Haha a couple of ya guessed it right last week! :P

In case some of ya forgot, that's Arith in the top panel with the dream to become an Umbra


Hey guys! So I made a pretty big decision (big to ME anyway). I can no longer do these 2or 3-in-1 monster pages within a 7 day period and make it look the way I want it to look. As you have noticed the updates have been getting further apart.

I hate that.

And not to mention...eeevery single week I settle on art I know is not good just so I can get the page done. And eeevery single page after I work for hours I am ready to pull my hair out by the end of it and I HATE the end result of the page. Literally feel sick uploading it because that's how unhappy I am with the turnout. SO NO MORE OF THAT!

Guys, from now on I will be posting regular sized pages (like u know...regular 6 panel ones x"D). I want to make the art something I can be proud of. Also I'd eventually like to print some day and the pages as they are not aren't usable. This will enable to me to improve the art, update regularly again, redo old pages for print, and/or work on OTHER art for a change. My creativity is stifled with these monsters. I can't breathe with these monsters. Don't have time to improve with these monsters aaand the files are so big they constantly crash my computer. So it's time. LONG OVERDO time--I shoulda done this when I FIRST started to have trouble making the deadline.

Thanks for your patience putting up with me! I'm going to Wyoming for a random trip to Longmire Days next week so don't expect an update! After that I'll be back on a regular ON TIME and CONSISTENT updating schedule which is where I like to be! Thanks for sticking with me this long you guys you have no idea how much it means to me!

The sparkles are strong with Killion... xD
(seriously though, lookit that kid all sparkly with his fangirl eyes xD)
...maybe Hizruk could benefit a bit from those sparkles too, he's not looking so happy xD

Re: A/N: I've always been really impressed by how you managed to make these monster pages, and in full colour too! I can't speak for everyone here, but I for sure totally understand you needing to downsize your pages. I think you've done great so far!
Also, at least from my point of view, the art on this page especially is really good! Some of the faces in particular are really neat on this page :D

(Have a good trip!)

I don't know about speaking for everyone, but if I let you speak for me, it will save me some typing. Besides you pretty much echo my sentiments here anyway. :D

HeSerpenty, you have to do what you think you need to. This is your call.

LOL fangirl eyes x"D. Haha totally!

Thank you so much for saying that, Kat! It's really encouraging because I struggle a lot with the decision. And I'm VERY glad to hear about the art on this page because yet again it was another one I wasn't sure about! I feel so much better now!

And thank you! <3

All that matters is a class A story. And what ever way you want to tell it is fine by us!

Thank you so much! Overall...I think it will generally end up being the same amount of content since I have lately only been managing one page per 12 days X"D haha

That's totally cool, Serpy. If anything, I think smaller pages will let you really focus on what is going on in each scene.

That's very true Matt! overall it'll probably improve my storytelling! X"D

Man, there's some good drawing on this page! I especially like those side profile pics of Hizruk and Kilion for some reason. :o

And yeah, I think it's a great idea to do the pages how YOU want! I really have no idea how you were doing so many panels per page like this. I could never do it. X'D (I mean I tried once and it nearly killed me haha.)

I hope your trip is a wonderful one! <3

only normal size pages every week? *sniff* how could you????

Just kidding, Serpy! you've spoiled us for too long, and as a point you and I have discussed in depth, you HAVE to be happy with what you produce! I like this decision!

Thank you Don! Yes you were always one to encourage me not to go overboard and stress myself out too much! I knew you would understand and be supportive <3. In the long run this will make everything so much easier for me! And I think even improve the reading experience too!

Awww Serpy, I'm both sad and happy for you--sad that you've had to suffer with this not being fun for you for a while, but also happy that you've decided to do what you want! Ultimately, no amount of pleasing your fans can replace making yourself happy, so please do what makes you happy! We love SoO, but more importantly we love you <3 *hugs*

Thank you Proxy! You've known me and my struggle for quite a while now with these huge pages! If I don't enjoy telling my own story what is the point, you know?

Thank you so much for always being so supportive of me! It really has encouraged me so much!

"Guys, from now on I will be posting regular sized pages (like u know...regular 6 panel ones x"D)"

Say whaaaaaaa...........?

But seriously, I'm glad that you want to take the sensible way and trim the comic pages down, I'm sure they will be just as enjoyable and the art will be amazing! Not that I think now it's not amazing. It is. But I know how it is being not happy with your own results ^^' I know the feeling way too well ^^' So good luck Serpy, I'm looking forward to more pages x)

Also.. Keymen is playing Daggot like fiddle x)

LOL!!! Ikr? Hahaha all the times you tried to tell me to make normal pages and aaall the times I said "NEEEVAAAR" is all flushed down the toilet xD. I'm like any other rebellious kid who doesn't want to listen to their parents until they learn the hard way and THEN they do what they were advised except present it as their own idea x"D.

Haha....that is exactly what I did isn't it x"D

Phew! I just reread the entirety of SoO and got caught up on everything I'd been missing. It's as great as I remembered and the new pages are AMAZINGGG!! I think the snazzy new Umbra uniforms deserve some fanart~ you know I love a man in uniform *^*

Also, I fully support your decision to do smaller pages! I've always been amazed at your ability to put out such high quality pages with SO MUCH going on in them, but if you're feeling stifled this sounds like the healthy choice! You gotta do what's best for you! <33

WOw, the whole thing! Thank you Roux that means SO MUCH for me to hear! That the whole read through is still engaging <3 (that archive ain't gettin' any SMALLER afterall :P)

And thank you so much for the support too! I had a good run with those monster pages but... I just can't anymore. Like I wanted to die by the end of those things X"DD. I feel better already like a huge weight lifted off!

bro, i can relate to absolutely EVERYTHING you said... nothing sucks (ok few things) suck worse than having to put out something you're not proud of, and even worse finding out the work you've done before has to be reworked to use it for something else. #disheartening I feel you 100%. Sorry you're dealing with this right now, i know everyone here will support you all the way with however you need to work from now on <33 personally i think this is a really great decision, especially if it helps you enjoy your process and comic again! That's what it's all about. <3 (UvU)b #HIGHFIVE #AAAAAAGHIHAVESOMUCHREADINGTOCATCHUPON

have fun on zee trip! :D

LOLYES your pet Daggot missed you so very much! (HAHA!)
