Page 8 – I Can’t!
Another week goes by, and here we are again. Only this time, I’m finally back to color.
This page isn’t as sophisticated as others I’ve been attempting, due largely to time constraints this week. With some refinement I could bring it up to standards I guess but for now, I am feeling accomplished that I’ve simply managed to get back to full color. And the scene is evocative and emotional, anyhow, even if it is a little simplistic. I dunno. Maybe I’m just too tired to be able to make a rational assessment of it.
This past week put an enormous strain on me. For reasons of tact and good judgement I can’t go into specifics, but it was just a really major outlay of emotional as well as physical energy at a time when I didn’t have much to spare. So the comic suffered a little. But we at least got a whole page in color. Which I’ve now repeated for the third time. God, I need to go to bed.
And so I will. There’s a readership lull at the moment, I know, because I haven’t had the resources to any advertising, but the hard core readers continue to return and I want to let you all know how much I appreciate it. I knew going in that 6-Commando would not in any way what people expect to see in an online comic and that my ins and outs were bound to have a major impact on how the thing got produced, and when. And so to have readers who are sophisticated and patient follow along as I go, well, it adds a little bit of stability to a very unstable endeavor, and so thanks.
And now, I sleep. And until next week, be well, everyone!
