New fan to Skin Deep, here! I adore your work. I actually read it all in one day as well. It's so fantastic! I apologize if this has been asked before, but I was curious: do you have any plans to add more medallion designs to your store? I'd love to have a whole bunch of different medallions one day! They're really cool. :)
That is the plan! I hope to get some new ones out soon!
I discovered your comic about a week or two ago, and I read the entire thing in one night, I couldn't put it down, figuratively speaking. I love it, and you definitely deserve a hiatus. You do beautiful work, and I can't wait for you to get all rested up and come back strong. Thanks for making something amazing. (:
Gosh, thank you so much! And I can’t believe you read over 400 pages in a night hahaha wow!
You go on vacation at a nice, warm beach. You lay down your towel and just take in all the golden sunlight like a plant. Suddenly, hundreds, thousands of heads pop up from the sand, asking in unison, "Are you never going back to the comic???"
I’ve abandoned it forever!!!!!!!
THE END IS NIGH! In all seriousness which group do you plan to focus on in the next story? Also, will you do another run of reader questions for your non patreon readers? If so, can I see someone who recently got a medallion react to +(1/2)
“+(2/2) being offered what another person knows is their species’ unique diet.”
I’m not currently doing reader questions, no. I might later on, though! Right now I’m just focusing on a lot of stuff I let fall to the wayside in the past couple of months!
And the next comic will most likely feature Michelle’s group!
Hope you have a refreshing break! Also, the last 2 comics I've seen go on hiatus never came back to their comic, even if they said they would after 2 or less months, will it be the same for you?
I’ve already answered this! I would hope that EIGHT YEARS of steady updates would be enough to prove that Skin Deep WILL be coming back! I just need a little break to regroup and come back with BETTER comics! : )
Have a lovely break. Make sure to get plenty of rest and enjoy yourself. Hope to see you soon. :3
Thank you! I am very happy everybody is so understanding with my need to take a break!
Just wanted to say thanks for making such an awesome comic! Your series is one of my biggest inspirations to keep working on my own web comic, and the latest chapter was a wonderful read. Can't wait to see what you have planned for the future! Hope you have a good day!
Gosh wow, thank you! That means a lot to me! I hope to have amazing new comics soon!
So does this hiatus mean you're done forever with Skin Deep, or are you eventually coming back? I ask because I've seen a lot of artists use 'hiatus' as a code word for 'i'm done forever'.
I would hope that 8 years of steady updates would be enough to not make people think that I’m going to flake out and never come back to the comic again!
Click to read comic!
This is the last page of Reunion! With this, Skin Deep is going on HIATUS! I don’t know for how long. I am going to be spending the time finishing my third book, updating the website, and writing writing writing!!
Thanks for reading!
This is just a question that i have been wondering for ages but why did you personally decide to use Liverpool as a setting in your comic? I am eons from complaining I'm actually a born and bred scouser and have lived in Liverpool all my life and i love reading your comic and imagining where it would be when I walk down the docks to work but I really want to know your personal reasons if thats ok.
Hahaha it’s actually really embarrassing. When I was in high school/early college and still forming the idea for Skin Deep I was also super duper into the Beatles to ridiculous degrees, and I had done a lot of research into the Beatles and as a side-effect I also had read up a lot on Liverpool I made characters that were from Liverpool, and then made some friends for them, and before I knew it I had a LOT of Liverpool-centered characters. When I was solidifying Skin Deep it seemed only natural to have a big central hub for mythical creatures to be in Europe, since the vast majority of the mythical creatures in Skin Deep are European in origin, and Liverpool was a big port city, so it all kind of coalesced together.
Because I was a big nerd for the Beatles.
Why were the unicorns hunted to extinction? Are you going to do a story on that?
My friend decided that I'm a furry due to my obsession with anthro mythological creatures, like the characters in your comic, monster girl manga. Should I actually be considered a furry due to my fascination with these idek what to call creatures?
Eh call yourself what you wanna call yourself. I don’t personally consider myself a furry because I’m not in the scene much more than making comics about animal people, but there’s certainly nothing wrong with being a furry. Only you can put labels on yourself!
