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)!
LATEST PAGE REDO: www.tryinghuman.com/index.php?…
To see all redos and comparisons, please visit Trying Human: First Tries firsttries.tryinghuman.com/ • 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. • 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. • 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.
