You have....too many PCs? Are you collecting them or something?? XD
I can sort of understand if you kept upgrading your setup or something then you'd have the old ones sitting around.

However since I have a spare PC in my room I can't talk really can I :P

Another great week!
I did indeed notice the artworks and I can imagine that it would be a pain to get an artwork through all the stages of commission in just one week. Props to both your artists and your organization/communication skills to achieve such a feat :P
Just a thought, it would be great to have the artwork posted along with each new chapter so it doesn't disappear when the new week is up

I had a discussion with a friend over a similar topic and we sort of decided that a lot of content consumers (aka the average Joe) don't have a very critical eye to notice such details, and so putting in the extra effort to write or draw higher quality doesn't yield much better results.

Art and writing critics can see a lot easier the minor errors and mistakes, such as animation tricks to save time etc.

Certainly you can lower the quality far enough and everyone starts to notice, you get memes made of the awful shots and topics trend on how the show is getting milked etc, long runners like Naruto have this big time. Maybe that's a budget issue as well, I would definitely like to see a graph of budget vs. quality for a bunch of animes. I mean Ghibli at the top end has a massive budget I would assume.

and I'm sure you're not the only one, Coryn.
I suppose amongst other reasons that's what makes the vertical format popular is its ease of access. You can read it all the time no matter where you are. Which means the target market is larger as you dont need a laptop or PC to view it comfortably.

Perspective boxes are definitely very useful, because you can use them as guidelines to draw very complex objects just as a combination of simple cubes. You can immediately ballpark the correct positions of, say, a pose of a character without having to think about complex muscle or arm/head shapes, just focusing on the core of the figure. And then fill everything in around those cubes (^_^)

Yiiiiikes so long since we last completed a chapter. Shame on us XD

anyways enjoy the long awaited release. Quality in the first half is super bad as it had been so long since I had worked on the project I couldn't remember anything nor get my gears going for this project at all. You can see the sudden bump in quality as everything balanced out again about half way (^_^;)


Chapter 7 - Escape the Labyrinth


Not much to say on this to be honest. I hadn't realized until posting how badly we'd gotten behind schedule due to lots of stuff happening, but I'm glad we're back in business. Should get the remaining chapters churned out fairly quickly as we're close to the end of the story and frankly we both just want it finished and gone XD

I think to some extent it got behind because it was a team project, I think we both didn't really have the right mindset to view the project as "ours", perhaps. Always hard to say as there's many variables at play in both our lives and the project itself.

@slammy that's so true, and I wonder if that mindset is what made me consider the question in the first place. I also mostly wait for shows to be finished before binging them lol although my favourites I'll devour the moment they come out XD

@robin thanks for the specific mentions it'll be good to take a glance at those. As you say, an amount of sketchiness can be forgiven if the style is consistent. I've been working on such a style myself for medium quality work.

and indeed if the wait time is too long it does make it hard to remember what happened last, I get that a lot.

@MK hahaha true true the best of both worlds would be great. Your advice is spot on with the buffer chapters, that's something I'll definitely be doing myself when the time comes.

well my phone isn't particularly small but I don't know if all webcomics are designed to be read on a phone?
I can't say I'd considered it until now but I suppose most people do browse the web on their phone, especially at work or on transport.

I do have an SSD :D
but to be honest I don't see the need to upgrade just because my PC is considered "old", it can do everything I need it to, as fast as I need it to :D :D

I was tempted to make this a vote but I think most people would want to qualify their answer, so opted out of it.

I think everyone can agree that when we read manga, we want to enjoy the art, right?
But does that mean that we'd be happy to wait ages for a super high quality release, compared to waiting a normal time for a normal quality release?

Basically would you prefer a rougher quality manga if you could read it more frequently? (or if the chapters were longer etc)

I'm definitely torn between the idea, but partly because I use a lot of manga as art reference, so sketchy manga isn't as useful to me. But for stories that I'm really hooked on, I'd read the next chapter in almost any quality if that was all that was available. Especially once I've caught up with the latest release, it's soooo long to wait between chapters and when it does come out, the story doesnt progress very far and it's annoying enough that I wait a while to binge a larger chunk to get the feeling that I've actually read a proper amount of the story.

I think to some extent this issue only affects beginner manga artists, artists working on their own, part time, or on a minimal staff team where they can't generate a normal-to-high level chapter each week or even to a timetable at all.

I suppose a sub-question is, what is a reasonable weekly/monthly output for a manga, if the quality could be controlled to boost the output?
Most weekly manga are 15-20 pages a week, but if they "sketched" the pages, I bet they'd still look pretty decent and be a lot faster to produce. They could churn out 4 times as much at just half the quality I'd estimate.

Just wondering what everyone's thoughts were and if you can think of any other related factors.
