Well if these are examples of something to be paid for, I'm glad I never spent a dime.
TG Captions are an underappreciated form of storytelling. Finding 69 images, captioning each one, and telling a coherent story throughout the series takes a massive amount of time and work. It's really no different than writing a short story, only its illustrated.Kudos to you, Nikki - this is some amazing work, and I'm more than happy to spread the word.
I'm glad you didn't either. Obviously, this sort of thing isn't for you, and I'd hate for anyone to have spent money on something they don't like.
Awesome! I was wondering if I would ever be able to read these long storys again! Thanksss
Read 'em while you can. They're only going to be available for the rest of the month.
I always appreciate your hard work. thanks for releasing these. ignore the assholes who cant bother to do their own captions, but have plenty of time to criticize.
I tend not to pay that much attention to naysayers (unless it's the majority of response for a piece). I recognize that not everything is for everyone, and it's even more true when dealing with this genre. My work isn't perfect - far, far from it - so I'm just glad anyone at all likes it.
Thanks for posting these many panel stories for free viewing. Your individual panel stories show creativity both in writing and modifying the photos. The many panel efforts are incredible. I'm happy for you that these efforts are helping you with your finances.cindy_bee
You're welcome. I've said it before, but I'll say it again: without this, I don't know where I'd be financially. So, thank you all too. Even those of you who haven't been able to support my Patreon help me by keeping this blog front and center (within the genre), which in turn helps me gain more support. It all helps, regardless of whether you know it or not, so again, thank you.
just the amount of time spent in what I assume is photoshop makes those stories a full time job. I have tried my hand at photo editing and couldnt get anything worthwhile out it and stick to normal poorly designed caps as a result. so yes some of us who do caps certainly appreciate your labors. there are so few story driven captioners anymore and most do twitter style 144 character captions these days which are repetitive. so my hats off to you nikki, your keeping the community together and the art alive.
That's actually why I spend so little time reading captions anymore. I want something a little more than a single sentence on top of a photo. Those sorts of captions just don't do it for me. I'm just happy other people, like me, want something more out of their dirty pictures and stories.
The stories are great! You should do this more often.
Thanks. But as I've said before, I have to make it worthwhile for people to become my Patreon Supporters. So, this isn't going to be a regular thing (once every few months, probably).
I've always loved your stories, and I've been on the fence about subscribing for awhile, but one thing I wanted to know was if you use Flickr for all your stories, or just these. It's just that it runs like an inebriated mule on my phone, so I'll have to actually sit at my desk to read these.Oh well, I'm sure it'll be worth it!
I do use Flickr for everything, mostly because it's better with Patreon than other image hosting sites.
