Today, it's been a year since I published the first image of what became my first comic, the boxing match between Gil and Joy.
Initially it was just sketches made on photo paper to alleviate the deprivation of my computer, which was broken. Since I had many scenes ready, I could maintain a faster pace and make a story without everyone getting tired. Over time, it became more sophisticated. And for good reason: the support of the fans, even with the ever growing hiatus.
I never imagined that this story reached such visibility! I felt so happy when I opened my Inbox and saw the first fanart of this match. People commenting, knowing and analysing Gil and Joy. Especially Joy, which has attracted so many fans for being, well, complex.
One of the best things about it was to have established contact and friendships with amazing people as
, who provided the first 3D models of Gil and Joy. Throughout the week, I will publish some of the work he so graciously presented me.
I really wanted to do something better to mark this occasion, but it was all I could do for now, tangled with commissions and the problem with my multifunction printer which pretty much cripples me. The Universe loves me... At it means a truckload of sketches someday. YAY!
Personally, I found that I would lose interest as well as with many things, but the support of fans and friends like you made it possible for this story to survive and give me courage to invest in more when this is over. I will do my best to finish it this year. I already have the Finale ready, just need to make some more pictures there.
Until that day, Gil, Joy and I thank you for the support and affection.
