Current progress details:

- dialogs: 60%
- backgrounds: 10%
- poses: 00%
- composite: 00%

Estimated time of the next update:

Dunno. Hopefully soon.

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!

Hi all!

I haven't written a new journal entry since January, so might as well...

1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
3 years with this account, and 9 years with an ancient one that I basically abandoned half a decade ago. Latter is not worth mentioning, all it has is some low quality anime fanart from my high school years (that I rather not talk about, for obvious reasons).
2. What does your username mean?
That I'm plain/uninteresting, and probably stingy (like a bristle).
3. Describe yourself in three words.
Plain, uninteresting and stingy.
4. Are you left or right handed?
5. What was your first deviation?
Some anime fanart from an ancient show.
6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
Vectorgraphic art. Mostly about OTPs of mine.
7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
All of them! :3
8. What was your first favourite?
Dunno, most likely an old OTP of mine.
9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
OTPs that I ship. :3
10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
There are way too many artists I like, and I prefer not to establish a ranking among them based on my personal tastes. They are all equally awesome.
11.If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
I respect them way too much to be exposed to socially awkward lil' ol' me. :)
12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
The encouraging words of my readers have always meant a lot to me, especially in the early days of this comic. They helped me reignite my passion for story making. Not to mention I'm glad that I can provide people with some entertainment, even if I'm slow with it. And I'm even more glad that my modest lil' comic got to inspire good folks like EStories to also make lovely content to brighten people's days. :)
13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
Mouse and keyboard.
14.What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
My room.
15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Basically every time I post a comic page, because the reactions are fun to read. :)


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.)

Hey mam or i donno ma'am (o whatever it spell) how are you?
TriteBristle Featured By Owner 5 hours ago
I'm fine I guess, working on other projects but will soon resume working on the comic too.
Nbking992 Featured By Owner 4 hours ago

I've been working on a (non-pony) fanart in the past couple of days, as well as on my (also non-pony) novel that's slowly shaping up. I'm hoping to start posting the latter relatively soon, chapter by chapter. It will be a sci-fi adventure-comedy-drama-romance mixture, a bit similar to Heartstrings, both humor and romance-wise. In a slightly more serious tone, of course.

Not to mention I have 3 technical papers to write still, and a conference trip at the end of next month to get prepared for. But such is the life of a PhD student. :)

Quick question: are you making more 'Heartstrings' comics or what?
TriteBristle Featured By Owner 15 hours ago
Quick answer: I am.

You're welcome. The next update will need 1-2 weeks more to finish though.

Forgot to mention, it's best if my song is sung to the tune of Anthropology.
LoyalDefender Featured By Owner Edited 1 day ago  New Deviant Student Artist
Hey, Trite, I enjoy your comic so much, I HAD to make a song based off of Anthropology for you. I hope you like it:

Ponyville is quite a nice place, full of family, full of friends. Living there is quite a good choice, as the fun NEVER ENDS! Ponies in the town are friendly; talk to one and you will see! They'll always help out those in need, just take it from me! Fillies, foals, and grown up ponies, different manes and different coats! Soon you'll be used to their diet--Flowers, hay fries, and oats! Everypony has a job, and each affects the economy! If nopony's hiring, don't sob, there's still a possibility!

Tired of the boring city life? Then don't worry, don't despair! Ponyville is full of magic, friendships everywhere! You won't need skills to fit right in, not as much as you think you do! Find a comfy seat to sit in, there's just so much to do!

I know the last line didn't rhyme, but the song had one of those, too, so same thing. xD

Well, I appreciate the thought and effort you put into this, even though I'm not really in favor of anthropology Lyra. :)
LoyalDefender Featured By Owner 1 day ago  New Deviant Student Artist
Thanks. I think it's a great work of art myself.

I know it's been a month but I hope you're doing fine with the progress.
TriteBristle Featured By Owner Edited 2 days ago
Well, I kinda got busy with other projects of mine... will resume this comic soon too. I'm planning on concluding this fighting scene in 3-4 pages, but I might make all of them at once and post them at once, so the immersion is preserved. Which of course will take some more time to finish.
kTd1993 Featured By Owner 2 days ago
Well good luck with that. And your job outside of dA too.

You know, Trite, the other day, I found out that sugar actually helps induce sleep. I thought about that part in Heartstrings where Bon Bon gives Lyra a sugar-free candy to help her fall asleep, and I wanted to know: Was it really THAT, or the placebo effect that inspired you to make that scene?
TriteBristle Featured By Owner 2 days ago
It was the placebo.
LoyalDefender Featured By Owner 2 days ago  New Deviant Student Artist
Ah, okay. Funny thing, I kind of feel stupid asking that, because right after I sent the question, I remembered Bon Bon saying she actually gave Lyra a SUGAR FREE candy, so of course it was the placebo...

*to the tune of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star* Summer is coming to an end, time for my insanity to begin! I cannot let school start now, I've gotta cancel it somehow...
