Yay... Hit 10,000 miles on my bike today.
And got a flat tire AND yet another broken rear axle. I need to be gentler with stuff I ride... The next thing I break might be painful and not so easily repaired or replaced...

It's been 5 years since I last rode a bike. Man, I really need to get one of those.....

Be careful when you're riding though, my friend broke his right arm once, and it wasn't pretty. That was also his drawing arm soooooo......yeah, you can see how this went.

Eh, I have been riding my bike to work since 2008. I bike 20 miles per day.
Never had any problem, save for breaking lots of rear axles, several punctured tires, one fall once a few years ago and breaking the frame of my old bike in half after it reached 12,000 miles in.

Well in that case, no worry is needed then. ^_^

Found this pic while looking for Hirohiko Araki's artwork to try something in his style and:

So I'm going to stop making my comic The Devon Legacy. I'm always split between which hobbies I want to do. MUGEN and my comic. My comic is my bigger passion. But it's just not sustainable as a hobby that I can find enjoyment now that I have a family and less time.

When I was single and worked on it that's pretty much all I did. It was my life. I was thinking about story or writing or practicing my art or making actual pages. That's about it.

Now for almost this entire year I have been working on the comic again. Under the idea that even if it's just 1 page a week I am at least still living my hobby and progressing the story.

But the limited amount of time is making it too stressful. I worry just to meet my deadline. I am not enjoying it now as each page feels like it's work and since I'm not getting a lot of drawing practice either through making more pages or random practice sketches my art is simply not improving and the pages are feeling HARDER to make each day.

To top it off I realized that it's a futile effort at storytelling. The pace is just WAY too slow. I like drawing. But I mostly like it to bring my story to life. I consider myself a writer more than an artist. I'd rather progression be made but I want that progression to look decent too.

I have 7 "seasons" planned. Each needing about 30 issues a season. Each issue will be from 20 - 64 pages long. So to simplify, at a page a day it would take me 210 years to complete the whole story. It'd take 30 years to finish season 1.

Now to add to this: making my pages requires solitude. Or at least to be left alone. It's a very introverted process that does not bring in anyone else. So I am shutting myself away from my child and wife when I work. Which I generally try to do while she is at work and he's at daycare 2 days a week.

But still it's not an experience I can share and it leaks into their time a lot because I rarely finish a page in the time I have available for reasons already mentioned.

So for that reason I decided to hang it up. If I ever get extra money where I can hire an artist I'll come back to it. But this is it. The dream of my comic has to be laid to rest.

On a plus side though this gives me a lot more time to play games again. Something I can share with family! And to work on MUGEN. Which again I can share with my son as he gets older. To play and to learn with.

So I should become more active around here and contributing again. No more splitting my 2 selves. Comic me and MUGEN me.

Thanks for the read. Just needed to air out!

I hope this means that you'll go into scriptwriting and write the next Repo Man script (Repo Gal does not count and should be destroyed).

It does seem sad, but you gotta do what you gotta do sometimes. I respect that you're putting your family first. Now to get off my ass and read the comic from beginning to end.

Only if I can make it star the former wrestler called Repo Man.

If you want to stop reading at the end of Prologue it's a good place to stop. Not a ton of huge cliffhangers. If you read all of it and want to know any plot details that would have come later just message me.
I do intend to finish this issue at least. I've been making this issue for almost 5 years now off and on. And it's almost finished. 13 pages to go. So I might as well finish it. Just won't worry about deadlines. I'll post the rest of the pages all at once when I complete it.

...Are you Kentaro Miura?
Cut me some slack. I'm still faster than that!
