Español:
Hola. *da un par de golpecitos al micrófono con un dedo* Algún seguidor activo anda por ahí?
Lamento la inactividad con el dibujo. Supongo que no es nada nuevo para vosotros. Pero tengo una explicación.

Durante este último año, desde principios de 2015, he estado combatiendo una depresión formada por un cúmulo de cosas - principalmente el estudio, secundariamente el dibujo. Ya di algunas pistas de ello en Give it time, en donde avisé de que debía dedicarme plenamente a la universidad. Priorizar mis estudios era necesario si no quería que me volviesen a denegar la beca y tener que volver a soltar otros 800 euros para la matrícula. Hay más detalles sobre la historia completa desperdigados en varios posts en mi Tumblr personal, pero no hace falta indagar mucho más allá de lo básico.
Hoy me alegra anunciar que 2016 me ha tratado bastante mejor. A través de un progreso lento y de mucha paciencia, parece que conseguiré sacarme este verano limpio con mis 6 asignaturas aprobadas (las 4 suspensas + otras 2 del cuarto año que elegí para equilibrar). Vislumbrar el éxito y, al fin, resultados positivos, me ha levantado el ánimo y ha mejorado mi autoestima, tal que, a día de hoy, puedo afirmar con seguridad que he superado la depresión.

Vayamos a lo importante.
"Dijiste que aplazarías tu webcómic hasta el verano que viene. Ahora que ese momento está en el presente, y que has aprobado todo, significa que empezarás ya mismo?"
La respuesta a esa pregunta es no. Por varios motivos.

El primero, para seros sincera, es que, después de tan ardúa batalla contra mí misma, considero que me merezco un maldito descanso. Llevo meses estudiando casi sin tiempo para respirar. Creo que me lo he ganado, por mis logros y mi trabajo duro. Podré aprovechar el tiempo libre que tengo ahora, no sólo para volver a conectar con mis amigos y con las aficiones que había abandonado, también para seguir dibujando con más calma, ponerme al día con proyectos secundarios (la traducción de Homestuck y sus derivados, por ejemplo) y para terminar de poner a punto algunos matices externos del webcómic, como diseño de la página y del logotipo, entre otros.
El segundo es que, visto que la universidad consume tantísimo mi valioso tiempo y energía, me parece razonable esperar a haber terminado completamente la carrera antes de sumergirme de lleno en una persecución artística en serio. Con demasiadas preocupaciones en la cabeza no podría concentrarme adecuadamente en ninguna de las dos, y me estrellaría inevitablemente con ambas, como me ocurrió el año pasado. No repetiré ese error. Necesito que mi acercamiento a los cómics y al dibujo sea entusiasta y alentador, no autodestructivo.

A quienes aún estéis ahí después de todo, muchas gracias. Agradezco muchísimo vuestro apoyo, y que sigáis creyendo en mí, a pesar de que estos meses hayan sido sólo de sequía y de decepciones. Espero que, cuando llegue el momento, también os hayáis quedado para observar mis proyectos de cerca, y, entonces, podáis decir "Valió la pena".

El webcómic continuará sin fecha fija hasta nuevo aviso, pero no será cancelado. No os preocupéis, que pienso publicar más dibujos en los próximos meses. Mi decisión de esforzarme por un posible futuro profesional dibujando no ha cambiado. ¡Es mi gran sueño, y lo mantengo!



English:
Hello. *taps the mic a couple times with a finger* Any active follower still around?
I'm sorry for the inactivity with my drawings. Nothing new for you I guess. But allow me to explain.

During this last year, since the beginning of 2015, I've been struggling with a depression forged by multiple things - mainly studies, secondarily art. I already provided a few hints in Give it time, in which I informed that I had to commit myself wholly to university. Prioritizing my studies was necessary if I didn't want to be denied a scholarship again and pay another 800 euros for my enrollment. There are more details of the story scattered in different posts on my personal Tumblr, but it's enough with the basics.
I'm proud to announce that 2016 has been treating me better. Through slow progress and lots of patience, it looks like I'll be able to come this summer clean with all 6 subjects passed (the original 4 I failed last year + 2 more from the fourth course I selected for the sake of balance). In finally watching positive results and success, my mood and self-esteem have improved, to the point that, today, I can safely proclaim that I have gotten over my depression.

Let's get to the point.
"You said you'd postpone your webcomic until next summer. Now that the moment has arrived in the present time, and that you've passed all your subjects, does that mean you'll start right away?"
The answer to that question is no. For diverse reasons.

The first one, to be completely honest, is that, after such a fierce battle against myself, I feel like I deserve a goddamn break. I've been studying for months, and barely had any time to catch my breath. I think I earned this with my accomplishments and hard work. I could use this chance, not only to re-connect with my friends and the rest of the hobbies I abandoned, but also to keep drawing more casually, catch up with secondary projects (the Homestuck translation and derivatives, for example) and polish the finishing touches for some of the webcomic's external aspects, like webpage and logo designs.
The second one is that, given that university drains so much of my precious time and energy, I believe waiting until I'm definitely done with my degree before fully immersing myself in a more serious artistic pursuit is the reasonable choice. Too many worries in my head wouldn't let me concentrate properly in either of the two, and it would inevitably make me come crashing down with both, just like last year. I won't repeat my mistakes. I need my approach to comics and art to be uplifting and enthusiastic, and not self-destructive.

To those who are still there after all, thank you so much. I'm so grateful for your support and for believing in me, despite these last months of me giving you nothing but drought and disappointment. I hope that, when the time comes, you'd stay to witness the progress of my proyects, and, then, you could say "It was worth the wait".

The webcomic will remain without any specified date of release by now, but will not be cancelled. Don't worry, I plan on submitting new drawings throughout the coming months. My decision to give it my all to attempt a possible professional future with art hasn't changed. It's my big dream, and I won't let it wither!
