Sara & Kleeyo has now finished its first 30 days. Beginning on Dec 11, the comic as received almost exactly 10k hits right as Jan 11th rolled around. I am really happy with the outcome and I feel as though the comic had gotten off the ground quite nicely. Although it helped that WoWeh had my quest comic up at its "latest comic" for almost 3 weeks. I know nearly all my visitors were readers from there.
The time needed to build each comic is still rather great, which is why I'm still looking into ways to improve tablet drawing techniques. Direct-to-digital drawing would save heaps of time and allow me to draw larger comics each week. I feel as though I'm finally starting to develop a standard character design for Sara, who is by far the most challenging of the characters to draw (at least in a way that she looks the same every panel).
Overall, thank you all for a great first month. I look forward to seeing you all in the months ahead!
If anyone needs to contact me for any reason, my email is prismtank99 at yahoo dot com. (Yes, I used to be a huge Red Alert 2 fan).
Drop me a line if you have any questions, comments, concerns that you feel do not belong in any of the comic comments sections, or have requests or something to submit. Hope to hear form you all!
Greetings! Welcome to Sara & Kleeyo!
As I'm sure you can guess, Sara & Kleeyo are based off my actual WoW toons, which I played with much dedication for four years. Saradenko was my raider/main, Kleeyo was my dedicated PvP toon and Jyosette was my raiding alt. I had to leave WoW in Feb 2010, shortly before the release of Ruby Sanctum, in preparation for a military deployment- one I currently have 6 months remaining in, however I still had the motivation to begin this comic while overseas as I desired to rekindle my interest in artwork with the ultimate goal of drawing my own book cover for my next novel. My main source of inspiration came from Kelly Aaron's "World of Warcraft, eh?" Webcomic primarily from her blending of WoW and manga- the very same style combination I would have used.
