Oh shit it's been a month ahahaha...
Uhm, well, hi. It's been a while, yeah? Well- it started with a huge art block that I didn't draw at ALL for a while and almost gave it up completely, and then school started to kick my ass before I ever started. I'm going to college, again, in case anyone's wondering, so I'm starting the spring semester. I'm going up there to DORM tomorrow, actually, this will be a first so uh wish me luck?
Anyway- Untitled. It's.. not what I want it to be. I'm NOT ENDING IT- I REPEAT: I AM NOT DISCONTINUING UNTITLED. This shit's my baby. What it also is, though, is the product of a very influenced high schooler. I started to make this story and plan it when I was in 11th grade.. I was only what- 16 (my birthday's in august)? It wasn't that long ago, but I've grown a lot since then and I've like to think that I've matured and got a better grip on story telling, and more realistic character traits. There's a LOT of things in Untitled that I cannot stand, but that I can't go back and fix within the story as it is.
So, what I'm rambling about (with horrible writing, I know), is that for NOW this comic is under construction. I'm going to come back with this re-written, with hopefully more laughs, more tears, and MUCH better character development. You'll see a lot more of each character and who they really are- you'll especially see more of Hector and Thi, and Ghost's personality will finally come to light. The genre itself will probably change (there will be a lot less slice of life, and the story will turn darker and grittier and more fantasy-esque), but that's my own personal preference. I have that right as an author and I'm exercising it now! Muahahaa.
Anyway.. that's the reason the update's taken so long. I'm going to try and get back on the ball with drawing, even though there's school, and I'm SURE I'll write a lot cause I'm majoring in creative writing. So, yeah! If you wanna keep up with me in general, there's always my tumblr
you can ask questions and stuff there, too, my ask box is always open. I'll also be posting new character designs and stuff as I go on. Or, if you want to follow just the art (even though I don't use this account as much really, and I post art on tumblr tagged as 'my art') my deviantart account is
anyway- hope to see you guys soon! Also- if you could just comment below if you'd rather I eventually delete these pages and start on the same comic profile, or if I should make a new one here on SmackJeeves, that would be awesome! I'm leaning towards brand new, but I mean, then people have to follow it ahahaha.

@MaryAndersson: Alright. Thank you for the input. :>

@warren1965: Haha thanks. Untitled's always been for me and me alone (as much as I love you guys), so I know what you mean completely.

@shadowpen: Ahhh that's what I was thinking! and thanks~!

I understand what you mean.. I think you should do what is easiest for you, I guess.. I mean, for me, I don't think it matters.

I would say deal with real life and spoil us when you can with updates. As much as we love the story it is your's and it has to make you happy or what would the point be in the end?

Hi there~
Yea, I'm glad you decided to do this. I just read the whole thing, and sometimes I had urge to just give up reading but I couldn't because it has so much potential! Story, characters and drawings. When they're colored they look really cool. I also love the thing with powers and I would really want you to explore this a little bit more if you could. I know that you put raw drawings 'cuz you didn't have time to do more, but I would rather have you taken more time to finish, than see it unfinished. Sometimes I just sooo wanted to see some scenes colored...
I think you should made new comic under the same comic profile. It could be quiet motivating after a while, when you'll put few chapters and compare them to this and realize how far you move on.
Yup. Damn, I hope I wasn't rude? I never commented on any comic I read. I just wanted to say that I'm your fan and I'll be waiting~~

@Nemuru0: Aww that's sweet, I think? Well thank you for the feedback, andd letting me know what you think. Thanks for commenting in general! I'm definitely getting back into this comic very soon, and I'm debating if I want to do greyscale or if I want to color it. I might do greyscale with only hints of color in certain scenes even, I haven't decided the feel or dynamic I want ON the actual pages. I HAVE started to re-design characters (wait till you see what Eames looks like~) within a reasonable bounds, and in this new edition the powers will play a MUCHHHHHHH bigger role. Like finally. Seriously.
Though, it's a lot more actiony, and it's a HUGE transition from this slice-of-life thing that this has going on... but I'm going to enjoy it a lot more, which is what's important. I hope that you, and others, can enjoy it a lot more with me, though~!
College is going tough, but I'm trying to make time for this comic once everything has settled down a little bit more, and I get in the groove of balancing my time for studying and projects, and new friends. So thanks for being there, this comment actually really made my night, since the past two days have been shit :> so thanks~
