Art related. Airbrush Art from artofevans
I might spend the evening recolouring and tweaking copy for the tower pt2. Feels a bit hammy, looks better in black and white.
New page-wise 3 pages prepped for part 5. Likely to be 8-ish pages I think.
Currently working on the next update for BINARY. Took a minute to review the mobile test layout available here.
The mobile layout is vertically scrolling content with a complete rework of images and layout – hence it only contains some content.
As mentioned in the comments I’m not a fan of this approach which is widely used on engines such as tapas.io, but I’m curious to know whether readers (stats say there are readers) prefer it as well…
Desktop now has a chapter sidebar, mobile has a slide-in chapter menu. For me to push on with this approach will require an updated workflow… not sure how to make that happen as of yet.
Super pleased to announce a bulk set of uploaded story 22 pages – Stoked to get it out after such a long hiatus [!]
Feeling good about this batch.
So i’m testing out alternate social networks – in this case federated networks (Mastodon, Pixelfed) both which can connect to each other using activitypub (well, mastodon can pick up pixelfed content).
Both are fine, pixelfed is a direct clone of instagram UI, though I think its more due to time/resource limitations than anything.
Not a gamechanger IMO – setting up your own instance of small group use is cool, but when you are trying to connect to others, get work out there you want to be where everyone else is, these federated instances don’t do a good enough job of letting that happen.
For a place to dump art pixelfed might be quite useful, but then again, if connections arent important so would a blog right?
TESTING THE WATERS
I’ve changed the link at the top as the instagram feed is now K-Oed
Managed to get my head out from under a rock and make progress. Crushed by work demands and a pretty shitty year. See how we go.
Art for parts 3 + 4 is now complete – need to colour and create/apply the text content so more to do but we are almost there
I have been working – 10 Pages of new art created ready to go – could start work on adding /crafting copy.
More characters on screen = longer time to prep go figure.
But in this case I’m not happy with the break point. Feels too much like more setup (even if important) Feel a need to get to the action so I will work up ~5 more pages. Before releasing.
