Hello! in case you didn't catch the title of this blog my name is Kaitlin, and this is the silly little blog where I post the majority of my art.
I live in Southern California, and am currently studying art and animation here and am an aspiring Story Board Artist
Ahaha, yeah, I do enjoy those things listed above! But they’re by no means the only things I enjoy.
And if by “themes” you mean “something starts off as something stereotypical for it’s style/genre but becomes something totally different and much darker by the end” that’s kind of a hard question to answer, because it all depends on what you were expecting in the first place??
There may be some moments where things don’t go in the direction you think they would, and you might be surprised by something scary or cry at a sad moment.
Surprising readers and keeping them guessing is one way to make a good story great. (A story where you predict everything is kinda boring!). But I’m not going to go “Haha, you thought it was gonna be X but it’s really Y, LOL!!!” if that’s what you’re thinking. It’s never my intention to “lure” people into thinking my story is something that it’s not, I’m just trying to tell a story, simple as that.
I think like life and people, things start out simply, but become more complex as things progress. You may learn things about yourself and others you didn’t expect and might not know how to handle, and one event can change your whole view on the world. But how you react and handle these changes defines who you are.
Life is full of scary things and sad things, but also full of happy things and wonderful things! And I guess that’s one of the themes of the comic, that how “bad” or “good” something is depends on how you perceive it.
Sorry if I’m being vague! I hope this answers your question! Thank you and have a nice day :>
Awww, thank you anon! I hope it’s in an animated series, too! That’s one of my dreams :)
Hi! Oh wow, thank you! I’m glad you liked the old version and have stuck with me this long.
If the first draft of the comic taught me anything is that you REALLY need to plan out and script your story, have a firm understanding of who the characters are, what their motivations are, and how they relate to the world around them.
I thought I had a clear enough vision at the time to just write and board straight out of my head, but there were so many scenes and pieces of dialogue that didn’t relate to the plot and/or could be moved to make the storytelling more effective and concise.
I’m currently in the process of fleshing out the world and characters and writing down the script for the first few chapters.
I can say that they will be…very different…but at the same time very familiar to what you guys read in the first chapter.
Many of the same events will play out, but in different ways. The characters you know will have the same. Different personalities, back stories, and appearances, some even have different names. But at the core, are the same characters you read about, just more refined and fleshed out over the years.
But I think these changes were all for the best and contribute more to the themes and narratives I want to convey.
Anyways, thank you for being so patient with me these last few years! My stories are something I don’t think I’ll ever give up, they’re a huge part of who I am and It’s my ultimate goal to share them with the world. I just want to make sure that when I do it, it’s the best it can be.
As for test panels, I think you may see one, along with other bits of concept art fairly soon!
