I think I will go back to tweaking some of those coloured pages later, I did them without much preparation or warmups and I was really confused between styles from the previous few contract pieces I did ):
Carciphona is a high fantasy webcomic/manga written, illustrated and published by me ^^ Set in an era where magic is forbidden, the story follows a young sorceress who, despite possessing more power than most could even dream of, could not grasp the simple peaceful life she longed for. But all this will change, whether she is ready for it or not. Start reading from the beginning.
Ah, I see it now... There's even a pendant? How awesome are you?? That's such a good idea. I don't know what I'll buy yet, but as soon as I have enough saved up (I've spent this month's budget already) I'll be sure to order something from you.
Of course! I already enjoy supporting artists, and today I just read =Deus-Nocte's most recent journal about the "cost of free" and the importance of respecting artists' hard work (which, by the way, is a really good read and makes some very valid points [link]) and it sort of made me want to start buying
But making money is really difficult, especially since it's so easy to get things without paying for them. It's becoming a bit of a problem here in the States. People don't often realize that everything can't always be free. I'm lucky to have a job that pays pretty well, so it's important to me to help others out whenever I can—and right now, I definitely can!
Yes, another update! I was just thinking about you today, Shilin! I know I'm probably late, but I was wondering how I may buy your comics. I like to support my artists. I'll go check out the website to see if I can buy them... I know people have ordered Carciphona before!
I am always satisfied and never satisfied at the same time regarding this work. It is a privilege to be able to tell my own story and have people be interested enough to buy my books and maintain a living, and I'm thankful. But that said I can always do a better job to expand my readership, and I will always aim to do so, however slowly, over time ^^
