Bad news sponsored by Banjo - the only true way to sound the death knell of a comic!
Again Whitefeather has no artist. Keris has been unable to find enough in the comic to motivate him, which is understandable. As well as my reduced free time, my lack of artistic motivation was what caused me to look for another artist in the first place. I'd like to thank Keris for trying in the first place, and for the strip he put together. If he ends up doing a webcomic of his own I for one would be very interested in reading it!
So where does this leave this little comic? To be honest I think this is the end. Too many artistic changes and long waits for updates is not good for a webcomic, and I feel now is probably the time to admit defeat and put this to bed. I don't want to mess any of you around anymore with waiting weeks for updates, and to be honest the joy has gone out of making this comic, and I don't want to continue something that I no longer enjoy doing. So, that's the end of this story, at least as a webcomic. I liked Jenna and Beech's characters, but I never really got a feel for the other two, and I think that hurt the comic a bit. There are other reasons, but I'm not going to bore you all by going into them!
I'd like to say sorry to everyone who's dissappointed by this and who wanted to know how things turned out. I know this was never the most popular webcomic on here, but there are enough of you reading to make me feel bad about putting a stop to it. So I am sorry that I couldn't live up to doing the story in my head full justice.
Maybe I'll do another webcomic on here at some point, something less taxing artistically and less time consuming....we'll have to see. I hope you read it if I ever do. Thank you for reading what I did manage to churn out, and for all the positive comments. Maybe I'll see you in Arts and Crafts again soon.
If there was another artist it could still continue, I would do it myself If I were not already an artist for two other webcomics, both with links in my sig.
To be honest I doubt I would continue it anyway. This thing has been going since last July, and there are a grand total of 22 strips. That is not a good total for a continuing webcomic. Too many gaps, too many changes, it's just best to leave it here I think.
I am trying to come up with an idea for a webcomic that I can do the art for in an hour per strip. That's the only way I'm going to get anything going again in terms of webcomics. If I get something you lovely people will be the first to know!
Yeah, its true unfortuantely, I think I choose too big a story for my first attempt at a webcomic. It's something that other media would probably suit better.
Thanks for the encouragement, and I hope you can revive Ring V sometime too!
On a positive note, I seem to have stumbled across and art style that I can create a strip with in about an hour. So much so that I've thrown together 3 strips already. It's much MUCH simpler than what I have been doing, but I actually think it adds a bit of cuteness to it. It's not OotS style, but it's close enough to be related. I also have a story, fairly basic right now, but I'm hoping it will develop itself as I draw more. If things carry on going as well as they have been in the last few days I may be ready to throw some stuff onto the boards in a few weeks time, see what you guys think. Hope at least some of you will read it
