Hey guys. I’m actually proud to get this up on time. I actually wrote on my instagram that the post would probably not be up until later in the day. But thanks to the magical healing powers of “5 hour energy (took half, which you just have to assume gives you 2.5 hours of energy)” I was able to let the endorphin rush of getting this done pull me through. I’ve been finding new processes through the sheer fact that I’m doing the comic so regularly and it’s helping me get a bit of speed. I guess it’s true, the more you work on something the better you get.
I’ve been in a good head space about the comic lately too. I openly tell people that I didn’t make it for money, but because I wanted to make the story that I wanted to make and get it out there. It’s hard sometimes not to look at other more popular properties and wonder why yours doesn’t get the same attention. Then you ask yourself should you do what everyone else is doing, artistically, story wise, the whole 9. But then I remind myself why I’m doing this and remember the only person I’m in competition with is myself. I just have to make the best story that I can and do my best to top myself every post.
Like I said, comics in general don’t make much money if that Marvel or DC logo isn’t attached (I personally like Image…hey I’m an indie fan at heart. Check out Deadly Class btw. My favorite comic out hands down), so it keeps me focusing on the passion of getting it out and attracted more people like yourselves that just want to follow along with Cupid’s adventures ( I know he hasn’t been seen but hey…setup). Once we have caught our stride the plan always has been and will be to make the pilot animation! I just want to see if people even care before doing all of that. Shit’s costly lol.
I’m tired, and kinda rambling. But this was a fun section. Che and Angel’s relationship is just interesting to me. Like, what kind of advice is this? No wonder Angel is messed up. But, I think Che is just getting started. Tune back in next week to see this train wreck advice continue.
Speaking of next week, remember that the comic will be updated every Wednesday from now on.
I know that you guys will miss the dual updates, but for now it is the best choice to make sure the posts don’t get too short while I take that art class I was talking about a few posts ago. I’ll keep everyone updated on any new changes.
But let me catch a couple z’s. Hope you guys had a good 420 and are still floating around somewhere.
PS: Che got them Johnny Bravos.
