Good news! Velharthis resumes March 7th with new pages, and for the next two weeks you’ll get three new pages a week (Monday-Wednesday-Friday). Whee!
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.
I forgot that I said I’d post the last weekend of January regarding the start of chapter 8. So, it’s starting today, and there will be a three page update this week since Monday is just the cover page.
At this point, almost all of chapter 8 is sketched, I’ve started inking most of it, and the first 6 pages are complete and ready to go.
Also, Happy Chinese New Year!
Just to let you know I recovered from my illness. Yay! Quickest recovery yet. And I’ve been able to ink a lot of the first ten pages of chapter eight. It’s looking pretty good, and I can’t wait to finish and scan it. I’ll probably get those finished and scheduled before completing the rest of the chapter, just to keep everything chugging along here nicely. I’ll let you know this weekend when the ETA is for the start of chapter eight. We might still be able to go with the second week of February, which is great!
I also tweaked chapter nine, so it should be ready to sketch. I’m thinking Book One will be about 12 chapters, but if it needs to be a little longer to get everyone to where they’re supposed to be then it might stretch a few chapters more. I just want to make sure the pacing is good. You can thank my “editor” for any changes that ramp up the pace. He always gives me feedback when he thinks I’m dragging the story out too much. I take his word for it. I even change lanes too slowly when I drive.
Just a reminder that Velharthis chapter 8 is tentatively scheduled to start on February 8th. Was hoping for earlier, got a chest infection (again!) and had to push things back for my sanity and health.
The good news is that I’ve started inking the first 10 pages of chapter 8, so it’s coming along. And chapter 9 has been critiqued and I’m going back to tweak it, so the actual process of creation is doing really well, when I can sit down and get to it.
