@Kimmikala: I am quite happy with how this is progressing. I recall you stated that Sooch never had any emotional feelings(and certainly not sexual ones) to another man. As such I was worried the story may become camp and unrealistic but it's nice to see that he's softening in a sort of "Something There" sort of way. Great now I have to listen to that song from Beauty and the Beast now.

Sooch hurt Howie. Howie hurt Sooch. Howie has had enough time to accept the fact that he cares enough about Sooch to be there for him and can now put away his feelings. Sooch is now the one having trouble with his feelings.

I am afraid that if Sooch talks about his feelings right after this moment Howie may be confused. I mean, Howie may think that Sooch is just saying nice things because he is taking care of him and not because his feelings are becoming totally real.

This is being developed in such an amazing way! When it updates all I can think is: Wow, can't wait to know more!! Congratulations on your lovely work, author and thanks for sharing it with us.

Sooch is understanding that Howie isn't going to abandon him when he needs a friend. I wonder how he feels about all this. Happy because he still has Howie in his life, sorta, or confused by everything.

As much angst and hurt this comic has caused my poor heart, it is one of my favorites and one of the few I check in on all the time. I love this story so much. Please please please keep up the good work!!!

Howie, why do you have to make this so hard?! Also, why do you have to put Sooch in such a difficult situation? ;P

Posted at February 15th, 2018, 7:34 pm

How about I needed you this whole time but couldn't tell you because I am a huge weenie?

Love the story but

I was worried at first that this story was going to hit a little two close to home. I think all same-sex attracted people have had a “in love with a straight friend” moment. But I like how maturely you’re dealing with this, and how believable it feels - even if it’s tugging at my heart strings.

I have a bit of a love hate relationship with how few panels each page is. As on one hand I’m always dying for more, but on the other the pauses and expressions are really emphasised by having their own pages to breathe.

I went back to reread your comic recently, as I’ve been sick and stuck in bed. I have to say the difference in your art is a little jarring. Your line work has gotten a lot thicker and less crisp, and honestly everyone looks much stiffer and blockier now.

This is not a attack on your skill level or anything at all, but are you perhaps working yourself too hard? Is there not enough time now that you’re on a patreon schedule to spend as much time on each page?

I’d hate to think someone writing such a nice story is becoming overworked or over demanded.

Anyway, please don’t take my critique to heart, I still love the story.

Thank you and also apologise as English is not my first and or best language.

@Relatable: Hi, Thanks for the feedback!

So for the panels, I don't think it's a good idea to put to many panels on one page, especially when it's an important scene. It's too clustered and there's so much going on in the page that it distracts. Plus when you read it all at once it flows better.

As for my art, it definitely changed a lot. I addressed this a few times before - When I first started this comic I had zero experience and used references for pretty much every single thing. I was so concerned about how the great artists out there drew everything. This was not okay because I wasn't really learning anything, and my art wasn't really authentic. Now, I no longer using references except for when I really need to, and I'm kind of learning/experimenting as I move along through the story.

Because of this my art has has fluctuated a lot as I tried to find a style that I'm comfortable with. And I'm still learning obviously! The lineart is thicker now simply because it's easier for me to draw like that for some reason. I draw much more simplistically now because I really just don't have the eye/patience for detail. The stiffness that you are describing is something that people have pointed out to me before, and it's something I have to work on.

It sounds that you think I'm rushing through my pages, and I'm sad to hear this, but I assure you I'm not. I'm spending as much time as I can afford to on them. I have work, school, and obligations to my patrons, and a life which prevent me from perfecting my pages for hours on end. Besides this is a long story and I'm not exactly trying to work on it for the rest of my life XD

Anyway, thanks again for the feedback. I'll keep what you said in mind!
