oh wow, I just noticed that was my 2000th deviation!
Hinata 728-729
If you haven't already guessed from Shinko getting stabbed twice, this is going to be a violent chapter.



Hey guys!

Man, I've had a lot of journals in the past couple of days... but this one, like the others, is rather important.

Partly because of laziness, partly because of negligence, and partly because of a lack of confidence in the quality of my work, I never uploaded to heavily trafficked sites like Webtoons/Tapastic. I now look at that as a huge mistake, because in my absence, others were more than willing to fill that gap, step in and use my works for their benefit, and I was simply oblivious to it for more than a year. Well, the fish says no more!

I know a lot of you may be readers that came to my dA page after the impersonator's Webtoons account was deleted. If Webtoons is your preferred format, and you don't mind turning your head sideways to read all the double-page spreads, then rejoice!

I have finished uploading and am glad to announce the launch of my Webtoons and Tapas accounts:
Webtoons:… (I use the name Vfish on this site)
Tapas: (I'm verticalfish here)

Those sites are not exactly amenable to page-by-page uploads the way smackjeeves and deviantArt are, so I'll have to figure out a release schedule - whether to cut chapters into small 4-8 page chunks and release more frequently (every 1-2 weeks), or release a chapter at a time, which would take more time (>2 months per release).

My smackjeeves chugs on as always, for manga-style format reading:

I am sort of, kind of... OK, I'm just plain terrible at promoting my own work. I realized that when I found out that the fake Webtoons account had 1.2 million views and 11,600 subscribers in a 12-month period, which is about the same as the cumulative total views of the almost 2,000 deviations on my deviantArt page over 10 years...

When I thought that, I realized... I don't even submit to the groups on dA anymore, where I used to put my TSB pages. In fact, I haven't done it in years. Does anybody know any good groups where I could submit my pages to expand my readership? If anybody has any suggestions, I'm all ears!

Thanks so much for your support and readership.

Thanks bro!

I'm going through a bit of stress nowadays with this plagiarism thing.
BTW, the guy who was plagiarizing me had this thing called "SaturdayPM" on his Patreon account. Not sure if he was stealing stuff from you guys too. Just wanted to let you know, just in case.

Check my journal for links, if you wanna investigate.

Hi there! I found your page rather randomly, but I'm glad I did! Your drawing tutorials are extremely informative and helpful and, though I've just started reading it, Hinata seems quite interesting! You sir have earned yourself another Watcher!
