Hi all! I hope everyone is well.
Just a quick post to let everyone know the posting schedule for the next three weeks. This week will see the end of chapter 8, with a break next week. On May 9th, chapter 9 will begin, and I still anticipate updates will be 3 pages a week from that point on. I’m actually inking chapter 9 right now, and it’s going well, so things are looking good.
As to whether chapter 10 will also be posted at 3 pages a week, I’ll try but I can’t promise anything at this point (I am actually still writing it!)
Yo. Thought I’d check in with a status on how chapter 9 is going, and it’s going pretty well. I’ve got the first 6 pages sketched and ready to ink, which is just super. The rest are in varying degrees of readiness (most just need backgrounds roughed in and such.
One change I’m playing around with in chapter 9 is putting in the speech bubbles in the digital editing stage. Everything up to chapter 8 had speech bubbles drawn in, but I realized that really limits me in a way I dislike. So! I’m changing things up and we’ll see how it goes. I’m not sure why I was still drawing them in anyway. It wasn’t something I started off doing years ago when I was first doing webcomics. I guess it just felt more pure or something stupid like that.
Anyhoo, wish me luck as I endeavour to complete chapter 9 by May because, if I do, we’re going to three updates a week. That’s right: THREE UPDATES A WEEK OMG. 😀 But I have to draw this stuff, first.
A reminder that next week’s schedule returns to the regular Monday-Wednesday updates, but I’ll try to get us to Monday-Wednesday-Friday as soon as I can. I just can’t do it right now.
My brain is broken. New pages next week.
EDIT: I should add that my brain is broken because I took a week off in the middle of February just to have an actual vacation, and when I got back to my day job our office had a huge flood that’s taken out about 3/4ths of our workspace, and several of my coworkers were very sick and I had to do back up for one of them. So I’ve been low-key stressed out about that for the past week and it’s been kinda draining. And our office will be a total gong show for the next four weeks while everything’s being repaired.
That’s why my brain is broken. I hope you have all been well.
