Hey there everyone! I hope you're doing well. This has been a long time coming, but...I'm officially ending FW! Adventueres.
I put a lot of time and effort into this, something like 230+ comics, not counting filler ones, spanning 5 years. I'm proud of what I was able to accomplish and do; I grew as an artist, a writer...And I'm honestly very very sad to be typing all this up.
The amount of support and love I received while working on it still touches me to this day. Fan art, just letters from people who enjoyed it, who grew up with it...That kind of convinced me that I needed to call it quits, after taking so very long to ever get back to it. I've never been able to dedicate the time and effort I really wanted to after the first few years, and it showed. Multiple black and white sketch comics, some without color, the ideas and artwork suffering because of real life interfering; it wasn't fair to the readers at all. If there's one regret I've had, its that.
I was gone too long. I missed too much. I spent years trying to figure out how to dip back into things, to keep it running regularly like I wanted to without it completely destroying what little free time I had, the time I had with friends and family. I couldn't balance it. I spent years watching as other, better writers and artists did what I wanted to do, but better, more consistently. I watched them form fanbases that I'd wished I'd had, that I knew I could have made happy...But it just never worked out.
So as I sat here, around 5 years after I took a "hiatus", I realized I couldn't do it. I don't have a real way to keep FW!A going. And instead of having a stagnant site with no new content, with nothing moderated or responded to. If I was going to move on to anything else, I had to clean up what was left behind.
So! I've put up the archives for the comic, I think that's the complete collection, though if I missed anything anyone remembers just let me know, I'll fix it and put it up right away.
I still do draw, for what its worth. I've improved a lot, at least I feel I have. FW, or Forest, is still a very prominent figure in a lot of things I do, but you can check things out at the above link(s) if you'd like. I can't guarantee all the old cast will show up, but its something at least, right?
Regardless, if you're reading this, thank you for the continued support, even after the comic stopped updating. Thank you for checking in on things. Hopefully, one day, the wolf will go on another silly, everyday adventure.
Catch you all later!
