1. Comic reboot

    Hey guys, I’m still alive! In recent weeks I’ve gone back to College to study Computer Science and, sadly, haven’t properly integrated Legacy of Light into my daily schedule. But, between studying, working out, and maintaining a social life, I do have just enough free time to crank this sucker out so long as I manage my time right.

    That being said, I’m restarting the comic for a few reasons. First of all, I’m going to change up the art style to be considerably easier to produce. In a nutshell, I’m switching to a more manga-inspired black and white style with tones, rather than having an MS Paint-quality full color monster. I think this will also make the final product look less lazy, as I’ve always found myself half-assing the coloring more than anything else.

    In addition, The first few chapters have had some pacing issues and my revised script is considerably stronger than the original. It helps tremendously to have an organized system for making these things, and having written my own database and a PHP page to do the heavy-lifting for me is definitely a saving grace.

    Lastly, I’m going to switch to a “chapter-a-week” schedule rather than sporadically updating whenever I finish a few pages. I’ve gotten some feedback on this and I think it’ll definitely be better to have you read large chunks at once rather than having to remember what happened every time I post.

    I have a website design pretty much ready to go. Implementation is not a huge priority, but with whatever time I have to do so I’ll be putting that together. Until I get out of the prologue here, I think the Tumblr page will work fine.

    Anyway, thank you all for your patience and for liking my story enough to follow! I promise I’ll be getting content out soon!

  3. Hello followers!

    Holidays have been a bit nuts. I don’t know if you’ve ever worked in a grocery store during the holidays, but I assure you it’s nuts. Coupled with the usual Christmas fare, I haven’t had much opportunity to work on Legacy over the past couple of weeks.

    This next semester, however, I will be returning to college, and as I’m not working a job during the term, I’m going to put in every effort to keep this thing updating on a regular basis so long as it doesn’t interfere with my coursework. I would imagine I’d definitely have the time to do so, but until I get into the heat of it and have some idea of how heavy the courseload is gonna be, it’s really impossible to say.

    Anyway, I hope everybody’s been enjoying their holiday season! Update’s comin’ later tonight and will hopefully give me the creative momentum I so desperately need right now.

  10. Current plans for Legacy of Light

    Hello friends! For those who are interested, I’ve come up with a basic plan of action for the upcoming few months regarding the comic and the website.

    Right now, I’m going to finish the next two or three chapters as normal. There’s a specific point in the story I want to hit, and when I do, I’m going to get to work developing the website. This could take anywhere from a week to a month depending on how much time I get to work on it. Working 40 hours a week doesn’t make this any easier!

    In any case, once I have a functional website available, this Tumblr will be my way of communicating with the audience and sharing extra goodies or designs and whatnot. Basically whatever I feel like sharing that isn’t actually a part of the story. At that point I may also be more aggressive in trying to gather something of a readership, but at the moment I’m just trying to develop a respectable chunk of content. On that note, if you like the story, you’d REALLY be helping me out by sharing it with your friends, reblogging my posts, etc. Every view counts!

    Anyway, Chapter 3 oughta be popping up soonish. Thank you for reading and I will continue striving to make my silly adventure story worth your precious time!
