early update! - It's an early update! But just one page...I'll have three more pages up soon :-)
Anyway, I have some news to report on!
First of all, Curio has a new home! http://maikn.net/curio/
So if you're not really a smackjeever, I'll be posting more on my main site with bonus illustrations and updates! The site is still a little under construction, but it'll be done pretty soon. I'm also going to do a faq section....so if you have any questions, it'd be awesome if you could ask them here and I can post them up with answers!
Secondly, I have a tumblr... http://maikn.tumblr.com/
It's supposed to match my site...but I have yet to put anything up! But soon, I shall!
And lastly, I have a question. A reader commented that my colors are a little bright and was kind of irritating when reading my comic. Should I dull them down? To be honest, I don't like the colors I'm using in this chapter and was thinking of going back to yellow and blue like chapter one...but were those colors too bright, too??

- @Crystalbear: Hi crystalbear! Thanks for the suggestion, I'll def take your advise and pull back the orange.

@teurastaa: Thanks! I'll make sure the colors aren't too blinding when I print curio :-)
Vivi's sweater is actually a pattern I made, but I reuse the same one so I don't have to redraw it over and over again.

@SketchJelly: Yeah, i have a mac so the colors always don't bother me too much!

I don't think the colors are bright at all, but I think it might be my monitor, I don't know, it deviates a lot from my laptop screen, so this probably isn't helping much, sorry! :I
Also! A tumblr! That is awesome, finally found somebody who can be the 100th person I follow! :-D

The orange on the main site is incredibly bright and in large abundance, making it seem more like a turn off than anything inviting. I think maybe the layout should be similar to the Smackjeeves skin, mostly white with a little bit of orange.

@maikn: I don't think the colors are too bright at all. It's different and vibrant and I really like it.
Did you disable your old tumblr? ;n; I'll watch this one too now anyways.
And a question! Do you use a tone for Viva's sweater or do you draw the stitching?? I tried drawing by hand like that and I gave up OnO I'd love to see a tutorial of how you make the comic pages~ <3

I don't really like this chapter's colours either, but I don't think they're too bright and the yellow and blue worked just fine (: (And this comic is still lovelyyy!)

Sorry to make you worry about colour! don't change the colour of your comics, it's pretty. I was just saying I found the overwheleming white background of this website not go very well with the relatively bright colours of your lovely work, that's all. And your main site is cool. I prefer the orange background actually, unlike a previous commenter; ah well you can't satisfy everyone.
