Alright, Because all you have to do is ask (apparently) and I will comply I have made the Introduction page!
Yes! That thing I skipped initially because I wanted to just start the story already. I could have went on for pages creating varying degrees of iconic and flowery prose to signify the ever dwindling life that the once bountiful land of Equestria used to have before being bombed into an oblivion, but I kept it simple and final. One page. For when you gaze upon the flames of your own demise you gaze into....yourself!
Or probably just agonizing and painful hellfire, which ever comes first.
Probably the hellfire...
So! Chapter two will be a few weeks because I really enjoyed giving you dudes and dudettes a small pile all at once as opposed to a couple pages every week or so. Also I'm super pysched about these next handful of pages because I think I'm finally getting it. I'm taking precautions to not jinx myself, (knock on wood) but something clicked and I think I leveled up when I finished chapter one.
Designs and layouts, coloring and inking, was almost inspired. I drew for 16 hours straight until I forced myself to bed at 7:00 this morning. I was a spirit possessed! I'm not even trying to be clever because LittlePip just leveled up at the end of Chapter one as well, that was actually an unintentional coincidence that I made and now only realize that as I type. Already I have 5 fully inked pages and a full color spread with additional color content. I think you guys are really gonna like it.
Fallout website? Yes, that is coming and again I must apologize for I had said on several occasions and fully intended to have a functional and separate website for the discernible graphic novel reader this week, as it was my vacation. Unfortunately I underestimated the amount of work I'd have to put in to make an attractive and functional website, and I didn't want to suck up all this free time I had intended to draw messing with the more technical and mind-numbingly brain melting (I'm not smart) aspects of making a website so I am leaving that to a scheduled weekend for a later date, but know that this only means more pages will come out that much sooner on this our founding site DA.
Fear not though my young compatriots! where it is going though I do know. A comic hosting site "smackjeeves" has some very nice features for straight up reading action, unfortunately the file sizes they allow in the free account are quite pitiable and I'm forced to purchase their "donor" status.
Which at 20 bucks isn't a terrible deal for a fully functional comic website, 60 if I want their top membership with my very own domain name. falloutequestria.com, imagine that!or maybe the GraphicNovelProject.com. Hmmm. something to chew on...
And finally please don't think I'm so self-deprecating that I honestly believe I'm dumb. When I say I'm dumb, what I really mean is ignorant, because I don't know a whole BUNCH of things and a lot of it has to do with what I'm actively doing right now. Making websites, HTML, CSS all that jazz. Also I might be just a bit dumb.
Then again my brother has a Masters in Biology from fancy schools and HE'S one of the dumbest kids I know! Also as an aging artist raised as a Jew in New England I think it's physically impossible for me not to be sarcastic and self-deprecating. I'm pretty sure I'd quickly get sick and die if I didn't have anything to complain about.
So with that I bring you all another little tidbit. A small piece of me that you can all carry in your pocket and take out when your bored or if a table is a little wobbly and you need something to just wedge under there. We've all gotten a little bit better on this journey. A little stronger. A little braver. A little bolder. And the more we traverse the more we'll get a little bit more. So I say.
Carry on and come with me! there's still so much more!
Let's all level up together.
