Black Black Heart - page 3 by Aroihkin Black Black Heart - page 3 by Aroihkin
:icondonotplz::iconusemyartplz:

This comic is of (the first chunk of) Black Black Heart, which is part of my Silver and Scarlet series. (Links: AO3, LJ. Primarily NSFW and 18+.)

Photoderp CS6 + cintiq.

I'll be continuing this eventually, though it's only meant to go another two or three pages (I never planned to comic the whole story).

In the meanwhile, folks can read what happens via the original Black Black Heart fic, if you like. :)

(Edit 03/27: Haha, I just realized that my nagging sense of having forgotten something is from not having torn up T's clothes. Whoops!)

Eventually; a lot happened to my RL between then and now.

You can read what happens on the story I was comic'ing off of if you like: Black Black Heart.

Just to answer your question - Yes I am DEFINITELY interested! And I bet a lot of other people are who don't actually comment...in my case I'm so freakin' busy right now. And sometimes I love it but don't know what to say other than what's already been said. I feel kinda lame just say "I love it", or "what BSong said" (although both apply here.)

Soooo... please keep it up... I DO love it. :)

VERY BELATEDLY-- Yay! :D

Oh, I know there's probably been lurkers, but it's really discouraging when a page takes that many hours and you don't hear much. XD There's a reason we comment on WIP segments of fic on the kink meme; it's understood that it helps massively with keeping the writer going. I'm not sure why we treat sequential art differently. XD

An 'I love it' or 'what BSong said' does at least let me know you're digging it. :D

Hmm... I think, perhaps, it might catch people's attention more if there was colour. Not painstakingly colouring each panel, an overlay would do - make the page parchment-coloured, or maybe very pale blue. Experiment with photoshop blending modes to see what works, it doesn't take long once you get the hang of it.
Though speaking from experience here, comics don't get much attention until there's quite a few pages, just like a story doesn't until there's a few chapters. You're renowned in the writing fandoms, which is why the name Tannusen immediately catches people's eye, but on deviantart and in image form? Not so much. When you switch medium you're essentially building your rep up again from scratch.

Well, I'm not sitting here expecting to have half the readerbase for my dinky little comic that I do for my writing, by any means. XD But like I said above, knowing folks are paying attention is useful.

It's already accomplished what I wanted to do, which was to prove to myself that my writing can translate into visuals. Beyond that, I'm not going to hold it hostage vs comments/favs or some such nonsense, but interest is still a big deal.

Like I said to Bloodsong above, this is why we comment on k-meme WIPs we want to see continued, after all. :3 It's understood that just going "I like it! MOAR!" is a big deal for ongoing projects... when it's writing. Folks seem a bit more hesitant about it when it's art, even though it's exactly the same from my end.

If the process speeds up for me, I may start flatting this like I'm doing for the two-page "That Word" comic. But not until this part speeds up significantly. I've got a few new tricks up my sleeve for the next page which may pay off in terms of speed, so we'll see.

Of course. :D But you and Reaper were the only ones to show an active interest in page 2, it didn't even get much play on tumblr. XD

And when you put over a hundred hours of work into each page, you want more than two people caring about it. ^^ EVEN IF THOSE TWO ARE AWESOME FOR DOING SO. :boogie:

well... that's... mm.... yeah, okay.

but... but but... maybe it's trilogy syndrome? people go gaga over book one, but they never buy book 2 until book 3 is out, so sales/interest seems to nosedive and... something... encouraging so you keep doing it? : P

i mean, just think how awesome the WHOLE THING will be when it is done! then you can like post it on ao3. and... stuff!

I think there's a few things involved, from folks generally assuming that B&W art is fast and easy to folks just not having much to say. :3

But if there is more than a couple people interested in seeing it continue, it's good to know. Folks write comments on k-meme WIP stories they want to see continue because it's accepted that author-anons need the support. Comic pages are no different. It doesn't take in-depth commentary or insightful notes, just knowing people are interested is a huge help. :3

I got super mega discouraged when page 2 had so few people say anything, so I'm glad it's not boring everyone to tears. :D

You know at first I thought that was a guard and then I got a good look at his armor. I was like "Yay! Zev to the rescue! Now take the broody elf with you!" lol

I think it hints at who the crazy elf on the floor is, too. If it wasn't already obvious. XD
