MMX:U49 - S1Ch19: The Evil Settles Up (Page 5) by IrregularSaturn MMX:U49 - S1Ch19: The Evil Settles Up (Page 5) by IrregularSaturn

Took a few months longer than I expected, but after 133 pages the first season of Mega Man X: Unit 49 is finished! Before I go spend the rest of my vacation writing dozens of articles for the outdated Wiki, I need your feedback more than ever.

  1. Regarding the size of the page. I've already decided that three rows (four occasionally) of panels are a good format, but some times I have to reduce the size of panels so they'll fit in the row. Do you think it's okay if I increase the width of the pages? The current size is 1250px, I would feel more comfortable using around 1400px.

  2. In terms of technique and storywise, what's the best point of my comics? What I'm lacking of? 

  3. The essential story is already written, but there's a lot of space to fill with new ideas! Maybe a good fitting suggestion could be used some day. What would you like to see in Mega Man X: Unit 49?

  4. In one week the last year of high school will start, and adult life is also coming very close. I like so much making this comic, but I REALLY put a lot of effort and time on this, leaving me too busy to do other things and even studyA friend recommended me to sign up on Patreon or a similar site and start raising donations, like the guy in charge of SMBZ recently did. Nintendo shut down his project, but I think that's not breaking the fair use law, the public is just donating to him and not buying SMBZ.
    Knowing Capcom isn't a dick with fan projects like Nintendo and I don't have so much notoriety, if I started a project on Patreon, would you back it? I also need some kind of reward for the people, and that would be showing them days or a week before releasing on DeviantArt and SmackJeeves. That would also require a publishing schedule. Would you agree with that? Any other suggestions for the rewards?

  5. (Regarding the first statements of the fourth topic) I currently only have my brother :iconthn001: helping me with sprites (e.g. Sewer Jailrat and CTI-026 Gladius), but I still have an overwhelming quantity of work and that delays even more the production of the pages. If you are a spriter that is learning or is already experienced with the Mega Man X Playstation style and would like to help the project, please contact me through a private message. I will be eternally grateful for this and your name will be linked in the credits of every appearance of your works.

  6. Regarding the Main Page (Journal), some of you should have noticed there's a "Featured Art" section, where I'm putting some drawings of the comic and and fanarts. Please notify me if you've made anything, so I can add it to the journal. Also, if I find the right situation your drawing can be part of the comic!

  7. That's the least important topic for now, but I was thinking of starting a YouTube channel with a monthly dev vlog of the comic, containing Q&A and etc. I'd make some effort to speak english in a video if you watch it.
Yeah, that's a lot. No need to bother answering all of them if you don't feel you have anything to add.

As shown in the previous page, the Neo Maverick Army is not only made of a few commanders and mass produced units. There are plenty of rebel and common Reploids that decided to turn against mankind for one last time and designing every single one of them takes a lot of time. I'm thinking of opening a "Submit Your Maverick" section in the journal, so people can send their characters. However, I'll have to establish some rules. I might post something about this tomorrow.

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.
Alia sprite by FXFreitas and kensuyjin33.
Textures from X8 were ripped by Sprite's INC.
Thanatos, Swift Kagecko and a few common Mavericks were made by :iconthn001:.
Special thanks to The Mega Man Knowledge Base.
Feedback is appreciated.

Everything seems to be going great, but I agree, a bigger team would help. Don't overexert yourself.

1- I think its okay if you increase your width. It is your comic after all and if you feel more comfortable with it then it is for the better.

2- Enjoying the story myself. If anything, I have is a nitpick. Possibly an editor to double check things.

3- Maybe a highlight of specific characters like side stories or off the record stuff for fun. Or maybe, since this is Megaman X, a side story about how the defeated Mavericks react to being brought back for the eventual boss rush?

4- I'm iffy about Patreon for works using other's graphics. That's why for my Patreon I focused on specifically GLAB since the majority of it is my work and others are for public use. You could try it. But while Capcom is cool with Fan projects, even they may be alarmed if someone is making money with their IP.

5- I would help, but my MMX5-6 style is not up to snuff compared to the 16-bit sprites.

6- Cool

7- That sounds cool.
