A Harsh Lesson Full -Warning BIG file- by TomPreston A Harsh Lesson Full -Warning BIG file- by TomPreston
So I just thought I would experiment with formats. What do you think of the story being presented in one long continuous page? Does it flow better not being chopped up? Because, if this does work better, maybe I'll upload it all as one big story here on DA after it's done posting on my website or something... I dunno just tossing out ideas...

I will probably delete this soon, I was just curious to see what people thought...

EDIT: Wow, the response back for this was quite positive! I won't be deleting this. In fact, I think I'll be making this the preferred method of the SYAC storylines from now on. I'll release them 1 page every other day, then when the story ends I'll release a big long version like this. That way, everyone is happy.

Thanks everyone for your feedback!

lololololol good lesson thoo
So what is the point here?

that the old man is wrong in function, but not wrong in method?

It is a strange reality sometimes, that people can be part right . . . .
I love this comic. It totally changed my perspective on drawing. Thank you! ^u^ Strangely, I don't draw as well as Tenko... Hehe...

Wow...Newgrounds is the same way, and I draw from reference a lot, even if it's for small things like hands. This relateable, but I kinda don't like the artist behind this comic. Tom, please, follow the same attitude presented in this comic.

dude I've experience that same thing before , but some time you have someone give it to ya rough and hard for you to see clearly, like a bitch slap to the face.
but i think every artist had to go though moments like this, great comic i hope to see more like this, keep up the amazing artwork!
