Learning, ads are up, and other updates.

Wednesday, September 2 2015 -

Hello beautiful creatures! I hope you are enjoying the story so far. You're finally getting to learn a bit of Ted's backstory, and I've learned... well, so, so many things. Mostly that comics are an extremely time consuming medium, but worth every hour of effort. Through taking my own photo references to work from, and the advice and insight of friends, I've stumbled across an understanding of field of view. Thereafter, I taught myself how to use Sketchup to improve the perspective of my scenery. I've also changed my approach to the coloring style since the opening pages - some colored background lineart, a lot more gradients, less highlights, more relaxed lettering. Digitally I'm still most comfortable with loose painting styles, so everything about this endeavor has been extremely educational, and I'm really glad to be attempting it. If ever you have constructive critique to offer regarding pages as I post them, please don't hesitate to contact me and let me know!

Jon and I have made a few changes to the site. By popular request, clicking on any given page now navigates to the next page. Hopefully this will grant the comic a degree of mobile accessibly the fiddly little "next" button lacked. Additionally, we finally have ads up on the site, courtesy of Google Adsense! I think these are randomly generated based on both the site's content and your personal Google history, but if anything untoward appears, feel free to let us know and we'll see what can be done to filter content. If anything genuinely strikes you interest, feel free to check it out. :)

Thanks for reading, and keeping being rad! (Of course you're rad. If you're reading webcomics, you're clearly super rad. You generate so much rad that you're liable to give folks radiation poisoning.)

New site looks great! I love the ad spot TV viewing Ted. Webcomics are a butt ton of labor, which you think I'd remember from my last one. They are more worth it the more the community engages with you!

Given how quickly someone can consume a comic, it is hard to remember to take a step back and realize that each page is composed of many different pieces of are and when everything is said and done, it is many hours of work! Especially with a more complex style. I'm pretty happy with how the site turned out too, and hope we can keep making new improvements. >;] Thanks for commenting! Anya and I both hope to see many more comments here at Ted's home!
