Heh...

Hey, remember me? Remember when I said that I would actually update this comic? Well... I unfortunately lied... I horribly terribly lied.

If you hadn't checked out my deviantart page you all probably didn't know of my major lack of art of any kind. Seriously, I haven't been really able to draw anything for basically ever since I stopped updating the comic. It's been a kind of dark mid summer of soul searching till I finally found my light at the end of the tunnel at the end of July.

After lots of prayer and soul seeking, I'm actually moving out of the state in less than two weeks. I'll be going to school for a year, do some more praying, and of course getting a job that I want to do.

I think the bad thing why I stopped updating back then is because story telling has always been my speciality. I seriously have the entire story of Pokemon R in my head and in scattered notes and know how everything is going to go, but I couldn't get myself to draw it. Insecurity may have been a problem, but just no faith in myself was also a big reason too. I don't know much about how to make a graphic novel look good. But I do know how to make a great story board and written work. These were my strengths in college and what I hope to do in whatever job I take in the future.

The good news is that the next page has been written out and hopefully I'll have some time once I leave my current job this week to finish this page. However, updates after that will be unknown. Since moving and living (basically) on my own for the first time (long story do not ask) I will be dedicating most of my time to schooling and work. But I do plan to come back! I told myself I wanted to finish this comic, even if I have to change up the art format I will.

Actually, I'll ask you who still stuck around. I can always write a story vs drawing if you're just interested in what happens next. I can write much quicker than drawing so this could be an option (it takes around 6-8 hours to create a single page vs maybe an hour or two to write a good chapter). Personally I don't desire to do this, but I don't mind. Otherwise, would you rather see a comic page of Pokmon R or a video of a bunch of story boards instead. A video would mean the art is a bit more sloppy, but will get done quicker and may be an opportunity to have voice acting for characters if I decide to do that direction.

For now I'll try to finish the one page and finally prep to move. I'm sorry again for the long delay, I hope to get back to it soon but with everything that's going on, it may be a little bit.

I'm up for any of the options you offer. But if you do the video I call voicing Kiosia!

A video wouldn't be bad, but I'm gonna stay with this comic either way it goes. I think they both would work equally well, so it's really up to you to decide.

Hm, that's tough a tough choice, but if you want a decisive opinion, I would love to see the comic continue, and even if pages take you a while most people here understand that real life comes before comics and will be able to appreciate whatever work you put out.
Good luck with school and life, and I hope things work out for you. uvu
