I'm so incredibly happy to see more Metanoia!

(Also happily rereading the Mini-comic dream sequence yet again - but why isn't it part of the main story, dangit?! Also took me this long to notice his woad/paint retreating when he's talking with Zan, because, well, THEM, dammit!)

Heh, thank you very much, I'm flattered! I'm open for small commissions - small art cards like this: [link] or this: [link]
or for chibi commissions. If you've got a book, magazine, or website you want me to illustrate, we can talk. I've got a comic, a book, and an internship currently on my plate, so I'm trying to schedule anything else fairly carefully.

You were actually there for quite a while. I had a discussion with you about how I would tell you I dreamt of you, so I figured I should go through with my promise. I also advised you to stick around, as in your present form you existed only as a product of my mind, and thus as soon as you left my presence you would cease to exist. Ultimately you turned evil, though, which was a shame. You tried to steal my shoes. You may or may not have turned into a bear, it gets kinda fuzzy after a while...

And how do you know you don't show up in other people's dreams often? Maybe random people like me dream about you all the time, but don't tell you because they don't want to seem creepy.

Kinda sorta maybe? We've been talking, and he's been feeling better. He hasn't been idle all this time, either, but he's still getting over his fear of an audience and expectation, so I wouldn't look to see too much from him for a while yet.

I -am- going to get back to you about those commissions... I'm currently devoting my brain to thesis, and am apt to break into topic-thoughts at any second. Sorry it's taking so long! I can assure you, however, that I have night nothing but adulatory praise, even to an effusive degree, for the one I've seen. I'm like to go on for ages.

Thank you so much, again! Sorry for being a poor correspondent!

Lest you think no one notices, I've been watching this and I was all excited a few days ago when you finished it. Is the formatting process very long and complicated?

It's...well, I've never done it, but according to the housemates who do, it is a real pain, even with good software to help. But it will get done, and done well and soon!

(Hee, and I'm glad people actually read this thing.)

Ha! I have thought, "I'm glad she can't see how often I check this page, 'cause it would be embarrassing." Does SP format them for you (or did I misunderstand your LJ)?
Reply
:iconmelukilan:
melukilan Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2008
SP needs the unformatted pages to publish them in her magazine; Studio Whipping Boy also releases the doujinshi as separate, stand-alone little comicbooks, and for that they have to be formatted for printing double-sided, ready to be folded on our home printer. I know, it's confusing.

Heh. You probably don't check it as often as I do. ^_^;
