You know what? I need to stop being such a baby.
I said the main reason that I suspended comments was that I wanted to prevent spoilers, spam, and tr0lls. I think the real reason is that I was too afraid to hear what people have to say about a project I care deeply about.
The fact is that as much as I try to do my best and write something, the fact is there will be people who think is royally sucks, is too slow, not enough boobs, not enough violence , and etc.
5th Capsule is not for everyone, it was never meant to be, and never will be.
This was the main reason why I want it to be free and to be away from publishers, so that I can do as I please and try to give you something different. Most of you now would say that the story is going in a normal fashion, but you don't know what I have planned for later. The fact that I don't have to worry about PG ratings, or PR ratings for that matter, and that i don't have a toy line hinging on it's success, means that I can really make anything happen.
As long as there is someone over your head with cash in hand, you are not in charge.
All I will say is give me 300 pages, and I will entertain you.The Future of 5C:
Well, it goes without saying that if it's free you're gonna have to wait. I thought about putting it on patreon, or doing a kickstarter, but shipping out stuff is hard, and I kind of shot myself in the foot doing it in BW which will not lend itself to printing the way I coloured / shaded it.
I do it in BW since I can do a page in a day. But for future pages, or chapters, I will do a few in colour as a bonus.
So here's what I am planning, what I will do is pay for a month of my time by selling commissions, original pages, and the like. I will have all sorts of options in price from baller status to entry level.
Kickstarter takes a slice, any site takes a slice. Why do I need them? I can raise money on my own. I mean I do commissions anyways, why not allocate the cash to 5C? I think it's a simple idea that might work.
One day down the line I will consider printing it, but for now it'll be a webcomic. Maybe I can print out super limited editions when I get to 100 pages and put tons of art in it.
If I can come up with 22 pages in a month, 3 times this year, we will have 100 pages.
These are just some thoughts, but as we reach the end, I don't want you guys to feel it's a dead end. But any future pages will be in batches of at least a scene of 3 pages to 10.
Thanks for your support! This is my gift to you all, it's free, so enjoy it! I will make some more colour stuff for it, but i think it will stay BW, it's charming in a way, and attainable and maintainable. If you haven't read my story 5th Capsule go here! :
I really do thank you guys and I hope I have been of some use to you.
Asalaamu Alaikum = Peace be upon you!
