I really liked this series! Especially the Case 2!
So that's why... I wrote a blog post about it, for the "Let's talk about" series!
Thanks man, I appreciate this.
I do have one issue, though..
English is almost definitely my first language
In fact, I even study English literature and have done for years!
The grammatical issues stem from having to craft these comics on a daily basis, despite my hectic schedule. How I've managed to do this many is a miracle!
The script writing process is this:
1- Read the pre-case script outline
2- Figure out how much of the story I can tell in 12 tiny text boxes
3- Write out the dialogue
4- Make the graphics which are needed to accompany the dialogue
5- Panic as you realise that the penned dialogue is too word for the text box
6- Cut the sentence down: a process which often sacrifices grammar, but its intention is to make sure that a comic goes up before the deadline. I do the best I can.
This is not War and Peace, folks. I am not Samuel Johnson. This is just a bit of the fun which I throw up on the internet. I sacrifice a lot of time to do this and am not able to spend any more time making second and third drafts for absolutely no pay.
Thanks for being on my side about the grammatical issues not being a factor which needs focusing on
It is easy for folks to sit back in their chairs and say "hmm, that sentence needs restructuring." It is difficult, however, to commit to writing, producing and doing artwork for a free daily web comic series.
I am trying to be a real as possible with you all by explaining my process, as I am sure knowing this will help future sprite comic makers on this site.
Heed my warning, future creators: it is a tough gig.
Anyway, enough of this. The case three intro is minutes away!
