6) Yes, although "famous" is a sleight outlier of a word. Famous to the fans of the show or famous in-world context? Perhaps "distinct" or "recognizable" might fit better.

Another red herring:
Some shoulder armour and details. This is completely my own addition. So in that sense, it's a clue :P

Some details are waiting to be Dremmelled, so it looks like there are some gaps between lines here and there.
The red and blue parts will be sprayed silver along with the whole thing, but I do like the primary colour contrast feel. Perhaps for another outfit sometime....

Ahahaha I know the feeling of having so many pending things to read...I appreciate the comment :D
We'll be speedrunning it to first volume completion within the next few months so stay tuned for that.
Really it's just a practice story for both writer and artist to let loose, but we both got a bit caught up on fine details where we shouldn't have I think,which slowed us down.

I feel like "who the freeze is in my ice ship" came straight off an alaskan fishing boat somehow  :sure: lol

To go waaay back to an earlier point you made. It's no outlier you encountered of getting a lot of reddit and twitter and not a lot of forums. We just aren't an appreciated space of online culture like we used to be. I think it's just easier for people to default to one place where they can get a little of everything. Although in my experience if you want to deep dive, you still have to find a little spot like ours.

gah! Yes that should have been a "no". So there are modern sciences involved eh?

hmm... I feel like it's obviously some sort of isekai, which is a genre I personally dislike, so that's going to make this harder...

6. Is this character famous for using a specific weapon?

Ehehehe that does make it a bit fairer :P
well as far as progress goes, I managed to finish the other boot, so I'm getting there slowly but surely.
I understand that time for an artist is important, which is why I am willing to do money upfront.  I'm not saying that 50% is too high either, but I would need to change how the payout would have to happen to ensure there is an incentive to complete the pages suggested.  This way, both the artist can protect their time, while I protect my capital.  Also, I made sure to save all of the money this project requires, including extra, so not being able to pay should not happen unless banks start going under.

An example would be, if the goal was 2 pages for the month, pay 50% the 2 page cost ($100 and $50) at the beginning of the month.  Then upon completion of the 2 pages, pay the other 50%, and if before the first of the next month, add the extra completion bonus of $100 to each artists' pay.  If not, then the extra is just lost.  Then I would probably have a meeting to find out what happened, and determine what the goal for the new month should be.

I would also like to include an incentive for going beyond the goal as well.  Like after completing the month's goal, if an other page is completed, I would pay an additional 50% of the page cost as a performance bonus. ($150 and $75 for the page)

Upwork sounds interesting, I could take a look into it.
I use third-party services such as Upwork to arrange contracts. The money is put into escrow so both sides are guaranteed they don't lose it for work put in (or lack thereof). You also have options to set up milestones so you can pay part of the contract as the work progresses. Of course with every third-party service, there's a fee attached to them. For Upwork, it's 5% for both freelancers and commissioners, but that's the price you pay for safety and security.
The opposite is true as well. We, the artists, could do a whole months of work and then you could just disappear or suddenly be unable to pay Then we would be losing that same $. It goes both ways. That's why 50% tends to be best in situations like this.
I am willing to negotiate some up front pay, but that would require additional stipulations as I could just end up losing money paying like that.  ie. I am told that 3 pages will be done for the month.  Pre-pay $150 to the primary artist and $75 to the assistant, but at the end of the month only 1 page is actually completed due to a family/pet/medical/random emergency.  Does that mean I just lose the extra $75 I already paid, plus if I am paying upon completion of the page, I pay another $75 between both artists?  That would mean that I lost $150 for that month.

I am willing to change the reimbursement to a completion bonus, so if the page goal for the month is reached, each artist will get paid the extra $100.
