HEY, I'M THE DESCRIPTION! READ ME : 3

Took a few months longer than I expected, but after 133 pages the first season of Mega Man X: Unit 49 is finished! Before I go spend the rest of my vacation writing dozens of articles for the outdated Wiki, I need your feedback more than ever.


1 - Regarding the size of the page. I've already decided that three rows (four occasionally) of panels are a good format, but some times I have to reduce the size of panels so they'll fit in the row. Do you think it's okay if I increase the width of the pages? The current size is 1250px, I would feel more comfortable using around 1400px.

2 - In terms of technique and storywise, what's the best point of my comics? What I'm lacking of?

3 - The essential story is already written, but there's a lot of space to fill with new ideas! Maybe a good fitting suggestion could be used some day. What would you like to see in Mega Man X: Unit 49?

4 - In one week the last year of high school will start, and adult life is also coming very close. I like so much making this comic, but I REALLY put a lot of effort and time on this, leaving me too busy to do other things and even study. A friend recommended me to sign up on Patreon or a similar site and start raising donations, like the guy in charge of SMBZ recently did. Nintendo shut down his project, but I think that's not breaking the fair use law, the public is just donating to him and not buying SMBZ.
Knowing Capcom isn't a dick with fan projects like Nintendo and I don't have so much notoriety, if I started a project on Patreon, would you back it? I also need some kind of reward for the people, and that would be showing them days or a week before releasing on DeviantArt and SmackJeeves. That would also require a publishing schedule. Would you agree with that? Any other suggestions for the rewards?

5 - (Regarding the first statements of the fourth topic) I currently only have my brother Thn001 helping me with sprites (e.g. Sewer Jailrat and CTI-026 Gladius), but I still have an overwhelming quantity of work and that delays even more the production of the pages. If you are a spriter that is learning or is already experienced with the Mega Man X Playstation style and would like to help the project, please contact me through a private message. I will be eternally grateful for this and your name will be linked in the credits of every appearance of your works.

6 - There's a "Featured Art" section in the DeviantArt journal of this comic (http://saturnthereploid.deviantart.com/journal/Sprite-Comic-Mega-Man-X-Unit-49-504464968) , where people's fanarts will be put. If you'd like to send me a fanart, please notify me with a private message on the SmackJeeves forum, your drawing can become part of the comic!

7 - That's the least important topic for now, but I was thinking of starting a YouTube channel with a monthly dev vlog of the comic, containing Q&A and etc. I'd make some effort to speak english in a video if you watch it.
Yeah, that's a lot. No need to bother answering all of them if you don't feel you have anything to add.

As shown in the previous page, the Neo Maverick Army is not only made of a few commanders and mass produced units. There are plenty of rebel and common Reploids that decided to turn against mankind for one last time and designing every single one of them takes a lot of time. I'm thinking of opening some kind of "Submit Your Maverick", so people can send their characters. However, I'll have to establish some rules. I might post something about this tomorrow.

Credits:
Mega Man X and all of its characters belong to Capcom. - Mega Man X and Zero sprites were made by several authors.
I do not own any of the official arts/sprites/backgrounds used in this comic, if they are present in this page. They're Capcom's � .
Alia sprite by FXFreitas and kensuyjin33.
Thanatos, Swift Kagecko and a few common Mavericks were made by Thn001.
Textures from X8 were ripped by Sprite's INC.
Special thanks to The Mega Man Knowledge Base.

Feedback is appreciated.

Maybe a little more elaboration? I started reading this around a month and a half ago and I've been keeping up with it daily as I'm very enticed in it. I haven't seen this much effort put into a web comic in a long time, let alone a Megaman one. Jut one thing has kind of been at the back of my mind lately: What's going on with Axl and Signas? I know Saturn took Axl and Signas (evidently) towards the beginning but the main heroes haven't shown much acknowledgement of it yet. Have they just forgotten them? Lol. I'm sure you'll tie up the loose ends in the next season(s) but I just happened to notice this. I'd also be interested whats gonna happen between X and Alia since it was only hinted at a few times throughout the entirety of this season. Anyhow that's my feedback, I'm loving this series very much and I look forward to seeing what happens next. Keep it up.
