MMX:U49 - S1Ch11: Cat and Mice (Page 13) by IrregularSaturn MMX:U49 - S1Ch11: Cat and Mice (Page 13) by IrregularSaturn

The 11th Chapter and first boss fight of the comic is finished! Now it's time for a real talk.
I don't have an idea about how missions and boss fights should be presented in a sprite comic, so I really need to know your opinion on this.
  1. Do you think I should shorten the stage progressing (Hunters battling with the stage enemies and exploring the place) to make it less boring or things are good in this rhythm?
  2. Still related to the flow in the stage progressing, do you think the speeches/dialogues are excessive in that case?
  3. About the number of Maverick Hunters: do you think that having more than two Hunters in the same stage will make things "squeezed"? Take Parade as an example if you want, though I consider it as a "cutscene" rather than a "stage".
  4. Any other thing you would like to suggest or ask about.
I'm going to update the Wiki in the next days, I'll update the journal when I finish it.

Mega Man X and all of its characters belong to Capcom.
I do not own any of the official arts/sprites/backgrounds used in this comic, if they are present in this page. They're Capcom's © - Mega Man X and Zero sprites were made by several authors.
Sewer Jailrat, Ebony Wildrat and Ivory Labrat by :iconthn001:
Textures from X8 were ripped by Sprite's INC.
Shining Hotarunicus tiles ripped by me and ibm2431.

Special thanks to The Mega Man Knowledge Base.
Feedback is appreciated.

Sow Sewer caused another Sky Lagoon?
IrregularSaturn Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Kinda, but not so destructive as Sky Lagoon's fall was.

Here's basically what happened:
Sewer: HAHAHA you can't ESCAPE!

Pretty accurate LOL

He wanted to prove he is a Maverick Leader. He got his wish.

As for how it is so far, I have been enjoying it so I wouldn't change a thing. But its ultimately up to you. How fast do you want to go through these stories?
IrregularSaturn Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
As fast as I can, but without rushing. According to my calcs, this comic is supposed to be finished after 2~2.5 years of work, but I don't know if that's right (I'm not even counting hiatuses like the April-June pause I had to do due to my computer "blowing away").
I really would like to finish this story in that estimated time, since I'll probably lose part of my free time in the second semester of 2016 and even more in 2017.

Do not forget to make use of a Dropbox. It can save your work.

The problem there is that I was forcing my computer's memory too much when making the 6th page of Parade (you can tell by the amount of effects there). The memory usage was near 95% almost the whole time, then I just got a blue screen of death and more than 65 thousands of errors in my memory, and had to wait two months until I could buy new parts for my computer.

Luckily my HD was intact and I still had two backups for my comic in case of something bad happened. It's becoming harder to keep copies since the comic folder already accumulates more than 1GB of files (mostly .pdn stuff).

Hope you can.

Nice. This really worked for the first finish.

On the suggestions, I think keeping things concise helps to avoid overwhelming an audience. So, two Maverick Hunters might be a good idea. Maybe three, if it won't be too much.

With these comics, the dialogue helps move the story along. So, I think it's good to keep dialogue in, but do limit where it's put so it still flows.

Otherwise, I think this is going great. Keep up the great work.
