Still Technically Tuesday my time - Well just eeking this in. I had my brother's wedding last week so I got pretty gummed up on drawing. Huzzah, this is the last page in this scene. Next time, I get to draw a different place.

- I'll be honest, the story is having somewhat of a bumpy start. But now it seems to have stabilized a bit, which is good, since it's starting to interest me.

The thing about getting comments is that your story has to inspire a discussion. So far, nothing much is happening, but the fact that you're getting fans means people are interested. For comments to happen, relevant things have to happen.

So until something really discussion worthy happens, I wouldn't worry about not getting a lot of comments. Just keep making your story, and stay dedicated to it (advertise, comment on other people's stuff to put yourself out there, keep a steady schedule, etc.) and you'll find yourself a fanbase in no time. Right now readers are still in the "not sure if I wanna keep reading or not" zone, which is totally fine. Every comic that's just starting off goes through that zone.

On a side note, your art is very nice and clean to look at. If it takes too long to finish pages, try developing speed drawing techniques. They'll help you out a bunch, especially if you're on a schedule.

Maybe it's just me - Oh...I got a bit... confused...Anae is a word from my own project (a WIP not as of yet released), it means medicine woman (more literally person whose vocation is to be a wise woman)...>_>

I don't know what your Anae means, though I'm assuming it's short for Anaerion. Figured you'd find the coincidence of interest though.

Thanks for the feedback! - @Azumitaiko:

Ah thanks for the feedback, It's good to get some constructive insight into things. There were definitely parts of the beginning I found weak (like page 5... ugh I think an academic defence is kind of dry for a comic...)

In the last comic I did I felt I progressed too quickly. I thought some of the pacing was a little better in this one, but also that it was too slow, or maybe too focused on world terminologies rather than more readily relatable events. At least it's encouraging that it seems to be stabilizing. I'll keep working to that!

Thanks for the nice comment on my art too. I have a lot to learn about speed drawing techniques, and well, letting go with wanting obsess about small parts for days. Ideally, I'd like to get to once a week and still have it colored.

Thanks for the encouragements, and again the feedback of how it presents so far, it's much appreciated!

It's a tale of two kinds of Anaes - @selfinversion:
Heh, that could cause an embarrassing misunderstanding for him if he found himself in your story world then... but that is funny, how some words sound right for us and then they mean such different things elsewhere. Yep, your instinct was right, "Anae" is the short/pet name of Anaerion.
