At this point I'm surprised that End of A Generation is doing as well as it is. I've tried my best to read through the comments. A lot of you liked my comic series, others were simply intrigued, and some levelled quite a few complaints and criticisms in my direction. I'm good with that. I value everyone's input, and it's great to see my following as active as it is right now.
I can take complaints and criticisms, but the tough part is analyzing them. Gauging things like personal biases, how much of a complaint is subjective, or whether or not this person is acting in your best interests can be difficult to make of. Straightforward complaints come a dime a dozen, but someone who can thoroughly analyze what I did in a single comment is beyond rare. I can't expect any single person to tell me what I did right, what I botched up, what I could have done instead, and what I completely missed. Unfortunately I'm not being paid enough to garner that sort of expertise, so all I really have to go on to improve my work is instinct, feedback, and experience. I don't ask for critiques on any of my works simply because I don't think Deviantart's critique system is very helpful, let alone consistent. I can't expect anyone to wear their biases on their sleeve, and for a single comment several sentences long that can be pretty hard to work out. Eventually it's a case of taking dozens of similar complaints with a grain of salt and debating with myself if and how they're worth acting upon. I don't expect my following to be my newfound critics, but at the same time critics usually give their verdict after seeing the entire work. I'll just have to sit here and sweat bullets until then, I guess.
Part 13 will be out sometime around the end of the week; I figured it would be better to take the next three parts and mesh them into one for an uninterrupted scene. I plan on doing it again for what would be parts 16, 17, and 18. It will likely end on a standard 6-panel 19th part, and after that I'm done. Beyond End of a Generation I don't have any particular plans for my channel.
Thanks for all for your continued support; I've learned a lot in doing this.
