About Sundown

Mon Aug 20, 2018, 3:30 PM
EDIT: Gonna re-read the whole thing. Wish me luck lads ;)

Hey everyone! It's nearly midnight here so please excuse the rambling and probable bad grammar and spelling, but I wanted to say something. 

This may sound really dumb, cause Sundown is just a little MC comic, but starting it (and Rift) was one of the best things I've ever done. Every comment you guys post on it, every piece of fanart, every message I get about it warms my heart so much. It would be impossible for me to reply to absolutely everything but I wanted to let you know that I read everything that is posted, and god I appreciate it. I adore reading the discussions in the comments, breaking down the story and the characters and making guesses as to what's going to happen next. I love reading the big long comments that people post when something dramatic happens, or if there's a page focusing on character growth. I honestly can't believe that the comic, with all its bad art and it's flaws, has garnered so much attention, and I appreciate it so much that people read it and like it. It's my special interest, and I work very hard on it, and it means so much to me that it's something people can enjoy.

I was looking through some pages this evening (specifically, those recent pages about notch's backstory with him and cat) and it struck me just how lucky I am that people endulge me and allow me to tell my stories. I read all the comments at the end of part 1, all the people wanting part 2 and liking the end of part 1, and guys it made me feel so happy. I know it's a tiny niche thing compared to most comics out there, and my art and storytelling has a long way to go, and I really should appreciate my readers more. But it's such a lovely feeling and I get such a wonderful sense of community from this fanbase. 

So yeah. Just wanted to say thanks.

No sweat, it's actually very hard to find a still ongoing minecraft comic.

No problem, Beanz~! My sleepy brain can't really go into depth about how amazing the whole journey's been so far but, it's really a great story with such fun and interesting characters. I look forward to your updates all the time. :D!!

Hey, your stories are great. They seem to come straight from the heart, and I absolutely love your art. I still have a hard time believing that you're self-taught: the colors and shading are so amazing, not to mention the general plot of Sundown. Seriously, it's one of those things I look forward to. I loved Rift and I love Sundown, so keep at it. I would die if I didn't have Cat and Stevie and Keshin and everyone to laugh at and fangirl over. All your watchers love your comic and give you lots of support for it :D and we love your great art. I'm not surprised that you've gotten so far and attracted all this attention. I want to say, thanks for sharing your art and your stories with us. It's a great part of DeviantArt. :happybounce: Hug Nod Clap Hi! Woohooooo! Boing!

Buddy, when my friend told me about this comic, I wasn't really expecting much. however, you surprised me, and don't sell yourself short. Most people really like your art and style, and it's better than some things I see on here. I'm glad I got here when I did so I can wait for the updates with people.

"Sundown is just a little MC comic" that's over 350 pages and is still going.

Seriously though, thank you for making Sundown. I know putting a bunch of effort into something that's a fanfic can be difficult for some people, so the fact that you are putting all this effort into this Minecraft comic is... really awesome. It's something that you should be proud of.

I may not have been with this comic since the beginning, but I intend to stick with it until the end.

It's not "just" a little MC comic. It's a story, it's your story and you decided to share it with us
We love it, we love the characters, we love you, because you took that wonderful world you imagined and you shared it with us *hug*

Sundown characters each have their own personalities, and that’s always so hard to find, yet you pull it off flawlessly! I’m just so impressed!

Sundown is amazing, and so was Rift. It's beautiful to have seen it grow from a simple ask series to a full blown comic.
You inspired me to start drawing digitally and in the beginning my style was heavily inspired by yours. When you replied to me on how to start a comic I could barely contain my happiness! (Even though I have not yet made a full fledged comic... I mean.. I started? Sorta.. It's really more difficult than it seems ._.)

You're an amazing story teller, and just like me, I know you have inspired and will inspire many more people <3

Not going to lie when I saw "About Sundown" in my notification feed I thought you were gonna be like "Yea bored now moving on to something else" and that would've just sucked xD

I found you through Rift.. So long ago, I can't even remember exactly when it was. But! I've been here long enough to see your art improve and I'm absolutely blown away by the progress you've made- Which sounds weird because I'm only 15 and saying that makes me feel very, very old. 
Anyway, I'm getting off topic. The point is- Even with flaws, this comic is amazing, and so is the rest of your work! It's a huge inspiration to me, and I always enjoy seeing new stuff from you. So.. I guess, also thank you! For continuing to create art and tell stories and just be you! <333

Never call your art bad, it's amazing!
I found Sundown when it was on page 245, through Tomboy, and was interested, but didn't read it at the time.  Then, when it was on page 322, I found it again, read through the whole comic in two days.  I fell in love with the art style, characters, and story.  Before I got a DA account I would check for uploads constantly, not wanting to miss anything.  The past few months have been hard for me, and Sundown uploads were the highlight of my days!  And I still get happy whenever I see a new page out!

Sorry for rambling, lol!  I just felt like I had to say that, as it didn't fit anywhere before.  Have a great day, and you're welcome! :D

I normally don't post comments out of sheer fear and pressure, but I'm gonna force myself to do this.
Beanz, I absolutely love your comics, I've been around since the halfway point of Rift and I'm so happy I found you. This little community I've stumbled into has brought me so much happiness over the months and I couldn't be more thankful.
Thank you for everything, keep up the amazing work! <3

Beanz, if I hadn't found you, I don't know where I'd be! I love your work, your style, your characters, your storylines... i could literally go on forever if I had the time. You are SO very welcome and so lucky to have people supporting you like they do.
