Thanks For The Feedback
I want to thank you all for the feedback. There was far more support than criticism, which I was not expecting, but was a pleasant surprise. I’m glad to know that so many of you actually like the bizarre concepts I’ve introduced in creating a BDSM fantasy setting (even if it hasn’t been presented very well).
The biggest complaint I heard was one I’ve recognized time and time again in my work. Pacing. I have a habit of creating dialogue that goes on and on and on, while I try to cover every single detail. In fact, I addressed that myself back during early autumn and promised to correct the issue. But it seems that I haven’t. And so I have to analyze the way I produce scripts and find a solution to this. I believe I understand what must be done in terms of pacing and keeping the comic moving fluidly, and I hope you will all see positive results in the coming weeks. Don’t worry long-time readers. I’m not dropping the plot in any way. The destination remains the same, the ride simply needs to be more enjoyable. Here’s to hoping it works out.
And now to the Owned comics I’ve been posting this week.
Those strips in particular are actually about three years old now. They originally ran in several of my old art accounts, around the same time I was just beginning to think of giving a BDSM comic another shot (after my failure with Crimson Latex).
At this point I can’t recall if Owned of C6 entered my brain first, but they both had the same general ideas. Hapless slave getting into a situation they didn’t quite understand. C6 wound up winning out in the end, likely because I still had a connection to the vaguely created cast I never fleshed out in Crimson Latex.
Owned is now serving as my side-story stand in. When I get in a jam and need something to fill in for me, but can’t get a guest strip in time, expect to see more of this story. And for those wondering, yes, these are the two characters who appeared in Strip 33.
Once again everyone, thanks very much for sticking with me through the last two years. I hope the coming year sees the comic really go somewhere and that you’re all still interested enough to read it.
