27 (who?)
Remember a while back I said there was something I was gonna announce about SYAC? Well here we go! I'm coming back to do more SYAC's soon. All of it too, the NSYAC and the old SYAC stuff.

We're working right now on categorizing everything in the archives, so you can browse just the stuff you want to look at and not have it be this clusterf**k of everything hodgepodged together. We should have something ready for viewing within the next few days.

What I am going to do differently this time around is not conform to a set release schedule. I'm gonna make the comics as I feel like it and as the jokes come to me. Hopefully, without the pressure of a constant release schedule I can work more on refining the artwork and making sure nothing is rushed out.

Having said that... please keep in mind this is still a series of silly low-brow cartoon strips so... don't be expecting DaVinci level art here or anything. SYAC has never been a series where the art was meant to look like a DC comic book, and I have no interest in going in that artistic direction for it. But I will be spending more than just a few hours on each strip and at least trying to not have as many anatomical mistakes as previous ones. And maybe every now and then I'll experiment with the style in the comics based around my cartoon incarnation, while keeping and refining the style of the NSYAC series as it progresses.

We are also working on a fan-art page too. I don't know when that will be completed, it might take a lot longer than everything else. But eventually fans will be able to upload their own art and comics and have their own section of the website. Uploads will be moderated (of course) and have to be approved before they're visible and in the archives but... yeah, that's maybe a thing that will happen.... sometime... eventually...

How's that sound for everyone? Is that an agreeable solution? I don't know when the first set of new strips will be going up, but I will keep you all informed. And yes, we will finally find out what happened to poor Emily, as well as continue to follow cartoon me.

For NSYAC I'd really like to see you make model sheets and set rules for yourself, like I once suggested before. Not only would I love to see it, it will be much more easy and much more fun to make poses for your characters. (Also, for fanartists it will be more practical)
TomPreston Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2013
I actually do have model sheets of all the characters... I just don't know why it would be necessary to show them to the public...
PepperSupreme Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2013
It's not necessary, I just like to see that sort of thing. Concept art and the like. If you feel uncomfortable with publishing that, then you really shouldn't though.

Woot! Best news I've heard all day.

Hey glad to hear, your SYAC comics always give me a good laugh on days I feel a bit down or for just the heck of it, but thats the power of cartoons anyways.

You know, if you plan on doing more story arcs, you could do what Freak Angels used to do and update them in one lot so you don't have to worry about commenters poking at things that are explained later on.
