There was an Inksgiving event happening on Tapas, where people donate 'ink' to creators they like, just before turkey day. I didn't expect to get many, if any donations since I didn't come up with any incentives or mini comics/art encouraging readers to support my comic. Although I wound up getting a lot, so I sketched something cute up for them as thanks.

Whoop! Updated my cover, and recently-ish started chapter 4 of my .

Links below if this cover makes you intrigued. ( rated 17+. Contains nudity, violence, and profanity. Also sensitive subjects such as mental illness, suicide, substance abuse, trauma.)

I think I'll accept that I just want to experiment with this one to see what I can do, and how other’s perceive it (while being fully open to critique and improvement), then make my future dark comics less tone deaf.

This might be my general desensitization to macabre, dark visuals, or I really might be an oddball. Not that I'm making anything particularly deep, or scary, but it is fun to draw out a "nice looking" scenario and see if anyone notices uncomfortable implications... even though I know it just totally destroys all remnants of the sensitive themes I'm working with. Lol.

Looking at how bright the past couple pages are reminds me of some of the critiques I get about making sure to darken the visuals to the darker tone in scenes, which is super valid. It makes me feel weird for being more disturbed by things that look normal, and chill, but are unnerving or gross when you actually think about it... at least when the scene isn't outright horrifying. (Gore, murder, something that is loudly frightening)

In the back of my mind I think I'm hoping for in-depth analysis because I myself like to over analyze. But this would be best for after the whole comic is finished, and would be something I'd most likely have to pay for with how much work it takes (which I'm super cool with)... not that TGtaHR will really be that deep imo.

Looking at the calendar the last page of chapter 3 will be posted on the 1st of October, or maybe sooner if I get too excited and lose my self-control. How exciting!

Usually when asking for feedback the most negative thing I get is "NSFW/serious stuff isn't my thing, sorry!" or something related to visuals, so I'm hoping to get some constructive stuff for story during my in between chapter critique trolling. There's no such thing as a perfect story after all. Lol.
