Hey guys, it's been a long ride and I've spent a great deal of time with this one!  If you have the means, are able to support me and most importantly, if you enjoy what you see then please consider sharing the link around to people who might be interested.

With that being said, you can grab a copy of the comic here:

I plan to continue making comics in the future and becoming more skilled along the way; TI2 was a great lesson to me and many challenges were overcome, and many more were documented.  Working solo is an inherent challenge by itself, but mixed together with flu season, arm pain, and long hours of isolation only adds to that; art-wise, my ability to layout the scenes has definitely been a mixed bag of successes and failures, particularly when making the decision to either include perspective, or to focus on action rather than what is technically proper.

Other things I look for are whether or not panels are too similar; several revisions were made just on that qualifier alone, and most weren't any better than the first!  Identifying what is 'off' either ink-wise, color-wise, or perhaps something more subtle (consistency of the /amount/ of details, for example) requires a switching of mindset from create mode into analyze mode, one that is quite painful to do when  you realize that things aren't what they're supposed to be!  I'm not professional trained, nor am I the best artist out there, but this is a process that I'm most definitely becoming better at.

If you want to hear more comic-processing yays and woes, let me know in the comments and I'll ramble on the topic full-on.

I truly hope you are vocal and supportive with critiques and with what you feel might most improve the next one :>

This was definitely the biggest challenge thus far and I look forward to the next!
