Here it is, the End of LCS. What began in early 2010 finally reaches completion in mid 2021. It’s hard for me to believe it’s finally here, I spent the last decade drawing these character every week it’s going to be weird to no longer have to think of story arcs or worry about getting the page done on time. I got a taste of it as I took a break while the last batch of fillers posted before having to draw the final page. It was quite nice.
I started this comic because I thought it would be fun and I wanted to practice my drawing. Having an on going story presented a nice opportunity with a set of challenges to push me to improve while having enough re-occurring elements for me iterate and experiment with. I wish I could have spent more time on each page but after all this is a hobby and it I tried for perfection there would never had been anything resembling a schedule. Can I spend a second praising my consistency here? 11 years and I think I only didn’t post something like 3 times. Most of my late page were due to me not properly setting the publish time correctly. Yes some pages were very half assed but that was usually do to illness or some other major factor that took up my day. My point is I reliably produce something twice a week for a decade. That’s at least something, right?
With all that my art has improved significantly. I can’t believe how bad it was when I started. Apart of me wonders how much better it would be if I continued for another ten years. Still, while this comic may not have been a success the core reason behind it was. I’m happy for that. I plan on keeping this site up for as long as I can, the Storyline page is complete with all 50 chapters. The banner images in the header will rotate will all the version I have made over the years. I may even post the comic somewhere else for posterity sake. But there will be nothing new.
I guess that’s all-
OR IS IT!
Actually, one thing I meant to have ready for the end is to have a web version and a high res version of a pdf for the entire series to download. However I wanted to go over every page, fix some problems, and check for typos (which happened a lot) before creating it. Unfortunately, my real job combined with already working on this comic got in the way and I was unable to do this. I still plan on doing that but I have no timeline for it. I may also put it behind a pay wall. I do plan to get a book printed but I think that would be too expensive for anyone but me to want to spend on. If you are interested in the pdf, send an email to LCScomic@gmail.com stating so and I will send you an email when it is ready. I will also update this section of the post with links to it once it’s finished.
Thank you all for reading.
So is that it… am I done?
