TH - Redo Update
I'm starting Volume 2 (Chapters 5 through 8) and this time I'm going in order (save for covers; covers don't count ha)!

TH - Vol One Completion by IntroducingEmy TH - Vol Two Completion by IntroducingEmy

• Your art is really different in the beginning.
Tell me about it! I'm redrawing the first four chapters for the first published volume. You can measure my progress with the meter on the homepage! This comic is my training wheels into the webcomic world so I'm still learning.

• Why are you redoing the pages?
There's a number of reasons such as the original pages are not formatted correctly. Almost all of the first volume pages are smaller than 9 x 13.5", less than 300DPI, missing margins/text/etc. Another reason is that they just don't pop as much as the newer pages and I've noticed that a lot of readers forget important plot information in those chapters. I'm hoping that this will help keep the pages memorable. X3 I'm also finding myself improving tenfold by redoing old work. I'm seeing mistakes I've made and by fixing them I won't be making them again. If you've never redone any of your old work, give it a try. :D

• How many do you plan to redo?
As of now, I'm redoing all 139 pages in Volume One (Chapters 1 through 4) but I'm utilizing a lot of the original backgrounds and page layouts so it's going pretty quickly. As I put books out I'm going to be touching up old backgrounds and inking but I probably won't be doing the complete overhaul that I'm doing now.

• How long will this take?
I'm not sure as of yet. Every now and then I need to take breaks from the old pages to work on commissions or other TH projects but I'm hoping by the end of this year I'll have the first volume out for purchase.

• Are you going to stop updating/update less/update with revamp pages?
I will not be updating with new pages (though I'll let you know when I reupload them in the archives) and I will continue to update with four new pages every week. :heart:

• I miss the old pages! Bring them back!
After the first volume is out, I'm going to make a special archive with all the old pages and some commentary on them. ;3 The old pages won't be gone forever.

I have a quick announcement to make: current updates for TH are going to go on hiatus until :snowflake: December 1st, 2015 :snowflake:  I think I’ve only gone on hiatus 2 or 3 times in all the years I’ve been working on Trying Human so most of yins are aware this isn’t a regular thing.

November is a very hectic month for me this year.  I have two cons (Laughlin UFO Symposium and LosCon 2015) that I’ll be attending right in a row.  With my birthday on the 10th and Thanksgiving at the end of the month, I’m just not going to have the time to put into the new pages.  Otherwise everything will still go on as normal, such as working on the redos and other art.  Plus I really want the Volume 2 Kickstarter out in early 2016 and need the extra prep time.

Please tell all your TH friends what the plan is in case they miss this message.  I don’t want folks thinking I’m loafing through November.  Thank you for sticking with Trying Human until lovely December. :alien:

In the meantime, please check out some of the other awesome comics on Hiveworks (TH’s publisher):

PS - LosCon 2015 may or may not happen depending on if I hear back about my panel.  I thought I was invited/approved for it but it seems like it may be floating in the ether undecided.

PPS - I will still be working on Trying Human: First Tries so don't forget to check for redo updates!
