End of Sealed Hearts

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.

This comic will be missed. But I understand how hard it is to force yourself to do something you have no passion for. :( I hope you plan on keeping the comic online so we can still look at your beautiful art.

That's too bad. I'm more comic artist than illustrator so I can understand how hard it is to work on art you are uncomfortable with.
