Welcome to my Webcomic Monkey Pot! I have been working on this comic for over nine years now. A lot of heart and soul and tears and blood and crap when into the making of this. It's not over yet. I understand almost 500 pages is a lot to read. But I really hope you consider taking some time to read MP! It's an amazing tale with some twists and turns. The art has improved drastically since the beginning. This is also a traditionally drawn comic made with color pencils! In the beginning I used an electric type writer for my text. Crazy old school, right? Anyways, I hope you find my webcomic enjoyable.
OKay everyone! The new chapter begins a shit ton of changes and I HOPE everyone is excited!!! I am! This comic won't update as frequently as I have the last two months. We are moving to a MONDAY AND WEDNESDAY update system.
Firstly there's going to be quite a bit of coloring techniques that I hope set moods better. I know some of the last pages looked a little unfinished (Hos underwater for one) but I assure you, those instances were intentional. It was meant to give you a feeling of disconnect from the realm and the Pool.
Secondly, I am trying to use a different font, which is my own handwriting only converted for a computer usage. A friend has also generously allowed me to use hers because its sexy and man, just beautiful.
Third, I've gone back to inking in my speech bubbles and leaving my panel lines as original. I will still try to figure out how to clean the gutter without it looking so bleh. I'm still trying to figure out the best way to make it look natural without taking away too much quality in the traditional art.
With that, this chapter shouldn't be a long one! I have a few questions I want to ask y'all, cause I like having opinions.
Should I give you Chapter Summary at the end of each chapter in my Author's comments?
I'm thinking about putting up a character profiles tab. I'm not sure how to work it up on Smackjeeves. Would y'all like to see profiles?
Let me know in the comments below! Please share Monkey Pot with your friends and beloveds. <3 See ya on MONDAY!!!
I really like the combination of blue and orange here and the subtle variations! :) (Sorry it's not a more meaningful comment, I keep meaning to find time for that since our conversation about colouring over at the forums.)
Those scars though. NOT A GOOD THING TO DO. D:
Oh, and character profiles are a good thing! You create a custom page for it in comic settings (coding the table with characters might be tricky, struggling with it myself, someone on the forums might help). Dunno about chapter summaries, in my experience if someone doesn't want to read something, they won't read it no matter how much time it takes, if they want to read it they won't mind earlier chapters with older art.
@Oly-RRR: Thank you! I've gotten pretty good with my contrasting colors. Its great to know its paying off. XD
It's not a healthy thing to do. This character had a very horrible life and struggled a lot. And unfortunately she didn't have a support structure either. BUt the scars we bear are what make us stronger.
