also reconsidering the Interlude pages. One one hand they're necessary and a good idea... on the other they're just superfluous. It's a tough call.
Thanks so much for your patience, everyone: we'll be back in business before you know it!
(And on a side note, I've been delivered an ultimatum by a certain fangirl... Amaravati must now be finished within three years or I'll be trampled by horses. I wonder how I'd work on pages after I've been crushed?)
