Messy Zoophobia Ramble
From the YT description:
I get a TON of questions about ZP and I wanted to address some of them, I have been super busy and things have been hectic though so if I seem extra all over the place-that’s why! haha a BIG update is coming soon!
also a few things also I didn’t mention
People seem to think My patreon was for ZP, it never was, I had zp listed as one of the things I was working on, but patrons were aware it wasn’t my focus and were still given ZP content. I have updated my Patreon listings since the decision! I still do ZP related content, but my patreon has never been for the comic itself.
If the video is too long, here is also the post I made before!
Zoophobia is being put on hold, pending a complete reboot.
why is it being rebooted?
Very simple! I’m no longer happy with how the comic is. I could say the environment around the comic stopped being fun, people started finding every possible flaw and it started to reflect on how I personally saw things, I can’t look at it without cringing at all the mistakes and holes, and just how messy things are. I jumped into the comic without any experience, and without a conventional structure or the proper thought for such a huge story.
The early pages though are special, I TRULY was enjoying working on the comic at the start, its a story that matters so much, and still does. Those early pages were made with love, but overtime I just let too much negativity in, and now I just want to recapture that love again.
How can I do that? Give it a rest, and re-imagine things, develop it, write things out, plan and use my current skills to better it. I already am having a TON more fun thinking about the changes I can make, and how much better I can execute my original vision with my current skills.
I’m not remaking it to just improve the art, or the style, when it returns EVERYTHING will be improved. Writing, story, structure, flow, focus, the art is just a plus. But don’t worry, some things will be very similar, just much better told!
When will it return?
That I can’t say, right now I have a TON of things in the works, including Pilots, and films. The comic is being shelved until I have the energy to return to it, but in the meantime I plan on doing lots of concept art for the reboot, which will appear as prints/speed draws as well as exclusive Patreon content going into the future. So if you REALLY want to see glimpses of how the reboot is being conceptualized, feel free to check out my patreon entering into 2017!
