So ends Conflicts of Interest!
You guys, this is great news. This means that Loud Era is all caught up with the end of my buffer and you will now start to see comics that weren't drawn a minimum of six months ago. Hopefully you will see a noticeable improvement in art and writing quality, as we are coming up to some plot points that have been running rampant around my head for literally years.
To anyone reading this comic, thank you so much for your time. I hope I've made it worth it and I hope you still choose to come back tomorrow and continue reading in the future. Cooltime!
Friendships are so weird - unlike family you actually get to pick the people to be near now but... sometimes it doesn't seem like a very conscious choice either. XD But maybe it's one of things that are so good about it all.
Really enjoying your comics (and our conversations) so far!
@Oly-RRR: Same same!! I'm so happy to read your comments! They made my day yesterday and are now making my morning :P
Yeah, the science of friendships hasn't quite been pinned down, I think.
@mitchellbravo: Aw, I'm the same way! I know I'm really happy to get your comments on my comics so I thought - man, I gotta comment more myself! And it's fun, discussing small details and aspects of comic work and such. :D
@Oly-RRR: Aww I'm glad to hear that! It's rare that I find a comic I can really get into enough to want to leave multiple comments or comment on specific pieces of the work, so I'm very glad to have yours in my favorites!
I'm kind of curious about these short pages. I get it's the end of a chapter, but is there a deeper meaning behind it?
@Squirreltastic-Blue: Oh, with them being short? No, no reason, other than me being worse at pacing back then :P
Most of the pages you've seen leading up to now were actually two separate pages (half pages) each, and then in like 2012 I went on a maniacal spree of combining many of them so that 1. things flowed better 2. the pages were each more significant and 3. readers could get through the comic with less clicks. This one, being at the end of the chapter, didn't have anything I could attach it to so it just stayed a brief page.
If you go back a page, you can see a really good example of a page that was once two pages. I was trying to conserve paper by making two comics on each @_@ and stretch out storylines so that I could have more updates.
This trend continues until probably sometime into the prom chapter, when I finally learned how to just structure my pages/scenes better.
