Alright, it's time to cast your vote for who you want to see for this hiatus' 'Ask ____' segment. Head over HERE to cast your vote. You may notice Sybil and Big Gold aren't listed, I'm going to veto them this time since they are a bit too new and I'm not entirely sure how the segment would work with them, given their 'quirks'. They may be included for future segments.
I also realized this method won't give me much time to produce the content after voting ends, so I'm bumping the hiatus schedule by 1 week so voting can last a full week. The update schedule is;

July 20 - Hiatus Pack and Vote for Ask ____ Character
July 27 - Hiatus Pack and voting closes
August 3 - Ask ____ Questions
August 10 - Ask ____ Answers
August 17 - Chapter 5 Title page
August 24 - Chapter 5 Start

Apologies for the 1 week bump, but I'd rather give myself more than half a week for producing the the Ask ____ segment, which will be new content. As always thanks for the patience during the hiatus, I know it's a bummer. We're almost there!

I gotta be honest, I would love to see Big Gold and Sybel do an interview. I want to hear how BG made it in such a tough industry.

I hear ya, as new characters the prospect of it is exciting for me too, just not sure how I'd execute it at this time. As I said, maybe for the next one!
Alex 20th Jul 2014, 10:02 PM edit delete reply
Just an idea, but you could do it in a first person interview form, like a journalist asking them questions.
Notos 20th Jul 2014, 11:02 PM edit delete reply
Yes true I could try that. I'll come up with something, their day in the sun will come!

Woo, voted! I can't wait for the the ask to start, but i'm really excited for the next chapter! I like seeing the sketches and behind the scenes stuff, but I love shipping Vinnie and Galvin!

YUS! Galena is winning!
C'mooooon Fashionista :D
Notos 21st Jul 2014, 8:09 PM edit delete reply
She's got a clear lead right now, I think we might have a winner already, we'll see what the week brings though. Galena would be fun, she's a big secondary character after all.

Shunsuke all the way!

He got my vote. I wanted Papa O because he was so fun but everyone needs a chance...to take off their shirt

I'd rather have the one week bump then not allow you the time you need to do what you do right. I'm still waiting for the Gatchaman movie so your extra week wont even phase me.
Notos 21st Jul 2014, 8:06 PM edit delete reply
Thanks, I think the extra week will help a lot, and take a lot of pressure off to develop these segments. You mean the live action movie? Or the 3D CGI one that fell off the face of the earth, I think the wait for THAT one is going to be very long!

I like my Gatchaman like I like my men.

Any way I can get them! lol, joking...about the men part...maybe

ugh, I wasn't signed in again when I commented. So once again, I'm "Guest"

That's kinda cool how BG was going to be in a fantabulous hoodie. :) But I can see the way he ended worked a lot easier for you.

No worries about the bump. Won't mind another hiatus pack, sir. :)
Notos 22nd Jul 2014, 11:57 AM edit delete reply
Yeah originally he had more of a guru/wise man type of look, where his face would be mostly in shadow. But I felt he needed some ridiculous hair to go with his quirks, in the end.

That he went to the awards show in a pair of chaps and no pants... Quirky indeed. :D
Rauron 22nd Jul 2014, 8:07 AM edit delete reply
Heh, the voting seems pretty well decided already. I don't blame folks for this choice; the Ask is gonna be quite revealing I'll bet~

Extra week is fine, makes total sense. You do your thing, and we'll enjoy these insights in the meantime.

My first thought was Galena, but then we'll have had three of Vinnie's friends in a row. So instead, I went with Mackie. I really love her, and just imagine—imagine!—the stories she could tell us about Galvin…
Notos 23rd Jul 2014, 12:14 PM edit delete reply
You're right about that, if she is any sister worth her salt she's got some good incriminating stories.

I'm just curious if you do the final inking by hand or do you uses something like the pen tool in photoshop?
Notos 23rd Jul 2014, 12:12 PM edit delete reply
I create everything in Flash from the ground up. So specifically, I use the brush tool in Flash.

Sorry I haven't been commenting since the start of the hiatus. I've been enjoying each of your updates getting to see your process. :)

Cheers, glad you've been digging it!

I just discovered this comic and I am in complete love with it! I remember a while back you mentioned that you wanted some M-308 Gunner songs. I was just playing my soundcloud favorites when a song came on that immediately reminded me of this comic. "Making good time" remix by the VFD sounds just like some of the music in the setting. Even the lyrics match up surprisingly well to the story. Link to song: https://soundcloud.com/vfd/making-good-times-v-f-d-remix (sorry if links don't work on this sight)
Notos 25th Jul 2014, 2:36 PM edit delete reply
Pretty cool song! Though probably a bit too 'modern' sounding for M-308 Gunner, they've got more of an 80's synth sound. I've actually got a treat coming up soon in regards to their music, so stay tuned. Also welcome aboard and glad you're liking the comic.
