We at Best In Me have an announcement to make. Tooie will no longer be working on Best In Me. She decided to leave to focus on her own projects and characters. As such, Kaniel and I will be the only ones working on Best In Me for the foreseeable future.
This does not mean the project will end or be dropped. The plot and characters will stay largely unchanged, though there will be some changes and reworks to the comic. As part of this the Borellis will no longer be appearing in Best In Me. Tooie will be doing her own work with them in their own world and you should follow her to see more of them. She has willingly handed over the rest of her OCs involved with the project so they will remain.
This was a mutual decision that we came to for the best of the projects we work on and ourselves. We parted on polite terms and we here at Best In Me wish Tooie the best on her individual projects, wherever they may go. I hope you understand.
Stay tuned for updates on the progress of revamping Best In Me for reproduction!
Best in Me Update — Indefinite Break
Tooie here, and I know I definitely never do the talking for the blog like this, but don’t go scurrying to the unfollow button yet! It’s better said now before I continue that the comic and its characters are not going to be discontinued! The plans I have for these characters and the story are far too grand for too just give up on, so hear me out.
As the title says, the comic will be put on the back burner for an indefinite, unknown amount of time. As the very person who wanted to carry this out, I feel that over the months, the others and myself feel that we have fallen out of touch with the story and its characters. The universe this story takes in is vast politically and socially, and the complicated web of characters we have in mind for are simply not ready to take the stage just yet. Over the course of just a few chapters and even with us being the best of friends there was a glaring lack of communication between us as a creative team. After discussing it as a group, we think it would be best if we took some time to actually have fun with the plot, rework the world it resides in, and improve ourselves as a whole so we can have a better chance in going at this again.
When we do reestablish everything, it’ll be bigger and better than what it is now. The comic might be found under a new name, the art style might even change! The bottom line is when it does return, it’s going to be at its best and it’s going to be our definite best. Be sure to keep an eye on our personal blogs(puhpuhtooie, twigwise, and inkscales) for sneak peeks at continued development and work on the comic as we regroup and grow.
featherbook asked: Yessssss I was about to buy the one of Walter but ... I live in a town of chavs ... I don't wanna get beaten up ahaaaa so yes that one. Would look good on shirt. Also you should put the Best In Me name title thing on those shirts so people know what it's from.
I think it’ll be ok on the actual top- I had to mess around with the size so I hope it’s not fuzzy…. looks pretty good, though! And thank you for the suggestion; I did just that.
We may design some shirts with Walt that would attract fewer redneck assholes (that is what you mean by “chav”, right?) in the future, too.)
Anonymous asked: since you said stuff about references with background characters, I went back to look at the pages and search for them and on page 9 is that the QWOP guy in the background crossing the street?
It wasn’t intended for him to be the QWOP guy, he sure looks like it, huh?
