PD - Three Years and Counting by Beanjamish PD - Three Years and Counting by Beanjamish
My web comic and my greatest pet project, Parallel Dementia, is 3 years old today (well, it won;t be midnight for a little longer, but close enough!)

I was focusing so much more on the 500th page special that'll go up hopefully in a few months that I completely forgot about this, so I threw together a little art-evolution image of the core 4 characters. One shot for each year I've been doing this.

Here's to another three!

your crazy awesome!
i admit i kind of ..ehh
at first because of the art but the story intriguing so i keep reading and man ...i was blown away! the tension and conflict kept escalating and i couldn't stop reading as time pass i noticed changes the format and style, i felt rewarded for sticking with it.
the art evolved so much but the story didn't lose any of its brilliance .
dude it it has a TV trope page, thats damn awesome (and a pretty damn long one). i hope i can be able to read more as it devolves.

and i assure you i am being sincere and not kissing ass to get in civil war.

i am not anybody to say this but keep up the good work.

I believe your sincerity, it's cool XD

And thanks! Glad to know the story can draw someone in if they give it a chance. That's what worries me about new readers is the old art's indeed very meh.

You never notice the improvements until you review your work. Great improvement and great comic.

man I didn't know our comic birthdays were so close!
Sadly though if I compared one from each of the two years I've been doing Ragtime they'd look the same :P

you've progressed so much!

It was weird to look at it. I'd never put the stuff from three years ago right next to recent versions of the characters before...

Three years, oh how young you are.

I love that every shot from year two is from the EE/PD crossover. I think that literally was a year of PD's life.

I've gotten a lot better since the crossover, but I still think that time saw some of my biggest improvements. In both art and writing.

Maybe the next big one will be the same, eh?

Man, I hope.
