Ok, I've some major news this time around. I was going to hold off on this for another few months, but it really can't wait any longer.

Since I got the first half of Intervene online, I began noticing a trend in the readership that declined- and even after it's finished and I moved on to the reworks for EPS21, the trend continues. I've always stressed over statistics and readership/comments/ect. whenever I started doing comics online, and over the last few years especially it's become a large source of stress- increasingly more so in the last 2-3 months in their entirety. I've tried to work out what the cause is, whether by asking peers or asking readers here for their opinions on what I should do, what I should be doing, and what they would want to see from me. I've gotten mixed response from a few peers, but aside from one or two friends that are also readers, I've not heard much that's really helpful...

That having been said, posting pages itself is becoming increasingly stressful, even the reworked pages... which I started doing to perhaps help with the stagnation of the comic in general, since nobody really asked for them, but it doesn't seem to have helped much; which brings me to some bad news.

In four to three months, once EPS21's fully re-drawn first chapter is online, I'm highly considering taking down my art from the internet. From the way things are looking, nothing will really change by then- so rather than constantly stress and worry if my work is being read/enjoyed/ect., I'm just going to remove it entirely if things are the same when the time comes... I do apologize in advance if it comes to that, but I'm at a loss for what to do; I've offered streams, WIPS, opportunities to ask questions/offer feedback, and there's been maybe one or two people who have really come back to me on a frequent basis- out of an audience of 91 people on Tapastic, some 50-65 on Deviantart (depending on which are still active, if any.), and a small handful on Tumblr. I've done what I can so far, and it doesn't seem to have done anything to help me- so I'm going to let it play out for the next few months before I close up shop.

Sorry.

Woah!

Your art style is quite the looker! It's personally refreshing to see your style!

Your passion for experimentation is especially noticeable in your gallery.

I say you have quite a lot of potential going on.

Keep it up, Noodle! Hope your art journey is splendid!
