SSnPP - 12 - 021 by 47ness SSnPP - 12 - 021 by 47ness
WELL. THAT'S A THING THAT JUST HAPPENED. :ohnoes:

Incidentally, I had a new reader who was recently offering their thoughts and right around Chapter 8, they let me know that they despise Elias now, BUT despise in the best way possible? :aww: It's regarding how Elias has wrongly assumed Pete is responsible for his dad's disappearance.

I dunno, on the one hand, it's strange hearing a reader tell you in so many words that they openly dislike a character you created, but that it's done as a testament to the emotional investment they have to your story makes it special too. :)

Let's face it, having real-time feedback from fans as a story is playing out has become something of the new norm for creators. But it's up to the creators to decide if they want to satiate their fans' inquiries or string them along for what's to come. Judge

(That said, I couldn't help but notice how many of my characters have been tagged for that 8 Facts Meme... hmm...) ^x^;

Originally that last panel was going to be like some overly indulgent double-two page spread. But I screwed my head back on and went with something more economical in page space. XD;

*doesn't remember if I was the one who insulted Elias*
*is so bad with names I'm not sure who Elias is*
*has to go back and read*
Please don't take this personally, man. I get confused with large casts easily. I'm better with faces than names so I do recognize every character. I might pin the wrong names on them but I can separate them.



Also...Is it just me, or has Jack's face gotten abnormally squashed on this particular page?

Haha, it wasn't you. :pat: It was on a separate webcomic site that I host SSnPP. at least I don't *THINK* it was you, using a different alias. :v
But I don't think they meant to insult the character, so much as share a very strong opinion based on what's unfolded so far. I should think so since they seen to be enjoying the comic thus far based on other comments.

Haha right?? I'm iffy with large casts too (and I get nervous when a lot of similar-looking characters start coming and going, because as a die-hard fan I want to know I'm getting the names right when X or Y suddenly shows up and not ever veering into "bah, they all look the same to me!" territory) ^^;

But as far as my own comic goes ~ yeah, I've tried to be mindful of keeping everyone distinct; both in appearance and speaking mannerisms (or lack thereof, right Sally) I'm sure if this comic were in color it might have gone over a lot easier with the broader general audience, but oh well~~~



...Jack's head in general has evolved into very squashy shapes over the course of this comic. :XD:; I regret none of it.

You host it on another website? Never knew. :shrug:

Oh well. Since I haven't yet, here goes: Elias is a twerp. HA! I insulted him. Now your greatest fears have been confirmed.
Jack is such a bro though. I think he and Fievel would go great together as partners in crime. :XD:

Your cast though is distinct and I do love all the designs. :nod: It does challenge me to out-do you as far as design, though I don't think my world is as comedic so it'd have to be subtlety? :XD: I don't know.

ssnpp.smackjeeves.com is the comic and ONLY the comic. :B

HAHA well yes. XD A lot of these side characters like the ragamuffins were created on the fly but like any good faithful fiction writer, I stuck by them and let their adventures pan out organically. Here's hoping Elias grows some in the future... :þ
(I could see that; Jack may only be 11, but probably knows what it means to be "thick as thieves"~) Mafia Coinflipper

Haha thanks. :aww: I guess it's comedic with a dash of dark elements (you can thank my love of 80s children's movies like Secret of NIMH, Return to Oz, etc. for that) I think you have your opening characters really figured out though! That's always a good sign of things to come. :D

Have you ever used tapastic? I enjoyed using that a bit better than smackjeeves personally. 

And thank you! :D

I had thought about moving SSnPP to Tapastic way back in 2013 when they were new. :P I decided not to since SSnPP was already a 'mature' comic that had been running for 4 years and not this shiny exciting new thing that people could get hyped about.

That said my follow-up webcomic will most likely debut on Tapastic (and maybe follow a format more befitting that crowd? I always intended SSnPP to be something that reads best all in one sitting, rather than digesting one page a week, or even a block of pages per month.)

Pahahahah, you better be doin' that 8 facts meme soon too, man!!  XD
And aaaaggghhh that far-right panel is so superb, I love the dynamicism and how you composed it so that to see what's fully going on you DO have to hit it as you scroll to the bottom of the page, daaaang!

Ahaha... I feel like 8 Facts is just too prying?? At least for SSnPP, for better or worse, relies a lot on suspense and hidden motives. =3=;;; My characters are just sneaky SOBs like that. >D

Glad you think so~ :D I mean the temptation to do a two-page spread of the crash was there, but it would have been a TON of extra work for something that didn't really add much at this point in the story. :0

You can make them about really trivial/mundane character traits, they don't have to reveal spoilers or secrets, man-!!  Like their favorite food, color, etc.-!  I still feel like it'd be a lot of fun to see you do?  <:'D

um

I never bothered to come up with trivia for them. :iconawkwardplz: Not nearly enough anyway. (Even back as a elementary school kid, all my OCs were always way more plot-driven types than ones that had much of a bio.)

Like, I think I have some stuff, but I don't want to have to explain more than what's already there in the comic and basically commit myself to a mediocre character trait/backstory. :work:

"Perfectionist"? What's that? Some kind of cologne?? XD;;
