As the title says, great if not wonderful news!
I'm like 98% done with the website for "Soul's Journey". Basically there's one cast picture missing and I'll have to decide which social media I'll make an "following" account for the comic, but that's pretty much it!
Oh and since I didn't get too much feedback on the last journal, I'll repost this here:
Soul's Journey aka "the comic"
This project has long been a mystery to most of you. Those who started watching me during the last two years probably never got in touch with this project. Time to give you some history lessons!
Back in 2009, when I was a whiny teen instead of a whiny adult, I first started working on this project, but I lacked skill, motivation and a good consistent story to go with. So it was paused and eventually quit. But the idea never really left me. So I started reworking it and it hopefully gained substance in the areas it lacked something and others. I'm currently preparing the first chapter, so I can start publishing it on 01/01/2015 and keep up an updating schedule of one page a week.
Another thing is that I'm not sure if I'll submit the whole comic to dA. Reading comics here is not exactly a joy since the site is lacking some sort of comic tool. I know there's the motion book option, but let's be honest how many people are using that to read comics?
I've been preparing a website (hosted by Smack Jeeves because I'm no webdesign talent), which only needs a few touch ups and can then be considered as finished. I'll definitely post the whole comic there for free! This is a project I pursue as a hobby, not to make money of it.
The options I considered for dA:
- posting the pages without word balloons and give a link to the website
- posting panel previews with a link to the website
- posting the first 8 or so pages on dA and then only continue on the website
Any input on those? Which would you prefer or do you have other ideas? Seriously I'm open to suggestions.
