Okay. So it should be fairly obvious to anyone who frequents this page and the site that I haven’t updated the site with a new comic for the past week, and there’s a reason for that. However, it also happens to be a complicated reason, so lemme just narrow it down to 2 main points.
- Quantity over quality: I gave myself an update schedule thinking that it would force me to stay motivated to create comics instead of just saying ‘i’ll do it tomorrow’ and then procrastinating ad infinitum, and it worked. However, the quality of the comic (in my personal opinion) is not as good as it used to be, and that may be because I gave myself a rigid schedule instead of simply drawing a comic that I find funny whenever I think of a funny idea. I’ve been posting comics that I haven’t been as proud of finishing as the ones before because I put myself under the impression that I need to hold myself to this standard of constant output, and this simply is not true. I want to be pleased with what I’ve made, and if I’m not, then changes need to be made.
- Specific premises: This one’s pretty simple. The comic’s premises currently revolve around my friends and I. However, I also want to work on other comic ideas I have, and with the point above concerning quantity over quality, I can’t really do that. These other ideas range from simple fancomics to original one-shots to complicated adventure epics, the last of which I’m particularly interested in and want to get started on right away. Of course, to get started on it, I’ll need a large amount of time to figure out the intricacies of its stories and character development, and I’d rather not multi-task with something like this.
So…what does this mean for Team Ultra Force? Am I quitting? The answer is “no”. There still will be comics in 2014 and (hopefully) beyond, but there will be changes.
1. The comics will no longer have a set Mon-Wed-Fri update schedule. This will hopefully allow me to share comics with you that not only I find funnier, but you, the audience, find funnier. We both win!
2. The comics will change from time to time, depending on what I want to share with you guys. In other words: it’s not gonna be all about me anymore.
Ok that’s a lie. Some are still gonna be about me. I’m pretty interesting.
So yeah. That’s the news. If you’re disappointed, I apologize, but there is still much good that comes from this! If you’re pleased, then great! Unless you’re pleased because you think I quit. Then you suck.
