What's there left to say? Nothing new I guess: hard work, loads of pictures, abundance of time, some colaborations are all you need to make a RA comic. Love it. And I'll surely check the authors mentioned in the tutorial. Thank for recommandation;)

If I didn't say it before I will say it now. The final product is spectacular and to find out how many different elements go into making it, as if it were a film, is so amazing! I can't believe how underrated RA is. It is equal to if not better to homestuck, yet somehow homestuck has the larger fandom (I do love homestuck, but), I wish more people knew of this comic, I had tried to show my friend, I'm still not sure if she is reading it.

HUSSIE ALREADY HAD A FANDOM BEFORE HOMESTUCK, THEREFORE IT WAS EASIER FOR HIM TO BUILD UP A BIGGER FANBASE.
HE ALSO HAS A MUCH BIGGER ARCHIVE, WHICH ATTRACTS MORE TRAFFIC.
(WE HERE AT RA LOVE HIM TOO. WE'RE ALL STUPIDLY BEHIND ON READING THOUGH `alexiuss HASN'T EVEN GOTTEN TO THE TROLLS YET *ZeIntern JUST GOT TO THEM TODAY)
THE BEST WAY TO ATTRACT TRAFFIC IS TO SIMPLY SPREAD THE WORD! ALSO FOLLOW ZE OFFICIAL TUMBLR: [link]

I always had a feeling that RA used models, although at times I would notice that it's painted. Either way this is brilliant. I decided to look up the process after reading Issue 100

I'm not sure if you answer comments or not; but what method do you use to remove the greenscreen and how do you change the reflective light color from green to whatever you need for the new environment?

That's funny! I was looking at all your art earlier, and thought of how much it reminded me of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R games! I love that series! haha
I like Metro 2033 more though... But they are a lot alike! :D
