TriteBristle's Profile Picture

Current progress details:

- dialogs: 90%
- backgrounds: 80%
- poses: 50%
- composite: 0%

Estimated time of the next update:

In couple of days! (very early february)

Also have a progress bar up now as you can see, which informs you how much progress I made, as well as how much the production is stalling because I have more important things to do at the moment.
(counter updated frequently, depending on how fast I can progress with the page. So the number can actually be increased too, if something comes up meanwhile. If you don't see it change from one day to the next, that means I didn't have time to progress with the comic on that day.)

Heartstrings is also on tumblr!

You can also read the first two chapters in one flash file just by clicking through (similar to the tumblr solution, but more comfortable) here
in courtesy of :iconponyminus:

I'm no artist, no writer and neither is my native language English. So don't be surprised if the visuals are bad (all I do is trying to copy the show's style), the writing is bad and full of grammar mistakes. So I'm just a random person on the internet who wants to tell a tale, in my clumsy way.

My policy on favoriting stuff: If you favorite my stuff, I'll thank it by making more of it. This goes both ways, if I favorite your stuff, it means I like it, so please make more of it. ;)

Also, please note that my way to thank praises is trying to get the next page out sooner, so don't get offended by me not replying with a standard, copy-paste "thank you" to your kind comment, rest assured I read everything and I really appreciate them!

May the next year be full of success and happiness for you all! :)
And possibly have more frequent comic updates. No promises on that one, but I'll try.

On another note, I've been meaning to make a journal entry about the translations of my comic for a while now. I've collected the translators and translation locations to a separate panel on my main page (you may have to scroll down a bit), currently we have Korean, French, Occitan, Spanish and Russian translations, some have more versions as more people/teams have started translating it (which means more variety for the readers, you can choose for yourself which version you want to read). If you are one of the translators but don't see yourself on the list, send me note (with the location of your translation) so I can add you too.

Cheers! :party:


This panel will show all the translations of the comic with links to the translators and their translation. I'll try to roam through my messages to find out who did what language, if you did but don't see yourself on this list please drop me a message about it. :)
Also there are multiple translators/translations for some languages, so you can't say there's no variety in that. :3 (I usually don't deny the "right" for anyone to translate my stuff to their native language.)

Korean - :iconidontknowwell: - (link)
French - :iconsimocarina: - (link)
Occitan - :iconsimocarina: - (link)

If you're looking for a translator for German, I'd do it :)
TriteBristle Featured By Owner 17 hours ago
Feel free to do so. :)
You can find the blank versions of the pages here and here.

If you do so, drop me a note when you are done with at least one page (no rush, take all the time you need) with the link where you uploaded it (e.g. your dA folder where you plan to put all of them) so I can link you on my main page among the translators. :)

What are composites? Again, I've said this alreay, love your comics, story is fantastic! So the art isn't the hardest part? I have started practicing and I've found that I am not as ad as I thought, I just need practice! Have the comics been coming easier as you do them?
TriteBristle Featured By Owner 1 day ago
What are composites?
Basically the whole page, the composite of text+poses+backgrounds.

Have the comics been coming easier as you do them?
The art parts, more or less. But the writing part can still be pretty tough, it took me ages to sort out Scoots's lines in the next page (so she can still be in character, while serving her purpose as rival fangirl).

I'm back!! (Air Force)
And I'm in Tech School; I come back here to reminisce on the heartstrings comic when I'm done for the day. ^^

Welcome back! :)

New page comes out in a couple of days, hopefully during the weekend.

I'm getting my wisdom teeth removed tomorrow, and this has given me a reason to search out artwork of Colgate pulling teeth.

Would you happen to know where I could find some?
TriteBristle Featured By Owner 3 days ago
That's what the "browse art" function is for on dA. :)
You could also try tumblr.

I discovered your comic with Simocarina, but I couldn't wait for the French translations so I came here! :D (Big Grin) 

Anyway I find your style so cuuute keep going!

TriteBristle Featured By Owner Edited Jan 13, 2015
And I'm honored that I you did so in the first place! ;)

Tbh, this pic kinda reminds me of what I've planned for chapter 6 page 1... you'll see what I mean when it's time. :)

I'm looking forward to it. I'm sure it'll be AwEsOmE! :D

Hey there. I've been a fan of yours' for a while and I just wanted to say I appreciate the subtlety and tastefulness with which you portray the Bon-bon Lyra shipping. I may do an analysis on your comic in the future, if I have your permission to use strips from it.
TriteBristle Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2015
Sure, go ahead. :)
NaitaidaiFoxxoll Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2015
Thanks. And I look forward to seeing where the story goes.
Btw, did you use the show for Bon's irritable personality at the start? I noticed whenever she had speaking lines she normally came across as irritable or rude.
