Experiment Threeeeee! (and this time click goes the key?)

Experiment Threeeeee! (and this time click goes the key?) published on No Comments on Experiment Threeeeee! (and this time click goes the key?)

Assessing updates I need to make to this site, I discovered the previous post about scrapping the entire site and starting over as I tried to figure out wtf I was doing. And here I am, scrapping the entire site and starting over as I try to figure out wtf I am doing AGAIN! Whee!

In a complete turn-around from the last time, this time:

+ Switch to traditional media! I really did try to master digital…but, I’m just a better traditional artist. I can get better expression/expressiveness and control. More exciting marks. I’m using a mix of traditional and digital now, with the majority of the art created in pencil, pen-and-ink, and watercolor. Then photographing, importing to digital, and doing additional work, effects, and layout on the computer.

+ Vertical format. 1. Better for browsers. 2. Simplifies some things graphically for my nOOb-ness. 3. Can post full chapters instead of page-by-page, which means less posting, but also less need for people to have to remember to come back week after week.

+ Go SLOOOOOOOWWWWW. I have been reassured that, really, it’s fine to start with some world-building exposition and a slow, really obvious introduction to characters and motives. I don’t have to jump into action instantly. So, this time, there’s a world-history intro. And then I’m bringing back the original first episode before Kira gets her crew, only easing into it with additional set-up stuff.

Also, this time, some people will already know the world and be into it, so there’s that.

Third time a charm?
