30 fans? Ah, thanks!

Honestly, you guys are the best. Not only have you had to put up with my infrequent updating, but you stuck it out till this long. You guys are the true readers! Most cartoon comics on SJ rarely gets fans unless they have some Video game characters or update like crazy.

Seriously and I plan to make it up to you guys by actually updating the comic more. In fact, I'm almost done with the line art right now. Might not be out for a few more days, but at least it's progress.

I'm not sure if you guys noticed, but one thing I hate is having a messy comic. When I draw, I always want to make it as clear and clean as possible. While I'm not expert at drawing comics, the fact I want to make it decent causes me to panic in a way. Which causes my hands to sweat uncontrollably. Not only that, but scanning and cleaning the page is just as time consuming. Even when I did spent all that time, I only get 5-6 panels out of it. Which limits to how much plot I really can push.

Not to sound like I'm complaining. The whole thing is a learning experience for me. So once again I have to thank you for waiting patiently for the comic to update.

With that, I'm going leave you guys a sample of the next page.

TL;DR: Thank you guys for reading and faving the comic. Expect more updates of Flint.

Not dead, just delayed

Just want to let you guys know that I'm still working on Flint. I've been very occupied for the past two months.

I don't have any drafts planned for the chapter, but have a good idea of what I want to do in it. Length wise, it might end up being 20 pages. Also found some learned some new editing techniques to shave off a good chunk of time.

I know you might be bummed I haven't uploaded anything in a while. So I thank you for being patient with my comic updating schedule.

P.S. Secret Santa is happening on SJ once again. I'm participating, and you should too. You just might get lucky and get an awesome gift!

Flint Reynolds in 3D?



SO, while I was planning over my drafts and doing a butt load of work for both school and my job. I was trying to think other ways to do Flint. Sure I could go with the traditional style I've been doing on the comic or try something new. While I wouldn't want to ruin the style of the comic, 3D would be just awesome to explore, learn, and would definitely increase my chances of getting a job I really would like.

So here's the pro's and con's for each.

Traditional Pro's:
  • I've mastered the basics of Photoshop and getting a good looking comic on the net.
  • Would keep the same style of the comic

Traditional Con's
  • I spend a lot of time working on each page.
  • Panels have been reduced to save some time.
  • Lack of consistancy between characters and perspectives

3D Modeling Pro's
  • Would only have to make one of each model
  • Shading, lighting, and backgrounds would be extremly easy to add.
  • The uses for 3D modeling is limitless. One being able to make 3D games

3D Con's
  • I'm starting to learn the basics.
  • The first few weeks and months might be slow.
  • Setting up poses might prove a challenge in the begining


So I'm going to take some more time to learn this 3D modeling. I know I just started this comic not too long ago. If it all goes well, I promise that the pages will be twice as long and even update 2-3 times a week. Until then, I'm going to take my time to learn it.

Small Hiatus & Reflection


TL;DR: I'm sorry to inform everyone that the next Flint will not be up for 2-3 weeks, and I've added copywrite junk & a contact page.

Due to the fact I have a ton of stuff going on right now. I'm not going to be able to make a Flint for a while. It's not only just real life stuff, but the fact I have no drafts to work with. Unlike my other two webcomics, I'm carefully planning out each chapter before I dive in and make pages. The first chapter was only 4 pages when I first made it, with 2 more added later, and one page that was split. Even after that, I rewrote 3 pages to make the chapter as best as I could. I think this is much better than making pages as I go.

My goal for the comic was to shorten the amount of panels used in a page and provide a faster paced comic than Wibble. I was hoping the page would be faster to make, but that was a lie. It's about the same amount of work as a full page of Wibble. However, the comic is going exactly how I wanted it. So I'm glad with this result.

I also wanted to try colored-based backgrounds that reflected the mood of the story. That didn't turn out too well with me. Turns out I really hate drawing voidless worlds, even if it had a wall. So I'm going to draw some sort of background in the future.

Now unlike my other comics. I plan this comic to be about 100 pages long. Yep, I'm aiming to finish this book by sometime in 2012 (lol). Doesn't mean it will be the end of Flint, just the end of this story arc.

I know some of you guys out there might be sad there wont be a new Flint within these few weeks, but I do have some good news for another webcomic. Turns out Sushigummy is going to start doing Detective Tarson soon (maybe this week). I know isn't the place for it, but I'm going to help him shade it in a bit.
