Comments Enabled for 5C

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 24, 2014, 9:04 AM
Comments Enabled:

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!

(Consumer culture in the 80" 90'alot slower than 2000 + ) m Technology too... yeah Lol.. how you draw effect the end result . I had this idea of doing huge symbolic collages for the Orixas African spirits with my character entangled with in it  .Technology wise it of been impossible to print except on a massive canvas . And even harder to fit into a Browser lol technology put a damper on  being too creativity . I eventually switch to scrolls which can fit into a browser .Get even worse now that everyone in there momma is on phones , had to learn new HTML5 technology to make sure website and comic now adapt to mobile devices . Which really can put a damper on story telling lol probably won't cater too much to that , Get to small and it ruins the art. When I making my comic I did it because I wanted to do it and had passion for ( still making it )But lol.. most likely won't be a huge seller ,but one of the beauty internet you will find dedicated audience that like your work  however big or small . I wanted to attractive pinup like character mixed with Mythology of specific character from African mythology , and matching myths  with a lot of personality and character , there probably audience for that ,but not as big of an audience as it might be for "Random Boob /Skinny light skin character generic European-Japanese RPG character +Maid outfit" lol..

(Posted this in the wrong spot lol replied to another comment) hm... well like can understand the sentiment of not wanting to enable comment story telling is subjective . And people liking different kind of entertainment can easily fall into fanatical tribalism with the Critic acting as Priest urging people onto battle. Everyone got a different idea of what artistic integrity means , beyond , Don't outright bootleg the artwork. Some thing I can say there is something objective underneath it all..but it won't make the art critic happy or the literature critic happy .. though not what most people think lol.. the type of story that become popular are adapted to the social environment . Story in the past moved slower  ,because the world moved slower .  because you didn't have the internet twitter and bombarded by information in a high tech world , Work stayed at "Work" didn't follow you everywhere you went  (Well hell I've been internet damn near since the 90s it now moves much faster now than it did back in the days of AOL and 56k  modem, Now people don't even have the time to sit down and visit website gotta have it twitted lol.. )  . So story now are shorter and more disposable . Also there More media . Got 50 things I can play right now to occupy my attention span for hours Video games Netflix , etc.. I Remember seeing this thing on Chinese Novels (Pre-Industrial culture ) had a hundred different characters with detailed back-stories. That would never happen today lol.. in any industrial  culture ,not enough time and too much work/overwork/overtime  to pay attention to it .

Man, thank you for the comic, i really love this Love 
I like normal life comics, it feels relaxed but also somewhat intense when there's a problem 
It's fun to know other people's story especially when there's a lot of cars in it :la:

I was confused about the closed comments at first, but I can understand why you did it. In the end, it's up to an artist as to whether they want critique or not and it isn't a crime to not want people to defame your "baby". I don't mind either way, in all honesty.

 

But now that I can comment on stuff, I'd love to know if all the characters in the comic are based on actual people from your life growing up. That is, assuming that Gradius is a projection of you and, if not, just ignore me. XD

Thanks man!, Gradius is more of a projection of me when I was young and not how I am now.

Yeah, that's what I meant. I keep looking at this as a sort of "Omar's Secret Origins" comic, but obviously played up to be more entertaining.

This is toned down hugely. If I told my life story no one would believe me. I only am giving snippets and trying to stitch it together to vent it out and contribute something beneficial to young folks.
