Issue #4 Page 20

Wednesday, the 20th of June, 2012

Just a quick note here (since I'm using same blog entry from previous promo image to update page 20).

Well sice I didn't want to clutter and make every single last page with the same promo image of "Get next page ahead here..." so intrusive, I moved all upcoming pages to a new page, that you can acces from The support Menu or just by Clicking the Arrows Forward from latest page.

Also that webpage contain the Scheduele information of upcoming pages for Donors and All Audiences Alike :)

Yes, this week I uploaded 2 pages to move to a steady peace. Thanks again for your patience and to everybody who's been supporting me (Even just by reading ^^) ! Thanks.

As promised here is the New "System". If don't understand what is going or what this system is I recommend you to read the last paragraphs from my previous journal (Click Back).

As you read above you can get the latest page clicking on Support Above .
It's also worth mentioning that donors for buy pages are bigger in size, (1200x1900 pixel vs 610x910 of normal published pages), thus having a better quality image.

I really hope this way of delivering my art works so I can continue doing such. I also decided to add a few other small things for more adult oriented readers here. Both of those pics are the same included with Page 20, but clothe-less. ;)

Also included a new Paypal Link for free (no ammount restriction) donations. Which will re-direct the donator to a thanks pic that I should be changing time to time in the future.

While Page 20 will be available for all people around Wed June 20, if in the future I get delayed with page 21 and so forth, I may also delay the free page. Because my intention is to always have the upcoming page available for Donators at the support link, without spaces in between.

To stay tunned and know when I'll be posting a new page, please subscribe to my twitter or FB accounts (Icon/ links to the Right) so can grab the page as early as you can.

As for the image above, its not included in the zip. It's a preview of one of the upcoming pages, but in rough form. And it may change in the future, so decided to use it as a "logo" for now.

Anyways, that's it. Keep it howling! And thanks for all the support guys, I appreciate all the people, no matter if you can donate or not. Take care.

Leo

Waffles says:June 12, 2012 at 11:07 pmOh credit card! Where are you thou?
Quint says:June 12, 2012 at 11:26 pmPage looks great Leo, though in all fairness I'd be willing to part with more than two bucks for art of that quality.
DEATH says:June 13, 2012 at 2:47 amSo Luna is trying to rise again... and she was in my hands... I thought that I could clame a new comic.
Ill be back just you wait!
TimidTabby says:June 13, 2012 at 3:07 amDonation made!
Hope this helps out keeping the site going a bit. Stay the pace Leo >^__^<
Thee Forsaken One says:June 13, 2012 at 3:10 amI really liked the donor artwork. Some really nice stuff. ^^

Is it really going to have to be buying individual pages at a time? I was kind of hoping for a subscription style service but I get why you're doing it this way seeing as you can't guarantee the pages will be regular.
Thanatos says:June 13, 2012 at 3:56 amUnfortunatly out of cash for this month but I should be making regular payments soon.
Keep up the good work Leo.
Guys like you make work more tolarable. :D
Daniel says:June 13, 2012 at 9:21 amYaay, New page availabe...?
Soriel says:June 13, 2012 at 9:22 amUnfortunately for me, I'm unnemployed, so I can't donate (wich would help me show you my full support, Leo).
Ryann says:June 13, 2012 at 11:45 amSo Bad that i am only 16 years old and i won't even have a credit card at my age,so it is imposible for me to donate to you,Leo.sorry for talking like this to you.
Waffles says:June 13, 2012 at 4:26 pmI haz a paypal and I'm donating!
TSG says:June 13, 2012 at 4:56 pmCouldn't resist, even if I shouldn't because I already don't have enough to live. ^^"
Can't wait for the next page. :p
Leo says:June 13, 2012 at 10:02 pmThanks, I know some of you may feel bad, but dont. You can always help just by checking the page and by spreading the word about Luna ... like The FB pages, or writing something about Luna on your blogs, doing a fan-art and such, or just be happy ;)

And thanks to all who've donated so far, Thanks.

@Thee Forsaken One
No subscription based yet, until I feel I've regained people trust after all my disappearances. Also it means extra work and my hands are kind full right now xp.

Waffles says:June 13, 2012 at 11:46 pm@Leo, you wanna see some of my and Olivia's comic pages and give a critque?
Soriel says:June 14, 2012 at 8:20 am@Ryann
I was 12 when I received some papers to ask me if I was interested in a credit card. But if you want one, you can always buy a Visa Gift Card. It's usefull and is way less bothersome than a normal credit card.
BH5432 says:June 14, 2012 at 9:04 amHey Leo. Id love to buy all the things on your support page. But my only option for it is paypal which is currently only set for general donations. Any way you could get more paypal support? Also and NO I don't have a credit card. tho my paypal is instant transfer.
BH5432 says:June 14, 2012 at 9:08 amOk I see that those are through paypal. Should prolly put a button or something to stop confutation like I had.
TSG says:June 14, 2012 at 1:35 pmThe only down side on my end was that I thought the drawing on this page (with Luna's face transforming) would be in the pack in some way.
Leo says:June 14, 2012 at 4:31 pm@BH5432
Hmm I'll add the paypal logo later, thanks for your feedback.

@TSG
I noted clearly that it wasn't included xp
Dr.Ziggurat says:June 14, 2012 at 4:43 pmi told u this website will survive...therefore it is time for me to leave...however if this website is ever in need again just contact me 973-563-3459 and we'll talk=Dr.Ziggurat
Alekzander says:June 14, 2012 at 10:12 pmi will make regular donations and art purchase til the end of time if it means it will help keep your amazing talent going with AL and anything else you draw :}
Waffles says:June 15, 2012 at 12:58 amHey Leo, are you a WACOM owner?
Nerodrick says:June 15, 2012 at 1:27 amI can’t tell you that I am here from the beginning, but I really like AL. I am writing a bilingual story itself as a personal project translated in 2 different languages, so I know that translate something can take so much time and effort. And your drawing is great. Earn some money for you hard work is fair for me and your idea is really original. I know it’s probably getting old to be complimented, but I just want to tell you what I think.
Nerodrick says:June 15, 2012 at 1:31 amI am new to this sort of thing. I have a PayPal, so how can I donate?
DaBurntToaster says:June 15, 2012 at 5:37 pmgood to know you will be making some money off this
ill start donating after i get a job, this comic is definitely worth money
Scott Bozarth says:June 15, 2012 at 10:04 pmI would love to see the new pages. however I do not own and never will own a credit card. Anyway glad to see get back on track. Will you be able to finish what you have started?
Fatalerror094 says:June 15, 2012 at 10:19 pm@Scott Bozarth

Can you use a Debit Card?
Carl says:June 15, 2012 at 10:33 pmi wish i could donate but i cant. sorry leo
US Army CPT says:June 16, 2012 at 12:37 amnext payment i will help you out Leo. i am in a serious finance crises, but i will help anyway i can
kasun says:June 16, 2012 at 10:01 amsad no money :(
Gryphon68 says:June 16, 2012 at 3:23 pmGreat idea having the ‘Pay as you go’ method to help support your art; however I do have a few comments. For a single page I think that $2US is a little much. Even for HD. The occasional additional picture is a good idea also. You might want to rethink your pricing schedule.

At $2 each page you would probably find fewer people able to afford the donation, and compared to a full comic which might be 20 pages it is probably unaffordable for most readers. So you may find that 10 - 50 readers might be able to afford (though not every week) for a possible donations of about $20 - $100US/page.

If you reduced the price slightly to say $0.50US/page you would probably find more people able to afford to donate each week, say 100 – 300 readers (maybe more) for possible donations of about $50 - $150. I know for one that I could afford 50c/page (Pack of Gum) for a comic I love to read, but not $2/page.

An alternative would be to charge a higher rate for multiple pages. Say $5 for 10 HD pages, or even use both methods and do $5 for 12 HD pages so that those who pay ahead for pages get effectively 2 pages additional compared to those who pay page to page.

As with most pricing, the idea is to encourage the maximum number to donate for the price offered. Too much and too few donate, too little and you feel undervalued even though more people are donating. I also know that PayPal takes a percentage for businesses transactions. If you are affected by this it might be an idea to advertize how much of each transaction reaches you.
Leo says:June 16, 2012 at 5:58 pm@Gryphon68

I know what you mean and I understand your concern and it's something it's been on my mind all week. So I'll be addressing it in some way next week. Thanks for your feedback.
Byz says:June 17, 2012 at 1:14 pmAha! Bravo! very good new system! I like this one better, since you can make proper money for your work, and finally get some real appreciation.
Nerodrick says:June 17, 2012 at 7:05 pmWhat is the __MACOSX file. Is it important?
Jace says:June 17, 2012 at 7:50 pmDude u make me feel totally useless. I would love to support but i just turned 16 and my rents don't trust me with a credit card.
Nerodrick says:June 18, 2012 at 1:43 amI think it's a file my MacOsx just adds when creating the zip. I'll try to remove it in the future, I just keep forgetting it.
Nerodrick says:June 18, 2012 at 12:51 pmOdd that someone use my pseudo to answer to me. Anyway, thank you to have answer. I will just remove it then. Have a nice day. ^^
Leo says:June 18, 2012 at 2:57 pmWait, that was me. xp
Waffles says:June 18, 2012 at 5:01 pmI guess, might as well sit back and wait until the page comes out :p.
SnowWolf says:June 18, 2012 at 7:54 pmWaffles@ good idea
SnowWolf says:June 18, 2012 at 8:00 pmdamn looks like i have to wait till the 21st for it. never mind, it still exciting.
gives me time to catch up on homework and something to look foward to as a reward for my hard work. hee hee. :)
Waffles says:June 19, 2012 at 5:29 amYay!
Violetrosefall says:June 19, 2012 at 8:01 amWent ahead and donated a bit as well as got the new page. Glad to see your drawing skills are as good as always Leo, cant promise I will be able to donate for every page update but will always be glad to contribute and aid whenever the chance is there.
Nerodrick says:June 19, 2012 at 1:50 pm@Leo

I guess so. The "I" make it obvious. Not a big deal. I just find it very...special. I am impressed that you are reading so many comments so I will tell you something. If you ever want to translate you work in French, I can give it a try for free. It can be very interesting and give me practice. ^^
Fan says:June 20, 2012 at 12:16 amOMG YOU ARE BACK!!! Sorry I know this is old news for some ppl but this just made my week :) I have been a longtime fan since the first year and think Leo deserves every dollar for his work. I'm glad you are following your dream Leo :D
Scott Bozarth says:June 20, 2012 at 1:02 amSo what becomes of the loboleo site Leo? when will it be updated?
Waffles says:June 20, 2012 at 1:33 amI cannot sleep and trying to figure out how to kill time.
Ryann says:June 20, 2012 at 8:29 amwow,@Leo you are so great to make 2 pages a week,it must be very hard for you.don't strain yourself.It may give harn to your body.
Ryann says:June 20, 2012 at 8:35 amharm* type wrong....
LostGryphon says:June 20, 2012 at 12:09 pmGlad to have ya back, Leo. Sadly, I've only recently started a new job and have a bit too many debts to pay for the moment, but if I can get a surplus going I'd gladly donate.

On the subject of the comic; the lines, shapes, shading all look quite smooth and the style is noticably improved from previous offerings (though I still adore said comics). The long gaps between comics makes for a sort of odd and rather dramatic shift in appearance every few pages, but it's neat seeing your progression as an artist illustrated (Pun. Har.) in such a way.
Waffles says:June 20, 2012 at 2:37 pmThe page comments system is so weird...
Kare says:June 20, 2012 at 2:41 pmRun Coleen Run! :P
Quint says:June 20, 2012 at 6:38 pmLeo, so far new pages look great. I'll probably give them a better look in a little while but I like what I see.
Graywolf says:June 21, 2012 at 10:49 amHey glad your back! Dude we missed you!
stretchmarks says:June 22, 2012 at 11:44 pmHola Leo,

Any plans for your other site, loboleo.com?
Hertzman says:June 22, 2012 at 11:50 pmLeo,

If you haven't been to the Choose your own Change website, an interactive entry titled 'The Fun Begins' mentions Alpha Luna. The site is currently down due to technical problems when you get a chance, you might want to look at it when it's back up.

The URL is www.cyoc.net
Adolf Mingan says:June 25, 2012 at 1:36 amGood to see things slowly back on track Leo. Yea!!! Been away with college and other activities so I am less to get antsy over this. Keep up the good work as always.
Adolf Mingan says:June 25, 2012 at 5:56 amKidnap Colleen? Run away!!! Luna come back and save her friend be it if she can handle her wereform this time around; and last but not least where is Fang?
Leonard Norwood Jr. says:June 25, 2012 at 9:45 amI'm patient guy, I knew you had some real life stuff you had to take care of. It's alright though, it's just cool to see your works in action. And it seems in this page, Collie has a unpleasant surprise coming from behind, and that Teo's eyes...oh boy. It's always Main character that ends up in trouble from time to time. Maybe not all the time..
Leonard Norwood Jr. says:June 25, 2012 at 9:47 amWhat I meant to say was, It's alway's the main characters friend that ends up in trouble sometimes. Sorry about the double post.
Waffles says:June 26, 2012 at 2:47 amThe link: http://www.thepacksden.com/thepackboard/viewforum.php?f=47

Is just a gigantic search bar--not a forum.
What's up with that?
Leo says:June 26, 2012 at 10:25 am@stretchmarks
Just watch+ me on my gallery at Furaffinity or Transfur for that content, thanks.


@Leonard Norwood Jr.
When your friend is a werewolf, yeah that can happen :P

@Waffles
What's up with that? Why are you checking that link? o_O

Waffles says:June 26, 2012 at 7:19 pm@Leo
Cause I got high.....
SnowWolf says:June 27, 2012 at 1:07 amthat is soooo cool Leo. keep up the good work, can't wait till the next page.
