I have a question...you're cute will you marry me? :p

That was a joke. I was SO tempted to make it on the Springette site.

My actual question is...when does everything restart with your strips?

Artemisia, XD. But instead of some engagement rings I'd prefer a Daft Punk helmet... :p

I'm just glad that you'll be starting back up again soon. I've missed both strips in my rotation.

Daft Punk helmet, check... :-?

Anyway, an actual question: When will we see some picture updates on the cast list. Many of them could be easily done since the characters have already shown up - especially Emily.

Also, wonderful to hear it will go on next week, I misssssed it!

Final question: I saw you have merged and moved the Otakon pics to "Gallery", but what of "*coff*" and the little comic where you missed your flight? I couldn't find them readily.

Thanks Azrael! :ymhug:

Cast list: I need to draw them... and I'm the slowest. :-$ So, soon, soon...

I didn't delete the filler comics off the site, but... I didn't like the fact that there were gonna be like 5 unrelated pages in the middle of a chapter. I haven't decided where I'll put those sketches yet. ^^;

How old is the concept of Fragile, and how did you get the idea?

Around 2003, when I first got internet at my home (yes, yes, I know) I started to draw pixel dolls. I had created this 'catgirl' as a mascot for my website: purple hat, violet eyes, black hair... and named her Mitzy. She was Proto-Marian.
I really loved making pixel dolls, I was very prolific, probably made about a thousand of them! The weirdest color combos, the better. The earliest pixel dolls of the four friends was probably made in 2004. Emily didn't show up until a year later (and she had 4 braids). This is the oldest one I have online, but not the first one I did.

I was very attached to these character designs, so I thought of writing a comic around them. I started *trying* to write a story around mid-2007 if I recall correctly, but I could never come up with a goal, it was illogical and Emily had no reason to be. Originally it was named The Gang (huh) and it had fantasy elements, which they were more of a crutch rather than an actual part of the story. And I was never super confident about my [URL=http://shourimajo.deviantart.com/galler ... 6#/d17s3lq]art skills[/img]. I thought I would never be able to do this! :-??

A while after I started collaborating on EC/MC, my art got better (just a little bit I guess), and Giz asked if I had any plans to do a comic that wasn't a 4 panel strip. I told her about this idea I had for a story about friends, and it sparked me to start working again on it. I knew I wanted a story about friendship, and contrasts. Unlike other stories I've "written", I never had a clear idea about this one. I did a looot of research, tweaked the characters, and wrote a rough story plot from beginning to end, before I started working on each individual chapter & page. So while the "concept" (char design, mostly) is quite old (2004?), the story as you're reading it right now is probably only a year old! (5th version, give or take @-) ).

And that's how Equestria was made.

Any chance we could get a version of your Chibi-Shouri that isn't part of a larger pic? It's too cute. ;)
