This brings back memories of my gay lover in high school. Without a doubt two options are going to happen next week either A) they’ll talk or B) Adrian’s going to make a pass and steal a kiss from Carter, I’d bet even money on this if I had the chance.
Me patiently waiting for my babies to update.
Why does this describe me oh so accurately?
i love gudetama so muchhhhh
Anyone feel like rereading the whole thing and hope the update comes in at the end??
i read the david backstory……………………… feel like crying intensly
Every time I refresh and the new page isn’t up I just take a deep breath and keep repeating to myself: Monday. Monday. Monday.
Guys I need help
MONDAY JUST DIED
Externally: calm down casper the update will come today its monday
I was anxious about coming here since some people can get really passionate when we are delayed, but your comments are lovely! Thank you everyone for your understanding! We really appreciate your patience. Hazel has been working hard all day and yesterday on these pages. Cheer her on!
We still got a few hours ahead of us, but feel free to ask me questions while we wait!
Wait, oh my god. Like ask questions HEre? NoW?
I suppose this isn’t really a question at all but just, I want to say how much I love this comic? Like, I dunno, it’s just so nice and I enjoy reading it so much and the amount of effort and time clearly put into it is so amazing and kinda inspiring and like, the noticeable improvement in both characterization and the art style is just, wowie. Thank you both so much for your time and effort, it’s clearly much appreciated by many.
Aww thank you so much Casper! That’s so nice of you! Thank you for sticking with us!
“Hazel has been working hard all day and yesterday on these pages”
shes working on three pages at once so we can make our print deadline!
Ooh i see
ARE YOU TELLING ME THERE GONNA BE A TRIPLE UPDATE
NO. We are making a backlog!
Okay I don’t have a question to ask but I just wanna say thanks for all the work you and hazel put into this. I know we can be impatient but we still appreciate all the effort you guys put into ARH ‘v’
Thank you! I understand, we’re not the most punctual people, and waiting a week between these pages is rough since not a whole lot happens each week! The story is meant to be read all at once, so you guys have to deal with a lot of suspense. But hearing your feedback every week makes this really worthwhile, so thank you for being there!
I wonder, did either of you study any of this whole process to make this web comic, before starting out? :)
Hell no. We jumped right in.
I don’t know if I would recommend that.
That is so awesome :) I keep reading it over and over and the progress is amazing. Do you plan to study and/or work on these kinds of things in the future (on a bigger scale/full-time)? Never expected to find a Bakuman style writer-artist combo on my favorite genre. So cool ^^
We’re going to keep making comics in the future! I don’t know about a bigger scale, but we will be making another story when we finish ARH. I’m toying with the idea of going more pro for the next story, but we will see when the time comes! We really enjoy being independent, but we don’t get much $$$. Granted going to a publisher means meager $$$ and losing all your rights and shit. I dunno, we will see!
Yeah, the $ part has always been difficult for an artist.
I just moved 13500km away from homeland, but once I find a decent job here, I will do my part to support you two as many others have on Patreon :) Thank you very much for the hard work and dedication.
Take care of yourself first :> Thank you for your kind words.
You guys are so kind putting all this time and energy into this comic for its fans :’D Thank you
Thank you Pigeon, I’ll think of you and this kind comment the next time I see a pigeon.
HELL YEAH TO HAZEL !!! I AND A LOT OF OTHER PEOPLE BELIEVE IN YOU !!
The comic is beautiful and lovely, and actually really well written? Which is relatively hard to come across! Now a question, if that’s cool! How far do you guys plot in advance, as a rule? Do you know the entire story or did you start with a premise and just GO?
V1 was entirely plotted from the beginning. V2 was more loose, I wasn’t really sure how to handle it in the beginning, but I had a general idea of where I wanted it to go. It’s a BL romance, so it sticks to a certain rhythm.
As a rule, you should have your story planned completely before you do a comic :>
i recently read your david prequel out of curiosity……. tell me why do you have a need to make me cry the tears of intense emotion :””””””’)()()()()()
i enjoy it when my characters suffer
readers suffering is a nice byproduct
but jesus christ that was sad to read. like how do you not get depressed writing this stuff?
Nah, I’m a cold bastard. But serious talk, I’ve been David way more times than I’ve been Adrian. A tiny bit of me writing the short was my attempt at empathizing with the Adrians in my life.
OH MY GOLLY GOSH GOODNESS YOU TWO ARE SO AMAZING OKAY BYE
Honestly though, I dont know how you guys can keep us at the edge of our seats literally EVERY PAGE. The writing and story is INcredible and is the art is w00t Woot
I hope Hazel isn’t overworking herself.. Well honestly, I hope you guys never overwork yourselves. You two are really great. We understand delays and things come up.
Dont worry, she stops when she is in pain! We don’t put the comic over our own safety :>
Edit: I have been informed that I am incorrect. She stops when she’s in a lot of pain, at least!
She stops when she’s in a lot of pain?! That’s a bit much just to make us happy…
But I’m sure we all appreciate both of your hard work and effort (and pain) you put into this comic. Thanks for such an amazing comic!
You guys are awesome!
I’M SO READYYY. HNNG. THE ANTICIPATION!
I do not know, I just keep refreshing the page waiting for something to happen <3
When you’re sad because you’re also in the process of making a web comic and you know how much time each and every page takes for the artist and you feel bad because OH THE HAND CRAMPS OH THE HUMANITY but you’re also super impatient and you just need to know but you appreciate the creators and all that they do so you just chill and forget until you get excited all again
Webcomics are hard work that you really only begin to realize once you do them for yourself! I had no idea how much work it was before I started, and I’m not even the one responsible for the art!
Chill out and watch some bob ross for a few hours!
Bob ross makes everything better
My webcomic attempts aren’t half as good as yours so I can’t imagine how hard you work. Thusly I patiently wait for your master pieces.
Hey, we were rusty as heck when we started! You have a lot of bad comic pages to go through before you get to the good ones. Don’t get discouraged!
Thanks, you guys really inspire me to do better ×3
Around how many hours on average a week do you put into ARH? I know it’s probs a lot but like a number estimate lol.
Depends on the week! Sometimes we take a break, some weeks it’s more. I would say that on average, each page takes about 8-12 hours in the art process from sketches to colour (on Hazel’s end). She tries to do them in batches to cut down on the production time per page. If you factor in script writing, and planning, more hours can be included!
So a lot. We should start properly tracking it!
Since your answering question how much would a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck would, also whats the meaning of life?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bXL2jHftKaQ this comics anthem
YES BITCH, YES.
IT IS THO
also I have a question
Do you think when ARH is officially finished and you’re probably in the midst of another BL webcomic that you’ll write shorts about Adrian and Carter in college or something?
I LOVE YOUR WORK
Thank you Danny! Here are your answers
1) next comic is probably not going to be a romance, but i imagine we’ll still have some of those themes in there if you know what i mean.
2) I’m already writing shorts of Adrian and Carter! I’m going to write lots of them!
since your answering SOME questions i have one
How did you come up with this story/plot?
(like, was it just a random thought or was it something you saw?)
i’d really like to know
me: “lets make a comic about a tsundere and a douchebag”
Me: “k done”
It took under a week.
OMG THATS AMAZING
reminds me of when my Partner and I started our comic.
Grace: “i NEEDZ MY BF he dunn love mehh”
Me: “he’s probably gay.”
Grace: “BUT I NEEDZ LOVE”
Me: “draw the love grace.”
*ten minuets later*
Grace: “NINA MAKE A STORY TO GO WITH MY OC’S!”
and that is how it started.
thanks again for making this comic it always makes my week better! :)
A week to write a masterpiece
Can I just say how much I love you two? On top of all the work and life stuff that you have to do, you both work so hard on this beautiful comic and I love everything about it! The complexity of the characters, the art progression (BY GOD, THE ART IS GORGEOUS.), the comic relief, the serious moments. Each panel is so engaging and perfectly encapsulates the emotion felt by the characters and reaches out to my very soul. You’re both such wonderful people. Please, if anything, stay awesome. :D
I am so excited for a new update. I hope it comes soon. :)
Pretending he’s beside me…
HOW COULD YOU!!
I WAS NOT PREPARED!
I walk with him til morning…
adrian reminds me so much of an ex of mine
in my experience, when someone asks to just go for a walk….it’s never just a walk
ICON! IS THAT WHO I THINK IT IS?!
Everybody lets go! (?
But the food…
100% agree what about the food
Please tell me they ate the rest of that food before they went for their walk.
Carter looks so afraid in the 3rd panel! Poor baby!
I’d say, “HELL NO!!! I need to finish my food…”
Uh, bring ur burger dude
Does Adrian ever wear long pants
I sense NSFW
both of them look so attractive now fuck I’m really gay
is it just me, or does Carter look kind of like hes going to cry in the 3rd panel?
It actually looks like I’M going to cry xD
sorry u.u writting on my diminute phone is hard sometimes and i didn’t realize my mistake. Thank you, anyways♥
