Welp. I had several exams this past week, and I didn't do very well on any of them. I need to focus more on school and bring my grades up.
Pilgrim will have go on hiatus until at least the end of this semester. I'm currently set to take even more challenging classes next semester, so the hiatus may very well be longer :(
I've also been thinking about restarting from the beginning. I thought I could continue forward and play catch-up with the redrawn version. But after doing some rewriting, I noticed I had left some characters out completely. Instead of trying to shove them back in, I outlined the rest of the first few chapters without them, and the story was much stronger.
I've been thinking about it for a while, and I think I can do this story much better if I start over. The characters are more fleshed out in my head now, and I'm doing more research on the era and regions I'm using as a base for the setting.
Basically, I think I had a very long false start. I leaped into drawing this without putting much thought into designing anything, and it's really come back to bite me in the ass.
Let that be a lesson to anyone attempting a long term comic! Do your research and planning beforehand!
Pilgrim is not dead. But if it's going to be on hiatus, until possibly next summer, I'd rather go ahead and restart it from the beginning!
