Still Alive

Thank you all for your words of encouragement! I really appreciate it, you guys are so awesome. I’ll respond to you when I find a moment.

I’m sorry for the continued absence! I guess White Noise has been on an unofficial hiatus. >_> Longest one yet, too. Bleck. Rest assured though, this is absolutely a FINITE hiatus. See, I managed to land a real comic book coloring job, on a title that happens to be MY FAVORITE THING. We’re entering crunch time next week, so I’m going to vanish again for another month, but I should be back after that.^^ Page 6 of WN is drawn and half colored, but I’ve decided several panels are crap, so that needs fixing. Don’t know if I’ll have a chance during crunch time, though…


Luv ya

    Love it when I get halfway through working on a page and realize I hate how I did something. *~*;
    Especially that moment when you try to convince yourself you can live with it by looking at it sideways and/or skewed, followed by “screw it. do-over.” XD

    Awesome on landing the colorist gig, too-
    You allowed to say the title you're working on,
    or is it one of those “non-disclosure” type  situations until its out?

    WTG on getting landing the job! It's nice to not starve!

    I've had the similar problem of things not looking right with my photography. Can't tell you how many times I've taken photographs that, in my mind, should have been absolutely fabulous … then I download them to the computer and they look like crap. Or worse, having that happen when I was doing film photography … the film, developing, printing all takes money and time, and you just wasted an entire roll of film 'cause nothing looks like it was supposed to. It's worse though when it's one of my paintings. All that time and work, and it just ends up looking wrong. I think I've thrown away more paintings than I've kept. Of course, working with watercolors means I can't just paint over the mistake. LOL

    Anyway, glad to have an update on you. Looking forward to the next pages. :)

    Said it before….You're going to have to dissapear with no communication for 5 years STRAIGHT before this website is removed from my list. You can't get rid of us that easily!

    Congratulations! ! How incredibly wonderful to land a job in comics (tho your coloring is amazing so I'm not surprised they snagged you), and for it to be on a title you love? Awesome! Good luck on the crunch and when you get to WN, we'll be here waiting. :)

    Lucky, getting a job in The Industry! I can understand why you're on hiatus and craving do-overs now. XD

    And thanks, now I have that song stuck in my head.

    Well I'll be honest, I don't check as often as I used too, but I still click that WN bookmark with hope, and leave with well wishing in mind each time I do. Congratulations on the job! and thanks for taking the time to update us!

    I don't mind if the comic doesn't update (D:) because I get just as excited when you write a new news post. 
    Congrats on scoring an awesome job too :D

    Hey, I have just started reading the White Noise and I think it is amazing! I have enjoyed every bit of it: your style, coloring, the storyline… Keep up the good work and congrats on your job! All the best,

    So… Sniper! How's the job going? Really well I hope. Any chance you can let us in on what the project is you're working on? Just wondering …

    Sigh… and yet another truly awesome webcomic passes on, and joins the ranks of abandoned tales…

    Hello all, I've just heard from Madsniper. She said she should have the next page up sometime over the weekend.

     Sigh… well it obviously didn't happen. However, I take great comfort in knowing that it must be close.

    When I emailed her, I asked if I could give Wren a hug. Now, I think I'll try drawing one for him. (It'll be tough; I don't draw people)

    Fanart is motivating, right? =D

    I just keep checking back too. I can't even remember the storyline anymore.

  27. by PettyCorvid

    That's a good enough reason to go back and re-read from the beginning. I think this was one of the first webcomics I read, and was my gateway drug to them. These days I just check this site every few weeks or so.

    For some reason, it didn't even cross my mind that it might be dead. I just keep assuming that it'll update, even if the updates are months apart. If I remember correctly ( a big if, I admit ), the comic updated three months after I got to what was then the most recent page (pg 29, ch 7), then went at the breakneck pace of one or two updates a month for a while.

    This is the strangest wistful/nostalgic moment I've ever had.

    I know one webcomic that's had more than one year-long hiatus. White Noise's hiatus is as *nothing* compared to that.

    I am beginning to no longer believe that you are alive. The comic is good enough that I will stick with it and continue the check and stick with it, but could you most, say once a month, and say something like I don't think the comic will get done next month. You don't have to explain or justify anything to me or any one else, but please just tell use that your not likely to be around soon if that is the case.

    Gotta say, I've currently got three comics on hiatus, this is only the second longest, but twith the best art and most drawing story. i've re-read monthly and check in weekly, i can only hope it doesn't last too much longer, i'm all caught up on aniime and my other 5 comics (not including the hiatus ones), so I'd love to just spend days by my screen following Wren's journey.
