I’ve been planning on making a Patreon thingy for The Night Belongs to Us basically, but one of the things that was holding me back was my indecisiveness. I wanted to start one partly in hopes to hire a colorist. I did the math, and it would be pretty expensive to get a good one and pay them fairly. So, I sat around on it. Finally, I thought, what if I just didn’t do color anymore? Wait, hear me out.
When I started The Night Belongs to Us, I thought no one would want to read it if it wasn’t in color. It’s probably because I worked as a theme park Caricature artist for so long. Customers showed so much disdain for black and white. But, I just recently realized a lot of my favorite comics aren’t even in color (Strangers in Paradise, Rachel Rising Bone (originally), Black Hole, Lady Snowblood, Uzumaki, Like a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron.) I guess I was just really insecure about my own abilities.
Also, in regards to the Patreon, I was planning on adding goals that would allow me to have more updates per week, and a big factor on moving forward with it is the coloring…
So, I thought I’d ask you, the reader, what do you think? Do you care if TNBTU is color or not? Let me know! If the majority of y’all want Black & White, I will start updating 2 pages a week immediately. Otherwise, things will stay as is for now. The Patreon goal amounts for more updates per week will reflect on what’s decided.
Here’s a example of how it could look:NOTE – The shading for future pages would actually have a lot less deatail than this.
This poll will be active until Midnight (UTC−06:00) of Saturday, February 27.
EDIT- I moved it up. Now it ends Midnight on Monday.
