SO! I have basically come to terms with the fact that this comic will never get made if I try to do the painting myself. It’s just going to take so long to do per page, when I compound the time I have set aside for it with the time I have for MGDMT on top of my full time job, I won’t realistically be able to finish more than a page or two a month. But if I can focus on line art and hire someone to take care of the colours, I’ll conceivably be able to juggle both comics with my job and still have time to do normal functioning adult human things like sleep and engage in social activities.
So my lovely and amazing and stupendous Australiawife Emily has agreed to be my wingman on this adventure, I know with her in my corner this thing is going to be done like 100x faster and look 100x better than if I did it myself and I was impatiently trying to scribble colour everywhere. I’m really excited because this is making this look like a feasible project that will actually happen and not just get shelfed every time my life drops the hammer on me.
ALSO that means this comic is costing me a decent sum out of pocket to produce, which I’m largely going to try to cover with MGDMT ad revenue, so it’s really going to help me a lot if you whitelist the site on your ad blocker. I’m also planning to start a Patreon page in the near future to see how that helps. Just because some people were asking, Platinum Black will be free to read when it launches! No one is obligated to pay anything but I’ll try to have the option there if people would like to help out.
Exciting things await!
