No, I summoned it so it could beat Fire Emblem for me. Ha ha... ha... ha.

The comments are a no-go, unfortunately. I'm not sure where yours are buried but everyone else is in a similar situation. Unless you're on my main page right now, like you are. I'm not sure about the Notes though?? The last one I remember was the weird-ass FF5 art from Nomura, which was pretty entertaining.

A few days ago, he came back to assure us he wasn't, although he won't be updating The Sevening any time soon. :(

I should'a followed you a long time ago. Your work's great!
ObstinateMelon Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2017
Well, no need to currently follow me. I'm not active at the moment.

Thanks though!

Are you ever going to continue your FFVII comic?
ObstinateMelon Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2017
Perhaps some day, but I don't know when.

Honestly, even if you don't respond and don't come back to drawing anytime soon, I'm just really glad to have noticed that you do, in fact, come on; even if it's for a quick glimpse!
Now I can assume that you're probably doing okay (physically, atleast), and that's what matters the most! c:

Don't ever feel like you're being pressured into doing something, relax and rest as much as you need!
You are a person, first and foremost! c:
Draw only if you genuinely feel like it.

And if something really is going on and stressing you out, then I really hope you solve it soon.
Wish the very best for you! c:

Holy fuck. I'm not sure how many people have speculated my death at this point, but I'm just now looking at my homepage after about a year(?) of not looking at it. I know keeping up with all of the comments kind of destroyed me, and I didn't think of what would happen when I STOPPED keeping up with them, but I'm glad there's kind words here such as this.

I'm doing perfectly fine and dandy, for the record. I may be so happy partly because I have stopped drawing, since I was putting an unrealistic amount of time into it and setting a level of quality I just couldn't keep up with. It's a shame too because I can get the story out there and alla 'dem jokez somewhat easily, but the drawing part became stiff and agonizing. Even my FF6 pictures took like a billion years to draw and those were one character on a single image. Anyway, I can't say that I've truly stopped, but that if I ever do start up again I need to figure out the right way to do it without killing myself. Or better said: figure out the right way to draw without focusing on getting an eyeball right for about an hour.

Sorry if I worried any of you. And I hope people check this page because there's no way I'm going to be able to go through all the comments, ha ha. I might add that I've responded to any Notes that I got throughout the past year, so I wasn't reaaaally dead. Only to the untrained eye, perhaps.

Hey dude, I know a bit about unrealistic expectations of people online. I started up a web forum ( woo advertising! Also, a guy on there introduced me to your wonderful comic) and have learned over the course of the past year that the members can be a bunch of assholes. I had a dude basically tell me that as the webmaster I should be dedicating all my spare time and money into improving the site... And it kind of took me aback some. I was thinking "this isn't my job, I don't get paid for this shit, it's a fucking hobby you ingrate".

I learned pretty quickly that people can absolutely suck when they come to expect something of you. A lot of them end up believing that they have some right to the content provided to them (especially when it's free) by others. And they get to where they can be unreasonable and hellish. But on the flip side, that you have such a large fan base and so many... Uh... Passionate fans means that you've connected with a lot of people on some level. Be it through the comic, your other works of art, or just your willingness to get into the comments, joke around, and talk with your fans. 

So hey, if you're done with the comic... Well, it had a great run. But you definitely don't need to stress yourself over it and you should never, ever, feel pressured into drawing when you don't want to do it. Pleasing us plebs isn't your job. We're not paying you for your time and work. So it's not as if we're entitled to it. Go live life, have fun, (buy a Nintendo Switch and play some Zelda?) and don't worry about a bunch of guys on deviantart. 

But if you do want to continue... Don't kill yourself over it by trying to keep to a schedule, putting out weekly or monthly pages. I'm sure most of us would be pretty ecstatic to get a page every few months or so. There's another artist on here with a comic I read... And sometimes he wouldn't update for 2-3 months. And people were fine with it, and were mostly just excited to see new content from him. So if you want to do that, just work on it when you have nothing better to do. And realize that some wonky eyeball here and there just gives the comic personality. :p

Either way, I wish you all the best. And I am sincerely happy that you're fine and doing well. With how many people 2016 murdered, I'm sure a lot of people simply began to assume the worst. So it's great that you've shown back up and let us know you're well. :)
