Sealed Hearts - Page 42
It has been nearly a year later...
But I have changed my mind...I will just resume my comic the way it was. The reason being is that I again feel comfortable and enjoy the story again. The quality has definately gotten better now.
I decided I will no longer keep strict deadlines or get myself worked up by my readers demand or else I might fall in the hole again :) . I will post the pages when it is done.
Right now I work on a que...like 5 pages ahead . But I will upload the first new page today!

I have decided after a long time of thinking to quit with my comic, Sealed Hearts. I know I will disappoint and anger a lot of people out there, I am sorry, but it was needed...for myself.
To be honest, I am burnt out!!! I have barely any motivation left and the last few pages I have created was nothing but forced. I've taken breaks a few times but it does not bring back the joy I had before anymore. The quality on my comic pages are going downwards because I rush on it. I did it for the readers. But I have it enough now. Don't want to work more years on something that I lost my spark for. I really don't like doing comics anymore. I am more of an illustrator at heart than a comic artist.
I have been working on this project for 5 years now. I have learnt A LOT while doing this, and I can't thank you guys enough for the support and feedback (yes even the harsh ones ) I have been given from you guys. Without you I haven't been able to improve. So thank you!
I do still love my story and its characters. I have always been dreaming about it while assleep and still I do. Its where it comes from. This comic was meant for myself, because I loved my characters so much I wanted to blow a bit of life into them with expressions and movement. For me it didn't need to be perfect nor did I want to have it published. I did it for my own joy.
But now, I lack the motivation, don't enjoy making comics anymore, am not good in writing dialog, I can't keep up with regular updates and I only feel like rushing each page. I see no more reason to continue. The light is out.
"But what about the story? I want to know how it goes and end!"
Currently I am thinking about doing illustrations to tell the story instead, like a storybook. So you still get to know how the story will go.
I just don't wanna do a comic anymore! :C I hope you understand.
I am sorry for taking so long for the next page. I have been losing motivation to work on it for a long while. It was sort of an comic-hiatus :C
But I am starting on the comic pages now again and hope to update this comming friday, and the normal pace will start again as well.
I hope to be able to compensate the waiting with some Sealed Hearts related art:
Hey guys! I have updated the character page. You will find references of the cast in my comic on there :) More will be comming soon too.
Also a big thanks to Pokemontrainergigi for helping me out with the html coding error! :)
I would like to announce a new comic , The Bloodstreaks. A story about a fantasy cat tribe in a human world. It is going to be a collabrative comic between me (Rednightt) and Deyvarah from Deviantart :)
Have a look if you are interested ! First page is already up!
I have been working on the layout of my smackjeeves comic site, the previous one was boring and standard, so i made it more themed to te comic Sealed Hearts. Also a new banner! :3
