No matter how many times I wrote those last three panels, it always read awkwardly. I curse the phrase 'throw a ball', and it's dual meanings!

I chose to dim down the glowing of the Skygem- it was getting distracting in my eyes.

I agree, the skygem's glow was getting distracting to me. I'm a new reader, and I started yesterday and now I'm already caught up! :)

Hello and welcome! ^_^ Thank you so much for reading through the comic- I hope you've been enjoying it!

I have! ^u^ I wish I knew some people who like it too, but I don't, unfortunately. I'm the only one in my area, really who reads webcomics. :3

I agree, it is very cute! :D

Thank you both so much!! :D

If you ever DO find someone else who reads it, that'd be amazing! This is a very small webcomic despite how long I've been making it, so you're still among the first one to two hundred people to read it through!
I hope you find others though- that'd be awesome! ^_^

More is always on the way! As you're a new reader, I'll tell you directly that DotX updates on Tuesdays and Fridays! ...You probably already know that, but just in case!

I just started reading this yesterday also. I've been planning on making a webcomic myself, and this has given me the inspirational boost I need. This is my new favorite webcomic (and I've read webcomics as actively as I do for months). I'll be sure to give you a special thanks when I make mine.

I've also been planning to make a webcomic, but I don't know where to start! Xo

Excuse me ... Hetragod, um you can forge gems, much more a SKYGEM! into dresses?

Goo's face poking up in the background of the last panel gives me life <3

@Darth Escar:
Thank you so much!! : D It means so much to have Dot X be somebody's favorite! Your kind words are so appreciated!
I'm glad Dot X could be an inspiration to you, and I'm excited to see what you make. Also, welcome to the comic!

Oh boy, I feel like I could ramble on forever with advice on starting a webcomic! I'll keep it simple for now, (Though I'll go into more detail if you'd really like,) and say that it's super important to know where your comic is going before you start making it! Write out a skeleton of the story, maybe organize things by chapters if that helps. If you can't think of an initial idea, look to your favorite things throughout your life! Games, TV, whatever. Try to evoke the same feelings that those brought you while still having original content!

(Also from experience- Don't make your characters look like Sonic characters. It's a rough hurdle to get past.)

You can! Skygems are very malleable, like gold! Dresses can be laced with it, and its shards can be used in all forms of jewelry and accessories. : )

I knew you'd like that! <3 It was a last-minute addition to the page, actually!

Okay, thanks for the advice! ::::D
