brigitteroka: Hello! So is "blindsprings" a singular noun in your story (When Tammy says "we're in a blindsprings"), or is it a typo and she's supposed to be saying "blindspring"? Just wondering :)

Not a typo, it’s a blindsprings not a blindspring.

It just sounds more natural for some reason to me.  The actual definition has it comprised of a series of springs, therefore it’s not technically false.

They’re ripped?

Anonymous: Hi! Blindsprings looks amazing but I'm not very good with WIPs. Do you know when the story will be done? I can't wait to read it but I'd like to read it all at once. Thanks!!

I’m also pretty terrible at remembering serialized comics, I’m an archive reader. The first book should be complete by next year, but the full story??? We’re in for a long haul here!!!
Watch out for next years kickstarter and grab the book- it’s a little easier to follow in a big chunk!

Anonymous: Elodie is Street's real name?! Have you read the Hex Hall series? Cause a character there is named Elodie Parris :3

It is! And no I haven’t read it! 
I found it on a baby names site— the best naming resource, haha.

fredoriley: i'm in love with this comic :O the colours are fantastic! i got stuck at page 3 staring at how beautifully it is colored... have you always had this style in comics?

This is my first longform comic!!!  I have one previous comic, part of the Black Torch Anthology and it’s done in the same way, though pretty different because of age and mood.

…and skill, wow. Look at my hate of bgs lol.

Yeah, im going to the drs tomorrow— I made myself a drawing glove out of a sock  and its stopped itching so thats definitely been a help!

Anonymous: What would you say is the most difficult part about creating a webcomic?

Most parts are hard rofl.

Uhhhh to narrow it down I guess starting? Continuing? Time management? Those are probably the worst. There’s no one single thing that you’re just like CURSES and shaking your fist at.

Currently I’m having difficulties because i have this dumb patch of skin in the middle of my palm on my drawing hand that is ITCHY and red and awful and it may be excema or something IDEK but it’s making everything just that much harder agh.

lindseyleemiller: Youve put alot of design and concept work for years for blindsprings before beginning the pages. I was wondering what your current process was for designing your pages. Do you do thumbnails, scripts etc before the finished product? Thank you!! :)

Currently, I work from a plot point breakdown I made that goes over the key beats for each chapter and then work from there to make thumbnails.  I tried doing a script first, but I found that when I do I make everything wayyyy too wordy.  It’s a lot easier for me to work on thumbnails and work out the script there so I can move frames around as needed because I’m going too fast (this happens often). IDK I approach my comic almost like storyboarding—I’m not the best boarder so I’m still trying to figure stuff out lol.  

(and I cheat because my thumnails are drawn at the same ratio as my full sized pages, so I can blow up the thumbs and work from there, which saves a LOT of time. If I sketched out again from the thumbs I couldnt do two updates a week.  As I go forward the thumbnails get more and more solid and i work out more bgs and getting the poses more pushed, so hopefully the pages keep getting better and better.

Anonymous: Really though, a development blog is cool, but I worry you'll dampen the impact of your story by making the motivations and thoughts behind it too obvious. While I think you should be aware of how people feel about your work, I worry that you will let it distract you from the story you want to tell. Having said that, I trust in your judgement and am really enjoying your work. TL;DR Haters gonna hate.

I agree!  I like to talk a lot and explain my reasonings— I’m fairly certain I’ll get to a point where I’ll get too many asks to answer and then will just stop doing this lol.

Glad you’re enjoying it!!!
