WHAT'S UP IT'S BATTS HERE WITH A CHROMA UPDATE XMAS 2K16

Welcome back to Chroma! I'm rebooting (in case you're new here and wondering about the ludicrous amount of subs for a one-page comic), which I figured I'd announce today! I'm not going to start putting pages out until I've got a buffer worked up (mid-January at the earliest), but I'm getting this out there since I can.

If you're wondering why I'm rebooting, I've got several reasons for doing so:

-Art improvement & consistency: my art's a hell of a lot better than it was when I started this comic in, like... 2013? I'm much more comfortable drawing these character consistently and clearly and... not as terribly proportioned. (Trying to avoid that thing where most people assumed Mouse and Eon were the same character, it was awkward for all of us.) It's really hard to be motivated to work on new pages when my old ones looked like they did. Also, last iteration of the comic I swapped over to digital near the end - this time I'll be starting digital and sticking to it.

-Story & characters: Okay, like, no spoilers, but these characters have amnesia, and it's difficult to write a character without any significant backstory, and last time I don't think I quite got these characters' personalities across through interaction like I wanted. I'm definitely taking another shot at that this time around. As for story, there's a lot of plot points I'd like to establish a lot earlier on so it's not three chapters of nothing but exposition and stuff that looks pretty cool but isn't explained.

-I just kinda hated showing this to people after a while? I want something I can be proud of from page one, and starting from square one again should certainly help.

anyways this was long
stay tuned

and if you're new hi please enjoy my kids I've worked hard on this

also pages are now 900px wide instead of 1000 because I moved onto a laptop and I realized how huge my pages were
